Multiples

Coming up to midway and flagging a bit, so tending to the pictorial.  Time for some multiple exposure collages.

Stopping by from Cat's blog. Digital or Film camera?

The last two are very interesting and very mysterious.

I am especially drawn to the last one, though all are good ones. Is this your sister Alison?

An ethereal, rather spiritual image, Lucy - suggesting time and beloveds past; passages.

Thanks, I like making these but haven't done so for a long time.

Steve, always nice to see you, you're on my sidebar and I sometimes look in to see how the visitors are! Only ever a digital camera: the double/multiple exposure is just an effect you can get with the Picasa collage button.

The creature in the top one is a very small newt I found among the soil and leaf litter when I was gardening, we get a lot of them. I sometimes think of them as our little earth dragons, but they are amphibious and the young ones, efts, live in the pond, this one was quite close. So I just superimposed a shot of a water surface with some stuff floating on it, which I thought kind of referred to the its amphibiousness!

Crow, thanks. No, that's actually me, a rather gloomy webcam picture. I've a scarcity of people pictures around, all the older ones including of Alison are tucked away on the external hard drive, so self portraiture was called for for a human face! The one before is a stone carved face I posted a week or so ago.

The last is my favorite, but they all have a poetic feel to them. If you were to create a poem for one, which one would it be?

"Grand art" and genuine surrealism! I like it.

These are fascinating, Lucy. I particularly like the last one.

Steve said...

Thanks for the explanation.
