The Puppet Master by pinay-malaya The Puppet Master by pinay-malaya
Power is the ability to control ones environment, including the thoughts and actions of people surrounding you. It is amoral, making it neither good nor evil. It can manifest itself in authority and tradition; a shaper of history and at times a creator or destroyer of destiny.

Those who are in power may be visible sources of authority and yet there are those that exert power from the darkness. They influence our actions and opinions in manners we do not know, manipulating us and our world from the shadows. While we sit comfortably in our perfect little world, they are there in the dark lurking and pulling on our strings.

Absolutely beautiful, the face mask completes the haunting notion of this picture.

Thanks SydeX! I make it a point to go beyond just creating a striking photo and as much as possible bring across a message in my work. I'm glad you appreciate it.

No problem at all. When I posted this on my other site some one commented that "the concept of the puppet master has been around for a long time" so it's definitely expected that several people will have their different take on this concept. Especially so when the theme is about power. I believe there are three of us with the same idea in mind for :iconzemotion:'s photo challenge.
