Weekly photo challenge: Symbol


This is not the most artistic of my photos.  Ideally I’d like to take the blanket up to Hillsborough Park’s Walled Garden to show it off a bit more, but I’ve not got the time.

So why have I chosen this stripy, single bed sized blanket to be my ‘symbol’?

Weekly Photo Challenge: Blur


Two pictures taken at one of the Saturday night sessions, 4th April 2015.  Matt Nelson playing his mandolin.  I love taking photos of musicians, but there’s almost always a blur, a hand or a bow, for example. I like how clear some aspects of this picture have come out, despite being half he room away and in a dark room!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Fresh


So this week I’ve put together another gallery, with different ideas I get from the word ‘fresh’.

 

Below we’ve got fresh ingredients from street markets in SE Asia, a freshly chopped coconut in Fiji, fresh water fun, fresh faced, a refreshing blended iced green tea latte, freshly dyed skeins of silk, freshly made felt, fresh flowers as an offering and a freshly prepared (by me) meal.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Orange


I’ve not done one of these for a while so here we go. I originally thought I’d only have 4 or 5 but got a bit carried away, as you can see.  These photos cover 4 continents and about 3 years of my life.  Some of the hues come from nature, some are man made and others are the result of nature’s affect on man’s creations. I’m always drawn to photographing things with red tones, because red is a favourite colour of mine, but I’d not realised I had so may different oranges until I started going through to select some.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Art of Covers


I know you aren’t meant to judge a book by it’s cover, but we do, of course we do.  If I see a book with a plain black cover, stern white font and one item lit up with one colour tone then I’m going to avoid it because it’s either 50 Shades of Grey or one of it’s many knock-offs.  I’m never going to read any of them.  If it’s all ink with slightly curled font in a pastel tone, perhaps with cupcakes or stars around it, then that’s probably not a book for me either.

I love collections of anything grouped together as a subject for a picture, but particularly book or album covers.  I like the differences and similarities in the layout, font, colour choices, images, sizing and all that sort of thing.  And so I take pictures of these groupings and some of these can be seen below:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Cover Art


The brief for this weekly photo challenge is to think about an image that could be used as a cover for something – a magazine, an album, a book perhaps.

I’d like to make an album at some point.  I know what the cover is going to be like, I’ve got it in my head, but I don’t want to reveal that yet.  I’ve started writing a book and I’ve got an idea of what the cover of that might be, even if I’ve got no title and no definite conclusion to the story.  So I’m not going to reveal that yet.

At some stage I’m going to put together my photo journal of Felt Sherlock‘s travels and I think this should be the cover:IMG_8072
