Ghostly Aura Photo Effect

Footsteps In the Dark

A Typical Sunday Walk
and/or
A Photo Journal with a Twist



 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Caution! Contents not suitable for those unable to follow in my footsteps.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
This is not the Ministry of Truth.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
The Elvin lands went green.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Trees, hardwired


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Powering the compound beyond.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
And it's halls.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
I'd be happy to dwadle,
sit a spell.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
But down a sloping corridor


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Wait, I seem to have gotten ahead of myself.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Hold up there, where are you going?


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
She's on a bike, you'll never catch her.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Busy times on the street.
Everyone is going somewhere, doing something.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
In the city


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Secret portal


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
The means of escape


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
A moment of silence


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Quiet sanctuary


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Alone, one with God


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Or a Saint


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Blessed Visage


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
I confess, I do not know what all this symbolism means.
Do you?


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
I've passed this warning everyday for weeks now.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Like water under the bridge.
Flotsam for the mind.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Them Elves sure know their stonework... or should that be Dwarves.
A staircase down...


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
I wonder how many fear parking garages...


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Like unto the gates of hell, is your place reserved?


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Is it?


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
And then the bikes go roaring by.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
A typical Sunday walk, don't know if I mentioned.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Lazing along


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Bringing up the rear


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Perhaps there was a delivery, address unclear.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
But who can care in the sunshine sparkling?


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Rest for the weary in a quiet patch of shade.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
What country is this?
What year?


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
When we have buildings so large, forests within


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
And always building more


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
I walk.
They ride.
Like a tourist gang


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Motors whirring, so quick to depart


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Missing the fine point, the details


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Subatomic particles, nucli on a chain


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
It all goes back to the founders.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
If you follow that path, through the trees of time, flotsam of the mind


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
A light in the darkness, you're all alone.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
And this?
You can have it.
Kapu! Keep out!


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Dead man... could be.
I think of zombies.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
I have a desire to write that book.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
The pages flutter through my mind.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Zombies all around.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
But no one else notices.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Taking pictures of the birds and I of them.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
And their artefacts


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Evidence of their passing


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Somambulence, walking in their sleep, like a good zombie should...


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Like a well-shod zombie should...
So where did the walker go?


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
And what country is this?
What time?
What year?


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
What pillars do we rest our truths upon?


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Did you get the memo, the mail?


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
I don't want anything from there...


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Clandestine, behind the fence, what exchange?


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
There is no privacy in this day and age.
I don't even pack a telescopic lens.
If I did, just think what I could view...


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
But I can see enough


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Broad daylight, village square


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
And there she is.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Time for lunch.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Or morning brew.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Such decadence


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
Such wonder


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
What do you want?


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
How much?


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
In the end, it's money, that makes the world go round.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
But there ain't enough going 'round.


 - Photo Manipulated with the Ghostly Aura Effect Filter
So promises of better days,
is all that we can do.
