Welcome to Thursday’s Special photo challenge. Today’s theme is Blue Hour. It is my favourite time of the day for photo shooting. Hoping that you like this theme as much as I do, I look forward to seeing your entries 🙂
I know how eager some of you are to see what words June’s Pick a Word is bringing. This time we have only “good” words with positive connotation. So here I’m offering my list in the hope that it will make your creative juices flowing. Take your time responding to the theme and have fun!
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?
It’s time for another Pick a Word themed photo challenge. This is where you may choose one, or more or all of the offered words and interpret them through photos. I hope that you will find them challenging and inspiring enough.
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!
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…
This week’s Thursday’s Special theme is recycled. In the image below you can see a bench made of empty graffiti paint spray bottles. I hope you are a fan of recycling and that you will have no problems finding something for this theme. I look forward to seeing your entries next week.
To those that celebrate I wish a very happy Easter!
I almost let March go by without Black & White Sunday, and with a shorter weekend I only managed to post it today. Here’s a challenge which invites you to post the same image in colour and black and white. I call it “After and Before” and it is a recurrent event, the first one this year.
Above you can see a wonderful piece of street art from my neighbourhood. I liked it so much that I wanted to see what it would look like in monochrome.
Now, if you would like to participate in this challenge, all you have to do is to show the same image both in colour and black and white. You can do any theme or subject that you like. Please, take your time and have fun. Wishing you all a great week!
