Mappamundi Ouroboros


|
far away shot of a city and freeway in twilight. everything in the image is bathed in a deep purple, violet twilight. on the freeway, the headlights of the car make little pinpricks of light. the sky hanging above the earth is dark purple nearest the ground and the trees, and then there is a burst of yellow and deep pink clouds under a pale sky the color of eggshells, just as a smooth, and dimming steadily.

Hirudo Medicinalis

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.

After Love


|
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.

Bewilder

two pink roses, one in the front that is blurry, one in the foreground that is in focus, pop their heads out of thick green leaves and shoots that sprout into a milky sky and foreground of trees.
