THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: WAY

In all the years of challenges I have never given you the theme WAY, so I thought it was about time I  included it in Thursday’s Special photo challenge. No other special reason than that. I will check the entries next Wednesday so take your time posting and let’s hope you will  find the right way 😉

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: TRACES OF THE PAST Y4-03

It’s time for another Traces of the Past theme and this month it shall be in colour. Peeking through bleak and bare trees and nature’s monochrome there is a beautiful Neogothic Parish church of Bled. Not one’s typical view of that enchanting Slovenian town, but the one I thought you might enjoy. For once I decided to show you an example from not so distant past as this church was built in the early 20th century. You have a week to post your entries for this photo challenge. In the meantime I wish you a happy Thursday and a great weekend!

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: WINTRY

This year winter came late, but when it finally did, it hit us intensely with tons of snow and storm winds. Snow even appeared on the streets of Rome and Venice. I did not go south to capture it, but here is a scene from a small town nested amidst Italian mountains. I apologize to my  friends in the Southern hemisphere for this theme, but I hope they can find something to interpret it: it does not have to be a new photo, or a photo of a landscape/town scene. It can be a reminder of winter, sort of a memento. Whatever you choose as a subject, I very much look forward to seeing your interpretations.  Take your time posting. I will look at your entries next week. Wishing you all a happy Thursday!

BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: TRACES OF THE PAST Y4-02

This is the only Black & White Sunday this month, and I decided that it should be Traces of the Past. Last summer I was lucky to visit, if only briefly, beautiful Rosslyn Chapel located in the village of  Roslin, Midlothian, Scotland. Once a place of Catholic worship, after the Scottish Reformation, Roman Catholic worship in the chapel was brought to an end, and the chapel was closed to public worship until 1861, when it was opened again as a place of worship according to the rites of the Scottish Episcopal Church, a member church of the Anglican Communion.

Since the 1980’s the chapel has been a subject of many speculative theories concerning a connection of  Freemasonry, the Knights Templar and the Holy Grail. It was prominently featured in the 2003 bestselling novel  The  Da Vinci Code and its film adaptation. Today it is a privately owned working church where services are held on Sundays and weddings and baptisms are reserved for the members of the Rosslyn Chapel congregation. Read more…

I hope you will enjoy this theme again. Your traces of the past don’t have to include old architecture or planetary famous sites; I would be very glad to see your alternative take on the theme – maybe some traces from your own past… 

Don’t need to rush with your submissions….  The deadline is in two weeks.

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

Here we are in February already and it is time for another Pick a Word themed photo  challenge. Maybe you will find the choice of today’s words stimulating, maybe too challenging, but in case you decide to join the challenge, I will be happy to look at your entries whether it is interpretation of one, several or all of the given words.

Post when you are ready, and I will look at your entries next week. Have a happy Thursday! 

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: ONCE OVER

If you think that you have seen this image before, you are right. I have posted it once for “After and Before” challenge. This time I would like to show a variation of the same scene. In the first photo I placed a tripod on a small bridge facing the rocks to be able to do a long exposure. There wasn’t much room to maneuver especially with passing visitors.

In the second one however, I placed the camera on the fence of the bridge which allowed me to frame my shot better. This is the frame that I prefer. I did not stop there I edited it a bit differently too, by giving it a fresher look. I hope that this time people will be actually able to see the faces on the rocks 😀

Take your time posting for this challenge. I will look at the entries early next week. 

P.S. I posted two different frames of the same scene here to show the difference and to show how sometimes a compromise of using a fence or other stable surface can come handy instead of a tripod that requires some room. It was not by any means an invitation to criticize my photos. I know that people that do it are not photo experts, but this is my blog, I keep it as a source of relaxation for myself and not for others to annoy me.

THURSDAY’S SPECIAL: MESSAGE

For this challenge I decided to post a photo I took while I was pretending to be a tourist in my own town. It was a fun experiment with some really cool finds like this one from the upper town which is very frequented by visitors all year around. 

So here it is – my message or should I say “massage” from Zagreb 😀

“HALLO” FROM ZAGREB

P.S. You know the drill – post your contributions for this week’s theme before next Thursday and link here. 

BLACK & WHITE SUNDAY: STILL LIFE

It’s winter where I am, and with uncomfortably cold and wet weather all I can think of in terms of creativity are some “studio” shots. Here’s an example of low-key still life in black and white. Your theme for this week’s Black and White Sunday is still life – it does not have to bee low-key of course.  I hope that you will have fun answering this prompt.
