my journey with a cam

I capture the patterns I see around me.
Every day there is something beautiful that jumps out of the working life and makes me smile.

In Alexa Meade’s portraits, she literally paints her subjects. 

Instead of painting on canvas (you know, like most people do), Meade paints directly on her subjects and snaps a photo. The effect is what looks like a two-dimensional painting. To explain the optical illusion, she says, “The mask of paint mimics what is directly below it. In this way, I am able to take a three-dimensional scene and make it look like a two-dimensional painting.” 

These GIFs break the illusion, but watch this to see the true effect »

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable.There is another theory which states that this has already happened.
