Hello. 9th September and number 251 in the ongoing 365 image mega series.

Taken tonight at home.
I was going to do this the other night for my pic-of-the-day with myself as the subject and I actually finished the image, but before I could save it my computer froze up and I lost it. I was not a happy bunny. It is inspired by the song “The Fear” by The Levellers.
Two images of Autumn. The clone stamp was used to blend one head to the other. Levels adjustment, contrast adjustment and a high pass filter layer at three pixels. Black and white conversion, then added to a texture layer and partially erased. Blended with hard light.

Canon EOS 20D / Canon USM 28mm-105mm lens.

The Fear by The Levellers

Do you wake up every day
In a world that seems crazy
A world you love to hate
Are you scared or do you feel pretty safe
Do you think you have nothing
Or do you think you’ve got it made

You know it feels like you’re going insane
I’ve done everything you told me
To take away the pain
Then you change my medication again
It’s getting harder to tell
Just who or what’s insane

Do your nightmares tear you apart
Do you wake up screaming
Shouting in the dark
The demons keep you awake
Does the clock tick more slowly
With every breath you take

You know it feels like you’re going insane
I’ve done everything you told me
To take away the pain
Then you change my medication again
It’s getting harder to tell
Just who or what’s insane

Does each day seem like the next
You turn on the morning
Coz turning offs the best
Do think that it will never change
Or does mass self delusion
meddle with your brain

You know it feels like you’re going insane
I’ve done everything you told me
To take away the pain
Then you change my medication again
It’s getting harder to tell
Just who or what’s insane

You see I think I know it all
I think I know the way
You’ve given me the power
By making me insane

You know it feels like I’m going insane
Well maybe you love me better a little bit deranged
But it may be a different way
If it keeps on the way it’s going
There’ll be no-one staying sane

I’ve been taking photographs since 1997 and I still love it. After a brief dislike of photomanipulation I now use Photoshop extensively on a majority of my work. People are my favourite subject and I’m always on the look out for new models, so drop me a line if you’re interested! :)
