another cool pic, real or not...
What's wrong with this picture?Partly cloudy, sunlight a fixtureA ship without worries,no dangling flurries!Sunrise or sunset? It's hard to tellBut it sure does ring a warning bellInteresting, the lack of rainAfter all, this is purportedly a hurricane!Photoshop is a great tool,heck it added the spoolOf what is supposed to be an eyeBut of the ocean it's awfully shyIt's time to put this to restas just a hoax and a jest
Note: I am not a poet.
My brain isn't parsing this one. What is that, a bathtub?
i'm guessing its a bathtub..
it's kid of an abstract shape. Beksinski is notorious for highly detailed non-specific things in his works. to me it bears a vague resemblance to a ship being lifted from the water.
To me it just doesn't look like a hull.It's bizarre. Thank you.
Can i just say, FOR THE RECORD, that i have a severe phobia of looking at pictures of sinking - or sunken - ships, boats, airplanes, etc. Like, i get an instant pavlovian response where i can't breate and i feel the overwhelming urge to run and i have to tear my eyes away from the picture because i can't control the panic.
Yep, well anyway, whatever that thing was, it totally got that response from me. So whoever the artist was, good job.
What does the 'spear and magic HEL-met' thing reference, anyway? I've been trying to figure that out for months.
My guess: As in the cartoon, the magic helmet allows elmer to cast lightning bolts, with the command "Wightning, stwike!", it refers to the likelihood of impending death by electrical discharge.
That was the best Looney Tunes EVER!!!
Thanks for the clip, now I need to find the whole thing. ;>
I agree... it's a really cool pic.
Perhaps we'll find out here eventually if it's real or not: http://www.snopes.com/photos/isabel.asp
Someone emailed me this pic yesterday... I brought up the fact that it looked like it could be fake. There seems to be some choppy strangeness that makes each side of the mast look like too drastic a change. And the horizon looks too cropped in on that side. Now I'm rambling.
How about the fact that there are no waves in an ocean that's been churning for how many days?
Definately awesome pic! Not Isabel though, 'cause I got all clouds here when the first edge of it touched us, and I can't imagine there being any bits of sky deeper inside the storm unless maybe you're in the eye
I know for a fact that I've seen this image months ago.. so it definitely isn't Isabel.
And on the message boards where I found it, the general consensus was that it was a fake image altogether, anyway.
I guess the consensus wasn't as definite as I thought... here is the thread where I first saw it.
kinda illustrates to me how wierd a hurricane is. I guess I forget.
cool piccy - but no cigar. The piccy uses 2 different cloud-types which never appear together - at least, that close. Still, I'm spoiling the magic.
I've been on ships sailing into storm fronts, and you do get this dichotomy of flatness then a wall of grey. But that's it - it's a wall of grey cloud raising way up.
It tracks nicely across the radar in one long line, and the barometer dips once you pass through.
I've seen mini-tornadoes on a flat, owise grand South China Sea days but, nah...
