I took this challenge in the metaphorical sense. It is a dark image photographically as well as metaphorically. My interpretation of this is...no matter how successful or unsuccessful one is, the end result will be the same. Just a fact of life.
I used the lensbaby rather than a standard lens because I wanted to blur the image in the camera rather than in PS. The blur represents the mysteries, but the road and part of the tomb are clear...as those that are not a mystery. Sorry if it is too deep. Just expressing my creativity.

Gritty blur and tones. A rough passage, not as pleasant as many would hope, or expect.

I like the effect of the blur, feels like you're getting pulled in to the doors.
