    Illo Friday: Communicate

    "A woman can say more in a sigh
    than a man can say in a sermon"

    - Arnold Haultain

    "The Wrrrath of HellcatAtomicVelvetSigh"
    MS Paint
    (orig. 650 x 770)

    this 15-minute collage is a result of a mixture of insomnia, skipping lunch and dinner, listening to Ride's songs "Dreams Burn Down", "Decay" and "Paralysed" within the dark confines of a room with no internet connection and uncharged mobile phone at the dead time of unwaking in surreal dreams..

    and they said im a strange guerrrrrl.. hey now, am i?

    note: loom over the domain of hellcats to unearth the poetry within the image

    Lens Day challenge: Triptych

    "the morality of art consists in the perfect use
    of an imperfect medium.
    " - Oscar Wilde

    left hand   |   hold my hand, i shall follow   |   right hand

    A triptych is a work of art which is divided into three sections which are collected together. The central panel is the most important one, and this is flanked on either side by two lesser but related images. The whole is intended to be greater than the sum of the parts.

    This is my entry for this week's Lens Day Challenge.

    Just to share, i took these shots using the only available light in my room, one mid-afternoon.. the sunlight reflected by a mirror and my mobile phone. and with the help of my red curtains, navy blue ceiling and walls, these features seemed to unintentionally add to the effect.

    Illo Friday: Gravity

    what does one need to shoot a perfect picture? the proper balance of gravity, stillness and light.

    so, what is the result of improper balance of gravity, stillness and light? a classic example of camera painting..

    And what does one need to not be kicked-out of the (seven) circles of Hellcat? The improper balance of rationality, creativity, TIME and the right sharpness of one's fangs!

    Lens Day Challenge: Green

    Life is the flower for which love is the honey.
    - Victor Hugo

    This is to pay tribute to this day of the badly heart broken, dreamers and lovers alike..

    note: photo taken behind a green window.. which produced this effect.

    Lens Day: Light

    Love of mine some day you will die
    But I'll be close behind
    I'll follow you into the dark

    No blinding light or tunnels to gates of white
    Just our hands clasped so tight
    Waiting for the hint of a spark
    If heaven and hell decide
    That they both are satisfied
    Illuminate the no's on their vacancy signs

    If there's no one beside you
    When your soul embarks
    Then I'll follow you into the dark...

    note: text above is an excerpt from I'll Follow You into the Dark by Death Cab For Cutie. To listen to the song, click the upper left icon on their site.

    been listening to this on repeat mode.. sorry, i just feel mushy today..
    bite me, if you dare };-}

    Illo Friday: Sprout

    She shot him down

    she wakes up with the sun beaming to her eye
    a heat cluttered stuck to her brain
    spinning her head to unmemory
    brink of blindness unsustained

    digging back from her yesterday
    forcing to remember what words were said
    still nothing - as far as she can see
    from the ten thousand scenes that twisted

    a sudden spring of image clicked to her
    from going back and forth and rewind
    a shadow that made her laugh but not smile
    is this the one?

    she didn’t care where he’s been
    and don’t care what he plans to do
    a fool’s numbness sprouted and lingered
    as they both let the day pass too

    she waited for that moment that never came
    and all her patience came burning
    so time has sent the signal to halt
    and she knows he always had it coming..

    note: Oh, was i listening too much to Stone Roses or not? lol..
    a poem to pay tribute to Feb 2nd.. and the camera painting entry for illo friday..
