HALLUCINATIONS ON THE BEACH Nº 05

I was wrong. When I had the idea of this series, I thought my hallucinations were going to be weird imaginations, or freaky stuff...or just an impossible wish coming true thanks to a digital collage.
But this week was different: every time I looked at the sea, I saw a huge, threatening mountain. Actually, my inner eye saw a huge mountain almost all day long and way into the night.

When the airplane in Malaysia disappeared, I felt very sorry for the people involved.
But the fact that a plane crashed into the Alps on its way from Barcelona (my home) to Düsseldorf (where I grew up), affected me deeply.
Obviously, my first thought was that a member of my family or myself could have been on the plane, a close friend or a not so close friend. That is not the case. But, people I personally know lost their husband, young girls their father. I feel downhearted.

I dedicate this image to every person who lost his life in this tragic accident and to the ones that stayed behind.
