dream by day

Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things that escape those who dream only at night.
Edgar Allan Poe

done for the daily shoot – monochrome shot taken with a lensbaby which creates a dreamlike feel I think. I love my lensbaby. Converted to black and white in lightroom. If you don’t have a lensbaby you can create a similar effect using photoshop.

      thanks lee – I used an actual lensbaby lens on my camera for this one but I have now added a tutorial of how to do this type of effect in photoshop.

    I love this. Mostly for the incredible photo. I like the high contrast black and white.

    Also, though, E.A. Poe is my distant cousin. I was given his complete works when I was 8 years old (and I read them!). You quote him and I’ll be happy. 🙂

    I don’t know if you play any video games, but there is a dream world in this one game called Dragon Age: Origins. They call it the Fade–a place where humans go to dream and mages go to connect with the spirits. This looks like it was taken right out of that environment.
