Skull Hovering Over Paddy Field in Vietnam

Skull hovering over paddy field in Vietnam, surreal art by Joseph Westrupp.

Title: Interloping, Vietnam. Fairly poetic title on this one. The word interloping makes the skull’s presence sinister and intrusive. Although, perhaps that went without saying anyway. Regardless, I like the phrase.

This continues the theme of skull surrealism, and hopefully levity. Though this particular image might not be as light and jaunty as others, owing to the muted colors and the atmosphere. But it still elicited a smile from some people.

The base scene was shot in Ninh Binh, Vietnam. Amazing place, full of paddy fields and reflecting a different way of life. The landscape was unique, which always makes a place memorable. When you’re traveling, the more different and exotic settings you find yourself in, the better.
