The Maid's Dream

(Press 'L' to see it on black)

 

Let's face it, who never dreamed about escaping from their workplace and lazying somewhere in the sun instead? ;-)

 

I tried to imagine the thoughts of a maid, tired of all the cleaning, flying towards better horizons.

 

All the photos and processing are mine as usual:

- The buildings are located in "La Defense", the business district next to Paris

- The flying machine is real: it was constructed directly in my home-studio, although I had to shoot the 2 wings separately due to lack of brooms. Of course it does not really fly ;-) It was attached to a beam to hold it in the air.

- My wife kindly posed (again!), the feet on a chair to hold them in the air

- The fire was shot during a barbecue evening (I purposely made some big flames using lots of small branches)

 

Now I have to clean the house!
