Thanks to those who left comments on my last few uploads. I am sorry that I haven't been around much. Time has been escaping me lately.
This is an image that I shot with one idea in mind and then it "morphed" into a slightly different concept once I started editing it in Photoshop. It is a rather personal image for me, but I have decided that I won't explain the meaning behind it so that the viewer can interpret it as they wish.
And for the record, the image was much more difficult to shoot than I initially thought it would be. I tested out fitting the bottom half of my body under my bed before setting up my camera. I thought that there was enough room for me to fit under the bed. Well, err....then I set up my camera and when I attempted to scoot the upper half of my body under the bed, it didn't fit. I ended up having to lift the bed frame off the floor in order to scoot under the bed, and then I was feeling very claustrophobic and it was difficult to move. Then I realized that I hadn't even thought about how difficult it was going to be to fire the tiny wireless camera remote with those ridiculous large green rubber gloves on. Because of the awkwardness of the gloves, I kept dropping the camera remote. It was not an easy task to lay on my back in the confined space and locate the small black remote that was camouflaged in the zebra rug. I have to admit that I was glad when the shoot was over with. I don't think that I will attempt to shoot from under my bed again.
I have included a couple of "behind the scenes" shots, purely for entertainment purposes.
