love is just a myth by DelilahWoolf love is just a myth by DelilahWoolf
this is not manipulation, it's film,disposeable underwater cam.

i fell asleep underwater yesterday. and i had a dream. i was a mermaid again. like Pheobe. the other day, i watched the episode where Pheobe and Cole first met. probably that's why. i saw you on the land. reaching out for me. but my heart starting growing cold, that's what happens to mermaids, you know. the sea was calling for me. i swam, swam to the caves. with jellyfishes and sea horses. i sat down on a turtle, and i sang. sang songs i've done for you, even that one we've done together. sang for the whole kingdom of the sea. then an octopus came by, said you were calling for me. he said, that you loved me and wanted me. all the dolphins got excited, they said they've seen people in love, and that it was a good thing. in our kingdom love is just a myth. something noone had, and wanna believe it. i looked at the octopus and i told him, i'm loyal to my kingdom, that i cannot go. i'm a mermaid you know, sea is all i know.

this is a shot from that same day. with the same disposeable underwater cam. lovely melis has taken this shot. this is me just floating, not really willing to breath actually.

Daily Deviation

Given 2008-03-11
love is just a myth by ~DelilahWoolf has that great 70s muted film aesthetic and a really striking sense of how the composition of an image can make or break it. The light streaming in throuh water, the pose of the model, and the movement within the piece make it work beautifully. The dreamlike reflective qualities of the image make it surreal and inviting, perhaps hopefully, perhaps tragic. The many conflicting readings that come through in this image also make it fit the MO of surrealism. The suggester said, "The reason I enjoy this shot so much is because of the sheer emotion it evokes when you view it--it can take the viewer to almost a dream-like reality, and you can practically hear the silence of the underwater world. Not only that, but the choice of title wraps it all up into one outstanding piece of art." ( Suggested by SpenserG89 and Featured by opioid )

hmm, not sure i agree, i do believe love is a mystery, but definitely not a myth, that is not to say that I personally have found nor understand love, but it's one of those things that i can say for certain is there...it's just a mystery and reveals itself to whom it wants :( seems to be cruel that way

i guess it depends on how you define love. here i'm talking more of a holy thing. i really don't know how to explain.

according to the law of physics, in order for there to be love there would have to be hate to balance things out.. and in order for there to be great love, there would have to be great hate.. if not, there would be a catastrophe, in which case there would have to be peace sizable to the catastrophe which would encompass love.. so yeah, no matter which way you look at it, love is a paradox, and even if you dont want to apply the law of physics to it, it is the case, just look around world, no matter how great a happiness and love there is, there is an equal amount of despair and hate somewhere in the world to balance it out.. prove me wrong :|

i guess i cannot prove you wrong. but all i can say, or quote, jane birkin says in one of her songs: "hate is just a typo in love"
