Watery Wednesday: The Eye

(enlarge for best viewing )

I recently spent an evening trying to capture a splash of water. I was the one taking the picture and also the one trying to drop something in the water to make the splash. Not the way to practice I assure you.

The image above has a small splash to the right in the photo and it reminds me of a surfer. What really got me when I downloaded is what looks like an eye staring back at me in the black portion of the picture. The black spot is the plastic sink stopper. I was practicing in my kitchen sink so, no, there is no fish in the water. Not sure what you see; but I thought it rather spooky! It is Halloween month........

spooky! I really like the splash though. Ice sculpture!

Patti said...

I agree it's spooky. My first thought was "creepy," actually!

This is really creative, Carletta. And it does look a lot like an eye.

Patti said...

Woopsie doodle. How did I do that?

Carletta: That is so cool, you really have to enlarge it to get the full effect.

Thom said...

With photos like that I say keep practicing. It looks like it is just daring you as it watches you. EXCELLENT capture my friend :)

Mimi said...

Carletta, this is amazing when enlarged!
The right hand splash makes me think of a glass statue, skier. The eye is also an incredible effect.
You're so creative!

Now WHY on EARTH were you trying to capture a splash??? Huh? LOL! That is sweet little "plop" splash there... but the yea - the fish eye thing is kinda weird!

quilly said...

Oh my, that does look like an eye -- and it does seem rather fishy, though it doesn't look like a fish eye! And I may be reading way to many sword & sorcery type novels, but I'm wondering if you haven't encountered an evil magician. Though what he would want in your kitchen sink is baffling ...

Cool picture!
Love the surfer guy! Funny how that took the shape of a surfer.

This puddle picture is beautiful; you are so creative. I once tried to take a picture of boiling mudpots (in the Salton Sea CA area); somehow this picture reminded me of them -- a little spooky, wondering what is hidden down there. But beautiful and interesting to think about.

Pat said...

It DOES indeed look like a big ole eye with a VERY large PUPIL. Maybe the eye of a WHALE or something? Very interesting and enjoyable!

Artlover said...

It´s a very creative photo from you. I like it.

Ebie said...

OMG, very creative and a great shot. I see the eye, and I thought you were taking a shot of a lake!

Pacey said...

This is a unique way to practice some splash Carletta and you're a genius. Love this idea.

Ellie said...

I see the surfer! You deserve award for perseverance!

Stephany said...

Great shot!

Martha Z said...

You got a great shot, even better when enlarged. I love to experiment, that is how we get interesting shots.

Tricia said...

I actually thought it was a turtle when the page loaded & I saw it. I swear I still see a turtle. How funny is that! hehehe

gengen said...

Arija said...

Just lucky you did not get sucked into the black hole....of course you may have come out the other side of Halloween.

AL said...

It looks like a black hole to me! I can't help but imagine...LOL.

Nessa said...

That looks like the eye of a dragon.

Amanda said...

You have such a great sense of humor Carletta! and yep you need someone to help with those effects! but this is great and the caption just makes it! Happy WW!

Regina said...

Amazing capture Carletta.

SquirrelQueen said...

When enlarged you really get the full effect, it is even more creepy. Great shot of the water droplet.

Isn't it fun playing with water and seeing its movements and reactions?

Fascinating results to your experiments. Reading about what you did reminds me of how long it took to learn to toss the tennis ball to Molly and get the camera in position to capture her catching it and running back to me ... but practice DOES make perfect and in the end seems to work quite effectively. Happy Wednesday! We finally DID get some rain at long last ;--)
Hugs and blessings,

Carly said...
