SMOKE PORTRAITS are ethereal smoke images, in which, I see eerie and mystical faces—not everyone has this ability, but I guess I am very aware of such “spirits” living inside my smoke portraits.

“Anubis (/əˈnjuːbɪs/;[1] Ancient Greek: Ἄνουβις, Egyptian, Coptic: Anoup) is the Greek name of a god associated with mummification and the afterlife in ancient Egyptian religion, usually depicted as a canine or a man with a canine head. Archeologists have identified Anubis’ sacred animal as an Egyptian canid, the African golden wolf.” (Wikipedia).

I have a feeling that like my Fire Portraits Series, most all of the portraits of this series will be evil, or mystical appearing.

Series Description:
These artworks are photo-creations of Nawfal Johnson’s original paintings, and also, image creations from photographs captured of decaying urban walls. “Disorderly-Order”, the name of this series, has two distinct meanings. One, there is a method (Order) to the madness (Disorder) in the execution of these artworks. Two, the artist is taking a “more orderly” painting, or a fragment of an urban wall (photographed), and turing it up-side-down, and inside out, to get to the final photographic art representation. The disorderly from within the work, that is the order of the design built into the photographic artwork. Thus, these are ‘two-steps’ artwork creations—first-step, creating a painting (or photographing an urban still-life of a wall); and then, second-step, taking the original creation and designing a final art photograph.

Title: “ARES WAR HELMET, Edit H”.

Creation Date: 7 March 2018.
“Fire Portraits” Series.
Series Years: 2017 – 2018.

Influence: “To Reign in Hell” novel by Steven Brust.

Art Photographs: Photography of fire shaped into Portrait-like imagery, of the characters, angels, in “To Reign in Hell”, written by Steven Brust.

Note 1: After doing the first art photo, I said to myself, “I’m seeing some faces from Brust’s novel in this image, and I need to investigate, and work this out further to see what develops.”

Note 2: One very interesting aspect of Brust’s story is that all of the angels were essentially good until a conflict and deception arose among the angels. On top of that, the three “evil” angels in the story ( evil according to many ‘modernised’ views…modern being several thousand years for Satan/Lucifer/Devil, and hundreds for Mephisto ) — Satan and Lucifer are the same entity, and Mephistopheles is the name invented for the historical Johann Georg Faust (c. 1480–c. 1540), and in demonology, Mephistopheles was “one of the seven chief devils and the tempter of Faust”. Nevertheless, in Brust’s story, Satan and Lucifer are “First-Borns”, and Mephistopheles is an archangel, not devils or demons.

Note 3: My Brust angels are a contradiction because they are made of fire. Angels, “fallen” or not, made of fire, I think is a contradiction.

Here is a better presentation of my photograph.


I don’t believe I have gotten any likes on any of my photographs at the Olympus contest, but that seems very typical. Either people don’t visit my images, or they aren’t interesting……….hahaha! The people aren’t interesting, not my photos.

OR, people DON’T hit the “Like” button for my photos…….

because, there are no beautiful women in them.

Hey, I will hit the “Like” button within 5 seconds of seeing a photograph that has a gorgeous woman in it. Don’t you? Come on, be honest…it doesn’t necessarily need to be a good photo overall as long as the photographer has not cut the top of the model’s head off, or blown-out the highlights. The background won’t matter too much either, as long as, there are no pointy tree branches sticking out of the model’s head, as if she had been jabbed with a stick to the head. As long as the model is beautiful, nothing else really matters, HIT THE FRACKING “LIKE” BUTTON, RIGHT! That’s the way it usually goes.

But, of course, I am being a little sarcastic, can’t you tell? The Devil IS in the details!

I just hope the judges do not base their decision on the number of ridiculous “Likes” a photo has…

… Because, the number of Likes do NOT determine a photograph’s quality!

I can guarantee you that there are probably plenty of so-so photographs of pretty women in them, submitted to this contest—I am just taking an educated guess based on previous experiences with other photography contests. That is fine and OK, but please, I hope the judging of images looks beyond superficial matters, and instead, looks at details, composition, quality, etc. And, I’m sure Olympus will because of their respected judges.
