Cosmic Photo prompt.

For The Cosmic Photo Challenge this weekend, I’d like you to capture something which illustrates the prompt; Vertical.

No reason, just the first thing that popped into my head.

So get snap happy for Monday’s big reveal and bring some imaginative images to the party to start the week.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Good grief, is it Monday already?
I’m sure I must have fallen through a wormhole from Friday afternoon.

But at least I have your contributions for The Cosmic Photo Challenge to look forward to, themed this week around; Shadowplay.

With no particular ideas in mind and not having been out anywhere over the last couple of days, I found inspiration for my shadowy offerings at home and in the garden.

First these dramatically lit plants in the living room caught my eye…

…and the shadows of forsythia stems which seem to be hanging from the Virginia creeper vine.

But it was when I noticed the possibilities of shadows cast by my two metal fish ornaments that I got really inspired. One hastily-wedged bamboo pole on top of the shed later and I captured these cheery portraits.

After which I created a little aquarium scene…

…and then got rather carried away and made this.

And finally, I have the perfect opportunity to play us out with this classic clip of Joy Division

What did you do in the shadows at the weekend, come on, it’s show and tell time…

Well the days are certainly starting shorten now, so this week’s prompt for The Cosmic Photo Challenge returns to a theme we’ve had before and asks you to capture; Shadowplay.

Make of that what you will and meet back here in time for Monday’s show and tell.

Have a great weekend whatever you’re doing, I look forward to seeing what inspired images you have for us to start our week.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For a picturesque way to start this week, The Cosmic Photo Challenge has requested that you furnish us with images on the theme of; If you go down in the woods today.

So I did just that. On Saturday I went out to the wooded grounds of Arlington Court and yesterday I took a sunny stroll along the banks of the River Yeo, capturing trees, plants and water at their autumnal best.

{I took so many pictures, there wasn’t room for them all in one post, but you can see the whole lot HERE, ON MY PHOTO BLOG}

Then I came to a fork in the road…

Which way to go..?

This way, I think…

Now let’s have a look at your arboreal adventures…

Happy Saturday everyone, it’s time to give you your inspiration for The Cosmic Photo Challenge.
This weekend I’d like you to capture some images on the theme of; If you go down in the woods today.

So take a walk amongst the trees and provide us with a little autumnal beauty to brighten our Monday, it couldn’t be simpler to do…

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For this week’s prompt on The Cosmic Photo Challenge I gave you the time sensitive task of capturing an image of; Sunday 14:00.

So wherever you were, whatever you were doing in the hour between 2 and 3 yesterday afternoon, that’s what your subject matter was.

I was out looking for a waterproof jacket for Audrey in our local Sports Direct warehouse, so I used some masked selfies, combined with shots of footballs and the roof ducting, to make these two photographic oddities.

What spontaneous photo opportunities did Sunday-at-two bring to you..?

For your mission on The Cosmic Photo Challenge this week, should you decide to accept it, I’d like you to be very specific in one particular aspect of your contribution; Sunday – 14:00.

Yes it’s that simple, wherever you happen to find yourself at 2 in the afternoon tomorrow, (whatever that means in your personal timezone, obviously) that is where you have to capture this week’s images.

In fact I will be generous and make it any time between 2 and 3pm, to allow for some flexibility in your schedule, how about that?

I know, random, right?

But that’s what we’re all about here at the Cosmic Photo Challenge, finding surprising and unlikely ways to achieve unusual and interesting results, so why not give it a go…

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For this week’s edition of the photographic imaginarium which is The Cosmic Photo Challenge, I asked you to provide us with some pictures that satisfied the simple prompt; Inversions.

Upside down, inside out, back to front and the wrong way round, it’s amazing how much of a difference it can make to an image with just one or two elements reversed.

Take faces, for example, how would it look if you turned just the eyes and mouth upside down..?

…well, no, fair enough, maybe not that.

How about inverting the colour of a photo, then overlaying it with the original, then painstakingly erasing parts of one of them to make surreal juxtapositions?

Yeah, ok, let’s try that instead.

What did your visual adventures turn up this week? Show us your haul, we’d love to see…

Ok, this is the third time I’ve “remembered” to post a prompt for Monday’s edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge and maybe I’ll make it to the end without getting sidetracked this time.

This week’s theme is; Inversions.

That’s it, short and sweet, show us what you’ve got at the start of the week, enjoy your time off and I’ll see you for the big reveal.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Good morning, welcome to Monday.

There will be an exciting announcement coming later today, but for now it’s time to turn our attention to The Cosmic Photo Challenge and the prompt I left you to mull over at the weekend; The everyday into the unusual.

I dropped my glasses onto my Audrey Hepburn cushion on the way to the shower yesterday and this was what I saw on my return…

…which reminded me of this sacrilegious but amusing defacement I made a couple of weeks ago.

After that, I got a bit carried away.

I took a handful of perfectly ordinary images from recent photo outings…

…and did a lot of peculiar things to them until they looked like this.

How did you get on with meeting this week’s challenge, we’re all dying to know..?
