Leonard's Stories about Time


Capturing Stories about Time




I made this comment on one of Leonard Nimoys self portraits photos later shown in Paris. The photo was posted to twitpic 1074 days ago and I added my thoughts 21 days later... I don't know if "Grandpa" ever read what I wrote but if he did, I sure hope he got a kick out of it. I have since come to appreciate the spiritual message in this film. What do your scientific/spiritual instincts tell you? Here's Leonard Nimoy's Story.







This is the first self portrait that I have done that relates to this issue. The light for me is a lifeforce, thats the energy for me in photography and light in life is a metaphor for energy and life. Theres movement in the face here you can see, which is also a time exposure, open up the lens and turn to face the camera while the lens was open. So you get that sense of movement.

What do you think of Leonard's "stories about time" caught on film? Did you find his self portrait freaky cool? How would you describe his portrait in time?

Sad he won't be posting any more.
Cool image and like his thoughts behind it.

I love how he imagines time. The cracked-open egg and the series of shots of the Yoga gal. His image is almost haunting since he has gone to the other side and that bright light reminds me of a famous painting of a bright light with angels and people moving towards it. I wonder if his "clock" was on the mark or not?

Time is such an artifical construct - and so very important to you.
Love his take on it. And hope that he is with kindred questioning souls...

The yoga gal technique was unique because it captured "time" with 24 interesting body movements during the course of one hour with 1 roll of film. Now thats fascinating!

A wonderful comment you made Spacerguy and I'm sure he got a chuckle out of it. #LLAP

I will forever regret not going to comic con when he visited the year before he died. Nimoy is the man. I'm sure he caught your comment and is smiling somewhere. :)

I don't usually watch 12 minute YouTube videos, but I could listen to Leonard Nimoy talk about time and religion and photos all day long. What a captivating watch.

Leonard Nimoy had that rare ability to ignite fans with enthusiasm. The needs of the many followed the one. Star Trek fans high fived, laughed and jumped for joy. He believed in us.
