Whispers Across the Veil

Mourning Through the Veil
Once again I participated in the theme challenge at Delightful Aberrations this week, opting for the theme smoke.

I took the two photos here by setting my camera up on a tripod and photographing the smoke coming from an incense stick. Nothing particularly technical, really!

The results were pot luck; I liked half the shots I ended up with, and picked these two as my absolute favourites.

The top image almost fits in with one of the other themes, 'mourning', because the smoke looks like a veiled lady with a bowed head--hence the image title. 'The Veil' is also a term used for the border between our world and the spirit world...

...hence my titling of this one. (Honestly, I just thought the picture turned out cool, so thought up a title to go with it haha)

Anyway, that's it for photography this week. For my previous photos for this challenge, check out my photography tag!

  1. The shapes of the curls of smoke are really elegant and well-defined - they photographed really well!
    I see what you mean about the smoke resembling a veiled woman in mourning. The dark vertical line (gap in the smoke) even looks like a tear running down her cheek!
