Famous Philosopher, Skeptic, Explorer Quote #0380

Timothy Leary

“Admit it. You aren’t like them. You’re not even close. You may occasionally dress yourself up as one of them, watch the same mindless television shows as they do, maybe even eat the same fast food sometimes. But it seems that the more you try to fit in, the more you feel like an outsider, watching the “normal people” as they go about their automatic existences.”

Timothy Leary

President Richard Nixon once described Leary as “the most dangerous man in America”……

……“turn on, tune in, drop out”.

An extraordinary act in a very normal setting…aided by an iPhone in panorama mode quickly shut down during the process.

I’ve met elders in native cultures who attest to the fact that shape-shifting is not just an exercise in creative visualization – it’s an actual metamorphosis. There’s reason to believe that they’re right. In Western thinking, we believe that the reality we normally experience is the only reality. However, there are a multitude of equally real, equally viable realities surrounding us. The fact that we don’t see them doesn’t mean that they’re not real.

This was a portfolio shot made in the studio at the first location of fotografia-LA in Studio City. Shay was a consummate professional actress and model. With very little guidance from me, we always got the shot and had a lot of fun doing it.

This was my first visit to Mono Lake and my first capture of a tufa rock formation. I have wanted to do this for a long time, and it was now or never because the lake doesn’t have much water left. Most of the tufa is now on dry land.
