Smoke, fog, and steam


Enchantment by Mandy

“This photo was taken at the Washington Park Arboretum in Seattle. It’s a beautiful place to wander, especially on a rainy day like today. I asked my friend Marika to venture with me and pose for an enchanting photo. Magical isn’t it? Actually, it’s just some dry ice that I got for a surprisingly cheap price at the local QFC (that’s the grocery store here for all you folks who don’t live in Washington). Brings me back to my sixth birthday when my parents got me an ice cream cake with dry ice. I’ve always really loved the effect.” –M

Smoke and Mirrors

Smoke and Mirrors by Brent

It looks like this is another week where I got my ass kicked. This subject was a lot harder than I thought it would be! I had a great idea to do a double exposure combining smoke stacks and a foresty scene, but, much to my surprise, there are no smoke stacks anywhere near Seattle. I guess that’s a good thing. The industrial age ended and took my photo idea along with it. So, I bring you instead a photo that perhaps isn’t worth a thousand words, but at least has a play on words. Too bad the internet doesn’t have scratch-and-sniff: the incense smelled great.

Mandy’s subject for next week:

♪ Music. Sounds good.
