There you go with that light whip thing again. Took out part of a tree this time. That’s powerful right there, my man.
@macoman4u1 they said that you can use light, to make something disappear.
Who was “they”? Is that like a commonly known thing in the industry?
@macoman4u1 an article for scientific america. I also had to illustrate a black hole in a table.
Dude, stop amazing me. Just stop.
@macoman4u1 that vortex was a few led keychain lights on fishing line, that i let expand with centrifugal force, as i raised them.
You capture light and spin it to show how much fun it is?! Ok, you’re a most delightful freak.
@macoman4u1 i also have this romantic painterly thing. I lived on the battlefield in Gettysburg, when i started photography. I think that had an influence.
I think living on a battlefield in Gettysburg would make a deep and lasting impression. It did for me on one single day. It was almost as if the blood of the battlefield was crying up from the ground. Weird sensation. I sensed something, and that was ONE day. No telling what else is still crying besides the blood. My psyche got a 2x4 whacked into it that day. Can’t imagine living there with all those impressions being left in you.
@macoman4u1 i also lived in a farm house that left one side of the house as it was, having been a hospital during the battle. Blood all over the walls, cots, old pills. I have seen some strange things there. I lived alone one summer in that house too.
@macoman4u1 @chip Went to Gettysburg as a teenager and it does have an off world vibe. Now that I'm in Floriduh I was a bit surprised by the Koreshan Park Site. It's Florida's version of the Shaker community. Started in 1894 and was one of Edison's first electrified towns. He convinced the community to allow him to install electricity. I've been to his lab site in West Orange, NJ. Has a creepy history, but it feels weird too. 'Course I have an overly active imagination.
@chip @macoman4u1 Cool! I’m from Pennsylvania and have been to the battlefield many times. When a friend of mine went one raw, cold day in October 1989, it was just about empty of tourists, but you had a feeling there were people around you just the same. I never had a feeling of isolation in the modern world like I had that day. The air had a real deep chill to it and we were taking pictures of all the monuments and from the tower that was at the battlefield at the time. It just seemed
@macoman4u1 @SpiceOfOurLife it happened while i sat in silence, reading The Teachings of Don Juan , in fact. I'd feel these people come in the living room , an sit down. Like they were confused and lost, and just wanted to hang out. Then, i'd turn off the lights to go to sleep upstairs, feeling them behind me, and at the top of the stairs. They were harmless, yet some were a bit cranky or frustrated too.
@chip @macoman4u1 my friend I went to Gettysburg in 1989 with grew up in a house like that. It was said to sit on Indian land and a burial ground. They have someone who walks the steps at times an you could hear their feet on the floor of one of the bedrooms upstairs. When you were there you got so used to it that we would yell “Hello!” to them when we heard them!
@macoman4u1 @SpiceOfOurLife it was very comforting and amusing, and thick with feelings. When storms and lightening struck, i have seen 3D silhouettes of a union soldier. My mom saw him too. so real to see a face in a flash of light...of a civil war captain standing 5 ft away...then a silhouette again.
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
