The gray area
Between black and white is I
A new light is born
Light that is moving
Soul in Imagination
The stars dying and born

Visual Haiku series

FEATURED in ADAWG February, 2011

My focus as a photographer and digital artist ranges from traditional photography to PhotoArt compilation and the less explored world of abstract design created with natural elements such as smoke, oil and water.

    Light that is moving.
    Soul in Imagination
    The stars dying and born.
    Rosa (Impresionante!..te alzas poderoso, y se perfila la luz en tu cuerpo..imagen de la luna esperando.Abrazotes)

  • You have captured the essence of this work in your beautiful poetry Rosa.
    Especially the idea of re-birth. I considered the word Renascence when trying to decide on a title, but it didn’t include the idea of creating light and imagination.

    Mil gracias Rosa, te mando un abrazote!

    Wonderful work, Richard! This picture has a lot in it. It must have been made up by at least three images, I think. I see a tree growing inside you(?). Lina’s comment made me realize you can see the person facing either towards the sun or the other way. I’m seeing it as someone looking towards the light, leaving the night and the darkness behind.

  • Yes, I love your interpretation!

    I’m glad you brought up the idea of 3 which is a key factor in Haiku. There are 3 levels, but I actually used 6 or 7 photographs to create the image. I had to shoot the moon and the stars separately and of course those stormy clouds. There is a tree growing inside me as you noticed, and there’s a block wall in the background (Probably only visible in large view).

    Thank you as always for your attention and wonderful comments Eivor :-)

    Yes, now I see the block wall, which I missed first. I have never tried to work on composites yet, besides for just adding text to images. Looks fun!

    Very cool creation, Richard! Very well put together – I particularly like that purple light shining on that cloud (lower right).

  • Thanks as always Krys for your great comments. That purple light was a cool lens flare that I captured one day when I was out just trying to get lens flare. I got some great shapes and colors. The hard part is separating them from the backgrounds, oh and of course the sun in your eyes while you’re making the flares :-)

    fantastic image which works perfectly with your haiku..I love the visual it leaves me with of you being the light with in the grey area. Very cleverly done. :)

  • Thank you so much for these wonderful comments Rhonda. You are a new light on the leading edge of creation :-)
