Stories behind a photo #6. Down the rabbit hole

By PhoenixDev | WorldPhoto | 16 Jul 2020


It is a hot summer day, and in the middle of a meadow, in the shade of a tree I meet this rabbit. He stares at me and I don't know exactly what he must be thinking.

My intention is only to photograph it, but then the first words of 'Alice in Wonderlan' by Lewis Carroll:

So she was considering in her own mind (as well as she could, for the hot day made her feel very sleepy and stupid), whether the pleasure of making a daisy-chain would be worth the trouble of getting up and picking the daisies, when suddenly a White Rabbit with pink eyes ran close by her.

There was nothing so very remarkable in that; nor did Alice think it so very much out of the way to hear the Rabbit say to itself, “Oh dear! Oh dear! I shall be late!” (when she thought it over afterwards, it occurred to her that she ought to have wondered at this, but at the time it all seemed quite natural); but when the Rabbit actually took a watch out of its waistcoat-pocket, and looked at it, and then hurried on, Alice started to her feet, for it flashed across her mind that she had never before seen a rabbit with either a waistcoat-pocket, or a watch to take out of it, and burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and fortunately was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit-hole under the hedge.

In another moment down went Alice after it, never once considering how in the world she was to get out again.

The rabbit-hole went straight on like a tunnel for some way, and then dipped suddenly down, so suddenly that Alice had not a moment to think about stopping herself before she found herself falling down a very deep well.

I was left wondering, do I follow the rabbit or do I just take a picture of it?

I decided to take a picture of him and then continue on my way. Perhaps at that time he did not feel like any adventure.

What would you have done?

Thanks. Enjoy the photo and the story.
