What shows up instantly but takes years to develop?

Found on the fly compositions of illusions, tricks and magic yielded precious few photographs over many years in this un-set up portfolio. Uncovered 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. These talismans are meant to ward off misfortune, harm, or illness to creator and viewer, including those naysayers who may view such phenomena as gibberish.

Say: "abracadabra" aloud or to yourself.
