The vision begins ...
Trippy. In motion. Love it.
That's parts of it, thanks!
This is the second in a series that I've been working on in the last 6 months or so. The photos are meant to be mildly disturbing, with each one slightly more so than the one before. The first was to represent a warning presence through an anthropomorphic (human-like) image. This shot, another somewhat alien-looking anthropomorphic (if you look close at the closest tree in the front), symbolizes slipping into a 'vision' state with the use of motion (palm fans in the wind) and a distorted double exposure. A 'trip', not to be forgotten.
I really like the concept, and would love to see that series whenever it is complete. Keep up the good work .
Cool. Looking forward to showing you. Thanks for -getting it-
yep trippy is the right word....interesting concept too. You haven't been reading old Carlos Castaneda books have you?
Very creative Abraxas! The palms are great. Thank you for sharing.
Loving it like a bad dream.
Thank you Roger. Years ago- The last few years I've been very much influenced by studying Desert Native American cultures, which is very much [similar to] Carlos' work from what I remember. Times are much different for me now although I enjoy attempting to express what I've learned in my reading and outdoor experiences instead of creative experimentation.
Thanks MM. I like thinking of what the shot will look like, then going to the place and finding it. I don't pull it off all the time, but I'm especially pleased with this wierd image.
You too?- I'm pretty sure an aggravated night was the inspiration here.
Thank you, I like that.
I like all your work abraxas....mescal visions & conversations with peyote....
Cool- Thanks Rolland. I'm going back in a few days and see if I can get another shot for this series.
