The Doors of Perception - II

View On Black

A few weeks ago I posted The Doors of Perception. I thought it was a good result overall but I wasn't entirely satisfied with it.


This is a shot from another angle and a bit darker. I wanted to emphasize the rays of light breaking through the pilings to better visualize the famous quote from Aldous Huxley:


''If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things through narrow chinks of his cavern."

- Aldous Huxley - The Doors of Perception
