Monochrome Madness # 2-5 ( and fairies)

The way to Monochrome Madness!! Do check out Leanne Cole’s wonderful gallery of submissions
Here I played with an older photo I like and had some fun with fairies

“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.  Edgar Allan Poe,

an evening amongst the seaside daisies
 don’t be afraid of the dark

I wanted to include a toned version as well as a painterly effect – and inspiration from Ridley Scott’s beautiful film, Legend

A forest child who knows The Gump
How can you be a forest child and not know The Gump?
the gump
My Gump
A fairy's fierce and free
A fairy’s heart is fierce and free.     She knows that
over the hill there is
A field where earth meets heaven

    “Over the hill there is a field where earth meets heaven.” –I love this line.
    The photos, the fairies, the tone, the hill–that road to the place where earth meets heaven. Much appreciated.

    1. Your comments mean so much Peter!! Rumi says ” Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing
      and rightdoing there is a field.
      I’ll meet you there.
      When the soul lies down in that grass
      the world is too full to talk about.”

    I had a wonderful time in your Fairyland,enchanted by the beauty of your photos and thrilled by Poe’s quote.Great the source of your inspiration,I am not familiar with the film,but I enjoyed the captions of your photo series,which narrated your own story… I particularly liked the magical,dazzling light on the first photo and its sepia treatment version.Hope you’re enjoying your breather Cybele Dear 🙂
