Though I have yet to find a photo by the Parkeharrison that I don't like, I picked out this image for its relative plausibility. Most of their images are far too elaborate for me to even hope to try something similar. However, the simplicity of this one is what draws me in. Though it is still surreal and maintains the story like quality of their other work, it is achieved through simple props and some motion-blur. the still bird with feathers circling the child's arm are the focus of the picture, but the antlers and moving man mimic the situation, as does the trailing bit of vine or root in the top left corner. The making of this picture could have been as simple as a slow shutter-speed, cloudy day, a fake bird and two actors.
