I do not sleep well or easily. But when sleep finally comes, it brings the most intense and detailed dreams. It has been this way since I was a very small child. I think that perhaps the dreams are a gift to make up for the insomnia and sleep paralysis. Regardless, dreaming is one of my favorite things and I often wish I could spend more time there. Because for me, it really is a tangible "There." I could easily map out my dreams:
Here is the city of twisted elevators.
Here is gymnasium with the ocean inside it.
Here is stacked interstate with the donut shop in the park that has the really good citrus drink.
Here is an old field with small airplanes that hides a shortcut to the tall and narrow mountains.
And so forth.
The images I chose for this week's Photostream could all have come out of a dream. They all have that acute feeling of being both very immediately real and just slightly impossible that often permeates my dreams.
I hope you all enjoy them.
Every week the FSC features an article with a Curated Photostream that is open to all. You may only submit one (1) photo and it *must* be a jpeg file and no larger than 20 MB. Please title the file "Title_Camera_Film_YourName.jpg" so that we may properly credit you if your photo is selected. Remember to check our Submit page to see all currently open photostreams.
The September 10 Photostream will be curated by Marc Nagainis. From Marc: Summer is over, the kids are back in school. Show me images of things or people you miss. Show me what's missing. Submit your image here.
The September 13 Photostream will be curated by Keith Mendenhall. From Keith: This month’s theme is Places. Places. Ideally places to which you traveled over the last few months, recent would be best, I think. Or maybe not. Maybe something from childhood would be amazing and wonderful. So, as you wish, if it’s a place, please consider submitting it. All instant film formats are accepted. You may submit your image here.
My next curation is October 1 and there is no theme. You may submit your image here.
