Lost Giraffe on the Highway

This is a composite image made from photos I took in different places (the background is an highway in Portugal, the animal is a giraffe I captured in Kenya). I also added 2 different textures (wood and wall) and enhanced the overall light effects and colors. This picture is part of my series titled "Wild Animals Downtown". I wanted to generate a surreal atmosphere with a clean and unexpected composition (Every graphic element you see in my Flickr gallery comes from my own stock/production)

Daydreaming Is Often Bad

 

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

 

Daydreaming is often bad

Getting you nowhere at time

Living with once that you had

When it was early and prime

 

With every move and sensation

Giving you much to think

Love in its much tarnation

Into each catch like a blink

 

Riding on clouds to the far

Into the beguiled of their dark

Knowing sometimes what you are

Before on journeys you embark

 

When there's time just to know

What it is that you give me?

In every up and air blow

When we on dreams ride free

 

And if we are lost by a heart

In darker moments than some

Knowing when again then to start

To bring back where good is from

 

When we dream much of it

It isn't going to hurt us so much

We shall have time then to quit

Before it ever becomes to be such
