Picnic Dreams


copyright Jeff Ball 2007

This picnic table, framed by the mountains and seemingly afloat on the waters of a placid lake, is straight out of a dream.  The fisheye lens blurs the harsh lines of reality and invites us to retreat from the hassels of day-to-day life.  The image is like a sphere of serenity–the image a bubble reflects as it floats away.

    Wow this is awesome. I can almost see the water moving. The way the edges blurr on the bubble cropping makes your vision get sucked into the “dream”. Very claming and strange, i like it.

    I am a big fan of this piece as well. It has an eerie yet comforting feel to it. It is aptly named as it conjures up memories of long-forgotten dreams. Awesome!
