I like how this goes from a near to static foreground to motion in the background and the visible shadows are amazing in creating again a forward motion. Great capture.

Many thanks, I'm glad you like it. I was going for a shifting aesthetic so I am glad it translates.

Love this, love the way how the structure is. With some imagination you can make a story out of the photo and even see different objects.
Great shot.

Nah, not again; these are all from the same session. I may have another sub-series in the near future, though! Thanks again for the comments, it's appreciated.

As ~Coldwave-Enigma said, there's indeed an otherworldly feeling to this.


Great series along with Fluxus. I'd place them on my wall as a diptych!!! :D

Are you planning on more of these? :)

arctoa Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2013  Student Photographer
Yes indeed; I'm uploading another one shortly, but that'll be the probable end of this introductory trilogy. As a concept, though, it's something I'll definitely be experimenting with further, and I think I have an appropriate series of unprocessed imagery to work upon.

Well, I can't speak for others.. but I know how that goes for me. Whenever I try to make follow up shots for a serie I end up with totally different processings.

Agreed; the creative process is a living, evolving thing: it's what makes it creative.

True. Although sometimes I feel it could all be a little more consistent

As a person of order, I can certainly relate to that sentiment.

A keen insight! The otherwordly aspect hadn't previously occurred to me, which is unusual as I'm normally all over any sort of space imagery.

My eyes were drawn instantly to the symbology present, but as I look further and see the separation between elements, my mind wandered to the last photos of Mars, also the symbols had me thinking about the old photos of the Moon, there were crosses all over them, I think they were used as scale finders/range finders or something, this is where the otherwordly aspect started to kick in, I hope to see more of this :)

It's a concept that I've been thinking about for a while: this is just early experimentation, but I'm quite content with how it has coalesced.
