Before I started this blog, I had never taken pictures with the intention of sharing them beyond my little sphere of folks - immediate family, suckered-in friends and the like. You've all helped me shift my perspective a bit: very personal photography can now be easily shared via this medium. Let the games begin.
Today's mystery photo comes to us courtesy of yet another long, extremely close-up exposure. I did not have the luxury of natural light for this one. It was at night, and for some reason I had no time the next day to shoot. So I figured it was incandescent light or nothing at all. That explains the sepia cast to the picture. I never have much control over what different bulbs will do to my subjects. Long exposures tend to add even more mystery to the final result. It's great fun - if you're OK with non-instant gratification.
So, you know the drill:
- What the heck is this?
- What is it not?
- What was I thinking when I snapped it?
- What are you thinking as you look at How does it make you feel?
