Coming into the Kingdom


|
a black and white image of an open field except for a short tree with a tuft of leaves at the top in the front right corner of the image, and a hazy shape of a tree in the far background in the left quadrant. two figures walk away from the camera in a thick fog, you can only see their shapes.

Poetic Creed


|
image of a road covered in melting snow, with a giant puddle reflecting the sky. one of the puddles, closest to the camera, is dark blue, the other puddle, further away, is red and orange and glistening with a lone car's headlights. the car, road, and trees are black from the dawn. the top of the sky is a pale blue and pink shell color, the bottom thick bands of red and gold for the sunrise.

an open window casts blue sunlight upon a white bed, behind it the wooden paneling is split in two colors by the light. a lamp with a green shade hangs over the middle of the bed. on top of the bedframe is a small window that reflects the mirror with the white curtains and the turquoise blue shadow-lit light spilling in.

upward shot of the top of a large cathedral with two towers flanking the center structure, both with a turret at the very top (a steeple). the image is overlaid with light leaks of purple and red, and while the cathedral is lit by the sun, the shadows are green. it looks like the film was ruined, overexposed, or opened up, so the image is saturated with watercolor-ish colors.

a profile that is almost back of the head of a man driving. He has curly hair and in the front of the image, you can see the blurry top of his hand on the steering wheel. Sun comes in from through the windshield and casts a glow on his face. The whole image is washed in blue and green tones like it's underwater.
