One Day in My Life

I was shocked having known I needed to sit for a test tomorrow.  After clearing my mind, I laughed with relief as my last examination happened some twenty seven years ago. I had a dream!

I was then testing the surrounding very relaxedly with my camera while a hiker passed by this morning. I took a shot of her receding figure. This was really a shot only and she was fast to disappear over a bend.

A quick playback showed me a total dark screen, but there was no pressure as nobody would mark this result.

However, it turned out to be fine after some editing works. All these changes I have gone through repeat everywhere.

Here and there.

This is pretty dark. But if you share few more of your test result I may be able to follow the story.

Die meisten unserer Träume werden schon wahr, aber immer zu oft späterem Zeitpunkt und auch in abgewandelter Form, somit gibt es keinen Grund einen Traum sofort anzunehmen...

when there is too much, every Friday, we have munchies at work, yesterday was extra, lunch as well, and supper. I ate far too much.

we have had similar anxiety dreams of long past exams and everything else seems ok in comparison.your photograph is very much a true early morning sight,like the cool depth and spark of light.

I never dream about school, but my daughter, cum laude graduate, often dreams about being unprepared for a test and she doesn't understand why as she was always super-prepared for them. Dreams are strange.

Sharkbytes said...

It's the ghost of the shark hiker passing through your forest.

Ratty said...

You did a good job with taking this photo. The darkness makes it feel very mysterious.

Malar said...

Awesome picture.....To tell the truth it look a bit scary too...hahahhaaa..

Nancy Claeys said...

Dreams of school? Mine are always embarrassing. :)

Sallie (Fulltime-Life) said...

betchai said...

George said...

I would really like to learn more about your test results, since they lead to such creative photos.

Angie said...

the pic look surreal and mysterious... you captured your dream very well, look a little scary too.. amazing!!

kumittyi said...

What a beautiful scenery! Your picture shows a subtle and profound world,I think.

Poetic Shutterbug said...

Dreams always fascinate me. You are brave, Rainfield in that it was so dark at that time. It is a complex yet beautiful shot. I could write a poem about your artistry here.

AVCr8teur said...

Your fading figure could have been a dream too. How can you be sure if she was real? Maybe your mind is testing you.

Cher said...

haha! always had the same dream about having an exam and haven't reviewed a single thing. panick attack! lol!

dramatic effect, love the lighting.

Giga said...

To nie był sen, to była rzeczywistość. Chyba byłeś zaspany jeszcze, jak robiłeś do zdjęcie. Pozdrawiam.
It was not a dream, it was reality. I think you were still asleep, as did the picture :). Yours

Jean said...

NICE.
