Incidental Exposures

The days seem intermediary. Frosted only at the edges. The autumn colours have faded – to sepia – to grey – to misty blues.

But for some reason these are colours I can sink into. Literally.

There have been a few times when I thought my boots might be lodged permanently in the clay bottom of the creek. But so far I’ve managed each time to wrestle myself out on to solid ground. When your mind is absorbed in one thing, you may not notice that your feet are being absorbed by another…

Each of these images is an in-camera double exposure. Layers of light and shadow on a rippling surface.

  1. “When your mind is absorbed in one thing, you may not notice that your feet are being absorbed by another…”

    This made me smile πŸ™‚

    And I really liked #5

  2. The steely, creamy tones perfectly match the marbled reflections.

    And i remember leaving a pair of rubber boots buried in about two feet of mud when i was a little kid. Couldn’t get them out and had to go home barefoot.

  3. Very nice, and worth the risk of losing a boot, or two. I think I like the last one the best, with the lighter tones at the bottom, rather unexpectedly

  4. I can’t tell you how much I’m looking forward to seeing your winter unfold in your work again! But be careful in the mud! πŸ˜‰
