Weekly Photo Challenge: Ambience…Mist and mystery

Time to take a quick break from making granola to check for the Weekly Photo Challenge prompt…and it isn’t there.  Okay then.  Back to tea and granola and periodic checking.

Okay, it’s up, but not in the regular spot and no pingbacks right now.  But I’ll forge ahead.  “Ambience” always makes me laugh because one day I used the word while teaching a high school Bible study.  When I asked if everyone knew what it meant, one boy blurted out, “The store for lovers.”  In that area, there was an “adult” store selling sexy lingerie and so on, named Ambiance with the tagline, “The Store For Lovers”.  Now I smile inside if not out every time I hear it.

Ambience, or ambiance, is the special atmosphere or mood of a particular environment, the mood, character, quality, tone, atmosphere, etc.  I think this shot captures the ambience of being out on a beautifully foggy day, wrapped in mist and mystery.

  20. Allan G. Smorra says:

    I love a good foggy day and this one is no exception, Janet. The sun in the branches and the receding line of trees really make this photo work.

  21. thirdeyemom says:

    A beautiful photo for the challenge Janet!

  22. Anita says:

    Such a moody picture, Janet. Perfect for quiet, contemplative walks!

  23. joey says:

    Cute story! Ours here is called Priscilla’s. Well, it may be something else now…The Mister says it’s Cirilla’s and I recall he’s right. Still “The Store for Lovers.”
    The fog photo is beautiful. I love it. Great ambience. It was plenty gray and foggy here this week, too. One day, I think Wednesday, I went out dressed head-to-toe in gray, looked at the sky, and said, “You too, huh?”

    • I like black, so I don’t think that about the sky too often…except at night. 🙂 I wish I could wear yellow and then go out and talk to the sun, but yellow doesn’t look good on me.

      Sleep well.
