Macro dreams

I’ve always been one to have vivid and long lasting dreams.  It seems my mind really works itself out while the rest of me rests.  Lately, my dreams have greatly intensified. The world I inhabit in my head while sleeping is one of dizzying color, intoxicating figures, and intense feelings.  It’s as if I am living inside a lens stuck on macro.  How do you dream?

Cutting light.

  1. Great shots! I love macro.
    As far as dreams, until a couple years ago I don’t remember dreaming in color. I then started playing World of Warcraft, an online video game. Strange enough that a newly divorced mid 50’s year old woman is playing a video game but I also started dreaming in vivid color. It was amazing! I don’t play much anymore but still dream in some color. That’s my story.

  2. I also have vivid dreams. My dreams usually tell complex, interesting stories and often involve traveling. Recently I had a dream that I was abducted by leprechauns and taken to Alaska. My subconscious is endlessly fascinating. Lol.

  3. These are great (except the last one sort of looks like an alien from Star Trek). This is the type of photography my husband does. Makes for interesting looking. Nicely done.

  4. I envy you to remember of your dreams so vividly. Once in a while I dream of a sentence for a story that I am working on. Or I find the name of a character. When I wake up the dream is almost palpable but not for long. So I hurry to my computer or a piece of paper to write every detail down before they vanish. As if they had only been a dream.

  5. Wonderful photos and concept. Love macro and I am dreaming of buying a macro lens. My dreams have always been vivid, in colour and sometimes in animation lol! Sometimes I wish there was a way to capture dream images as they happen. Sweet dreams to you and thanks for sharing!

  6. Wow! I just love cutting light and hypnosis. It might be time to make another purchase. Question: Is there a type of picture to purchase so I can make sure the end product comes out as crisp and “HD” as the picture online?

  7. Love the picts. I really enjoy appreciating the detail in the small things. You can’t beat Nature for patterns and colour. As to dreams my dreams have toned down as I have gotten older .. also a 50 something now divorced woman like Deb. As a child I dreamt so vividly in colour and had so many continuous themes I thought I was living in multiple places .. I could even ‘pick up’ a dream one night to the next. I still dream in colour but rather than consistent narratives they are stand alone experiences. Perhapes I have sorted out some of the big questions and now turn my dream state gaze to the macro in tune with the awake state!

  8. I can sympathize with you on this. I routinely have vivid, intense dreams and when I can remember my dreams from the night before, chances are there are at least 3 or 4 that I remember. There have been times when I woke up remembering upwards of 10 each morning! It was exhausting but exhilarating to be privy to that part of my brain. I hope I never lose this connection with my subconscious.

      • It was a bit excessive but highly entertaining. Oddly enough, when I went to a Chinese Medicine doctor, he told me remembering dreams is due to a build up of heat in the body and after he treated me for that (this was when I was remembering 7+ dreams per night) I never had that problem again.

        I dream of a little bit of everything. I wish I knew what prompts certain kinds because I tend to go to bed in the mood of a specific kind. Some nights I want scary ones, other times romantic but most times I’m just happy to be able to remember them in the morning.

        Do you find you can manipulate your dreams to a certain extent? Do tend to remember specific kinds of dreams more than others? What about lucid dreams? Are you able to slip into a dream-like state fairly easily?
