52Frames Catch-Up

Well, look at that, I forgot to post a bunch of 52Frames here! But, my streak is not broken 😉

2022-33 – Night Photography

Overexposed moon appearing behind a building. The moon seems to throw straight rays in all directions.

For “Night Photography”, we had had been having a full moon that week and, while I missed that one, I had noticed it was showing around the building in front of my balcony. So, later that week, I set up my tripod, and I waited for the moon to show. It eventually did – although later than what I was expecting – and, since I was already set up, I managed to snap a few pictures juuuuust before it showed behind that building, and then when it started illuminating the sky for real. I liked this one best of all the ones I took, because I like the “moonburst” effect – which I wouldn’t have had with a better exposed moon! (Which I also got, a few minutes later, when I was less concerned about the foreground context 🙂 – here it is!

2022-35 – Water

A black&white photography of a rainy night, as seen from the top of a building.

At the beginning of that week, we had some long-awaited rain. I took a few pictures, thinking “this will at least be a backup shot” and, look at that – it stayed a backup shot (and one I almost forgot to submit on top of that!).
I went for a “noir” B&W post-processing which I thought worked well with the car lighting the raindrops at the bottom.

2022-35 – Peace

Landscape picture. The foreground is green grass; then there's a mountain with a small cable car and sun rays filtering through trees; the background shows the side of a lake ans more mountains in the distance.

We were on holidays last week in Stoos, Switzerland – beautiful place, which also happens to be car-free: the cable car that’s visible on the image is one of the two ways to get up to the village (there’s also a fancy funicular on the other side of the village).
It’s a very serene place, and I thought it would work well for last week’s theme. And, due to holidays: shot and processed on my phone (I also had a camera, but no proper editing computer). There may or may not be more pictures incoming…. as soon as I finish processing them 😉

52Frames – 2021-04 – Water

The theme for 52Frames this week was “Water”. I made some vegetable broth yesterday, and the combination of a very full pot and a glass lid ended up being quite fascinating… and allowing for shots of boiling water without lens fog 🙂 I took a fair amount of them, and ended up liking the abstract of this one most – so that’s what I submitted for the challenge 🙂

(The broth ended in broccoli soup which was delicious 🙂 )
