the dreamer by quemas the dreamer by quemas

Last Night I dreamed of you and I was not sleeping

I dreamed that it was not necessary to do any effort
so that you were surrendering, in you I was immersed

How beautiful that it is to dream, to dream it doesn't cost anything
dream and nothing more. with open eyes

How beautiful that it is to dream
and it does not cost you anything, any more than "time".

What to do with so many anxiety, for not decisive things
with all this energy almost always badly put

If I could forget, forever of myself
I should be there in your sweet abis

Daily Deviation

Given 2009-05-25
Most people may be familiar with portraits similar to this, however the subject of the photo is almost always a female in a glamorous setting. And that is what instantly drew me to the dreamer by ~quemas. It is not only a self portrait, but it manages to be beautiful, elegant and handsomely masculine at the same time. It reminds me of the commonly portrayed concept of Ophelia, but it is so unique in the sense that the subject is male. ( Featured by PorcelainPoet )

The colors are so vibrant and yet I see something dark about it. His expression adds a contrast to the seemingly calm enviorment. I love it!

I very much agree with ^PorcelainPoet's description of why this was made a DD. I was also struck by the contrast in this man's tanned skin and the luminous colours of the water. :+fav:

I like how the distortion due to the water, the clarity of the water, and the blues and greens give such a feeling of depth and coolness. Having those small lily leaves overlap his chest is a nice touch; I think it adds to the layers and adds to the "vacation in a summer paradise" feel to this image. I really like it!
