“ETHEREAL DREAMS” Smoke Art by Nawfal Johnson Nur.

This is my 2011 Calendar. Each month of the calendar shows a different smoke art creation. These images are creations of smoke photography. The smoke images create imaginary ethereal subjects.

The subjects seen are very individualized interpretations. In other words, what I see in the smoke may be totally different from what you see in the smoke.

I have included the national holidays of The United States, Canada and Mexico.

Here’s a tip on how to enjoy the photographs of my calendar for a longer time than usual, AND, get more for your money. Each photograph, which is printed on high-quality glossy photo paper, can be removed from the calendar, matted and framed. THEREFORE, you are not only purchasing a calendar, but for the SAME PRICE, you are purchasing 12 individual artwork pieces that you can matte and frame to enjoy a long time.

Thank you!

Abstract, No-5, 2009, originally uploaded by N. Nur.

I don’t have very much to say today.

At times, I think a lot of words are wasted on saying nothing of importance, really.

However, I heard something very insightful the other day from Jay Maisel (from an interview on the Internet), he said something to the effect of, ‘you don’t capture pictures, they capture you.’

This makes a lot of sense to me. If I’m not captured by a subject, then it is probably not a subject that I would want to photograph. If that photo is not formed in my minds eye first, then for me, there is no photograph there.

That’s just a short thought for the day.
