the PEEP SHOW: Weekly Photo Challenge | Escape

by Cheri Lucas Rowlands on May 17, 2013

Escape. Depending on your current mood and head space, or time in your life, this word can evoke different emotions and conjure a variety of images…Share a picture that means Escape to you.

Where: Brännö, Gothenburg Sweden

When: May 2013

What: I’ve just returned home from a 4 day trip to Gothenburg, Sweden. It was a well deserved holiday and a pleasant excursion to one of the places I’ve always wanted to visit, Scandinavia. There is something stark and beautifully untouched about it. 

For the first time I really understood the secluded, simplistic and stifled world that Henning Mankell paints in his famous Wallander crime fiction stories. Don’t get me wrong, loved the trip, loved every minute. It’s just that I now understand the place from which he draws his inspiration from, the setting may not be exact, but this image was particularly emblematic of where a the murder of a character in Wallander books or in an episode of Forbrydelsen (The Killing)  may have been set. It looks so peaceful, simple and gloomy all at once. Its location, on the largest mass part of the southern archipelago just off Gothenburg, was called Brännö.  It houses many quaint summer houses and has a history evidently steeped in naval and fishing traditions. Its beautiful there. This house at the top of the island represents escape to me. Whomever lives here clearly values his/her time away from the rest of the world. Branno house
