Dmitri Gheorgheni - Not Banned in China

FWR's comment:

Ok Sasha, you have me! Is it some bizarre Arizona landscape or a close up of a choc chip cookie?

Monochrome is like that; take our everyday colour perceptions of vision away and we are left with tones, take our sense of scale away and sugar lumps become Stonehenge, and canyons mere cracks in a biscuit. Galaxies like grains of sand indeed.

Very intriguing image.

bobstafford says:

The mountain is a very unusual photo, it looks like a statue of an ancient god.
This shot has lots of drama and is a unique imposing image.
There is texture in his photograph you can almost feel, it also stimulates the imagination, a very memorable image.

Just checking who Brett Weston is. I get it! Yes! How interesting!

I'm about to find the words ... the words... the rocks, the shadows, the sparklesand or maybe not sand, could be tiny rocks or huge rocks, could be a place of no people because no footprints or it could in fact be a tiny world inside a glass dome, a snowglobe world, a sparklesand world

Perhaps it is from that no word world, definitely definitely the chord of F minor is involved.

A desolate landscape indeed, if you are involuntarily miniaturized while attempting to eat your cookie. Instead of letting the crisp and chewy bits melt in your mouth, you are instead filled with fear that you will break an ankle jumping from the lip of one crack to the other side. And what if you land on a sticky chocolate chip, and can't get free again? Sure, yell for help, but you're too miniaturized to be heard.....smiley - evilgrin

Thanks everyone!

It's not a choc chip cookie, but it is closer to that than Arizona smiley - laugh It was an artistically lit tray of sand, with some large pieces of gravel in it smiley - ok A tiny world that I created to bring a little piece of the desert into my room for photographic purposes smiley - ok

F-minor is the perfect sound for the landscape - sparkling but desolate indeed.

Well, my first thought was that it was the forehead of a dragon or a sand golem, but now I know better.

Do sand golems live in the Golem Heights?

They could be useful as impartial guardians then...

Is "impartial guardians" an oxymoron? smiley - bigeyes

It just means you need at least two standing back to back, in order to face both parties.

I did. Just make sure to pick one that is not political.

Drat! We may have to vote for who removes the punch bowl after it's empty.
