Drops & dropping.

Fireweed ghosts

Dropping leaf


Dew-drop necklace


Disbelief*

*The leaves weren't really dropping, at least not continuously. They were dangling on filaments of spider silk.

I appreciate the explanation on the "dropping" leaves. Though now I'm a little disappointed. C'est la vie.

You had me. I was wondering how many tries that must have taken.

Hugh said...

Yes, Mr. S. and Cedrorum,

It was a dilemma. Do I pass myself off as a much cleverer photographer than I am and live with that guilt, or do I fess up and let the truth kill the magic?

Aunt Debbi/kurts mom said...

Hey, you cheated. Wish I'd thought of it:)

Hugh said...

Yes, Aunt D, I cheated, and am ashamed. But I did have to wait for the wind to stop blowing for a few seconds, so it wasn't as easy as taking a picture of a fire hydrant or a cactus, or lots of other stationary things.

these are very poetic images, and nice words to accompany them, too.

(thank you ever so much for your words on my crunch.)

I am mesmerized by the fireweed picture! It's so glowy and mystical looking. Beautiful!

Hugh said...

Thank you, kompoStella. I hope things are looking up.

Thanks, Amy. I was trying to get that effect with as little of the houses in the background as possible. It was a misty morning with interesting light.
