Abracadabra

What shows up instantly but takes years to develop?

In 2009 I decided that finding a white rabbit unexpectedly meant something special. Over the years found on-the-fly examples of illusions and magic were photographed in diverse locations including New York City, Amsterdam and Drenthe in the Netherlands, San Francisco, Orlando, Miami, St. Francisville and Slidell in Louisiana. I came to realize that unspoken thoughts can double as incantation because lo and behold, my wishes came true like a trick. These photographic talismans are meant to ward off misfortune, harm, or illness to creator and viewer.

Say: "abracadabra" aloud or to yourself.  What are you hoping to find?
