Dr. McCoy in a Strange New Land

Wow!!!! I love it so much! Magical!
As the internet says in 2018: BIG MOOD

I love the way the shadow cuts across his face --- he is looking at something big! A planet? He looks like he is processing something. This set up looks similar to the scene from the Matrix where Neo sits in a reclining chair in a bluish room with blue cords. That's where he consciously re-enters the simulation, I think.

"A second scene
Now fights between the blue you once knew
Floating down, the sound resounds
Around the icy waters underground
Jupiter and Saturn, Oberon, Miranda and Titania
Neptune, Titan, stars can frighten"

from the song "Astronomy Domine" by Pink Floyd

Thanks, Marz!
I'm glad to hear it set a BIG MOOD--and raised a question (what's he looking at?)--that's what I was hoping. It's hard for me to tell if I expressed something or if I'm projecting, so I really appreciate the feedback.

It's interesting to work with toys--you have to depend on light, posture, etc. instead of changing facial expressions---though the toys' faces DO change depending on angle (&, again, Light).

Light, light, light---it's all about light.

(I just wish I had a little mint julep glass for him to hold in his left hand. :)

The Pink Floyd lyrics are perfect!

I'd looked up Roy Orbison's "In a Blue Mood" but that didn't fit (break up song).

P.S. Now I've listened to "Astronomy Domine" (how had I never heard this?!?)
now I want to make some photos with "lime and limpid green" light...
