Eerie RC but I kinda like it, makes me picture a dinosaure coming crashing through but I like the play of blacks on grey.

I love black and white. I see a skeleton face on the left
side...at first glance, I thought perhaps a veiled portrait
in the background from the chin down....
also how many layers are there? It’s collage-like.
Like it very much.

TE - Nothing as planned or sophisticated as that I'm afraid.
I took this outside my studio in Colombia in the mountains
very early in the morning with a lot of mist in the air.
It was one of those fortunate mistakes because I was actually
shooting in color at very low aperture and I remember there was
a slight movement of the camera, enough to give those
lines and slight blur but not enough to lose definition on
the plant leaves. RC (Above is also a sort of intentional
mistake) - a night shot - at low light, the shutter stays open
for enough time to move the camera around and get the traces of
a stationary light source. I got the idea from some photos Picasso did,
with the same time-exposure technique in which he used a flashlight
and drew a form or figure in the air and the camera exposure
gave a complete copy of his gestures.

The smaller pattern looks like chain or rope but
the larger pattern suggests a rib cage, thats cool.

Fascinating interpretations. Center background, I see a Cubist pencil drawing of a woman nude - from breasts to hips with arms folded. Vulnerability, a capturing of sorts in this jungle. Have a great interest in B&W Experimental Photography. Love the haunt of it. This was one happy accident.

Brilliant, as ever, R. Since I've been following the National Geographic series: GENIUS: PICASSO, I suppose he developed this time exposure technique later in life. Years ago, never knew he was a representational artist till I saw his sketches at the Met. Now, to this....intriguing.
