Image Inspiration: Squares


There have been very few shots, of late, that have told me anything. But this one screams: TRAPPED!

Everything in the shot -- aside from the character, off to the side, separated from everything else by the doors framing the scene -- is sharply angular. The lamps. The couch. The windows. The panes. The pictures. Everything reinforces the "behind bars" motif. The character is now alone, hopeless, and trapped.

It's fantastic.
