Dreamy Landscapes on a Dreary Day

As you know, if you read my earlier post, I’m a bit hampered when it comes to writing/blogging these days. Since “upgrading” from a plaster cast to a more functional brace however, I am able to navigate with more ease and typing is at least possible. (I’ve discovered the “overdo it” point, too.) As before stated (last post), I shot some pretty neat photos (blindfolded, with one hand tied behind my back, haha, or so it felt!) and decided to share them with you. I shot this albumΒ entirely along I-80 between Chicago, IL, and Cleveland, OH, on a cold, overcast day as we were returning home to get my disabled arm tended to. Enjoy.

These shopped photos are quite a departure from what I usually produce. There is a lesson here! Sometimes an occurrence/event/experience/whatever can actually be the door that opens us to seeing, hearing, doing something delightful and life-enhancing we never would have considered before. Hope you enjoy the photos. πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you scrapydo. I wasn’t sure how folks would respond to these images, but I loved working with them. The landscape had a dreamy, other-worldly look to it as we drove home that day (of course, it could have been the meds, too) and I could not resist the urge to at least try to capture what I was seeing/imagining.. Glad you like them.

  1. beautiful clicks, and together they create such a timeless mood. except for the image with the telephone cord, all of them could just as easily have been from 100 years ago…. thanks for sharing!

    1. Thanks Kris. These were such fun images to work with albeit quite a departure from my normal niche. The photo with the cord is actually a shot taken as we passed a big rig — you are looking through the space between the cab and the rig it is hauling. I was rather proud of that one! (not that it was a great photo, but just that I “captured” the image of the farm in this manner! hahaha). Thank you for stopping by and for commenting. MUCH appreciated. πŸ™‚

  2. Sorry to hear about your accident, Cecelia. Hopefully it will heal quickly.

    Here I thought I had been following your blog all along. I popped in today to see why I wasn’t getting any notices of posts on your site. Turns out I’m not subscribed!! Well, I took care of that, right quick!

    I love your pictures. How did you get that dreamy quality (some of them look almost sepia’d)? Makes me feel dreamy too πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Sandra. I’m happy that you re-followed! I’m also glad that you liked the photos. These were truly experimental images and great fun working with. Some of them are sepia’d as I recall, but the dreaminess factor can be attributed to the fact that we were traveling down the road at a good clip (no sharp focus with any of these images!), I was “high” on pain meds, and the landscape was snow-covered. Great combination for these sorts of images. πŸ™‚ (that and some blurring of the edges!)

    1. Thank you Nancy! Yes, the arm continues to improve but it looks like I will have to keep the brace close by from here on out. The weakness and sometimes pain is probably permanent. BUT I can still function quite well. And yes, everything looks better as spring approaches. πŸ™‚ Thanks for stopping by. I hope to work back into blogging by spring. Time and healing will tell.
