K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I set this week’s theme for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, choosing to turn everything; Inside out/outside in/upside down for a change.

As usual, I plucked that out of the air with no real clue what to do with it…until yesterday morning while I was sitting in the small garden shed that serves as a shelter from the rain, listening to the birds and drinking my first coffee of the day.

It occurred to me that I was sitting inside, looking into the outside and things kind of snowballed from there.

I took several photos of doorways; from the entrance and stairway of our building, to our front door, the kitchen, living room, bathroom and even my car.

Then I spent an entertaining hour or so, switching the view from each door, like something out of a pan-dimensional sci-fi story.

Here are the original shots…

…and these are the alternate universe versions:

See which way up K’lee wanted to go HERE.

Now you can flip us some snaps of your own.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge

Today’s bank holiday edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is brought to you by K’lee’s prompt of; Colour me cosmic.

I decided that our outing with Biff, an old friend who visited for Audrey’s birthday, would make a fine and colourful subject for the challenge, because we went to the Gnome Reserve.

This charming place is a labour of love, created and run by an equally charming and slightly eccentric lady called Ann Fawcett Atkin, who has been providing a sanctuary for gnomes from all over the world for 40 years.

She is an accomplished artist and gardener, with her artworks on sale in the house, from where you collect your gnome hat before touring the reserve (so as not to make the residents uncomfortable) and where you can also buy a traditional Devon cream tea, freshly made sandwiches and local ice cream.

So we donned our colourful hats…

…and set off into the woods.

See K’lee unfurl his colours HERE.

Now let’s see what part of the spectrum you’ve chosen to highlight for us…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Today’s post is more about artistic interpretation than photographic precision, with K’lee in the driving seat for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, leaving us the esoteric prompt of; If you could see into the heart of me.

Well, it was obvious to me that this would have to feature my family; Rhonda and I met in person for the first time almost exactly five years ago and, next week, she and Audrey will make their first trip back to America since they moved over here.

They are both very excited at the prospect of catching up with friends and family, especially meeting their first grandson/nephew for the first time, a visit delayed for over a year by financial constraints and intractable bureaucracy. It will also be the first time we’ve been apart as a family for five years, so they will of course be very much in my thoughts for the three weeks they’re away.

That seems like a lot of firsts for today, but it would hardly be a first to just post photos of my family, so I thought outside the box (well, outside in the garden) and made a little stop frame animated gif to illustrate K’lee’s theme as literally as possible, painstakingly constructing it from just two photos and a heart sticker.

You can see K’lee’s heartfelt and artistic post HERE.

But now it’s time for you to show us yours…

It’s time for K’lee to provide you with your weekly prod in the direction of creativity, on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge. This week, he has picked something which ties into a special day coming up on his side of the Atlantic; A state of independence.

Think you can come up with anything inspired by that?

Yeah? Then let us see what your creative talents produce by joining in with the challenge.

It’s easy when you know how…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Today’s adventure in imagery on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge was inspired by K’lee’s prompt of these three emotive words; Seraphic, diaphanous and immutable.

I couldn’t think of anything to go with seraphic, but clouds and fennel plants are both diaphanous and death is pretty immutable, so I’m going with those two.

I’m sure K’lee will have all three covered HERE.

But now it’s your turn.

NOTE: PINGBACKS MAY NOT BE WORKING, SO PLEASE LEAVE A LINK TO YOUR POST IN THE COMMENTS. THANK YOU.

Cosmic Photo prompt.

K’lee is at the helm for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, providing us with what I think is our most challenging theme yet. He has given us three words to inspire us and they are emotive, indeed;

SERAPHIC

DIAPHANOUS

IMMUTABLE

So make what you will of that and prepare to show us how you interpret them on Monday.

Have a lovely weekend, everyone.
