X/ Alphabe-Thursday

 Railroad X-ing

If you saw my Sunday post HERE, you know I have been playing with peephole photography.  This photo was taken through a plastic peephole (unlike the metal and glass one in Sunday's post), which makes the photo look almost as if it were taken with a  LOMO camera (which also has plastic lenses).

 Same photo as first but edited using an exclusion filter

Not happy with the results in the first photo, I decided to play with it. I think the exclusion (aka X-clusion for this post) filter is kinda fun here.

Reflection in low light of an X

 Last Saturday evening, I was out taking sunset photos. Waiting for the sky to change colour, we looked down to see this X reflected in a puddle.

I am linking to Jenny Matlock at Alphabe-Thursday HERE

I just love your hybrid lomo effects. I'm looking at options for putting a fisheye on the front end of my lomo diana mini.

I like your creative approach to the X. Nice experiments. I rather like the reflection shot, but the Xclusion filter is nice too.

You had fun with that! We've lost our Island train, the E&N, so no railway X-ings here.

You very cleverly covered the X post, in word and image. Thumbs up to the peephole results (today and Sunday) too... I am partial to the last reflection shot.

That makes for a pretty cool effect!

=)

Evelyn said...

Ver interesting. Not sure why, but I am drawn to the third one - I like it a lot. Part of it is fuzzy, almost like an oil painting... but in contrast, there is metallic finish. Nice colours too.

ellen b. said...

I like that idea of peephole photography! Well done on the letter X!

myorii said...

How interesting! I have a friend who experimented with peephole photography once too and the results were interesting. I think the ones you took are quite interesting and I hope you continue to experiment with this!
