The Wolf of Gubbio

The Sea Here, Teaching Me


|
upward shot of the top of a large cathedral with two towers flanking the center structure, both with a turret at the very top (a steeple). the image is overlaid with light leaks of purple and red, and while the cathedral is lit by the sun, the shadows are green. it looks like the film was ruined, overexposed, or opened up, so the image is saturated with watercolor-ish colors.

Some Saint


|

Conjoined


|
a profile that is almost back of the head of a man driving. He has curly hair and in the front of the image, you can see the blurry top of his hand on the steering wheel. Sun comes in from through the windshield and casts a glow on his face. The whole image is washed in blue and green tones like it's underwater.

Impractical Part

far away shot of a city and freeway in twilight. everything in the image is bathed in a deep purple, violet twilight. on the freeway, the headlights of the car make little pinpricks of light. the sky hanging above the earth is dark purple nearest the ground and the trees, and then there is a burst of yellow and deep pink clouds under a pale sky the color of eggshells, just as a smooth, and dimming steadily.
