Funny thing

Funny thing happened to me yesterday: Says a (real) SOMEBODY to me that, in general, South Africans don’t like new things such as my idea and ‘execution’ of ‘imaginaries’ but that it wonderfully fits in the predicted fashion and other trends for the next 5+ years in Europe and America. …… Next thing he shows …

PERCEPTION 2

Recently I posted a picture with the title ‘Perception’. I referred to the book ‘Doors of Perception’ of Aldous Huxley and the classic movie ‘Lawrence of Arabia. This is another imaginary situated against the early morning mountainous backdrop of the emptiness of the Little Karoo in South Africa. And as always with my imaginaries: I’m …

Moon at Noon

Looking back

One of my first ‘imaginaries’ was created in the period I was still exploring the basics of Photoshop. This morning I tried to alter it a bit but I’m not very satisfied with the color versions. Personally I prefer the B&W. The thumbnail at the bottom is the original of September last year.

Imaginary Street Art 10

Some name it murals most others say it’s graffiti and there are also people who call it street art. Paintings are perishable and so are wall paintings, graffiti, murals etc. I’m not a painter but I can photoshop a little bit hence my Imaginary Street Art (or is it ‘Imaginary Murals’ etc.?). I don’t have …

To invert or not to invert….

I am in doubt. Seriously! The original imaginary (work title for the moment: ‘Water & Fire’ and ‘still Under Construction) is the picture below the inverted version. In Photoshop I  clicked  ‘invert’ and maybe such a co-incidental ‘error’ is needed to look in a different way . From an esthetic point of view I prefer …

A few loose ends

I just figured out that I delete about 9 out of 10 pictures while they are still in the camera and once filed on the hard disk I delete about half of the ‘chosen ones’. And still I am in doubt about the ‘left-overs’. That also applies for the photoshopped elements (“imaginaries” as I call …

The Great Flower Shooting Party

Virtually every day you can see me in our small garden shooting. I merely shoot flowers and every now and than also a bird. My weapon-of-mass-imagination is a Sony A77VQ with a few lenses. This camera suits me well and it does everything I want. I shoot in RAW-format (Sony’s JPEG needs some quality improvements) …
