Hey stranger!

Nice; nothing wrong with the others, but my favorite is the one with you in it - the placement of the branches works well and the floral print dress you have on just adds yet another layer.

I'm in love with that tree.

Where do you find such cool music?

Re: ..
It's one of my favorite trees and I know a lot of trees. ;)

That music is off the soundtrack for La Double Vie De Veronique, a film that when I saw/heard it I couldn't believe how I lived without it being in my life before. Zbigniew Preisner is the composer and I recommend anything he's done.

My favorite are the first 3. Love the visual confusion between perceiving the various textures which genearally aren't seen at the same time.

the 4th one almost looks like the bird has been hung on the tree like a christmas ornament.

I don't like the last one,it looks a bit like the birds are getting stuck by dark lighting.

The first one reminds me of sitting in the apple tree
on Sinclair Island feeling cozy and hidden... when
a seagull flies close by. It sees you just for a moment
and you feel that wonderful connection.

I love in the last one how light appears to be coming
from the seagulls. :)

and... well... the one of you is just lovely!

I like the connection of the trees and your circulatory system!
What's outside is inside... what's inside is outside!!

mm i know what you mean about the apple tree.. though it was always hummingbirds spotting me!

I like your observation on the last photo, I hadn't thought of it that way..

the circulatory system connection was my intention for the self-portrait, but I think you're one of the few people who would know or notice that. :)

Wow, beautiful, especially the first three. I've been meaning to do some photo merges, but not like these: using the same image, exposure bracketed. Might have to try some like this though. I've also been photographing a lot of trees lately :)

Is that tree in Richmond Park? For some reason, it looks like a Richmond Park kinda tree.

The first three are my favorites too. I included the last two under the cut to see people's reactions to them, sometimes people see things that I don't in my photographs and it's always interesting to get feedback on them here as normally I would discard them.

Merges are fun. I look forward to seeing yours if you decide to experiment. :)

Yes, they are Richmond Park trees. I'm still not used to living around deciduous trees, they make for such a different landscape. :)

PS. I was talking about The Double Life of Veronique just the other day (I have it here on video - really ought to watch it properly though, as previously I watched it over 2 sessions)

I caught The Double Life of Veronique playing at the Renoir theatre near Russell Square last week. Seeing it on the big screen and hearing the music on nice loud speakers was an unforgettable experience. That film is so inspiring.

We ought to rig it up on big screen here - now that we have an LCD projector, a big sheet and a nice stereo, it's fairly easy, although it would be much better on DVD (we have it on VHS). The kids watched the new Harry Potter on there last night - gutted that I missed it, but I'm in a play at the moment, opening night is Wednesday and right now every evening is spent rehearsing. Can't wait until it's over and I get my life back :)

i like the progression. slowly, trees give way to sky... and the self-portrait is gorgeous, of course. very pure.

i think these photos made their way into my dreams last night! you really do have an exceptional talent.

blown away by the model mixed with the tree silhouettes(3rd down). I've always found eyes the most striking feature on a person and i love how the image draws you to looking deep into them. Once again, incredible!

Your LJ inspires the soul in the way that a glass of old vine zinfandel and artisan dark chocolate engages the senses. Thank you for continuing to post in this journal. It may seem like a pointless waste of energy at times, but rest assured, it is much appreciated.

These images are quite lovely.
Trees can be such beautiful things. There used to be one that I regularly cycled past in one of those smart streets of Holland park and one cold winter it enchanted me, when the blackness of its bare branches seemed especially extreme against the brightness of a full moon-lit frosty night. In spring, the beech wood canopies of the New Forest have a magic quality to wander under, with their new leaves unable to contain the brave spring sunshine that dapples green on the bluebells beneath.

And that picture of you is milky languid, with your eyes strong and calling out to all. Slightly Ophelia, but completely alive.
