Fantascape #13 : Stranger in the Night

Who is that stranger sitting on the hill tonight, in front of my window?

(the one in the house with the little tower…)

    Better Not To Know

    Somewhere a stranger sits on
    a hillside. Somehow a light
    shines deep in the night.

    The man with the purple face
    has three fingers on his hand.
    He looks upward, face frozen.

    The buzzards have gathered.
    Is he dead or alive? A woman
    raises her arms, cries out.

    Is she sharing his pain? Sometimes
    it is better not to know. Another
    man sits—in prayer, perhaps.

    Hello Miki,

    a fascinating night scene, looking a bit menacing to me.
    Wishing you a good Saturday,

    The theme is sorrowful, BUT the Stranger in the Night awakens our longings – serves us the reminder of the light and thus awakens the dreams inside the viewer. Thus what was the flat surface of the picture becomes the spaceless wonderland – life without the strangers – the sense of being in a hug of love.
    The painters paint the canvases, but you do much more – talk with the ageless wisdome and and free your vievers from the pasive viewing by involving into the hearty talk.

    Oh Miki, they just keep getting better and better. And the comments generate so much introspection as well. We each see ourselves in your -scapes and go on journeys with our own spirits. I keep seeing Miki and Kev as well, each muse to the other.

    A stranger indeed, but not a person. My imagination holds him/her closer to the flat top headed “ET” In spielberg’s fammous movie. It has an amorphous body that ould be anything. The shadows make our imagination run wild. Also, the dark alley with branching streets looks like a woman clamoring to the figure for something.

    toujours ces couleurs qui me font rêver.
    Merci pour tes passages fréquents sur mes images, et tes commentaires sur Thomas…
    Bonne soirée

  8. Miki Says:

    The dark alley was meant as a tree as a figure… but I can see the alley now..and ET too!

    Thank you. I really find that you are a great photographer of a great model.

    The effect is very “effective”. I wa snot sure if you had made the tree purposedly look like an alley or the alley was made to look like a tree. I like the many suugestive images and colors.

    Coucou Mehdi! Quel plaisir de lire un commentaire en français sur mon blog, je n’en ai pas beaucoup! Oui, Pomme, bien sur, je connais… une grande amie… une grande dame…
    Merci pour tes gentils compliments, et reviens ici, quand tu as le temps ou l’occasion. Mais moi aussi je vais aller te voir “chez toi”. Bonne journée!
