Phantom of my mind

The Phantom of my mind has many guises;

often behaves benign, benevolent and gracious

but frequently harsh, hostile and hurtful:

the Phantom of my mind, not easily dislodged.

  1. Phantom living
    A ghost before my eyes
    A deep thrill feeling
    That someone roams my life
    Sets off in the air at night
    Steers me round to mother earth
    Turns this search into a pair of learning eyes
    Staring at a photograph
    Doesn’t stir the memory
    Of something I thought would last
    Underneath it all

    I lose myself
    With a distance in my mind
    Throwing out deception
    Emplanted, steals my time
    I feel the meaning
    Your words cannot describe
    And perverts the answer
    Of this action underlined
    Staring at an open book
    Just becomes the story
    Of something I thought would last
    Underneath it all

    Phantom living
    This is phantom living

  2. You can make double exposures in your camera? That’s neat — what model camera do you use? I don’t think my camera can do that. The large face in the foreground is interesting — I almost didn’t see it. I also see a small dog cast in a reflection…I think! Haha.

    • Thank you, my friend, Yes, my camera , like many if you dig down into the menu, can do 9 frames onto one shot..gets a bit of a muddle!!I I usually set it to do two or three. I like it as it is a bit of a hit or miss thing and you never know what you get. Often it does not work, but practise gets you halfway. I use a Nikon D3, a pro sports camera, now surpassed of course by the D4..very desirable…but D3 it is fine for me as this stage, just a bit bulky in cities..but who cares!!.

      • I’ll have to check my camera — combining 9 frames is pretty crazy — but I’m sure the outcome can be entertaining. The Nikon D3 probably has more creative options than the Canon Rebel T5i (which is what I use).

        The D3 is a popular Nikon model for astrophotographers — I’m pretty sure that camera has a decent signal to noise ratio.

I sell collectibles and art online and often find the things I've found have hilarious and at times, dark stories to tell. It's thrilling for me to be creatively random, so always expect the unexpected in the things I share with you.
