Great textures Steve. I like it!
Interesting photo.The texture of the tree(i assume it's a tree)is great.
The textures are great it would work in a film like Alice In Wonderland or Harry Potter. Cool!
Steve, very nice! Tree bark on a tree trunk? I love the potential of composites. I have looked through your albums and I like them. In my own very humble opinion, and my own vision, would have liked to see the green man as older, bearded and long hair that flows in to the bark of the tree. I mean no offense. Your picture seems to have a darker aspect?
Thank you for your comments. A bit of a difficult one this I am not sure it hits the mark now I look at it in the cold light of day
No David Lynch is weird. Your analysis sound more like a Stanley Spencer scenario. The paperboy is Spencer in voyeuristic delight. The Audi symbolises his own perception of his fragile manhood and wirevixen is the object of his suburban fantasy. The potting of Geraniums is the symbolic act of intercourse...made more poignant by the fact she is planting them upside down. So Spencer presents a truth rather than plain weirdI think it's the paperboy peering through the frosted glass of 21 Acacia Avenue. The Audi is just behind him, and Wirevixen is potting some geraniums, while Steve, depressed by the bourgeois futility of it all, switches into David Lynch mode.
Actually it has nowt to do with any of that. The image represents the Green Man receding from folk consciousness into material form. Our loss of the human psyche that connects us with nature through ancient lore. The beginning of the end?
Never touch booze (anymore) but if I did it would be absinthe Now that you lot have become nationalised and SNP will be making the policies you could start up the Auld Alliance again and get your absinthe duty free. I believe the cries of "no Bishops" was to be heard ringing around the halls of parliment again. You will want your rock back at this rate. Trouble is we sold it on e-bay (Camerons cuts) It is now part of the worksurface of Gerald and Virginias suburban kitchen refitEither that, or he's been at the absinthe again.
The irish are addicted to anything that gives you a headache the following morning. It makes me laugh when I see the Irish Tourist board advert with a French lass sipping Guiness out of what appears to be a wine glass. It is traditional to appreciate Guiness from a bucket - in quantities that you can wash a bus with.Definitely the green fairy! Don't you know that we O'Neills are all addicted to absinthe?
Marie, the conventional image of the green man is exactly as you say but I wanted to explore an alternative side that is indeed dark - see responses above. I need to think more about this image. I have the concept in my head but I cant quite get it onto the screen.would have liked to see the green man as older, bearded and long hair that flows in to the bark of the tree. I mean no offense. Your picture seems to have a darker aspect?
Nice! But it looks like the green boy. You're inspiring me to take a pic of the one I have on my porch.
We're now looking at a permanent price freeze on Canon 24-70 L f2.8's.
It appears they have already invaded Invaded is a the wrong word I think "Policed for their own protection" is the accepted phrase along with the caveat "oil - what oil?"And then we've got to hand out all the Mel Gibson look-a-like paint and issue compulsory purchase orders on all the tartan travelling rugs in order to turn them into uniforms for the hostesses who will greet all visitors at Edinburgh Airport.
