A Few New Selections at ImageKind!

Alien Water Photographs by Nawfal Nur


Just a quick note, and a quick mention of some new work I have posted in my ImageKind Gallery, “Alien Water”.  I decided to change things up a bit there.  At first glance, I want visitors of my gallery to see more of my diversity.  Thus, I’ve added some new water droplet photographs, as well as, some images from my Sci-Fi Landscapes Series, Math Conceptual, Cosmetics-Art, Smoke Photography, High-Key Flower and Still Life photography.  Please have a look – Thanks!

The Last Tree, v.2” is an image from the “DARK”, and the “Sci-Fi Landscapes” Series. This image enters the realm of both collections for different reasons.

It is in the “DARK” Series because, God-Forbid the day, if it ever comes, where a world is left with a single, sick-looking tree, stuck in the middle of who knows where, with its roots clinging to a rocks surface, as if holding on for dear life.

It crosses into the “Sci-Fi Landscapes” collection because the environment is “alien”.

A blackened sun sits in open Space while captivating and poisonous air fills the environment. What chance of survival does this last specimen have?

Obviously, the caretakers of this planet have abandoned this place. With it, any remaining life has been left to fend for itself. The fate of this last tree is unknown.

However, take a look around…what chance do you think it has? Truly, the beings of this planet allowed their selfishness and greed to control them, and in the process, their environment suffered – environmental sustainability was an unknown or neglected concept.

What you wouldn’t know from just looking at this photograph, is that the rock that this last trees sits atop, is actually a small mountain that used to stand over 7,000 feet above sea level.

What you do see here is the result of a planet that was covered largely with deep, mountainous ice structures, disastrous climate changes, and environmental destruction at its worst.

Here stands The Last Tree.
