this is 1 and 8 or a 8 image series.
i have watched you from afar
for many, many years.
now is the time to make my move
and to show who i am
i want to take you in my arms
and never let you go.
you are my all, my everything
and i will make you mine.
After finishing my series i found this poem and i feel it in bodes the nature of the series well. the symbolism is the shadows representing the dark parts of a persons dream and the madden and the light thing being the light parts in those same dreams. with the realization that end the end we all succumb to the dark parts of our dreams at one point or another. to add to the dream like feel of the series i used selective devilment to give a cloud or dream like feel to the images and i used selenium to create a kind of romance between the madden and the phantom.
