That's what your imagination is for. When looking at a tree trunk, try to imagine Twinka or BB or MM or your favorite model hiding behind the tree.



That's sound advice, but for a fatal flaw: I do think of them and that's why the 'backgrounds' become, well, backgrounds in search of a foreground.

It's all really very similar to the world of digital: a solution looking for a problem.

Chris,

I loathe ARAT to the point that I rarely look at this thread .... ever.  But you find transcends being just a tree and is a portal into other places.  Thanks for sharing.

Glad to see you like it.
Maybe I should start a series "Reality Seen In Psychotic Mode" or something like that.
Might also just call it "Hieronymus Bosch In Our Daily Life".

Cheers

My puzzlement over "ARAT", what it was and should I stop doing it, has coincided with a little home improvement for me today.  If the attached is ARAT, I will try to make it the last such post.

That's obviously a tree. Why else would it be in this thread?  8)

I love these, Chris! Perhaps the second one should be called "Hieronymus Bush?"

Thanks Rob and Eric for the nice words.
Much appreciated.

I love these, Chris! Perhaps the second one should be called "Hieronymus Bush?"
"Hieronimous Bush" would make a perfect name for a series wish bushes only.
I was fantasizing of a series with all kinds of subjective overlays/interpretations in a HB-ish way though:
trees, cars, buildings, street scenes, flowers - basically a sort of photographic paranoia.  :o

Cheers

Do please show us more of this series as it develops, even if it doesn't all fit in the "trees" category, Chris!

... I loathe ARAT ...

I guess me too, if I knew what it is. Even Google doesn't know (unless, of course, you meant Army Reprogramming Analysis Team).

I may just be less conscious than most people, but I feel Mallorcan Treant needn't rely on darkness so heavily to be scary.

Some nice tones there.

And shapes. And patterns.

Unless your innocence is tongue-in-cheek:

ARAT: another rock, another tree.

Welcome, indeed!

By the way, Branko happens to be my high-school buddy and a good photographer. Hopefully, he will shows us more of his work soon.
