Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the starship Enterprise. Its 5-year mission: to explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.
~ Captain James T. Kirk Commander of the Starship U.S.S. Enterprise (1966-1969)
In my next life I’m going to be an astronaut and head to Mars, oh yes, and save John Carter and Matt Damon while I’m at it. Because I love astronomy and all things space I decided to visit the Brisbane Botanic Gardens again to take a photo of the planetarium.
No filters were used during the taking of Photograph 1…
The planetarium in all it’s natural beauty – all lines, curves, blue, white and camel.
A greyscale or black and white perspective of the original photo. The white dome in the background appears snow white, the rest lifeless and grey.
I used the negative filter for this perspective. The lines on the planetarium stand out including the curving stairwell. The snow white dome is now in darkness and the foliage from trees brilliant white – looks like I made it to Mars – now to find John Carter and Matt Damon – see ya!
Fully saturated, this perspective (to me) has an apocalyptic vibe, from the muddy sky, to the seemingly dead branch and charcoal leaves, the only thing that appears to signify life is the jade pathway.
As an aside, my eldest grandson and I saw Cosmic Collisions and Saturday night ‘live’ last year – interesting and spectacular nights out. When life gives you lemons – look to the skies 🙂
