  4. Unfocused and not by accident. This is talent. And these are beautiful. My shot was, by contrast, completely unintended and the result of my fairly basic cell phone: http://designhouse9.wordpress.com/2012/05/04/then-again-by-diane-keaton/ I guess it’s a good thing I didn’t have my usual camera. 🙂

    Interesting. It’s like a ghost.

  15. I love the ethereal nature of these pictures … it feels like I’m glimpsing a moment from long ago. Well done!

  16. First impression: otherworlldly. If you hadn’t described the scene, I would have continued to think: scene from Star Wars. Cool!

    Hya Stephen – seeing as there hasn’t been an official weekly photo challenge this week, I’m stepping up and throwing down a challenge for anyone who’s interested. http://wheresmybackpack.wordpress.com/2012/05/12/reflections/
    I’d love you to join in – the more the merrier. Pass it on. xxx

    • Hi … and thanks for the invite to your photo challenge. I’m travelling right now, and I have spottu access to the Internet and my photo archives. I have some excellent shots that reflect the Reflections theme, so I’ll be sure to post an entry when I get home on Wednesday.
