Magic Mother and Me (2 MACROS)

I finally have proof positive that I really am stepping into Magic when I am behind my camera. On August 29, 2014 at 6:46 and 6:47 PM, I took two photographs of the exact same Rose called Mauvelous. As you can obviously tell by Her Name, Her color is mauve.

Well! The first photograph taken at 6:46 PM showed me a PURPLE Rose. The second photograph taken at 6:47 PM showed me a MAUVE Rose. The camera settings were exactly the same … ISO 400/ss1/166/f/5.6/60mm. Nothing changed except for the angle that I took the photo at. I have studied both photographs very closely and the only difference I see there is more light in the background in photograph 1 compared to photograph 2. Should this make such a drastic difference? I don’t think so.

I have no explanation for this phenomenon other then this is Magic. For those of you who don’t believe in Magic, I sincerely ask you for an explanation because my Mind likes to understand the reason WHY. Below are the two photographs. Be prepared to be amazed, because I am flabbergasted. Are you ready? Here is Mauvelous shown as purple and as mauve. Oh, for those of you who will say I changed the hue, I did not. You are about to see exactly what I did on the original photograph.

Photograph 1.  Purple Mauvelous

_MG_7682 Purple

Photograph 2.  Mauve Mauvelous

Now that you have seen my proof, are you as amazed as I am? Look closely. This really IS the exact same Rose just like I said. So how is it even possible without changing the exposure time (shutter speed) that the same Rose is showing as two different colors. NOT similar colors but two distinctively different colors? Anyone with any answers? I have none. This is just, in my opinion, Mother’s way of showing both you and me, I truly am stepping into Magic. Just WOW!

  1. I believe in magic, and I am quite content to say that the flower was responding to the magic coming from you. Splendid and mesmerizing shots 🙂 Peace . . .

    1. OH, risinghawk, what wonderful words to say to me, ones that bring such JOY to my Heart. So many do not believe in Magic, even though I keep saying over and over again it is Real. Now I have proof. And the way You explained is so cool, because this Rose was showing Herself to me in two different ways. Now I must meditate on this, and wait to hear the Message. I know there is one!!! (((HUGS))) Amy

    1. But, Cee, that’s the whole thing. I did not play around with the colors. That is how they both are on the originals. I didn’t change the colors. At all. I do thank you for the compliment, but I honestly don’t deserve it. This is how the camera took this rose as you see it. Love, Amy

      1. Yes I am! Although Val explained about the rainbow phenomenon which actually makes sense. SO there is a rainbow around me and the flower, and with an angle change plus my wunderful energy …. VOILA! Magic!

  2. I saw a BBC Planet Earth documentary that was about how we and animals see and colors. Colors come from the prism of the rainbow. The rainbow is always around us, yet we filter it through our human eyes.
    We can change how we see colors based on the angle of the glass prism. So I imagine that this relates to the angle of the glass within the camera and how the light is catching it in the prism of colors that are all around us.
    The magic of nature and what we don’t know in this world ❤

    1. Wow, Val, that is an awesome incredible answer. Just wow! Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. So there is a rainbow around me. OH MY GOSH! Wow!!!! You are SO right! What we still don’t know! (((HUGS))) Amy

    2. Val, I really think you just explained this mystery. I did change the angle from which I shot this image. The light must have reflected on the glass differently and then with my energy, purple was seen instead of mauve. OH this is so cool!!!! Love, Amy

  3. There is also other things to consider, was it taken on a different day, did a cloud move in, did the humidity suddenly change, did the time of day change from pic on to two. All this affects so much. Yes it is the same flower, that’s easy to see. But what happened and the factors involved can change a cameras view. Cameras don’t lie.

    1. There was one second in between both photos on the exact same day. I know cameras don’t lie, that is what is blowing my mind. Another commentor said there is a rainbow of colors around everything, and because I changed the angle of the lens (glass) that glass caught another color. Also my energy mingled in there as well. Believe me, when I SAW this, my mouth flew open and I said NO WAY! Oh yes, this truly did happen. I have seen things with my camera that have blown me away, but to this extent? No. (((HUGS))) Amy

      2. True. I have seen some things with my camera that I actually see something else through the view finder, “feeling” as though I am photographing something special, and when I do look at my LCD screen, I get blown away. Why? Because what is on my LCD screen as the image I just took was not actually what my eyes physically saw. This macro lens I am just in awe over because of what it has allowed me to see, things that I would not normally see. Hope your day was a good one, Abezure. Mine was a busy one. 🙂 (((HUGS))) Amy

I dread the thought of moving and just thinking about going through stuff, deciding what to keep, what to throw out, and how to pack it all, gives my stomach a deep ache. I know some day we will move from our home we built oursleves, and believe me, I do not even want to think of it. How’s your little boy handling it? Kids usually fare better then we aults.

  4. Beautiful pictures of the rose.

    You mentioned that there was more light in one picture than the other? Which picture has more light (first or second)? You mentioned that camera setting for both is the same, I assumed you use manual setting. Is this correct? What is WB setting?

    Like

    1. WB was set on automatic. The light is more in the first photo in the background. Yes I use manual settings for all my photos. Someone mentioned the rainbow effect, being there is a spectrum of rainbow light that we do not see with our eyes, yet our camera lens does. By moving my camera to another angle, I must have photographed a different spectrum of that rainbow. I find this fascinating, and to be truthful with you, I still have trouble believing that something like this can and does happen. SMILE xx Amy

  6. Nice color.
    If it is not by Mother…
    The correct color is the 2nd photo, isn’t it?
    The difference caused by white balance.
    The second photo is under the sunlight but the first is not.
    Your white balance can read in exif data. and I read it.
    Both photos are the same setting and the white balance is “Auto”.
    Perhaps both white balance are “daylight”(by Camera).
    But the first photo must be “shade”. ..
    Why your camera missed white balance.
    I think your camera was set to the “sky” in the view.
    But the colors are beautiful.
    Love.

    1. Good explanation, Chun. These were taken same time of day, one minute apart. So perhaps because there is more light in the background on photo one, WB set to day versus shade. Yes, the second photo is the true color. Digital cameras just amaze me, my friend!!! Love, Amy

      1. If there is a part that can be in the field of view of the camera, to determine accurately the WB, it works well.
        Otherwise, it will fail the Auto detect any camera.
        This also is not easy.

  7. Pinch me all you like, Amy! It’s a white balance thing going on in the two pictures. And YES changing your position can change the color of what you’re trying to capture. In my opinion, you should look into kelvin temperature as it pertains to white balance.

    Like

    1. Someone else said white balance as well, Jackie. I had it set on automatic and when I changed positions, the light that was more prominent in the back of the first image was not in the second image. I know there was an explanation yet it takes the FUN out of things. I just today started looking into kelvin temperatures and how colors change. *sigh* Yep. You are right. I don’t want you to be, but you are. LOL So there you have it. A scientific explanation. I still have SO much more to learn, and sometimes I just don’t learn fast enough which frustrates me. I am SO tempted to get a Samsung Galaxy and just put my Canon to the side. And also, IF I don’t use something I forget about it. Thanks, Jackie. (((HUGS))) Amy

  8. Amy it is not you who made HUE changes, it is the sunlight. At that time of the day the spectrum of light is changing dramatically fast, especially when day is shorter. This is my guess and only explanation, unless some atmosphere changing had place by the time of your shooting.

    1. Denise, if we don’t see SOMETHING and like any day now, how can we just keep on going on faith? There really was magic here, but it was figured out that my white balance which was set on auto, caught more light in one photo then the other, hence the color change. *sigh* I still like the magic theory!
