Soft focus coreopsis

So I was shooting some macros of a coreopsis plant that sits in a pot on my deck and noticed that the images were a bit foggy in the viewfinder. I checked my lens and closeup filters for gunk and gave them a good wipedown. Still foggy. I wiped off the viewfinder glass. No change.

What the heck. I kept shooting anyway. Occasionally I'll apply an Orton effect to a photo, but this one is pretty much as it landed on the film. The only thing I can figure is that the mirror in the camera fogged up going from indoors (with A/C) to outdoors, although it wasn't all that humid.

I don't know how I achieved the effect, but I like it.
