We A l l Wish To Be .Truly. Free by GrotesqueDarling13 We A l l Wish To Be .Truly. Free by GrotesqueDarling13
FULL VIEW PLEASE!
It's a must!

Photo: Me.
Minor Post. Pros: Me.
Taken: Aug. 27th 2012.

A single water droplet on a peacock
feather with a single dandelion fuzz on it.
And with a simple blue rippled holographic
image in the background :nod: Bokeh and
colors are natural as always!!

My water droplet shots aren't just
about the drop, I care about the whole
photo, every inch matters to me. Colors,
bokeh, different arrangements, ideas, etc.
I try to create a scene each time, it's calming
but a happy challenge that I enjoy to explore.

I really hope you all dig this!!

I love Dandelion's, lol :D Thank you so very much!!
I actually put it there, it only did it once and
wouldn't do it again. So it's something I will
have to practice more with next summer :nod: :thanks:

I feel that the texture in this piece is absolutely astounding. Also, in my interpretation, the title fits the image perfectly, although I'm thinking more along the lines of "We all wish/want to be free, but we're not", as the dandelion fuzz is light and fluffy, but the water is not. I feel that even though water has a lot of freedom, being able to mould into any shape, flow down anywhere it wants, it's not truly free because it can only travel downwards, (unless it's evaporated, but in that case, it would be gas, no? and only downwards, unlike the dandelion fuzz which can ride the wind and travel upwards as well. However, as free as the dandelion fuzz is, when it grows into a plant, it no longer is? Or it's only as free as it is when there IS wind? Or that you can't mould it...? Or something XD

Anyhow, I feel that this is a somewhat philosophical shot which makes one ponder about the truth of being free <3 I love it!

It's just one of my normal set up's
that I added the little piece after.
I only one shot, I need to practice
with it more, it's a toughy for sure.
And tweezers would make things easier,
I need to up date my macro equipment :hug: :thanks:
