GETS LIGHTNING PICTURES
Surrealist views of Heppner are
shown in two pictures of a recent
lightning storm snapped in front of
the Safeway store by John Anglin,
lical manager. The surrealism effect
is given by the lightning flashes,
car lights, etc., caught on the film in
double exposure, giving grotesque
forms to the buildings, light poles
and other objects shown in shadows.
For example, a gasoline pump caught
in the foreground has the appear
ance of a towering skyscraper, or a
series of towering skyscrapers of
like form. The forked-tongue light
ning in one view appears to have
descended to the ground on the town
side of a hill, leaving the hill lighted
in the background.
