In Search Of Dorothy

Not all yellow brick roads will lead you to Oz, not all you see is real, not all that is real is what you see.

One of my favourite saying is "I never promised you reality" Your imagination is as vital as your equipment.

One of a series of older shots produced for a CD cover, one similar to this was used, this was not.


I have not been able to get on much for the last few days but I will later, I am back in work, speak to you soon :)

"The wizard of Oz" is not what it seems to be .... we must learn to read under the lines ....
 
This shot is brilliant! The gloomy atmosphere plays perfectly against the bright and cheery brick pathway.

Just a street in Kalifornee or is it?? ;-)
 
All that is gold does not glitter,
Not all those who wander are lost;
The old that is strong does not wither,
Deep roots are not reached by the frost.

I don't think I've seen a yellow brick road before,
only heard about them ...
Maybe this one doesn't lead to Oz, but it sure leads into a nice haze.
 
Close Ur eyes and click Ur heals, ....Nothg seems to happen , but the ruing of my heels. Lol.
BEAUITFUL pic. Mike.

Can I get the name of what you're smoking?
 
That was not a slam, by the way, just a cool observation....

I wish I knew what that guy was saying up there in Arabic, or is it Hebrew? No disrespect. I can't even read his name so how can I ponounce it? I think Google has a translator or someone else does. I'll have to check it out. So the world has blindly finally adopted the universal language that was foretold. One language. The computer and it's language. Gotta' get off this computer........
 
One of my favorite sayings is " I never promised you a rose garden "..... I'm still looking for my yellow brick road
 
Very cool picture, Mike. I love objects disappearing into a foggy horizon!

I started out with nothing and still have almost all of it left what road can take you there yellow or not
 
"Not all yellow brick roads will lead you to Oz, not all you see is real, not all that is real is what you see." wonderful
 
wunderbar (voon-day-ba)- it means good in german

Yellow Brick Road for sure...................... Hurry up Dorothy.
 
You definitely have a distinctive style. Very enjoyable.
 
Thank you everyone, for those that asked this is my home town in Cheshire UK, the road is an old Victorian promenade and the bricks are in fact a deep fired earth red, I decided to change them in post editing to give this effect (I knew when I took the shot what I wanted) The mist/fog is as it was, we can get a lot of sea mist rolling in up the Mersey estuary and you have to catch it just right.
 
i wish i was walking on those bricks for hours without stopping or getting tired...
 
Mike Shaw, you are one of a kind, so talented. I love your view, fab.

it reminds me of a short story that i did in high school "the yellow brick road"
 
i saw that movie n also read story perhaps the yellow bricks looks cool n nice
 
I ask this Thread own parts? Can you Gyshvn
 
what happens if i click my heels three x?  it's been noted that i've quite a fertile imagination... but reality... is reality... and it's there right in front of us... whether we like it or not... The word 'Imagination' = I am magic...
 
exactly it reminds me Dorothy :) golden path made of gold
