Sharing a Painting

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.

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.

Camp Meeting

a woman in a yellow rainjacket walks away from the camera, a dog by her side. one of her feet is raised in movement. to her left is thick bramble and wheat and a large tree, illuminated by a hazy glow of sun. it looks like it just rained, the atmosphere is gauzy.
