    • Thanks! Much appreciated!
      It’s a double exposure in the camera. One exposure on the tree and one exposure on me.This can be done in photoshop too, but it wouldn’t be the same. I prefer doing it in the camera, very simple technique.

        • I do almost nothing in photoshop, just small adjustment such as a little contrast, blackness or cropping. I don’t do these kind of images in photoshop, takes too long and one can see if it’s photoshopped. It’s much easier to do it directly in the camera. And you can do these kind of double-exposures in several of the cameras today. I have a Pentax K20D and it’s very easy to double-exposure and multi-exposure. I was doing it when I was analogue too. Why do it in photoshop when you can do it in the camera?

          • Wow, that’s awesome. I don’t know much about photography or photoshop, but I sure do like looking at good images. Thank you for sharing this amazing image. Keep on blogging. Cheers!

  1. Great self-portrait. Reminds me of King Missile.

    King Missile – The Trees

    Then there was the time that the earth was ruled by trees.
    There were emperor trees and empress trees. All trees were royalty. Their roots sank deeply down into the ground, and their branches reached higher into the sky than the birds could fly. And the trees all communicated with each other, and all of them together made the decisions for the entire planet. Their authority went unquestioned for many thousands of years. They were wise and benevolent rulers, and the world prospered.

    But when the others came, they did not understand or recognize the power of the trees. They set up new systems that supplanted the trees and sapped their strength. And now the trees bleed rivers of blood down in the ground under our feet. There’s an ocean of blood in the core of the earth, and now we write on trees. We make furniture out of trees. We clean up kitchen spills with trees. We wipe our spotty behinds with trees. We put trees in our houses at Christmastime. The trees say nothing, because now they are weak. But they know that our time will be brief, that we will soon perish and the trees will rule again, and the earth will be strong and beautiful once more.
    So, you see, it’s not such a sad story after all.
