Balderdash - Visions of the Otherworld - Photography Contest

Balderdash - Bagatelle & Trinketry

☪ Balderdash - Visions of the Otherworld Photography Contest ☪

Not so very long ago, there was a lonely girl who sat and dreamed. She dreamt of fantastic things.

She dreamed of ancient places woven in light and shadow, She dreamed of places made of cloud and petal, of rock and
water. She dreamed of beings made of bark, of earth, with twigs in their hair, crystals in their skin, and froth from the
waves or leaves from the trees fluttering against their bodies.

She dreamed of dark places where caves rumbled in song, where unseelie dancers twirled and stomped, sending shadows against stone walls, and mists gathered thick in cool blankets against the earth.

From time to time the girl would take out her pencils and inks, and would sketch in books with thick paper... She would sketch, and she would sketch, but never could she replicate the magical things she found in her dreaming, for they would not flow through her hands when summoned, begged, or bargained with.

And this, my friend, brings us to you...... Perhaps you can capture what she could not......
