R is for Reading by Nilanja R is for Reading by Nilanja
words carry you into another reality. you are caught by letters, remaining in this other world which is full of everything. you can not get enough of it, you want to stay there forever. but at some point you have to come back, at the latest when every word has been consumed by you and the book has ended.

I really love reading and wanted to capture the world you are in and built up while you read.
The editing turned out to be more complicated than I thought...and still I am a bit unsure if I achieved what I wanted.

hope you like it :reading:

I love to see the tower-book again in a concept like this. This was the picture I was thinking about when I first saw the tower-book, so I think it's cool that you actually visualized the concept in the way that you have done in this picture.

I like the colors alot. I always write about the colors because it's such an important thing, and in this picture I think you did it perfectly. The deep red, white and the brown/yellow-tones are beautiful and it fits perfectly to the idea. It looks very clean, and very book-ish, which is a feeling I enjoy.
What do you think?

it is awesome.

it is like the tower is the thing you see when you read, but to others it might just be pages with written words. to you it is like castles, princes and princess, like a view into their world. it is like your own secret world made of the words from the book. I just love the photo >_<"!!! don't what more to say

This is awesome! I like how it's like a world inside of a book. The smile is just perfect, and any other expression would ruin it.

Nice capture. You should create a collage with A - Z when you're done with your project :)

only the pictures or with the letters too?

torivarn Featured By Owner Oct 27, 2012  Hobbyist Photographer
yeah, I'm thinking if you make like a A to Z collage with those images you've done in this alphabeth-project of yours. So you'll line the up alphabethically from A to Z in thumbnails :)
