The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

This week on The Cosmic Photo Challenge I asked you to base your creative contributions on the prompt; Dusk.

I fulfilled my optical obligations by taking a quick drive down to the town square yesterday evening, to capture some sunset shots by the river Taw.

Where were you to document day’s end for us this week…?

Cosmic future plans.

***ATTENTION PHOTO CHALLENGE FANS***

Hello there, I’ve just popped by to tell you about some plans I have for my weekly interactive photography challenge prompt feature thingy, which has now been going for over 200 posts!

Well, due to storage space limits on this, the second incarnation of my “main” blog, (which I don’t want to have to migrate to a new site all over again) I have decided that I’m going to set up a brand new blog completely dedicated to The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

When the new site is active, I will be publishing both the weekly posts there, but only the Friday Saturday prompts will still appear on this blog thereafter.

I hope that’s clear, but if not don’t worry, there will be a transition period during which I will constantly remind people where they should be posting and I will also provide pingback links to the new blog in the prompt posts on this one.

Thank you for your time, see you tomorrow for this week’s challenge and look out for some audio visual treats later this evening…

It’s Saturday, which means it’s (past) time for your dose of photographic inspiration on The Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week themed around; Dusk.

Couldn’t be simpler, right? Or maybe you have an unusual spin you can add to the mix, I look forward to finding out.

So I’ll see you on Monday and we’ll all find out together.

In the meantime, keep an eye out for an announcement about the future of The Cosmic Photo Challenge over the weekend, along with some more new music releases…

Good morning, welcome to the new week. Monday means The Cosmic Photo Challenge, which this week is themed around the prompt; Repetition.

It occurred to me that using the same photo multiple times is something I’d already been mucking about with during the week, so I added a couple of new edits and one other, more reflective shot for variety.

Now it’s time for your repetitive images, let’s have a look…

Good morning and welcome to your perma-late prompt for The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I was trying to think of a theme which hasn’t been repeated too many times, when suddenly it struck me that there was one we hadn’t had before (at least I don’t remember if we have) and ironically it is; Repetition.

So duos, trios, quads and upwards are all de rigueur for Monday’s big reveal, whether in real life or achieved by sneaky editing, all your repetitious offerings will be greatly received.

Have a great weekend, see you in a couple of days.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For today on The Cosmic Photo Challenge we are going to brave the elements, because; Here comes the rain.

I had to spend much of Saturday (when it really was horrible weather) searching for a new washing machine and driving to and from the launderette, so it wasn’t until yesterday that I got out to take photos.

As you can see from the artistic view out of our living room window, it was really hammering down at one point, but I dodged the worst of the downpours in the park to capture some nice reflections in puddles and the river.

Now let’s see what the prompt precipitated from you this week…

Hello there, it’s time for your weekly prompt on The Cosmic Photo Challenge, which today is determined by the weather; Here comes the rain.

Yes, it’s a wet weekend and it looks like it’s here to stay for a while, so pictures of precipitation are the order of the day for Monday’s post.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.


Good morning and welcome to another Monday show and tell on The Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week brought to you by the prompt; The arrival of autumn. (with the usual caveat to anyone in the southern hemisphere, of course..)

I had planned to take a walk along the Tarka Trail from Fremington Quay yesterday, but when I drove up there I found the access road closed due to a running event, so I continued on to Instow and captured the start of autumn on the beach instead.

I hope your weekend went well and I’d love to see what the change of season looks like in your part of the world…

Free download: Brand new remix, exclusive to Bandcamp.

This weekend’s musical project was conceived when I heard Tom Tom Club‘s Genius of Love on the radio during the week. That’s most often the time I think “Ooh, that sounds like it has potential for some mucking about” and file it away for future experimentation.

Well yesterday the experiment began.

I started by establishing the BPM and key of the song, (102.9 and B Major, if you’re interested) then I proceeded to assemble an eclectic range of samples from online archives, which I carefully sequenced, after re-tuning them to match the pitch and speed of the original track.

And as usual when I embark on these sonic adventures, I got a bit carried away and ended up making an entirely new and somewhat extended piece of music; one that stands up perfectly well on its own and with which I have to say I was pretty impressed.

But, since I’d made it, I thought it was still worth splicing together with Tom Tom Club’s bouncy, post-punk pop song and the freely playable and downloadable result appears below in all its extravagant glory.

Enjoy.

Welcome to an on time prompt for The Cosmic Photo Challenge, which this week is inspired by Wednesday’s equinox and requires that your photos give us some views of; The arrival of autumn.

Not much to explain about that one, but I’m sure you will all, as always, add a unique spin and creative style to your pictures.

Have a great weekend, I look forward to seeing some autumnal images in Monday’s post.
