Alice in Wonderland/Pursuit



...burning with curiosity, she ran across the field after it, and was just in time to see it pop down a large rabbit hole under the hedge.

Liberties have been taken, visually speaking.

Yesterday I was in San Francisco and walked by the Mark Hopkins, which appeared in Vertigo - just in front of the driveway is an excellent place for pavement level photography.

Wonderful work again. Lovely compositions.

And she ran, and ran, and ran.

I really cracked up when I saw the Hatter
at the end of that tiny crack beyond that wooden
gadgerism.

And dropping down "the hole".

wonderful, wonderland. Don't answer this if you don't want to, but i was wondering are these photos manipulated, or do you crawl arond in the garden actually putting Alice and co. in their places?

These are a little like the famous fake fairies that had Conan Doyle fooled. Full of atmosphere.

Nemo said...

You could do hundreds of these without my losing interest. So many doorways to disappear through, hare-footed or otherwise...

Nemo said...

Adam, don't believe the skeptics. Those faeries were real!

Love your cut outs and poses. Love the Mark. We were in the city about 4 1/2 yrs ago and had a wonderful time. I would live there if it were affordable. Great place to visit!

Very cool. I'm reminded of imaginary cardboard cities and flying objects from my childhood. Hope you'll do something on the Walrus and the Carpenter as well.

ArtSparker said...

Paula -

The answer is both. These are all taken of in-place figures, however some are manipulated afterwards more than others - with the ones that turn out well despite my being an amateur, I just remove the elements that are supporting the figure.
