Our future world beneath the bubble when the Earth’s air no longer has enough oxygen for us to breathe.

Inhale while you can, who knows how long we’ve got left

The streetscape of Little Lonsdale Street reflected in the plastic elevated walkway from Melbourne Central.

Single capture; no photoshop; no additions. Polarising filter, contrast adjustment and image inverted.

To reveal art and conceal the artist,

    Clever indeed ;) Great perspective!

  • Thank you Di, this came from experimenting with the polarizing filter that I got for Christmas. It’s bit of a manipulation but, I like the otherworldliness of it.

    Wonder why I like this, bent out of shape as it is, more than a straight street scape? The buildings on the left seem to be craning their necks to get a better look at you!

  • Evelyn, if you go on leaving imaginative comments like this, I will just have to run around behind you and lock you in my gallery. I love it when people share their unique view, thank you so much.

    Oh, my gosh, this is so powerful! It’s like you’ve captured the essence of what we’re doing to this planet: making it gasp for air, list like a foundering ship. WOW!!!!

    (Sorry about the mixed metaphors. Just woke up)

  • Hi Robin, I can get carried away with illusion at times, but I did see the “bubble” straight up. Thank you for your enthusiastic comment.

    splendid result R!

  • Thanks Georgie, I must get around to posting images that show what a circuar polarizing filter can do. It was an eye opener to me.

    I saw this episode on the Simpsons lol. Seriously have you been into 50 Lonsdale street, there are stacks of artifacts dug up from Little Lon, a veritable chronicle of common life in Melbourne in the 1800s.

  • Thanks Gwynne, I had heard about that, but have never seen them. A must do on the next trip to the City.
