photo prompt: who hides under the like?

photo prompt Love's Test by Tomas Karkalas
The freedom to talk what you want is a great achievement, yet the joy needs the listeners. The posts without the comments threaten. So I put the photo prompt  Love‘s Test.  Speak your mind, who hides  under the "like" stats?  Who prefer anonymity to the word that changes what we see in the picture currently?

The world is a dangerous place.
Not because of those who do evil,
but because of those who look on and do nothing.
- Albert Einstein

My eye was caught by a phrase Book of Questions. Oh! I like such books. I see them as the wondrous mirrors because the questions gift an opportunity to discover oneself in the raised issues and thus to escape the current boredom that should be described as the penalty for past silence. As I hear the questions, I sense myself on a heaven-sent Ferris Wheel with all my past underfoot. It is hard to re-view the situations when I was not brave enough to voice my mind publicly and thus exchanged the character‘s status to the watcher‘s safety...The questions wake up and challenge.

As I've said before, I'm very fond of your art and your thoughts. I often wonder where you get all your inspirations from. Your pictures are so special and mysterious and beautiful. That's why I'm so curious to know, how you create them. I've always been interested to make pictures, but I've always felt that my talents do not help me to do such thing which I wanted to do. When I was young they always said I should go to an artschool but I didn't trust in myself! :(
