A Note on the Water

C sharp in 100ml

I nearly didn't participate in the art & photography theme challenge on Delightful Aberrations this week. Though I have ideas, I also have a bug (of the ill health kind) so haven't been feeling up to taking pictures.
But since I had my phone and a glass of water to hand, I decided to wing it, so I'd at least produced something, even if the pictures were terrible.

I chose the voice theme, and ended up with the images seen here.

B flat in 150ml

My idea was to capture the vibrations a voice causes in water. I would have done this more differently if I'd been feeling better (starting with a container bigger than a glass!) and I'd have used a camera and a model rather than the front camera of my phone and myself.

Anyway, these are the two final pictures. I'm not pleased with them, and if it wasn't that I'm stubborn as anything about keeping up with stuff I've begun, I wouldn't post them!
For the record, the notes mentioned in the picture titles are chosen at random for the sake of a title; I think the notes I actually used were about an octave apart.

Here's a bonus, using the same layer-style method as last weeks pictures; this time I used the 'linear light' style on one picture when they were overlaid:

Close to the centre of this picture, it almost looks like a frog emerging from water, doesn't it?!

  1. Even though you said you're not pleased with these, I like them because the bubbles(?)/water droplets in the water look make it look like bubble wrap or frogspawn. It's cool!

    Thanks for participating even though you're not well. Hope you feel better soon!
