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.

I confess to being a little short of inspiration for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, despite K’lee’s excellent prompt; Architecture digestif.

In the end I created a couple more imaginary buildings, made from a selection of the architectural styles around Barnstaple.

K’lee has constructed his post for you HERE.

Now it’s your turn to build on his prompt…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For this week’s post on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, K’lee gave us licence to mislead and misdirect with some illegitimate imagery, via his prompt; Just an illusion.

I felt this called for some comical mucking about, so I tried a bit of downscaling with a couple of Audrey’s toys and some fingertip erasing. I’m not sure how my head got stretched in the first shot, but I’m rather pleased with how the second one came out.

*edit to include me riding the bug (thanks, David)

K’lee will boggle your senses HERE later.

Now show us your tricks of the light, it couldn’t be easier to take part…

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.
