On the other side of life by gilad On the other side of life by gilad

Woke up this morning
On the other side of life
Where illusion was the truth
And my state of mind was the land

Here, the world is nothing but a small man
But a man is an infinity of worlds


****

Surreal morning view at the Rephaim brook near Jerusalem, Israel. Rephaim means ghosts in Hebrew and somehow I was feeling it that morning. I used the shallow pool's water for reflection. Lens: Canon 15mm F2.8 (fisheye).
If you visit Israel and you are interested in this place, enter your GPS with: Latitude: 215650 , Longitude: 628000 and enjoy.

Wow, I love the clouds. I see a dragon breathing bright flames, and a skull rising from them....
What else can I see within those?

I love this capture and I think the fisheye really enhances the feel which for me is innitially one of sorrow. As if this morning I am in a warped, deep and removed world of inner reflection. The event this particular day holds for me, a funeral for a friend, a catalyst for my thoughts. The mother and child remind me of the new day infront of me and the continuum of life, indeed that I am part of. In this moment of oneness I feel invigorated and infused with love and that every day should be a celebration of life.
