K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

For this week’s installment of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, K’lee chose the theme and he suggested; Mirror mirror.

I decided to go for an artistic twist, using two different types of kaleidoscopic optical devices to capture some spangly images.

The first one is a homemade version of the conventional kaleidoscope; a tube containing two angled mirrors, with a glass tube of glitter and foil shapes at the end of it, which produced these…

…and the second one is of a similar design, except it has a domed lens on the end, giving multiple, fish eyed images of whatever you point it at.

Here is what it looks like when you point it at cauliflower and carrots, ceramic tiles and an LED display.

You can check out K’lee’s post HERE.

Now let’s see what you reflected on over the weekend.

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.

Cosmic Photo prompt…

It’s another Saturday prompt for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, because K’lee got blacked out by a power cut until late last night and couldn’t post, but here is his theme for the week, better late than never; Mirror mirror.

So get creative and show us some reflective images for Monday’s post.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Today’s bank holiday edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge should be child’s play, because I chose the theme of; Toys.

I thought it was only fitting that I got input from the person who the toys belonged to, so Audrey provided Instagram shots of some of the ones she found most photogenic, whereas I…well, I did some strange things with dolls’ heads.

You have been warned.

First, Audrey’s artistic interpretations, from small (and not so small) stuffed animals, to a Scooby Doo monster and some sort of hopping rabbit/chick hybrid.

And now my contribution. I started off with some dolls like these…

…then, as if dolls’ heads weren’t weird enough, I did this to them:

I hope that wasn’t too traumatic for you, check out something less unnerving from K’lee HERE.
But now it’s time for you to come out to play.

As an extra holiday bonus for you, here’s the excellent movie, The Magic Toyshop.

Cosmic Photo prompt…


The first long weekend of the year and it’s time for your prompt for Monday’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week chosen by me.I’m going to be childish for today’s theme and go with; Toys.

Any plaything will do, whether it’s dolls, stuffed animals, model aeroplanes, “executive” toys for adults, or any object that has only one purpose; to entertain, amuse or enchant the child that lives in all of us.

Cosmic Photo prompt…

It’s prompt time again, for Monday’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge. Actually it’s way past time for it, (again) so I apologise for leaving you with less preparation time than usual to work on K’lee’s theme for the week, which is; Foodie for a day.

Photos of food, it couldn’t be simpler than that. Although K’lee did add a small caveat;

“Food shot indoors at home win extra points for coolness…


So, there you have it. ‘Foodie For a Day’. Photos of food at home preferably, but if not just go for creative food expressions. Dale and I will still think you’re cool!”

We will, indeed.
Thanks K’lee.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Apologies for the late post, I’ve had a problem with my new varifocal glasses and haven’t been able to see my phone until now.
But I’m here now and refocused on today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge so let’s get to it.

I set the theme; From an unusual angle, without really thinking what I was going to do and initially came up with an interior view of our abalone wind chimes and the tunnel-like loops of a spiral bound notebook, which are ok, but lack a certain something…

…but then I had a flash of inspiration and, after ten minutes mucking about, trying to balance my phone on top of our stainless steel coffee press, this happened:

That’s more…Cosmic. Much better.

K’lee’s post is now HERE 

And now it’s your turn.

Cosmic Photo prompt…

Before we come to the final post in my March marathon, it’s time for the small matter of this week’s prompt for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week with a theme chosen by me.

I’ve gone with something that gives you almost unlimited scope for creativity, because you can submit a photo of anything at all, as long as it is; From an unusual angle.

So get your photographic groove on and keep us guessing with some peculiar perspectives for Monday’s post.
