{the calming fog}

Thank you so much for those of you who have nominated a person/family for my give-away below. The stories I’ve gotten so far have been heart-wrenching reminding me how important it is to give to others and to give often.  There’s still time to send more nominations – just make sure you send them to kara@karamayphotography.com  telling me your nominations story, their name and your contact information.  I’ll be posting the results on Christmas Eve (after obtaining permission from the recipient). 

I love mornings like this morning.  I woke up to deep mystical fog outside my window.  I love the quiet, calm feeling fog brings – everything seems to slow down a bit.  It’s almost as good as snow (I love snow and have been so jealous that my family and friends in Seattle are seeing snowfall – I miss it and Tyler does too).   Anyway, after I dropped the kids off at school I rushed home to get my camera and set out to take a couple of quick pictures before heading back home to packaging orders.   Here’s some of what I captured today.   I haven’t had time to look at all of my images just these few.  The second image I played around with my two of my homebrewed processings to give the image a different look.  

Image below: I drive past this old tree and decayed shack every day. Something about this path takes me to another place.  I’ll even take the ‘long route’ just to get another glance at my lonely, beautiful tree an the long narrow path.

I haven’t checked back in a while. Hope I haven’t become a complete stranger to you now.

These pictures are beautiful on a sort of haunting level, I don’t know how you do it! Just out of curiosity, what kind of camera do you have?

Soooo beautiful. Definitely need to be hanging on a wall. Love your treatment too.

Thanks for your comments! Yes aren’t these haunting and eerie?! Yet peaceful, mystical and dreamlike? A strange but very grabbing combination that I’m drawn to. I’m so glad you like them!

That mist is so beautiful and haunting

LillyDecember 17, 2008 - 7:22 pm

Stunning. Amazingly beautiful. You should really consider selling your fine art Kara. You could make some cash on these. I would buy one/some/them all. Absolutely beautiful!!

These literally took my breath away!!! The 3rd photo with the processing you used is PERFECTION and oh how I would love to have that hanging nearby to “take me away”. The scene is so calming. You truly have captured simply beauty Kara and these peices of art I hope are hanging in someone’s home to enjoy!! Gorgeous work…and if I am not back around before the holidays…Merry Christmas to you and your family!!
