This week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is brought to you by another of K’lee’s open-to-interpretation prompts, which asked us to look for anything that was; Hiding in plain sight: Photo elements you might have missed.
Although this seemed like an interesting concept to begin with, I was soon stumped for ideas because, well, how would you know if you’d missed something?
So I started scrolling through the thousands of images in my Google Photos album, looking for inspiration, hoping something would magically jump out at me.
After half an hour of fruitless searching I was about ready to give up and Photoshop a random duck into a landscape photo, or add Audrey to a crowd scene like a female Where’s Wally impersonator, when an old picture of her wearing my sunglasses scrolled past.
Aha! Mirrored lenses, they’re always handy for unusual reflections.
And I was not disappointed because, if you zoom in you can see, not only me taking the photo, but a shadow of me doing so, cast by the sun on the wall to my left.
Which just goes to show, there’s often more to the picture than meets the eye.
K’lee will point out his seen-but-not-seen puzzle for you HERE.
Now it’s your turn to uncover some photographic phantoms for us.
To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.
Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.
Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.
