Images Daydreams are made of

Dreams and nightmares, two very powerful forces in our lives. My advice, try and avoid the latter. : )
Turkish artist Umut Recber shows us, what waking or sleeping dreams could look like, in these photo manipulations.

With a fertile imagination, feelings of boredom are a non-issue.  I truly thing that it is one of our best qualities and one of the most underrated ones.  Imagination has many different synonyms like: inspiration, inventiveness, originality, vision, creativity, etc. They are all qualities, who's results are highly valued by our society.
That said, the spark that starts this in children "daydreaming", is discouraged and considered a bad habit that has to be lost, in order to progress to adulthood.

As any other forms of expression both physical and mental, it doesn't matter how gifted you are, without exercise you loose tone. The loss can be compared to loss of muscle tone, if we don't exercise.

You don't have to buy expensive equipment or pay for a monthly subscription.  Don't worry, you don't have to travel for this; I will bring it right to you in this post.

Imagine a story around each picture, tell yourself a tale about it.  It can also be done with movies and books. Expand what the director or the writer gives you, by enriching the plot with your own thoughts.  That might be extra scenery, characters, even yourself, inserted into the story...

All you really need is some quiet time; turn down the volume of your daily life, actually, put it on mute. Allow your mind to wonder, give yourself a starting point, a subject, an image and let it to germinate and grow.

Like with all things new, there might be a learning curve; be patient and give yourself the space and time, to develop the incredible untapped resource, that is your mind.

I promise, you will thank yourself for doing it. Once you have achieved control over it, the applications are endless...

Ps. I gave the images some titles.
