Somewhere in between by phantastes Somewhere in between by phantastes
I see 'dreams' as floating islands, somewhere in between reality and heaven. Its just a place to soften the impact of life. It could be a place, or it could be a person.
It is created out of spontaneity whenever inspiration comes. It calls me out of myself. Though it is imperfect, it holds everything in tension between stark reality and ideals of Love.
I would actually place it just a shade below the grand idea of Love but it is enough for me.
It is still indescribable, it still inspires strong emotions; it is larger than words, whether spoken or written, that try to contain it. In other words, it cannot be defined.
I could move my dream a few notches closer to ground zero or I could pull it all the way until it vanishes into heaven.
My 'dreams' is a place I'd rather be than heaven itself.

Makes me dream. Makes me think of a little girl that feels sorry for the trees and the flowers and wanting to make them *better*
Great work!

Thank you so much for adding your work to Digital Delicacies! :heart:

Haha thanks so much! I'm actually thinking about a dream from the movie 'Inception' but your version is also good. We all live in a dream, as in virtual reality, sometimes....I guess ;)

We do and I know.. and ain't it wonderful that the possibilities in here sometimes are even better than the dreams?

Many thanks, Coral! :hug: :sun: I want to achieve some 'bokehness' (in photographers' language lolz) in this one, and I'm glad I had :nod:

cemac Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2009
You are teaching me English Desmond, I had to look this one up.:laughing: I gather that the "bokeh" would create depth by selective blurring, which I believe you achieved.....so, congratulations are in order. :heart:

:iconphantastes:
phantastes Featured By Owner Nov 26, 2009
Haha, thanks! I just knew that the word was borrowed from the Japanese by Western photographers. Bokehness helps to create some form of optical illusion so as to be able to focus on the subject :D

I didn't see the optical illusion information on Wikepedia but found it elsewhere. Interesting info Desmond :heart:
