January 4,2012- ... the old, tall beautiful Eucalyptus tree 'called' me from afar.. light was touching her on other side in morning.. somehow seemed very bright and contrasts with deep shadows were amazing.. figures.. faces.. creatures.. textures formidable.. and hues.. while Pauline walked around the Park.. our usual 2 miles.. I was exploring with the camera..
.. when I noticed.. my shadow merging with the trees magic.. suddenly 'hit me'.. integrate own shadow.. with the visages.. their magic.. bring forward the unexpected..
.. found many faces.. moved.. so my head would be with the faces.. offer my form .... as continuance ..
composed.. and still experimenting.. upload the beginnings of a journey into the often macabre.. abstractness with realism..
in these images here, I sharpened.. enhanced.. deepened... the one in natural hues in thumbprints, is as was.. the bright of sun, touching the beautiful tree trunk, which is when smooth.. the lightest of grey tones.. close to creamy whites in places.. to the saturated brown tones.. often red.. close to black.. ec. etc..
.. used the slide thingies on the download program of windows photo gallery.. hmm.. the more I use.. the more I feel, I need a better computer and photoshop..
But.. one day.. when I can afford to print these.. I will create mixed media art works.. will paint the parts I 'see'.. within these photographs.. will be incredible...
There is reason of purpose.. why I instinctively 'see' the way I do..
