Being “under the weather” on a weekend sucks, doesn’t it?
I had plans for today – shopping, maybe a little outside photography (despite the cold weather). But I’m just not up to it today. Perhaps I did too much that last couple of days, who knows?
In any event, my photography was limited to inside my own house. Flickr’s theme of the week is “Flames” – thus, the photo at the top of this post. Not what I intended to do – I had ambitiously thought I would put together something with ice cream and a candle (Fire and Ice[Cream)]), but didn’t know where my nice glass bowl is, didn’t have a white votive candle, and saw when I went onto Flickr that someone else had already beat me to a very similar shot, although they used snow instead of ice cream. I think my idea is better.
Since I was fooling around with the editing software, I decided to see what black-and-white would do for the photo. I think it came out quite well:
Kind of looks like the moon behind the flame in both photos, doesn’t it? I’m not telling how I got that in there (mostly because I don’t know myself).
If anyone with more imagination than me wishes to use either photo as the basis for a story, feel free. Just link back here so I get that special feeling we all enjoy.
Happy Sunday, Everyone.
