(An alternate version-I love this one as well!)
And, You can visit the Divine Diptych's Blog HERE to learn more about this Diptych and see the rest of Week 3's Diptychs. They are always a surprise which has turned out to be a lot of fun to see. I really love how each photographer interprets the given theme and then to see how the pairs photographs look together. It is truly alchemy which is really cool!
For our diptych, I dressed up in a very loose historic outfit which included a sapphire blue velvet coat, a cream and dark green striped silk skirt with a bustle back, black granny boots, and a gorgeous chenile scarf that MFayre had given me in a lilac/mushroom colour. I also brought out a large piece of turquoise silk. It was my plan to play with the silk and catch it moving in a photograph. Another idea was to jump and catch myself at the perfect second with the timer on my camera so I would look like I was flying. I almost caught this effect, but it was hard!
MFayre was busy with many other things so I sent her some of my photographs and she added them to photographs she had already for this project. Her goal for Week 3 was to set a long exposure and capture the movement of the river and she really achieved that beautifully. MFayre is a truly talented photographer. She has a very natural talent for it and she also works very hard to keep improving her skills. I could only hope that my photos would be good enough to go with hers. I was really happy and amazed at what our combination came out looking like. I also wasn't surprised as MFayre is very dear to me and we have many things in common and many of the same likes and dislikes. So, this was a fun pairing as they all have been! Thank you so much May! What a dream! I also did other "Movement" photos and will scatter them about for your viewing pleasure.
