A few folds, some snips of the scissors, and finally some glue. Voila! A paper sheet transforms into a whimsical spinner that hypnotically twirls with the slightest breeze.
Unanticipated movement while pressing the shutter? Camera settings goof-up? Accidental click? I have no idea what I tried to click here and what formed the trail in the image. All I can say is that I just can’t bring myself to delete this picture because it’s so unusual! ‘Whoosh!’ is what I hear when I see this. 🙂
I’ve played around with shutter speed and exposure since, but I don’t think I’ve recreated something like this.
Clicked on an evening in Las Vegas.
Never-ceasing kisses from the sea….
I came across these folks at Disneyland — moving in tune with one another, perfectly in sync, producing deep, booming music..
To me, movement captured in photographs is not usually synonymous with peace. But this one that I clicked at Shivanasamudra falls — though it is of running, flowing water — manages to convey that feeling. The overhanging trees and the steady rocks surrounding it are probably the reason. Nature is indeed tricksy! 😉
And that’s why I decided to set a 5:3 aspect ratio for the photograph — to add equal importance to the surroundings of the waterfall as well.
How many times do we actually think about the science behind everyday (or even unusual) occurrences? Not many, I admit. Only when today’s daily prompt came up did I recall what refraction is. 😀 At first, I thought of the feeble rainbow that I captured today on my phone at my workplace. (It felt so nice to see one that the population of the entire floor was at the window, clicking away. 🙂 ) Then I thought I’d go through my stash anyway. Good that I did, because I came across this capture of beautiful, constantly changing play of water and light, as well as the illusion of the undulating rocks underneath. All caused by refraction, of course.
Now I can’t stop myself from thinking about scientific terms!
