    Hi Richard,

    I always found these pics full of emotions. They do give a mix feelings, it’s like being in peace and at the same being dizzy.

    Great great job.

    A most dream-like series betwixt the blur of reality and dreams; and the awareness that the border between the two is a thin veil.

    Hi Richard,
    I wanted to get home to view you photographs, I thought that looking at them on my laptop would not do the images justice.
    I really liked this series, the play with focus and shading really evokes a dreamlike state.
    Wonderful stuff.
    Hope you made it home ok and the flight was not too boring.
    I look forward to more of your work.

      Paul, thank you for stopping by and your kind words. I have arrived about four hours ago. I was so tired I missed all food and drinks on the plain. I woken up at touching ground in Amsterdam.

    Nice photos and lovely ideas as usual. Specially the one called “once upon”. Dream Land was another nice one that I really liked the composition and the atmosphere.

    Keep going man!

      Patrick, thank you very much for your encouraging words!
      I see that your prefer those photographs, which are more recognizable. Is it so?

I wonder, I wonder, what you would do if you had the power to dream at night any dream you wanted to dream. And you would of course be able to alter your time sense, and slip seventy-five years of subjective time into eight hours of sleep. You would I suppose start out by fulfilling all your wishes. You could design for yourself what would be the most ecstatic life: love affairs, banquets, dancing girls, wonderful journeys, gardens, and music beyond belief.

And then after a couple of months of this sort of thing at seventy-five years a night, you’d be getting a little taste for something different, and you’d move over to an adventurous dimension, where there were certain dangers involved, and the thrill of dealing with dangers. And you could rescue princesses from dragons, and go on dangerous journeys, and eventually get into contests with enemies. And after you had done that for awhile, you’d think up a new wrinkle, to forget that you were dreaming, and think that is was all for real.
