K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Hello there, happy new year to you all, on this final day before I have to return to work (my sympathy to those of you who are already back in harness) and welcome to the first post of 2017 in K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

This week’s challenge, set by K’lee, is especially apposite, given the symbolic renewal inherent in the ushering in of a new year; Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow.

Now I’m assuming that, unless you invented time travel over the Christmas holidays, none of you have managed to get any photos of tomorrow, but I’ve stuck as closely to the brief as the laws of physics allow.

I’ve taken three photos of the same tree; one on Friday afternoon (broken cloud, blue sky), one on Saturday night (dark, obviously) and one yesterday morning, (misty, grey sky) all of which I’ve layered over each other in different directions, giving the following results…

…and if that isn’t enough for you, here’s the remix:

Pretty good, huh?

K’lee’s post for the day is HERE, but now let’s see what you came up with…

*****

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.

Reblog: Auditioning for Ghostbusters

Lanthie is halfway through her treatment for throat cancer. Please head over to Lump, What Lump? and give her some love, thanks….

Lump, what lump?

I am halfway through my treatment today.

I have another 2 chemo Sessions and 15 radiation sessions left. So here’s an update about how I feel.

Last chemo Session was Wednesday last week. I know I feel off on a Thursday and Friday. Then by Saturday evening I start feeling good again.

However I had a sudden loss of appetite. As in I am not in the least bit hungry. and had no food for 4 days.

This topped by having a HUGE amount of mucosa in my mouth. To the extent that before I can talk to you I need to have a spitting session into a glass first. It’s horrible. It’s thick like slime. I could audition for a part as one of the ghosts in Ghostbusters – no special effects required.

So the combination of me not eating and the mucosa had me at the doctors on…

Reblog: Is my mouth compromised?

Update on Lanthie and her journey…

Lump, what lump?

Feeling a bit better today. My face is still black and blue. My throat is sore. I am very aware of the lump in my throat and can feel it all the time.

My lips are better but still very dry. Been applying cream faithfully.

Tired of the jaw ache and related sinus headache all the time. Not in pain but the ache is constant and wearing on me.

Saw the Butcher yesterday. He was very pleased with how my mouth was healing. I was hoping to never see him again. But he politely told me we would become best friends over the next 3-6 months. I would be seeking his help with sores and ulcers in my mouth and throat.

That got me thinking- it’s a week since my mouth surgery. I can’t remember feeling good. Will it heal in time for the radiation to just destroy it again?…

Cosmic Photo redux…

In the spirit of sharing, here for your deliberation, is a post from my photo-blog, Photo Sans Frontiers, a reflection on this week’s challenge…

Photo Sans Frontiers

I was rather pleased with the results oftoday’s editionof K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, especially since I used very little in the way of actual effects to produce the pictures that I posted, just a bit of tweaking.

However, due to my inability to leave a good image un-mucked about with, I’d now like to present my Cosmic Photo redux;a foil, if you will, to the six crinkly offerings from this morning.

Hold onto your eyeballs…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

img_20160318_210825-picsay.jpgIt’s Monday, which must mean that it’s time for cosmic photography.

This week, it was K’lee’s turn to pick the theme and he came up with this;

“FAST CARS

This could be any type of fast car your imagination brings to the surface of your consciousness – you decide, you create…for the ‘K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge’ “

Well, I drive a Nissan Micra, (not the sportiest of cars, although I love it) so I was never going to do a convincing job of crowbarring that into this post, but I thought of a way of suggesting how fast some cars were going, even if I was restricted to picking them at random as they drove past.

So here is my offering for today; I attempted (with varying degrees of success) to capture the traffic as it sped past the layby I was sitting in on the way home from working overtime on Saturday morning, then I layered the shots over each other to give this time-lapse effect…

New Starship Gypsies post: 21. Coming Home

The collaborative space opera continues, with a new episode on Starship Gypsies from Jerry (with a little editing by yours truly)…

Starship Gypsies

image

Tori couldn’t believe she was stranded AGAIN. It was like deja vu; for her and the rest of the Zapp family, it brought back the feelings of helplessness and isolation of their experiences in the escape pods. At least this time, they had the crew of the crippled ship, The Three Zees, to keep them company and they could all wait in the dim light together and hope for rescue. They were into their third day since the explosion now and talk amongst the crew about possible damage to the ship and of their hopes and dreams for the future had given way to more practical matters. Like how to stay warm and conserve their rapidly dwindling air supply, and what the probable chances of rescue actually were. After the early realization that three crew members had been outside the ship during the accident, there was no further discussion…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

img_20160318_210825-picsay.jpgHello there.

Monday again, so time for the weekly photographic experimentation session that is K’lee an Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

This week I’m going for a somewhat less abstract offering than my last one, although I have still kept a bit of magic in reserve.

Audrey has been very poorly for the last week or so, with a really nasty cold/cough/chest infection that has kept her off school since last Wednesday. I’m sure she hasn’t got bored of watching endless Scooby Doo DVDs just yet, but I thought she might appreciate a like-minded playmate to keep her entertained, so here’s something I put together from our graveyard visit a couple of weeks ago…

img_20160408_162526-picsay.jpg

Double Trouble.

K’lee already has his contribution posted, which you can see at this link, so pop over and check it out.

Next week, we shall be officially starting our themed photos, so watch out for a reminder prompt each Friday, (starting this Friday) letting you know how to take part.

In the meantime, if you have a Cosmic Photo to contribute, add it to your blog and leave a link in the comments (or pingback here or to K’lee’s blog, they are now working again) and don’t forget to tag your posts;
