The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Today’s creative inspiration for The Cosmic Photo Challenge was a simple theme, allowing you as much aesthetic scope as you liked to make; Art for art’s sake.

I went with one abstract image, made using photos of a wind chime and a peculiar mix of surrealism and pop art which began with an idea for a Hamlet-esque Yorick pose and ended up as something else entirely.

Where did the artistic muse lead you at the weekend, I’d love to see your results…

This week on The Cosmic Photo Challenge we’re once again going freestyle, as I encourage you all to produce images which are just; Art for art’s sake.

Use your powers of creativity and imagination to provide us with pictures that are out of the ordinary, manufactured, morphed or manipulated to be more than a sum of their component parts.

So if there are any apps, filters or processes you fancied trying but have never got around to before, now’s your chance to throw caution to the wind and have some fun with your photos.

I look forward to seeing what you come up with on Monday, have a great weekend.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Good morning, or whatever time of day this post of The Cosmic Photo Challenge coincides with your Monday, I’m here to swap images illustrating the prompt; As the evenings start to lengthen.

I had to gamble on yesterday being photogenic enough to provide inspiration, since Saturday was grey and overcast, but fortunately it paid off.

I nipped down to the square and captured a few shots of deserted streets and the long bridge over the river Taw, just as the sun slipped below the horizon. A couple more sunsets taken during the week and (stretching the term “evening”, even by my flexible standards) a long exposure shot of star trails over the back garden.

“At the going down of the sun and in the morning, we will remember them”

Where did eventide find you over the weekend, would you like to show us..?

Oops, sorry, totally forgot about your prompt for Monday’s edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, so here’s a quick burst of inspiration; As the evenings start to lengthen.

Make of that what you will and I’ll see you next week.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Hello again, welcome to the week and another show and tell on The Cosmic Photo Challenge, today themed around the prompt; Against the wind.

Did I say something about the weather cooperating on Saturday?

Hmm, silly me, that didn’t help at all.

Saturday was mainly grey and miserable, with short bursts of blue sky and apathetic sunshine, yesterday it was just nasty, so I had to settle for snapping some wind-sculpted trees on a drive through the hills around Bideford.

Did the elements play ball for you at the weekend? Come on, let’s see what you captured…

On this week’s edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge I’d like to see some photos which illustrate the prompt; Against the wind.

It’s been pretty blustery of late, so knowing my luck this will result in us all having a beautiful couple of days with hardly a breeze to stir the air, (ok, that maybe wishful thinking) but in the event the weather does continue to cooperate, I’ll see your windblown offerings here on Monday.

Have a great weekend.

As we finally head into Spring, on The Cosmic Photo Challenge this week I’m asking you to take the opportunity to capture the world as it is; Before the leaves.

So boughs, stems, sticks, branches, twigs and trunks, all of nature’s wonderfully structural shapes and forms are at your disposal, you’re spoilt for choice.

See you on Monday, have a great weekend.

Hello there, I hope your weekend went well and you had the opportunity to capture some images to meet the brief for this week’s theme on The Cosmic Photo Challenge, which on Friday I set as; First hints of Spring.

I took a wander round Appledore on Saturday afternoon and stopped to snap a couple of my favourite bridge views first thing yesterday morning.

The ship’s anchor on Appledore harbour wall has been covered in knitted poppies by local residents, commemorating the war dead, some of whom no doubt lie in the graveyard which affords such glorious views of the estuary.

Now you can show us how Spring has sprung around your neck of the woods.

Ok, I’m probably going to jinx everyone’s weekend weather by doing this, but today’s prompt for The Cosmic Photo Challenge is on the mother nature-baiting theme of; First hints of Spring.

I know that maybe some of you are still living in the freezer, but that’s what makes it a challenge, right?

So seek out the green shoots of new growth, signs of impending rebirth, etc and I’ll see you for the show and tell post on Monday.

Have a great weekend, y’all.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Good morning, happy Monday everyone.

I requested that this week’s edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge should feature images themed around the prompt; Solid, liquid or gas.

I vaguely presumed some of you in chillier climes might be able to combine ice, water and steam/clouds for your submissions, but I didn’t really have a plan until yesterday morning, when I started mucking about with slo-mo video.

I discovered that it’s possible to get some very effective results with just a tripod, some ice cubes and various beverages (coffee turned out to be the best) positioned carefully over the sink.

You’ll have to take my word for it that there’s steam rising from the coffee mug, but I compensated for its invisibility by providing three states of picture instead; still, gif and video.

Now it’s time for you to show us what’s making a splash in your world this week…
