Drift away

If you have the time, check out how "Drift Away" was made - its not something quick and simple- in fact it's pretty amazing what goes into just one photo!

Brilliant - I love these - very clever. 

What do you think?


  1. Crazy but very clever! Some of them kind of scary, but I liked them anyway =)

    1. They are the sort of photo you need to look at careful to work out what is going on - very clever.

  2. I love these! Quirky, fun & very clever! :)

    1. I thought you might - some people are just so clever:))

  3. These are very clever!! And creative. Imagine how much time went into making them look like that!

    1. They are so clever and when you look at how he creates them, its pretty amazing. To have these ideas in your head then create them is talent!!

  4. How does he think those things up? A very active imagination, that's for sure! :-) Some are quite interesting! The metal ladder on the power lines is too much, though. I can't stomach that one. I might say it was shocking. ;-) And, the "Vertical Turn" looks much like something out of a bad dream I would have. Ack!

    1. I think it is called "thinking outside the square", some people have the most creative minds. I liked the girl sewing winter!

  5. I agree with you, Brilliant! I can't wait to show my kids and see if they "get it" (the titles). Thank you for your very kind comments on my blog. They are treasures to me.

    1. :))))) I think the children will find these very interesting.

  6. Dear friend, I loved the one with the lady hanging the cloths on the power line LOL
    I am posting your post for my Monday Post!!
    I hope you like it and are blessed by it!
