i absolutely love the second one, Richard. That is uncanny valley’s deepest part.
Really glad you like it, Peter. Ha, ha, yes!
Thanks very much, Dina!
Both shots are brilliant, but what’s the story on the mannequin? Was she placed outside and it was shot after rain? Did you spray her with water?
Thanks very much, Cardinal. Yes, she was outside and it had just that minute stopped raining. I like the drop of rain on her lip.
Love these and see that you are a fellow Joihn Cale fan.:)
Glad to hear it, Daniel – thanks very much. Yes, I’m a big fan. Today has been a Paris 1919 and Wrong Way Up day.
Im with you there all the way.
Wow Richard. These go together so very well. Another short film. Timeless & beautiful.
Thanks so much, Steven. Really glad you like them and the compliment is much appreciated.
Fascinating and storytelling pictures, Richard.
Thanks so much, Anette.
Really enjoying this interest in reflective, painted, obscure figured spaces you’ve been exploring.
…but that mannequin! Wow. Fantastic tone, great job capturing the intricacies of rain drops.
I’m really glad you like them, Billimarie. Thanks so much – it had just stopped raining and I took a detour down a lane I don’t know and chanced on the mannequin. I’m going to do it more often.
Well, Richard, both are fantastic, but the first one is awesome. Great ones!!!!
Thanks so much, Santi! Much appreciated!
Fabulous Richard, I like them both very much. The first shot has a lovely misty, drippy quality to it. Kudos.
Thanks so much, Wilma. Really glad you like them.
The mannequin is stunning! A really great find, Richard! 😀
Thanks very much, Richard!
The top image works well with your rapidly expanding genre. Keep going…
Yes, I intend to – thinking of ways to expand it further – thanks, John.
Especially like the layers of the fist image…
Glad you like it, Sally. Thanks very much.
That second image, so unexpected and yet, not. Brilliant!
Thanks so much, Elena!
In the first one, I really like how the fellow is steping out of that scallop shape, and how the drips continue the upward pull of my eyes. I think the drips also contribute to the sense of movement begun in the fellow’s legs.
And you’re up on ‘strata of the self’ again. 🙂
Thanks very much, Ashley – I love being on Strata! Really glad you like the first shot too.
I feel a fondness for those and their work who were there at the beginning, and that includes you and your work. 🙂
You encouraged me and I really appreciate that.
Oh, and the droplets on the mannequin’s face are really quite beautiful.
Thanks very much, Ashley. That was a happy discovery on a not very promising day.
Very tender, expecially the second..the only real thing the rain..it says a lot in a minimal way..love it.
Thanks so much, Cath. I’m really glad you like it. Both shots were taken in this unremitting grey we’re experiencing – I actually find it quite comforting, ha, ha.
I know exactly what you mean, I find grey days really inspiring for photographs often, something comes out in them that doesn’t appear in other days I think!
Both intriguing in different ways– and captivating.
Thanks very much, Ellen!
Great shots on their own, together, wow! Curtains drawn, walking away, tears . . . wonderful work!
Thanks so much, Patti! Love your description!
As memories pile up to reflect our loneliness.
Very nice interpretation – thanks very much, Marcelo.
This series is sooo good!
It feels like it is slowly revealing itself and i understand a little more every time. Maybe.
The ‘veiled’ mystery and the ‘raw’ in combination – what an exhibition this will make! : )
🙂 Thanks so much, Karen – you write such lovely things. I’ve been having fun imagining some of them in a room together.
