Romanticism, and art form in the 19th century, was a beautiful time in which art and literature reflected more than the literal work in front. Yet, it did not create extreme fantastical works. When we say Romantic, we think of someone who is full of selfless love and grandeur in their acts of love, but when we speak of Romantic in the form of art we are speaking of feeling in general. Nature, a break from the normal tradition, and, most importantly, feeling are the norms in the Romantic Era.
Here I explore modern Romanticism. Pure nature, pure feeling, and a reflection of the color schemes and themes in photography.
A Mobile Lodge aspiring to give you the sense of relaxation and a home to rest after working hard for years. A Lodge, but really just a trailer park. To distance themselves from the images immediately associated with the phrase "trailer park," this place has renamed itself the Mobile Lodge and has included in its grounds a plant that is not native to this area. Palms are associated with vacations and exotic locations. Implanting these in the trailer home was an attempt by this park to move away from this image and bring forth the associations with Palm Trees, but... we have eyes that see everything as it really is. Nothing has been altered in this series. Everything shown is exactly as was on the days shot.
Side Note: Washingtonia Filifera is the only palm tree native to the Western United States and it is only native near San Diego, Tijuana, and borders of Arizona. The Los Angeles/Orange County area's palm trees are all implanted by engineers. Trailer Park. In Orange County.
Continuing to explore whatever is haunted... this is a trip to the Witch Forest.
