  1. Nice. The shot of the forest with the blue tarp (?) is unsettling. seems like something from a Homicide.Like that shot because it kind of jarred me.

    • Yes, the idea was to subtly lull the viewer into a false sense of security through a series of mostly everyday forest shots, and then to end it with a “mystery shot”. I tried to be as discreet as possible in doing this by not changing the colour schemes or mood too drastically, in order not to give anything away. I’m so glad to hear that you picked up on this as I thought I might have been a bit too discreet in my efforts after viewing these again. Cheers for the spot on comment Timm!

    Hey Cam, I’ve always wanted to see where the swamp thing lived. I presumed the blue tarp was his make-shift house, not the scene of a homicide but both ideas are great! (I’m a little unwell in the head – you get that).

    • Hi MJ! Yeah, I’ve often seen him lurking about, always there in the corner of your eye…Don’t worry, that makes 2 of us, being a little unwell in the head that is, LOL.

  3. For me, the feeling of uneasiness starts with the second image and continues: the part open wooden door; the mystery lights; the strange object which could be an old bath or boat – then the strange blue object: I got the shudders early on!

    • Yeah, I was trying to build it up a bit, and I must confess that the idea for this series was completely ‘Twin Peaks’ based. Thanks Meanderer!

  4. You are adept at creating mood in your photography. I love looking at it, because it’s impossible not to feel something towards it. This set makes me feel unsettled and nostalgic.

    • Thank you so much James. And yes, I find the creation of a specific mood to be quite important, maybe of utmost importance actually. So to hear you saying that you felt unsettled and nostalgic while viewing them means a lot, it means that some of what I tried to do worked, which is fantastic news obviously! Cheers, JP
