Default My surrealistic painter friend Wolfgang Maria

Friend of mine and old style surrealistic Painter Wolfgang Maria was my model yesterday in the Park,
ist just so happened out of coincidence...








...and I was "painting" him using my cam + lens (using an old radiographic lens: one for you Asher) ;-)

Obrigado Antonio! Well, it is some kind of "obsession" I guess, which lets me find and use some exotic glass.
But I wanted to start doing portraits, so this is my "coming out" with that... ;-)

This is exactly why soft focus lenses were invented!

Damn lenses which are clinically sharp everywhere!

When every kid in the class gets a prize for best performance, it becomes meaningless.

Your choise of lens gives a surrealist touch to a surrealist painter! It really fits.

Hi
sorry to say but:

Come on ... this is not surrealism (not even this romantic surrealism of Vienna's Fuchs or Arik Brauer), this is romantic-pop of the Hippie-Age.
It reminds me of some LP-Covers of that time ... :-)))
