The Alien Mantis

October 17, 2016  •  1 Comment

It's well known that committed photographers are drawn to old things: the weathered; the corroded; the dilapidated. It's not so well known that some extra-terrestrial life forms can morph into old stuff and lie in wait for unsuspecting photographers.

Well, that's my theory anyway. How else can we explain the unsolved mystery of the disappearance of two mentally and physically sound, and well known photographers on 23rd October 2011, whose broken cameras and tripods were discovered in rugged country in the Great Dividing Range, in a crater bearing scorch marks. They were last seen leaving the Mooraback campground in Werrikimbe National Park.

Mystery is at the heart of creativity. That, and surprise. — Julia Cameron

Quest for the Corroded Alien MantisIt's well known that photographers gravitate to old stuff, the weathered, corroded, and dilapidated. It's not so well known that some extra-terrestrial life forms are capable of morphing into old stuff and lying in wait for photographers.

Because photographers are a rare breed, eye on the subject through the camera lens, they are in an altered state of being. They can become deaf, blind, have no concept of time, placement of their feet or direction travelled.
These are the reasons why one must follow this practice, and become one of this exceptional class of human beings.
