Next photo challenge on this blog may be expected on 15 November. You might have noticed that my presence on WordPress is scarce, but I have a good justification. There is no need to rush with your submissions as I will only look at them after my trip in November. See you soon!

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: TRACES OF THE PAST Y4-07

After a month’s break I decided to challenge you again with things from the past.

What Traces of the Past have you found near you or on some of your travels? Are they remains of the things once built and now in despair, the remains of natural occurrences or from your personal past? Whether they provoke admiration or make you nostalgic or even horrified, here’s an opportunity to showcase them for this photo challenge.

In the valley of the river Mincio in Lombardy there is a scenic little village by the name of Borghetto sul Mincio. If it weren’t for flocks of tourists coming to the place, I would call it one of the most idyllic and authentic villages in Northern Italy.

This is my last challenge before my summer break. Still so many things to finish before I manage to catch a breath. I’m planning to post a challenge again on 16 August. 

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: LOST IN DETAILS

They say that details create the big picture.

For this challenge I did not give you the title macro photography, or an abstract (which is too obvious when you look at my photo above), but lost in details, to give you an opportunity to interpret it differently. I am so looking forward to see how you will do it 😀

BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: TRACES OF THE PAST Y4-06

I usually post castles, churches and ruins for this challenge, but this time I thought it would be cool to see Traces of the Past in nature. After all traces of the past are all around us.

Here is an example of a remnant of one of many volcanic eruptions on Tenerife Island.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: TRACES OF THE PAST Y4-05

You are wrong if you think that I forgot about the Traces of the Past photo challenge. I am a day late, but here it is – Traces of the Past in colour this time. 

With the largest square in Italy and one of the largest in Europe, and its many narrow alleys and canals Padua revealed its hidden beauty to me on a beautiful night walk.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: SATURATION

I am sorry I can’t always keep this photo challenge a weekly event due to my ever increasing workload and stresses at work, but whenever I can I am happy to be here to challenge you and look at your entries. For this week I thought it would be a good idea to tackle “saturation”. It can be interpreted as colour saturation in photography – especially evident in the image post-processing, which is what I did in my examples below, but you can also take it from another angle. Did you know that you can be saturated with work too? 

 

Laurisilva, La Gomera

 

And with a bit of necessary saturation
