Cosmic Photo prompt.

Good morning/afternoon/evening to you, wherever you may be and welcome to another Friday prompt for The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Today I am asking you to apply your ingenious (or should that be igneous?) creativity to the theme; Set in stone.

Any type of stony subject matter is acceptable, be it geological, monumental, or architectural, so get snapping and find something to rock our world for Monday’s post.

And how do you enter your photos? Well, it’s *ahem* sedimentary, my dear challengers…

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Time once again to dive into the fast flowing creative waters of The Cosmic Photo Challenge and see what wonders we can discover beneath that shimmering surface.

This week I asked you to theme your post around the prompt; The dark and the light, however you choose to interpret that concept.

I went with the idea of composite duality, (a fancy term I just this moment invented) using careful editing to show negative cutaways of colour photos.

I was very pleased how these came out, so I continued mucking about until I stumbled on the weird optical illusion below.

Both of these side-by-side photos of a slate wall are exactly the same image, the only difference is the colour inversion. There has been no change in size, shape or angle in any way, yet somehow…

The final flash of inspiration came from the same door that has already featured in several challenge posts, reconstructed from two differently illuminated shots; one lit from inside the kitchen and one with the kitchen dark and the light on in the living room.

Now it’s time for you to light up our lives with your contributions.

Your prompt for The Cosmic Photo Challenge this week could take you in any number of directions, as long as your contributions somehow invoke; The dark and the light.

Shadows, contrasting colours, black and white, day and night, umm…good and evil..? Well, you get the idea and I know y’all are creative enough to come up with your very own spin on the theme.

Because that’s what it’s all about; how you interpret the theme each week is entirely up to you. It’s great to see different perspectives on the prompts and I am grateful to everyone who has participated in the Cosmic Photo Challenge over the years, your talent and vision is a constant inspiration and influence in making imaginative imagery.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Welcome, everyone, to this revamped edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, (as it will be known pending K’lee’s return) complete with a new badge for you to add to your weekly challenge posts should you feel inclined.

On Friday I set a simple theme of; From above, a mission I accomplished on a trip into town with Audrey on Saturday, when the two of us scaled the Barnstaple Castle Mound to eat our lunchtime pasties and take in the rather blustery view.

So here are some shots of the town and surrounding landscape (and Audrey) from above, the sides of the river valley in which Barnstaple stands just visible in the distance.

What did you cast your camera eye over for this week’s show and tell?

Let’s see what you found, it’s easy when you know how…

Hello and welcome to the first of my solo prompts for the feature formally known as K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee’s blog is taking a sabbatical for a while, so there will be some minor (hopefully temporary) rebranding from next week but, other than that nothing will change, the challenge will remain the same.

And this week the theme for you to base your creative contributions on, is; From above.

So get on your photographic high horse and look down on the world for Monday’s post.

{I will be making a new badge that can be used to head your posts for the challenge, should you so wish, hopefully by Monday}

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

My turn to provide the creative inspiration for this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge and I set you the task of coming up with some; Nature as art.

I created three abstract pieces, from photos of trees, pampas grass, roses and carnations.

See what you think.

K’lee flexes his artistic muscles HERE.

Now you can show us what natural wonders you captured over the weekend.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Hello and apologies for the lateness of the hour, I’ve been run off my feet today and have hardly had time to eat, let alone compose this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge post. But I’m here now and ready to give my contribution to K’lee’s prompt; Textures in my life.

I kept it simple and picked half a dozen images in the vicinity of my immediate daily life:

A couple of contrasting plants on the kitchen windowsill; one of this weekend’s batch of my homemade muffins (cranberry, goji berry, sunflower seed, lemon and cornmeal, recipe on request, should you be interested); a pebble-dashed wall, with varied focus, giving a soft and hard texture in one photo; some aluminium swarf from inside the CNC machine at work, and the rubber safety mat in front of it.

edit: an extra, mucked about with image, inspired by David’s comment.

You can see what K’lee has got up his sleeve HERE and it’s impressive, too.

Now show us how your world is textured.

Here I am, don’t worry, I hadn’t forgotten you and left you all promptless for your weekend burst of photographic creativity.

K’lee has provided a theme with some scope for interpretation; The textures in your life, so get those shutters clicking and bring us some images to start our week.
