    I... am very confused about what I'm looking at... but I also want to keep looking at it.

    So for that, I applaud!

    An eallegory is a distant cousin of a http://www.thephotoforum.com/forum/black-white-gallery/156869-lemac.html

    Awesome, that's what I was going for. That and a bit of an eerie feeling. If it's recognizable, then I've failed.

    Yep.

    Here's Paul in real life (with a standard lens);

    Camel Expedition

    & here's what I was thinking;

    Design a creature called an Allegory (or actually an Eallegory with the 'E' representing 'extended')

    the definition being;

    A form of representation in which the presented image is emblematic of something else, generally abstract, like a feeling or state. ...
    Art Guide - Glossary - SaffronArt

    The Eallegory is allegorical to an extended metaphor. The metaphor being defined as;

    as introduced into cognitive science by George Lakoff and Mark Johnson, a "metaphor" is a matter of thought, not merely a decoration of words. ...
    American Environics : Methodology : Glossary

    & the extension of the metaphor is the imperfect mirror of the metaphor.

    --

    Just some **** to think about...
