Dreams of the sea, dreams of the shore and of walking in the sand with bare feet! Or is it just a pattern of dirt, dried up slosh at the side of a busy street in Vienna?

It’s a difference, for sure, but maybe it does not count in an image. Images are illusions, fantasies, dreams, framed and taken out of context. It feels different when you’re there, but when you dream about it, you have a hard time telling one apart from the other. And besides, maybe you are like me and even lack all motivation to do so 😀

The Song of the Day is “Shoreline” by Anna Ternheim. Hear it on YouTube.

When taking images I often like to look up, but on occasion I like to look down as well.

Here we have an image of an Underground lift floor, taken as I arrived in Vienna, and another one of dirt below a tree, peculiarly arranged by the rain, taken as I was on my way back to Villach.

Both images have had their share of processing, for instance did I have to strongly enhance contrasts in the reflection, and the dirt looked much better with some vignetting.

The Song of the Day is “Looking Down” from the Flying Pickets album “Blue Money”. Hear it on YouTube.
