Echo

rich blue sky with a brighter blue in the center, ringed by darker jewel blue tones. arctic birds fly across the sky, their white bodies punctuating the sky.

Syllable Nutshell


|
image of a well-lit forest of tall pine trees with no off-shoot branches in the background. In the center of the image is a dark pine with two hands clutching it - you see that man stands behind the pine and grips the tree like he's trying to hold on.

Rare Sighting


|
image of a woman standing with her back to the camera, in front of a bicycle. she is visible from the waist up. in front of her is a long river, and the opposite bank is full of buildings for a city. a man on a bike is in the far right distance, blurred out. the woman is lit up by a patch of golden light in an otherwise greenish blue image of dusk.

Echo


|
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.

The Mole


|
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.

The Offices


|
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.
