Serendipity

It’s back to the abstracts! I’m so in love with these… I had a macro-photography brainstorm, and suddenly I seemed to have plunged straight into the kind of world I so love to read about – taking shots I’ve been trying unsuccessfully to capture for years… And here they were, almost without my consciously trying to catch them!

I’m afraid that’s the thing though… Afraid, because I don’t know if I can get there again because I’ll be trying too hard next time.

But let’s not worry about that now! For now, I hope you might share some of the magic of what I found the other day…

(These really need to be viewed in full size and one by one. Just saying…)

New beginnings…

And so it’s been a long time again… My former blog was called “The intermittent blog” – a name I sometimes feel I should have kept… 🙂

But I digress.

I haven’t been idle, I’ve just not found the time for blogging – though some shots have appeared on Facebook, and quite a few perhaps more mundane things have been posted via Instagram  – @hagafotografen – (lovely, fast publishing tool…).

And some ideas, one in particular, has been slowly simmering away in the privacy of my brain – and camera. Now, however, I’ve committed to pursuing it a little more officially, and hence – return to the blogosphere!

Actually, I’m not going to talk all about it. I’m just going to post a couple of shots that represent, in a way, my first efforts in a for me unusually long and long-termed photoart project… And so, the nervous question that at some time or other must enter every budding artist’s public communication… do you like?

Light therapy

The year has turned and the days are getting longer again. As if to emphasize this, last night provided plenty of snow and today offered sunshine from a cloudless sky, making a photo-walk in the fields an exquisitely light experience.

The bird in the treetop is a parrot crossbill – a new acquaintance for me!

Pond life

Now, tell me, what’s the first word that springs to mind when you see this?

Seriously, the first word… *before* you started to analyse the picture and worry about what I was asking for? Please put your honest reply in the comment section…

There’s semi-rare life in my pond – the great, or Northern, crested newt co-habits with the smooth, or common, newt as well as a couple of Crucian carps, planted. I intend to see to it that the latter do not take over entirely…
