End of Times – Mayhem

Today is a rare day, I could see the sun. It gives me a sense of hope. An idea that spells that there could still be a future. It gives me a will to scavenge and search for food and ……. to search for her, my love!

But the sun also shined with chaos and destruction. According to my calculations, the number of people immune to this gas attack is close to 1.2 million …. all over the world, most of them probably in China, just based on population. That does not include those that were prepared to survive it with gas masks and/or oxygen. Neither does it include those damn political figures, who might be safe in some bunker somewhere. What makes their life more precious than mine? Nothing! But they are still in a secure place … damn them!

Taking all that into account, today I discovered a group of survivors, not more than 4 or 5. They were still burning and wrecking whatever they saw fit. Loud and obnoxious, with not a care in the world (who would at this point). They acted like a pack; did not seem human anymore, but like a group of savages. I can't trust them, I don't want to! I must not let them see me, find me. They won't accept me, they would kill me!

I should avoid them, but they are in my way…. on my path to my destiny… in my way to find her. I could also use some new air filters for my mask. Should I ask nicely? No way!! It's them or me. I had never being in this position before……. I have made a choice…. there is only one way. And…….

I will not be killed!

    +Lon W. That is a very interesting question. It first in my head, just started as a series of gas mask photos…. then I decided one day to start creating composites. Where would you use gas masks? I thought to myself. In a destructed, devastated area, I answered. So I decided to go that route.

    While creating the composites and working on the photos I thought: Posting the images once a week should be cool… but after the first couple posts, why would people stay engaged? Although every image is different, they are still the same concept, they are still an image…. Attention span for a user watching an image is just a couple seconds….. after a couple gas masks photos every week, it will just become another post. Why would the users want to see more, interact or wait for another one? That's when I decided to maybe tie a short story to each image… and later on I decided (much more difficult) to tie an ongoing story with every image…. and that's how it all came together.

    I still dont even know what will happen next week! 🙂 But I am thinking about it…. sometimes your comments play a part in the story! 🙂

    Does that answer your question?
