|
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.

Some Saint


|
abstract image of a close up of a glass filled with red liquid, in front of a background that is blurry and makes a natural gradient: white at the top, a thick band of emerald green, a thin band of lighter green, an even thinner but darker band of green, and then a white strip again that is faded into.

Psalm for P.

old black and white image that looks like a polaroid of a large campfire. the flames are in a warm glow in the center. behind the fire sits four blurry people, caught in mid-motion in the shadows.

Last Night’s Fire


|
image of a large pinkish wave or spray of water crashing over a dark green rock. the image is full of the water's spray, like a thick haze you can feel.
