I was hoping to come back from New York armed with new material but unfortunately, having fallen there and broken my shoulder I have only a few shots on my iPhone.
I am still getting used to the pain, being extremely limited in my movements and relaxing, I am always busy, so doing nothing is difficult for me.
I cant sit for long at the computer, but hoping I can process some photos from Seville, and Zurich from earlier this year, next week .
For now my last addition to the theme.
A street scene from Mrauk U in northern Burma, one of my favourite places. The morning light is diffused by the mist and the smoke of the fires making mohinga, the breakfast staple food. One person makes a whole pot and serves it to the villagers.
The light is soft, the colours are soft, the birds can clearly be heard in the trees, people are still sleepy. The softness of the morning before the day begins.
Lovely daily life scene in the soft morning light. I love how two of the figures are picking up the limited brightness. The stupa in the background looks huge, and of course typical for the area.
Creative interpretation of the theme.
Get well soon! 🤕
No way, I am so sorry to hear about your accident. I am always running around too so it is maybe as difficult as to endure the pain just sitting still for a while. Yes definitely disappointing to return with no images from NYC but you're back and this is the main thing.
I absolutely love fog and what it makes to images. It even irones out the uglyness of places, what looks not nice in the daytime sort of makes it less miserable with a little fog in the morning, hiding everything under it, we can look away without feeling guilty, sort of. Or it makes a lovely spot even more romantic etc. etc. I lke this image a lot, it is a soft wake-up, people start to move, maybe going to the Pagoda for a smal prayer.
I am on digital detox for some weeks during the summer, I have a contract with myself :-) but I think here and there a little comment won't hurt or a small upload ... Lulll ...
This is gorgeous Elaine. It looks like a painting by Turner. Life in the countryside. Beautifully composed and I especially like the pagoda in the BG. My wife just peeked over my shoulder and said the same thing about it looking like a painting. Hope your shoulder heals soon.
You have here a really beautifull picture. The light on woman with white clothing is absolutely stunning. Same for the softer light on the roof opposite to the woman.
A picture looking like a painting in light management and textures.
A new fave for me.
Take care of you ...
What a great example of softness, starting with the soft light on the stupa. The thought of one person cooking for the whole village delights me with the gentle attitude that leads to shared cooking duties for the whole village. It does exceed your lovely rose in the soft feeling it generates in me.
I always found periods of icing most effective for pain, but I'm sure you know this. My son even keeps very large soft ice bag in my freezer which I use freely when he is not here. I had some tendency to feet betrayed when it didn't do what I wanted it to do, sadly those days are past. Now I cheer when it exceeds my expectations GLF, Patricia
It's like a dutch painting due to the colors, the light on the white shirt and the whole scene. We walk along the path, meet some early dwellers and climb the hill to reach the pagoda in the mist.
I'm so sorry to hear about your accident. I have still in good memory my accident last year, when I broke my upper arm (humerus) and was very limited in many activities. Also the pains were nasty specially at nights. I hope your shoulder heals well and soon.
This is a lovely photo with beautiful soft morning light and its atmosphere is gorgeous. I agree with others who mention that this resembles a painting.
A very atmospheric photo - like a painting of an old master. I like it very much! The temple towering the scenery in the haze adds a somehow mystic detail here. For me this is photography at its best ... A photo to be proud of!
Greetings from again cooler Westphalia! Have a nice weekend!
