Cosmic Photo prompt.

K’lee is providing the inspiration for next week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, posting it nice and early to give you maximum opportunities for capturing; Beautiful spirits of the natural world.

Fairly typically, our fabulous run of blazing summer weather seems to have stalled today, with rain and storms forecast for the weekend, so we’ll have to hope for a break in the clouds before Monday.

See you back here then, for your regular dose of photographic artistry and artistic photography.

Come on, join in, you know you want to…

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.

One liner Wednesday: Alternative dictionary.

This week’s alternative definition might be considered anatomically impolite, so I apologise in advance, but once these things arrive in my head, I can only release them into the wild and hope they don’t attack anyone;

“Expert” – Submitting to gravity.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I have a confession to make.

I set the prompt for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, because I had a specific event in mind when I picked; Street photography.

Saturday was Green Man day in Barnstaple.

Or rather, it was the Pilton Green Man Festival. Set in the old town’s sloping high street and around the Rotary Gardens, the all day event comprises craft stalls, live music, Morris dancing, fairground attractions, food and drink, a pagan procession and much more. It’s always a busy day and this year’s festival was no exception.

Audrey and I wandered through the crowds, soaked up some of the cheerful community atmosphere and I took some photos; including some of the slightly fearsome Morris men and women (see if you can make out exactly who is who in the final shot, I certainly can’t).

K’lee is out on the streets HERE, but now it’s time to show us what you found on your travels.

Cosmic Photo prompt.

Here we are again, the end of another week and the start of another chapter in the feature that is K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week chaired by yours truly.

Today I’ve decided to go with a prompt we’ve covered once or twice before, but it gives you a lot of scope for creative invention; Street photography.

So get out in the world and show us what’s on the streets where you live for Monday’s post.

Summer blooms in the garden.

I thought I’d take the opportunity of a day off work to capture the sudden burst of colour in the garden, brought on by the arrival of this strange thing called “summer”, which we are experiencing in the UK due to some sort of meteorological anomaly, (if my wife is to be believed).

So PLEASE CLICK THIS LINK to see the pictures over on Photo Sans Frontiers, my photographic sister blog.

Thanks.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee chose the theme for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, picking one of his trademark “open to interpretation” prompts and encouraging us to capture; Pieces of a dream, in black and white.

Well, I think I’ve managed to meet K’lee’s brief with these four images.

Two are old favourites, to which I’ve added an extra layer of Twin Peaks-style black and white zigzags, reminiscent of The Black Lodge, the other two were made yesterday. Oh, and they all seem to contain eyes, I’m not sure why.

The new composite pictures were made from a landscape and a cloudscape, with elements of these four photos added to them.

So, here are my monochromatic dreamy offerings, I hope you like them.

You can see what K’lee dreamed up HERE.

But now let’s see what fantasies you captured for us.

Edit (19/07/18): I am adding an extra one, which I was mucking about with for this post and thought it fitted nicely with the prompt.

Mixing lice and noise.

Another lazy weekend, another chance to sit in the sunshine and do some remixing.

This time, the victim subject of my sonic tomfoolery is Stephin Merritt, the singer/songwriter also known as The Magnetic Fields and his strange little song, The Meaning of Lice, which I mashed together with an Art of Noise percussion sample

Here are the lyrics;

Lice, lice, divine device
Miscellaneous
Ticks, ticks, and magic tricks
Subcutaneous
Fleas, fleas, STDs
All of Egypt on their knees
Lice, lice in paradise,
A necessary heresy.

Our god would want their sod
To turn to pestilence
Strange angels so unjust
To peasants in their tents
Murder, rust bringer
Of each leech and skin stinger
Lice, lice in paradise
Religion ain’t philosophy

Lice, lice, divine device
Miscellaneous
Ticks, ticks, and magic tricks
Subcutaneous
Fleas, fleas, STDs
All of Egypt on their knees
Lice, lice in paradise
A necessary heresy

…and here is my mix, along with the supremely gloopy video I made to accompany it.

I give you, The Art Of Lice.

Cosmic Photo prompt.

K’lee is setting the theme for this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge and he has picked another slightly enigmatic prompt for you to play with; Pieces of a dream, in black and white.

So if you think you can come up with something suitably dreamy and monochromatic, why not join us on Monday and get involved.

It’s easy when you know how…
