Steampunk on Sunday: The Scream.

So, I took some photos
of the Steampunk Study
as it's almost complete 
and I wanted to show
the nice, new cuckoo clock.

Here are the photos.





I didn't add anything.
There is no Photoshopping.


Eat your heart out,
Everard Munch

    1. Well, thank you! I'm still hoping to take some nice pictures, if creepy photo will allow me. It's just one of those Halloween lenticular portraits which changes as you move. I just wasn't expecting it to come out so clearly in two identical photographs!

    1. Heh, thank you! The study is almost, nearly, just-about done. Once last bookcase to fill. The halloween portrait? I'm so glad I went with that and put it in a proper frame. Didn't know the effect would show up in a photo, though!

  3. The portrait reminds me of the makeup of Martyn Jaques, the lead singer of The Tiger Lilies, who often impersonated a deranged clown on stage during his shows. A far more distressing painting by Munch would be The Sick Child. I liked The Scream, but it has become way too pop culture, especially since the advent of the internet.

    The wallpaper is quite appropriate and I can still hear Oscar Wilde saying, “This wallpaper and I are fighting a duel to the death. Either it goes or I do.” It was his dying breath. Overall an excellent effect.

    1. Oh, yes. The Tiger Lillies! Loved the music they did for Plunkett and Macleane. As for Mr Munch, apart from sounding like a breakfast cereal, the Scream does suffer from overpopularity. The power is in the impact, the first time you ever see it as a kid. That and the paradox; is it someone screaming, or someone hearing a scream? I'm a fan of his vampires.

      Oh! And thank you for noticing the Ugly Wallpaper. It turned up at a dollar store and they had only the three rolls. For the money, it's perfect. Ghastly colours, a vague hint of hand blocking and an intense repeated pattern, like a fever. Just like Mr Wilde said!

    1. Thank you so much, Oh Magic Love Crow! The reason you can't see your paintings here is because I stole them back, to put in my studio!

    1. Thank you! It's a lovely room, but really, really hard to capture in a photograph. These shots don't do it either, but they do have the benefit of some 'paranormal activity'.
