Double Exposures by Andre de Freitas

Here's a great set of double expsoures by Andre de Freitas. I find double exposures extremely fascinating. It gives a glimpse into two completely separate but intertwined worlds. Whenever I see them, I try to imagine what went through the photographer's mind when combining these images. I am especially curious about the first image in the set. It feels like there is a beautiful tale waiting to be told by this image.

Flight by Bill Jemison

From Bill Jemison, "This was a "hidden gem" taken at the same time as my ribbon winner from the "Celebration" challenge. It was only after quite a bit of effort that the underlying beauty of the image appeared. This was a misty morning during the 2005 Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta and I took the shot from a hill in Rio Rancho, NM where I live as the balloons drifted northward along the Rio Grande River in the bosque (river forest). "

Harbinger by Cole Thompson

This text accompanies Cole Thompson's Harbinger project.:

Harbinger:

 ˈhär-bən-jər       noun

1. one that goes ahead and makes known the approach of another; herald.
2. anything that foreshadows a future event; omen; sign.

I love this addition and how it adds a bit of context to the photos.  Each photo has a solitary cloud that definitely adds to their interestingness. I also like the choice of making the photos black and white. It helps to create a sharp contrast between the cloud and its surroundings. If you like this series, I definitely suggest checking out the rest of his portfolio.
