    • thanks! These are two different photos taken on the same frame of film. One shot was of Zarek’s silhouette with the great rift valley behind him. The other shot was of a tree. So, since Zarek was originally dark in the first picture, his form was filled in when I took the second picture of the tree…if that makes any sense : )

      • I agree. Oftentimes double exposures get too messy and distracting to the eye. I think some folks feel that any double exposure will be instantly cool, but I disagree. However, when they do work, they can be really striking. I found that using silhouettes or basic patterns work best : )

    • Thanks, I’m so pleased you like it : ) I suppose it does have a surreal quality like a Magritte painting. Here’s a quote from Magritte on his famous painting, The Son of Man: “Everything we see hides another thing, we always want to see what is hidden by what we see. There is an interest in that which is hidden and which the visible does not show us. This interest can take the form of a quite intense feeling, a sort of conflict, one might say, between the visible that is hidden and the visible that is present.”
