These remind me a lot of the work of the artist on the program Art Attack out of the UK.
These must have been very patient kids. I'd like to try something like this with MY NEW CAMERA.

How delightful - these works make me imagine how Jeff Wall may have begun his career

Flying dreams are supposed to be about s.e.x. aren't they?
I know that you are not supposed to hit the ground in falling dreams but I always do..I crunch the pavement or buckle the roof of an expensive car but then I just get up and walk away.
Those little Astronaut guys are cute and so is the kid lying on the tranquilized dog...I am not sure why he is dressed like Ali Baba?

Is this photographer 9 feet tall or what?

Love the photographer's work, especially the one of the child in the patch of cabbages and holding the balloons.

I just had a flying dream, and looked it up. The brief interpretation mentioned that this generally means that things are going well, that one is soaring. The site also mentioned that flying dreams are often the precursor to Lucid dreaming.

Thanks for sharing!

I love flying dreams. Almost always when I have them, I take off in the same way: I'll start walking down some stairs then simply lean forwards so that I'm horizontal with the ground which is still about 6 feet below the level at which I am at. Then I push myself off and , voila, I am flying. It's great!!

Hey Andrea,

You've given me an idea. I'd like to devote a post to each of the artists whose work I really admire. So, if you could choose one of your favorites, I'll write a little post for you. If you email me maybe we could go over what I write?

What a great idea!

Looking at these playful astronauts, I can't help thinking of that woman astronaut who confronted her rival in a rather upsetting way.

For some reason, these images reminded me of the moviei The Matrix.

Anyway, they gave me goosebumps, and I don't know why...

I have a lot of dreams about flying ... but I'm not usually wearing a space helmet.

Loved his picture of the little guy on the back of the dog.
