Cold weekend

Another play at Droste this evening, this time it’s the beautiful Wood Sorrell from the fields near me. It was when it was ice cold with thick fog that never cleared all day.

The Droste effect describes a specific type of recursive picture in which a smaller version of the larger image is featured within the larger image. Another term for this surreal photography effect is mise en abyme, which refers to the practice of inserting a replica of an image within itself. This creates a repetition that could continue forever, as the smaller version of the picture would contain an even smaller replica and so on.
