Re: Together

This image is creepy. Much more creepy than any other of my photos. Well, you can still enjoy its colorite, the misty atmosphere, consider it just a good joke or appreciate the idea of mirror symmetry. However, when I look it longer, I got shievers. And I am afraid, this happened to many of you too. Or at least you felt uneasyness and disturbance. The creepiest things are not the most horrible-looking ones. At first glance the creepiest things look quite normal and ordinary. And then suddenly you realize, that something is basically and inevitably wrong. I am not speaking about possible homosexual allures (who cares nowadays!) but let’s start with the costumes. When people wear similar things, we call it a fashion. They wear these things on their own free will and this imposes no obligations on them. When people wear exactly similar things, we call it uniform(s) and this is something completely different. Uniform warns us immediately, that beside (and above) usual personal human relations we may have with such a person, he/she has obligations to obey rules strange and maybe unknown to us. What do you think are the goals an order is pursuing, whose members are wearing such uniforms? Imagine you start to see such people more and more frequently in your usual environment and there is no explanation to what this could mean. And going deeper – at first glance you may even have an impression that there still are some differences beside the mirror symmetry. A more careful look shows that there is none. OK, this is just an image processing. Try now to imagine, that you see this in reality. Then what?
