I’m going to kill two birds with one stone here this week by posting photos for both challenges. The first two will be strictly for the Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge of Foreign. This came up at a perfect time, as I had just started scanning in the film photos I took when I visited friends in Poland way back in 1992, so when I saw this, I did “ahha!”
You probably are wondering what’s foreign about a picture of Lily going down the steps outside the morning room, aren’t you? Except this is not Lily, this is a cat foreign to our yard. Not completely unknown, as it’s either Lily’s mother or father, but still it does not live in this yard.
And now, two more photos for both “foreign” and “spooky” I think.
The moon is certainly a foreign planet, and I think this particular moon, with a bit of cloud cover over it, is also a spooky moon. I was trying to capture the ring around the moon that night, with little success. So much to learn about these manual camera settings.
I think this is spooky, a bit like the blob losing bits and pieces of itself. Oh – I’ve dated myself, haven’t I? Making reference to that very old movie, “The Blob”. One I’d really rather forget about.
Both of the last two were taken at our pond – the first, the fountain; the second, the waterfall with surrounding rock and juniper shrubs. Both with me once again playing with manual settings, and in the case of the second, a little bit of the posterize filter applied. Like I said, much to learn about those manual settings.
There you have it! My attempts at foreign and spooky.
