Have you ever wondered why, even though we can go everywhere we want, we spend 90% of our time in less than 10 places? What is freedom worth when we fail to use it?
Catwalk takes us to dangerous places, high above the ground, sometimes covered with litter and not very sturdy. Catwalk requires us to be agile and fast, stealth and resilient if we fall. And we will.
But the accomplishment of freedom is rewarded with the contemplation of beauty. And for this, catwalk is not only the way but also the destination.
EDIT: So THIS is what it feels like to wake up one morning with a Daily Deviation! I usually never say wow but... Wow! Many thanks to *existentialdefiance for suggesting this photograph as a Daily Deviation and to `zerocomplex for feturing it!
Many of you have asked me where I took this photograph (in Paris from a rooftop behind the opera), with what material (Canon 40D and Canon 14mm lens) and how I worked it in postproduction (it is an HDR of 5 HDRs, created with Photomatix Pro 3.1 and then assembled with layers and masks on Photoshop CS3).
I wrote a detailed tutorial explaining all this and more, which I hope will prove useful to you. Catwalking: Making of Catwalk. Enjoy it and please don't hesitate to share with me anything it has inspired you to create, it always makes my day!
