Sol’s rays penetrate,
Barring entrance to the crypt.
Nosferatu’s end.

A Bit of Magic

Resisting escape

In photography, magic is the quotidian expression of our view of the world around us.  After all, what do we do in photography, but freeze a time slice of that world, in which we find ourselves, with the purpose of showing its magical aspects to our family, friends, and even complete strangers.

Such is the commonplace of photographic expression.  There is, however, a more subtle exploration that one might undertake; one that is aimed at showing the visions that play before our mind’s eye.  This metaphysical world is one that exists between dreams and fancies, ever just outside the reach of fingers’ touch, tantalizing…

Resisting Escape

Resisting Escape is one such exploration to express a vision that unfolded itself in the combined dreamscape of the physical and metaphysical world.  Inspired by this interesting old bathroom, my mind embroidered upon reality in visualizing an escape from the everyday, being pulled upward by an irresistible force…

Inspired by

Daily Prompt – Dream

Resisting Escape

A quick glance at today’s Daily Prompt showed me an interesting one: Dream.  Of course, if we look at the URL, it implies fairy tale.

Some of our most interesting and intense concepts come from dreams during that mysterious state during our sleep cycles when our brain provides stimuli, which generate visions of phantasmagorical character.  Tales of mystery and imagination spring forth from these times, some of which have survived across the ages.

Resisting Escape

Most of us will have had dreams, in which we take flight, sometimes beneficent in the freedom that we experience during such times, while at other times the flight can be frightening, as we’re being pulled into a hellish nightmare…

Technical Details

This image was composited using a number of shots with a Canon EOS 5D Mk III using an EF 17-40 f/4L lens.  When I saw this bathroom, I had an immediate vision of what I wanted to achieve in the image, with the woman being pulled into an alternate reality that she is trying to escape from.  The cloud cover was shot about 4 months later than the bathroom scene, when I noticed the type of sky that I wanted to for the final image.

Hope you enjoy this moment.

In response to the Daily Prompt – Dream.
