Weekly Photo Challenge: Delicate


This is part of my experiment which I got inspired from here, Early Christmas by Sue Richardson.

I’ve tried many different shots outdoor and indoor following her technique and so far this is the best that I could get from.

Could you guess what they are? :D.

Axis Mundi

Axis Mundi

They are some tealights that I arranged in circular form. I did some editing in Picassa from its RAW file by increasing its shadow and applied filtered BW plus soft focus. The grainy that looks apparent in this photo after I increased its shadow has created such a different dimension from the original objects. It looks like white sand or snowflakes fall down and creating snowballs. That’s my interpretation anyway. A friend of mine called this picture as Axis Mundi.

So for that reason I submit this picture for Weekly Photo Challenge with Delicate in theme!

Have a Good Friday and have a great weekend ahead to everybody! Christmas is just round the corner! 😉


When Cooking Oil Met Water


When cooking oil met water in photography then they could create an art work.

On my previous post here, Dirty but Beautiful, I shot some pictures of canal water that been contaminated by some oil from the canal boats I supposed. The sunny bright weather had created a good art work by reflecting the shadow of the trees and other surroundings onto the water.

Those photos have inspired me to try a photo experiment called Cooking Oil Close-up Photography by Bryan Peterson.

Here my results:
