Some people have wondered how the images could be real since I state that I do not create them in Photoshop.
 Below are examples to help see how they came to be.

The original scene for "Carnival of Gloom."

Above: As the image was taken (upside down) *The final image below.

Below is the original scene of "CONCRETE LIGHTNING"
 as featured
in "National Geographic".

Below:  "CONCRETE LIGHTNING"

 The mushroom image below was created by laying on the  bricks about two feet
                   from the left side of the mushroom store front image.
I then waited for a stranger to walk by  behind me

The image below was shot this morning after the rain. It is a reflection in a puddle shot upside down. The tornado/invader funnel (lower left) was actually a rock that I threw up in the air with my left hand and you are seeing the moment of impact into the water (upside down) JD 11/21/16
Below: Here you see the original scene with the rock splashing into the puddle
A more fully-realized version below.

The images below were created using only "in camera movement" and available lighting.
This is not a Photoshop creation.

 These were Halloween masks hanging on a store shelf.
The movement brought it to life!

The image of the little girl was from a toy box in a Halloween store.
The extreme camera movement and available lighting created this other-worldy effect.

The reflection image of the eel below was taken at the Worldwildlife Zoo Aquarium.
There was a class going on and the students were listening to the instructor.
 They were unaware that I was focusing on them!

*That's why no one was looking at me. They had no idea I wasn't focusing on the eels.

Above is the original scene. Below is the resultant image. All done "in-camera".
