Invitation

Invitation

What can I say?  Artistically, the image is pretty bland, but this fog-filled, never-ending field is very inviting to me at the moment.  I could use a little quiet time.  If you’re looking for me, I’ll be somewhere out there.

  1. You would be out there though, how do you expect to come back 😉
    —– I know it’s a metaphor, as such utterly undefined endless field
    enchants us with dangerous sweet smell of unexpected discovery
    or the freedom by disappearing into 4th dimension.

    Once lost in the mountain with deep fog, I realized, I came to the same
    place where I started 3 days ago —– reality is not so romantic 😀

    • Yes, you’re onto to something with that 4th dimension; that’s exactly what I’m looking for. 🙂 That must have been frightening those days in the deep fog! You’re right, reality is quite different from our imagination.

  2. Mysterious and somehow creepy too… 🙂

    • Yes, I think you’re right about that… There is a bit of a creepiness to it. 🙂

  3. I dunno… This scene feels apocalyptic to me. I like it, but I don’t want to be there.

    • I think you’re probably picking up on my mood (somehow) in this one. Although the photograph is titled “Invitation,” in a way, I was the only one invited. 😉 I was in quite the antisocial frame of mind the day I took this one. 🙂 You definitely would not have wanted to be there that day. 🙂

      • I sensed that and smiled. We all have those days, I think. Actually, I don’t so much now that I’m old and irresponsible again! 🙂

    • Thank you, Mark. I’m so grateful for your feedback and for your visit!

  8. Lemony, I don’t find this bland at all.
    It is simple but not bland.
    Quite lovely to my eye.

    • Thank you, Ashley. I think you’re right: simple, not bland. I’m so glad you like it!

  9. I’d be there too. I love how fog deadens sounds and how different ( and beautiful) everything looks when seen through it.

    December 10, 2012 at 11:06 am

    • Exactly! It’s so quiet and peaceful in the fog. A different world!

  10. I don’t think it’s bland so much as unnerving and post-apocalyptic! Great shot.

  11. I think wandering around in this space would be delightful.

    December 10, 2012 at 2:18 pm

  12. Simply a blank canvas, endless possibilities. I think it’s wonderful.

    No not bland at all. It is reminiscent of the photography of the late 1890’s. Goes very well with your December Dawn post. 🙂

  14. Not bland at all! Stark beauty. I love it!

  15. Amazing and I would love to walk there! Once a while I also need some time alone, don’t we all….

  16. I got lost with a friend once up on the Wiltshire Downs when a thick blanket of fog unexpectedly rolled down the hill.. it was VERY scary..

  17. Ah the subtleties of perception – I certainly like to see images this way…this is spot on! When I was growing up we had a field not dissimilar to this which was often covered with mist or fog. We played a game. We all had to walk straight out for the count of 100 from the stile and then it was the first person back who was the winner. You would not believe how long it took to find our way back! Very disorienting, like others have said.
