"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Perfect Moment Monday: New Photo Technique

Lori over at Weebles Wobblog says that "Perfect Moment Monday is more about noticing a perfect moment than about creating one. Perfect moments can be momentous or ordinary or somewhere in between."

I was playing around this weekend and the notion hit me to try something new with my camera. These were the cool beyond belief results (please click on them...they are even cooler when they are enlarged)...









and, the best thing about this technique is the only add on needed to take pics like this is a small toy plastic prism...
Taking pictures through a prism like this is ridiculously easy and you get the coolest effects.

Go check out the other perfect moments at this week's Perfect Moment Monday on Weebles Wobblog.

STOP PUTTING ON THOSE BEE LENSES!!! You know I'm allergic to those, right? I'm gonna completely freak if you show up with those at Blogher. I'll be the one waving the epi-pen like a light saber. :-P

Nice pics, sweetie!

Those are cool! I never would have thought of using a regular little prism. I was expecting to read about some very expensive gadget you had to buy in order to do that! Ha! Thanks for sharing!
