Make Magic!!! Create beauty in ways to inspire the mind..what about putting out all the lights and leaving your mind with endless possibilities? That is what i try to achieve with this week’s shot, it’s literally a shot in the dark(lol) of a night-time barber shop under a huge umbrella. A quick set up but in pitch darkness its an island of light, i almost missed this shot contemplating where or not to take it i’m so glad i raise my hands to take the shot.
This is my catch up post for the WordPress Photo-blogging Month of November.
Week two of Photography 101 blogging gave up 5 topics to explore with pictures. I merged all 5 shots into a collage of pictures big and small, light to dark.
The pictures follow these topics: Mystery, Warmth, Landmark, Natural World, Connect.
Mystery: I tried to work with a nighttime shot. My first few lunar pics where terrible but I got the hang of it and made out a nice moon shot with the environment.
Warmth: A rising sun was the concept. Took an early morning shot at about 6:45 G.M.T +1.
Landmark: A very new and popular bridge that links Ikoyi and Lekki in Lagos, Nigeria.
Natural World: A still dragonfly was the perfect muse to use to symbolize nature at its best.
Connect: Not an easy topic by any means, I had to look hard but I found a thorny flowering plant branch that had webs connecting it to other branches forming an almost invisible connection at its farthest point.
Free falling, falling, falling as through air closing my eyes to see what vision awaits me Reality’s out-stretched hand fading like a dream misty winds howl past hurtling at the speed of thought a descent into tarturus Shrill Screams of caged minds, jarring my eyes open at the last second as my body turns into an embrace of stony poseidon
Descent is the topic of this week’s challenge. My photo was taken by descending into a roadside drain, my poem expresses a descent of the mind into scream filled enclaves.
