Bit like my bath shot Karen 😉
Yes Helen, just not as sexy! 😉
Thought I’d switch things up a bit!
Those first two are so eerie! There’s always something disorienting about fog – and it’s even more unsettling when it’s indoors even if ‘only’ through a lens. The lights and muted colours in the others are really pretty though 🙂
Very interesting! I find the fifth image particularly captivating: the colors, lines, tones all make for a wonderful and intriguing composition.
That’s neat. It’s like being in a haze.
The third image is very haunting, beautiful colours coming through though.
I love this series Karen, beautifully done. I’m curious whether you were doing this shoot and the lens fogged but you decided to continue on, or whether you were shooting elsewhere and noticing the fog opted to experiment with it here.
Hi Noel, I was actually doing an architectural shoot of a museum outside, it was cold enough that when I came inside the lens completely fogged up so I just played around with it in the spaces.
I picture you, mouth open, camera cupped in your palms like a small bird you are trying to resuscitate. Love the effect.
Fascinating shots! It looks a little like they are taken underwater – looming up out of the deep.
Love that top shot ~ like a scene from a movie. I agree with brushytophouse – it’s like a dream sequence!
Love them Karen!!!! stunning!!! 🙂 **
Dream time… these remind me of being at the pool. A little bit cold, a little bit scary.
liked the effect!
Stunning idea, it is all about light when you allow such abject clarity.. awesome. c
beautiful and dreamy
How amazing! superb idea that makes really dreamy photos.
Wow, I love evey shot!
These are neat. Interesting atmosphere.
Very dream like photos well done!
Thank you Arkturo. 🙂
This is quite magical!!
Just catching up with your photos from the past week, love them all, but these are really cool for your having thought to take them with the fogged up lens in the first place!
I had this additional thought as I was scanning through your always stunning photos: You are so thoroughly documenting winter that I’m now having a hard time imagining coming to your blog and finding anything with color or without snow and ice and hibernating or dead flora.
I know that sounds like a thinly veiled criticism, but it’s not meant that way at all!
It will be cool to watch color slowly seep back into your blog as spring and summer arrive. 🙂
Intriguing sequence and creative use of of a foggy lens.
Most interesting photos. Once again creating something wonderful. 😀
Especially fascinated by the one labeled interior2. It looks like a flight of stairs.
Thanks, it’s kinda fun!
What an amazing improvisational flight. That shot of the staircase is ethereal.
These are just lovely.
These are magical and beautiful !!
Thank you very much, Akanedou.
