Photo Friday: Blurry Carousels and Fuzzy Trees

So, it's been kind of a rough week. Crazy, sad, busy, emotional, and just straight stressful. I found myself daydreaming a lot this week. Good things and bad things. My head has pretty much just been a whirlwind among other things. So I have to honestly tell you that when I found Pep Ventosa it was like a visual representation of what had been going on in my head and in my life over the past week. Pep Ventosa is a very talented photographer that deconstructs a single moment by combining several images of it to recreate something entirely new and unique. The pictures are fractured and broken yet you can still clearly make out the complete images. It's a really clever way to create artistic photographs that look almost like paintings at a quick glance. All images.

It was hard choosing just a fraction of his collection of art photos to share with you guys so you'll really have to check out the whole thing when you get a chance, but I picked out my favorites for you to see. The carousel photos were the ones that caught my eyes first because they were busy and spinning and a blur, but you can clearly make out that they are carousels. I am also a fan of the lamps and trees even though many of them resemble abstract paintings, not photographs. However, I'm pretty positive they drew me in because I like taking pictures of street lamps and trees. Don't ask me why, I won't have an answer for you.

I hope you enjoyed these pictures as much as I did and I'd love to hear which ones were your favorite!

Have a great weekend,


  1. Last week I was playing with some time lapse / multiple exposure shots.

    Seeing these photos makes me want to push it even farther. My next one I want to shoot Marilyn Monroe.

    The way Pep Ventosa layers his images reminds me when I took every letter in the alphabet and layered it.

    Excuse me leaving two links in this post. I wanted to share some similar thoughts. :)

    1. Haha no worries! I never mind links to your blog. I'm glad these inspired you, I've really fallen in love with them and want to try something similar. Although, I'll have to figure out how use Photoshop first.
