“Coming out of sleep, I had the advantage of two worlds, the layered firmament of dream and the temporal fixtures of the mind awake. I stretched luxuriously—a good and tingling sensation. It’s as though the skin has shrunk in the night and one must push it out to daytime size by bulging the muscles, and there’s an a itching pleasure in it.” – John Steinbeck #fineartphotography #abstract #noir #visualartdiary_michmutters #Australia #visualpoetry #blackndwhitephotography
