POTD: Conjuring FreedomConjuring Freedom
Bozeman, Montana
2016

This composite image resulting from some messing around I did after looking at some MC Escher prints on line and getting inspired by the one shown below.

My image is composed of four separate photos (or parts thereof). The background is a photo of a desk in Paris, at the Conciergerie on the Île de la Cité I believe. The crystal ball is an image of some ravens flying in front of the snow covered Absaroka Mountains in Montana, warped into a hemispherical shape.  The two larger corvids (one crow, one raven) are from my quite large collection of individual bird images, probably hailing form Bozeman or perhaps Yellowstone.

Given the historical period represented by the desk scene from Paris, I decided to give my image a more antiquated look than Escher’s print.
