Luca and Gida, Play 08, originally uploaded by Bgrax
No, this is not a two-headed dog, but it certainly looks like one at first glance. What a great optical illusion! More than that, it just begs for a story. This is the comment I left:
I love this! To me, the lighting looks like the soft glow of TV and makes me see a story. Luca and Gida were playing tug, but something on the TV caught their attention. They paused, mid-tug, and their jaws dropped in amazement.
What did they see?
Feel free to chime in below in the comments. 🙂
I really enjoy Bgrax’s photos and in seeing them wish I’d learned how to shoot on a film camera first. A friend loaned me a Yashica 35mm camera and a bunch of lenses while I was in high school, and that’s what really got me hooked. My great uncle and aunt bought me a Minolta X-370 as a high school graduation gift. Finally, in about 1997, Howie and I bought a Canon Rebel G.
Still, though I have always had a good eye, I never had the technical expertise to get the images out of the camera that I saw in my head. Not only that, I never knew why some of my shots came out well and why others were duds.
I have no formal training. It wasn’t until I started shooting digital and having that instant feedback that I learned how, for instance, the use of aperture can take an okay shot and make it sing.
So, when I see someone who has mastered film like this, it makes me feel both wowed and wistful.
