Dreaming of Ghosts


    Taken with Holga Camera, Closeup Filter

What to say about this one? I'll string some thoughts together later. I have to head out this minute. More closeup stuff the last few days but this one seems to jump out at me. Dreams, death, rest, sleeping. ghosts, beauty... and on and on.

I have been trying to make sense of things lately... Shit, gotta go. Enjoy. Comment and give me something to riff on, would you? Otherwise, I am going to have to get into a semi-lurid dream I had last night. Not the real hard stuff but still lots of id tinctured lady thoughts...

I love this shot. Mildly disturbing and quite lovely at the same time. Please tell your model she's great. I've really enjoyed the way she expresses herself in your latest round of close ups. The way she looks into the camera or doesn't...She just seems so knowing and familiar at the same time. She might become your best subject? Your newest muse? Who knows.

Is that enough for you to riff on?
And thanks for the comment over on me blog. I'm still shaking from the experience. Still a torrential downpour over here. It's so soggy, I feel like I'm going to become one of those pod people soon. Only I'll be a mold spore instead of some mindless shell of an alien person. Hey... Now there's a thought to expand upon. Might blog it later.

Back to building my arc.

Hey Gord
Sweet work. I dropped by to tell you I was laughing and thinking of you when I was in the darkroom yesterday. (yeah, whatever gets me through)

I was printing a shot which suddenly got me thinking... Have I seen this before?..

And I almost had. When i figured it, it was one of yours. I'll leave you guessing which one, but promise to post it at TC soon enough when it's scanned. We'll call it a tribute shot :-)

later

El Gourdo (sic)! Love this one. Did you ever see the artwork for the Smashing Pumpkins' "Adore" album? This photo has the same type of feel for me...sooooooo I immediately start thinking of songs from that album AND I suppose if I'm honest the connection with the music makes me see your pic as something nice and sleazy (to paraphrase the Stranglers). Arty, but sleazy and also calming.

I just had a bit of a "Wow!" moment whilst scanning some close-ups I took in Spain last week with my 127 toycam. Am very proud of them and pretty excited. Will post soon on the forum.

Gordon, I love that photograph. It reminds me of the band, This Mortal Coil-It'll End In Tears and Blood, album covers. All of those images the record label, 4AD and it's artists used, with works from Vaughan Oliver, Simon Larbalestier and friends then, with thanks to 23 Envelope, were and are amazing even today when I see them.

....or alternatively, like Becky said, it DOES kinda look like something from a 4AD album sleeve.

Truly beautiful. There is a timeless feel to it...

I loved the spotlight, it kind of makes you feel more incontrol of the picture.
