Daily Deviation

Given 2014-01-20
Personal Nirvana by *MARX77 A poetic image where the man, absorbed in his world, isolated by the headphones, seems to be wandering in another galaxy, maybe the one we see on the wall. ( Suggested by pavboq and Featured by myraincheck )
:iconsylunahirokashi:
Amazing concept between light and color, I love how fragile and powerful the message looks. His expression shows such passion for his music, like submitting him to a "galaxy" of wonders! The lightings is what captures my attention the most and makes me wanna dream, imagining to hear my favorite songs all over my head and travel beyond my creativity. I would be far happier if it weren't cropped this way, it captured me a little off tune on this art piece, but at the same time it evolves a certain creativity from yourself.
I simply love this, it captures such an excellent moment between Art and Life, like if the lights in the hallway are calling for you! Great job.

Yeah, it's pretty fucking awesome and like brilliant and shit.

Wait, I have to write 90 more words? But I've already described it. What else am I suppose to say other than I want to know this guys playlist?

Seriously, this piece is wonderful. Even without the right hand side of the image, the look of this man resting on the crossbars of his bike, his mind far, far, away from everything around him... Orchestrating the musicians with his left hand... His mind projected onto the wall he cannot see but for the enjoyment of others.

That's me projecting though... He may be calling his family to say he'll be late or telling his child to do their homework or telling a patient to calm down and take their meds (that'd be me).

As usual, I stand in awe of MARX77's work. To always inspire stories around a single image.

This is totally Boss!

This is stunning, I absolutely agree with everything pavboq had to say about this piece, and personally, after having a correspondence from someone in the UAE, I've always wanted to see Dubai. This photo tells me there's more there than I would anticipate seeing! :D

In this photo you captured something spiritual about humans. Even if that man is listening to Justin Bieber and the wall has been painted by stoned Terence McKenna it doesn't matter because this is a mirror image of the observer's mind. It's a great and deep picture my friend! Congratulations!!!

Man, you made me cry... I'm sobbing in fact! 
Not because of your wonderful and heartfelt comment, but because now... I can't get the thought of that man listening to Justin Bieber out of my mind. It is all that I'm going to think about whenever I look at this photo.
You've scarred me for life!

Okay, so maybe I'm overreacting. It could've been worse; he'd be listening to Miley Cyrus for all we know... Oh shoot! That's another awful thought.
