K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Welcome to an artistic installment of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, curated this week by K’lee, who chose the prompt; State of the art: Yesterday, today or why not tomorrow.

I decided to take that fairly literally and pick a few of my original “art” compositions from previous posts and create a new one specially for the occasion.

Here are some old favourites…

…and this is the latest addition, made using some graffiti I captured on last weekend’s walk with Audrey.

K’lee showcases his artistic side HERE.

Now it’s time for you to dazzle us with your aesthetic creativity.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For this week’s entry in the annals of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, K’lee chose to get more cosmic than usual by picking the prompt; The realm of the otherworldly.

To me, that just says “surreal mucking about” which is precisely what I did, creating two composite images to illustrate today’s theme.

I started by taking a photo of the tree on our front lawn and it kind of evolved from there, see what you think of the results…

K’lee will provide us with some out of this world images HERE.

Now you have the chance to shine with your contributions.

You know what to do and how to do it, but just in case, here’s the drill…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

The sky is quite literally the limit this week on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, because of the prompt K’lee set us on Friday; Move the clouds, a heavenly perspective.

Now I’m a big fan of cloudscapes and have a large selection to choose from, so I picked a few from the archives and used a couple more as backdrops for two new views of an imaginary Barnstaple.

You may recognise an old stone building from earlier posts, relocated from the Yeo to the Taw river, along with some other impossible structures I created from shots of the town’s eclectic architecture.

K’lee will be looking to the skies HERE.

Now it’s your turn to give us a tour of the heavens, let’s see what you brought to the party.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee set the theme for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, choosing to get all architectural on us and suggesting we investigate the possibilities of the prompt; Sublimely structural.

I’m not sure if my offerings count as sublime or ridiculous, you’ll have to decide for yourselves.

I had to drop Audrey at Barnstaple’s Queen’s Theatre yesterday afternoon, where she was attending an eight hour rehearsal for the upcoming Gang Show, so while I was there I took a few photos of the theatre itself and some other buildings around town…

…then I got to work on a selection of composite images that I’m calling Imaginary Barnstaple.

You can see what K’lee has been building for us HERE.

Now you can showcase your creative outpourings, it’s easy when you know how…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I gave you all carte blanche for your ideas on this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, leaving the field open for whatever creative images you wanted to showcase in our Christmas Eve post.

I knew I’d just end up mucking about with something for fun and I was right; I went for some festive abstraction.

I took a selection of shots of the decorations on our tree…

…and did some terrible things to them, to create these bespoke works of art.

K’lee will show you his random selection HERE, soon.

Now, it’s late, let’s see what you have to offer us…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For this week’s visit to the world of inspiringly improvised imagery, K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is taking its lead from K’lee, who gave us the prompt; From dreams to reality.

Now, that kind of theme is just asking for something wonderful and strange to happen, as any mention of dreams has me looking at everything through the filter of surrealism.

I’m not entirely sure what K’lee had in mind when he set the challenge, but I think my offerings have a suitably dreamlike quality to them, or maybe it’s a nightmare, you decide.

See what K’lee dreamed up HERE.

Now show us your phantasy photos.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I hope you all had a pleasant weekend, but now it’s Monday and time to attend to another installment of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee set the prompt this week, deciding on the dark and light theme of Shadows, shapes and silhouettes, leaving plenty of room for creativity and invention.

I chose a couple from the archives and one new shot, which I captured without having to venture outside the living room.

The first shadowy offering I have for you is the two dimensional representation of a lamp shade on the ceiling…

…followed by some silhouettes of, amongst other things, the old Barnstaple Long Bridge spanning the River Taw during an especially impressive sunset.

But my favourite is this composite image I made a few years ago, and not just because it features my beautiful wife, either…

…but because of something I only spotted when I was compiling this post, which fits into K’lee’s theme particularly well.

I had never noticed before yesterday, but there is a mysterious, shadowy figure, lurking in the background and now I can’t unsee it.

K’lee will throw some shapes and shadows at you, HERE, later.

Now it’s your turn to turn up the contrast.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Welcome to yet another Monday, made more bearable by the arrival of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, with an ephemeral theme set by my transatlantic counterpart, K’lee; Beautiful spirits of the natural world.

Well, as I pointed out on Friday, the weather didn’t seem very conducive to nature photography at the weekend, so I once again resorted to manufacturing a composite image to fit the bill.

Using several existing pictures, (carefully blended and painstakingly removed from their original backgrounds with fingertip erasing) I constructed this somewhat surreal little menagerie on Instow beach, which previously contained no animals or birds whatsoever.

Ever the literal thinker, I have also given them a slightly ethereal translucency, to fit with the “spirit” element of the prompt.

K’lee is HERE with his spirited contribution.

But now you can show us what you bought to the party…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Monday rolls round again, bringing with it the weekly burst of creativity that is K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week provided by K’lee and his prompt; Simply Surrealistic.

Well I was very happy to see K’lee’s post on Saturday, because there’s nothing I like more than a bit of weekend image manipulation, especially if it’s to make something strange.

The stranger the better, in fact.

So I took a photo of myself…

…one of a tree, just for some background…

…then, with some artistic mucking about, (and because there’s probably something wrong with me) I produced this:

It’s anyone’s guess what K’lee has come up with, but you can find out HERE.

Now you can show us how your imagination works…
