THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: PICK A WORD IN JULY – Y3

You are wrong, if you think that I forgot about July’s Pick a Word challenge. I’ve just been too busy to see the last week’s entries, but I will get to that soon. For now, here is the July’s mix for you:

I wanted to keep things simple and easy these time, but I hope you’ll enjoy the challenge anyway.

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?

And with a bit of necessary saturation

UPDATE: I am incredibly busy and have to postpone Thursdays Special and blogging till next week, 24 May.

BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: TRACES OF THE PAST Y4-04

This is the only Black & White Sunday this month, and I decided that it should be Traces of the Past (the recurrent photo challenge on this blog). Here is one of the most beautiful landmarks of Northumberland – the famous Bamburgh Castle. The day I took this photo it glistened nicely in late, golden sunlight, but for this opportunity I decided to show it in silvery tones i.e. in black and white.  

Don’t feel bad if there are no old buildings in your surroundings, past can be found in many forms, not just architecture.  I count on your original interpretations to prove that. Take your time responding to the challenge and most of all HAVE FUN!

NOTICE: The next challenge on this blog will appear on 10 May. I’m taking a break. 

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: ZOOM IN, ZOOM OUT

Here’s another Thursday’s Special photo challenge for you. This time the theme is “zoom in, zoom out”. Show one subject/scene (whatever you like) from up close and far. Let’s see how different things seem when you have a closer look. Take your time posting for this challenge and don’t forget to have fun. Happy Thursday! 

P.S. I have been very busy and haven’t had time to see your entries from last week, but I will get there…
