Strange Garden: black-and-white

Strange Garden: Apple Tree

Strange Garden:Portrait of a tree

"A silhouette is a view of an object or scene consisting of the outline and a featureless interior, with the silhouetted object usually being black. The term was initially applied in the 18th century to portraits or other pictorial representations cut from thin black card.

The term has been extended to describe the sight or image of a person, object or scene that is backlit, and appears dark against a lighter background.

Silhouette images may be created in any artistic media, but the tradition of cutting portraits from black card has continued into the 21st century."

Shadows on the wall...

More shadows from the wall this morning. It has changed slightly with the trees changing outside, loosing leaves, letting more light in.

Mari Ishikawa

Light of full Moon : Sun = 1:400000
Under the moon light there are grey worlds. It is mysterious.
I look into the parallel world.

The shape of plants attracts me. Their perfection surprises me.
For whom and why are they so beautiful?

The green colour of plants is mysterious. This is because we can’t dye anything green using plants, even though they are green by themselves. Their colour can’t be preserved. Green is a colour of an illusion, and only where life is.
Under the Moonlight they show me very profound, various greys

They are just there and gone soon.
I try to resist this vanishing and keep the memories.
