Dream-ography



"You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one"

- John Lennon (Imagine)

{KK-dream)

I was going to finish a post that I started many, many months ago, that would have tied in so well with this weeks song-ography and MLK day.

But, I must have been dreaming...

Or I may have just run out of time. My girl was sick all last week, and we took her back to school this weekend after a very nice long break.

This is the time of year, with bare branches, and minimal landscapes that I crave the dreamy effects of abstract photographs. This was a new spot I found by my house the other night, on my way home from an epic day with my camera. From sun up, to literally sun down . . . I was gone for over 12 hours! It felt so good to see the sun.

It won't be long before we start getting leaves budding out on the trees, which means it will be harder to get this kind of dreamy abstract. I'll have to start dreaming of something else . . . 

 . . . but I'm probably not the only one.

And, just for the record . . . I do imagine all the people sharing all the world, with no need for greed or hunger, a brotherhood of man.

Some say I'm just a dreamer ...

"Optimist: day dreamer more elegantly spelled." - Mark Twain

I'm over at Focusing on life today, sharing some night photography experiments, and how I did them.
It's our theme for the month, come check it out - it was fun!

Happy Tuesday friends,
Love, Kim

LOVELY dreamy shot Kim! I was down your way over the weekend and thought of you when I watched the sunrise over the ocean. Nothing quite compares.

Very beautiful and perfectly dreamy! I love the song Imagine...now you've inspired me to find some minimalistic winter scenes and experiment with the blur. Love it!

this is a beautiful image. I have had this song in my head for some time now after seeing a video of the people in the streets of Paris singing it together in support of Je suis Charlie

I am a huge fan of your abstract landscapes - there is such an amazing quality to them - of color and dreaminess and emotional mood.

Makes me want to just float away.

So creative and beautiful. I love the colors and composition. Do you blur the image in the camera, or do you do it in Photoshop? Either way it is wonderful. Hope everybody stays well at your house. :)

Masterfully done! Exquisitely beautiful- wow!

Exquisite edit of your photo of an amazing location. Our last one heads back to college this weekend - with the flu virus making it's rounds I am keeping my fingers crossed she doesn't catch it (what a miserable flight that would make).

I love that Mark Twain quote! Beautiful, dreamy image, Kim. I love bare branches...there's something poetic about them.

Dotti said...

LOVE the photo! The colors are so saturated, it makes a wonderful abstract. This should be printed and hung. Just sayin' ...
