Nice shot. However it doesn't seem surreal. At least to me.

Cool Concept and definatly wierd looking. I would've wished for better lighting on this. The black background sort of drags on on the left side, but definatly something wierd going on, quite surreal. 7

"...............Ave Maria, gratia plena, Dominus tecum.
Benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus fructus ventris tui, Iesus.
Sancta Maria, Mater Dei,
ora pro nobis peccatoribus, nunc,
et in hora mortis nostrae.
On the road ahead.............ah my sweet God!"

Sorry, but I hate the border! The image is quite surreal, but maybe a bit too surreal.

I don't get it, so it must be surreal. Hospitality? Or lack of it? (Pineapple) Driven from your home, or the State of Carolina? Or just objects you had sitting around, I am trying to read too much into it? Anyway, I like the photograph, the colors and composition. Great focus also. It is the photo I looked at the longest in this challenge so far, give you an 8.
