          Interesting Elin, thanks. That’s important feedback because I was trying for a slightly creepier, mysterious feel – more like “what happened to all the kids?”. I’ll have to keep working on that.

      In contrast to Bobbie’s playground shot:

        As usual (so to say) wonderful flower.

        But the second picture is outstanding, too. Creates the mood by itself.

              I think Leanne is referring to In Camera Motion in her post.

              Intentional Camera Movement (as opposed to the unintentional kind that occurs before that first cup of coffee in the morning! ;))

              A longer shutter speed and sweep of the camera horizontally in this case, Andre.

      No special story here. I saw these souvenir water bottles lined up in the morning light and was drawn to the translucent colors and the grading – “bookend” red tone with pale aqua in the middle. Late to the party… very late…
