The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

On Friday for The Cosmic Photo Challenge, I asked you to provide your own interpretation of my inspiration; Vertical.

I have taken a very loose guide from the prompt; capturing images on a short walk yesterday morning which are either of vertical things, from vertical things, or at a vertical angle, plus a bit of creative mucking about.

Walls, walking, fences, bridges, hedges and selfies, it’s amazing what you can squeeze out of a simple one word theme.

Where did the directions lead you over the weekend?

Come on, I’ve shown you mine, now show me yours…

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For this week’s edition of the photographic imaginarium which is The Cosmic Photo Challenge, I asked you to provide us with some pictures that satisfied the simple prompt; Inversions.

Upside down, inside out, back to front and the wrong way round, it’s amazing how much of a difference it can make to an image with just one or two elements reversed.

Take faces, for example, how would it look if you turned just the eyes and mouth upside down..?

…well, no, fair enough, maybe not that.

How about inverting the colour of a photo, then overlaying it with the original, then painstakingly erasing parts of one of them to make surreal juxtapositions?

Yeah, ok, let’s try that instead.

What did your visual adventures turn up this week? Show us your haul, we’d love to see…

Good morning, welcome to Monday.

There will be an exciting announcement coming later today, but for now it’s time to turn our attention to The Cosmic Photo Challenge and the prompt I left you to mull over at the weekend; The everyday into the unusual.

I dropped my glasses onto my Audrey Hepburn cushion on the way to the shower yesterday and this was what I saw on my return…

…which reminded me of this sacrilegious but amusing defacement I made a couple of weeks ago.

After that, I got a bit carried away.

I took a handful of perfectly ordinary images from recent photo outings…

…and did a lot of peculiar things to them until they looked like this.

How did you get on with meeting this week’s challenge, we’re all dying to know..?

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Hello there, I hope your weekend went well and that (at least in the UK) you are enjoying this extra day off, complete with glorious sunshine.

This week’s prompt was; An interesting perspective, which can be taken a number of ways. Whether you define it as intentionally looking at things from an interesting angle, simply seeing them from an unusual standpoint, or creating intriguing perspectives yourselves, all your ideas are welcome.

I’m a little later than usual posting today, because I chose to wait until this morning to go hunting for photographic inspiration. I got up early before there were too many people around and drove up onto the hills overlooking the river valley in which Barnstable sits, to capture some images of the wind farm.

I also got some shots from a road bridge across the River Taw, usually a little dangerous to negotiate at peak traffic times, along with a selection from the countryside beneath the turbines.

Oh, and some cows, just because.

Now let’s see your slant on the theme…

This week on The Cosmic Photo Challenge I asked you to illustrate the prompt; Choose your masks.

Chosen partly because masks are very topical right now, partly because I was staring at a mask on the wall while I was thinking up the prompt, partly because I’d just ordered a very funky LED face mask for Audrey’s birthday and partly so I could crowbar in a great bit of psychedelic space rock at the end of this post, it resulted in the following photographic offerings.

One of my collection of face coverings inspired a few images…

…while Audrey and her birthday present provided the terpsichorean illumination with which to do some light painting.

And to play us out, as promised, here’s Hawkwind with “Choose Your Masques”

Now let’s take a peek behind your mask…

This week’s theme on The Cosmic Photo Challenge was set with no particular subject in mind, but with an idea how to execute the brief; A splash of colour.

I did a lot of careful fingertip erasing to achieve these eye-catching images, a few of blooms in the garden and our very own Audrey Rose ensconced in the floofy comfort of her armchair IT suite.

Now it’s your turn to bring some colour into our lives. Go on, you know you want to…

Welcome to another week and another edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, which is brought to you by the theme of; Collages.

I have once more gone for the unusual end of the creative spectrum, with this slightly off the wall composition.

Where did your inspiration take you over the weekend, show us your offerings…

Hello and welcome to a place both wonderful and strange, The Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week brought to you by the theme of; Surrealism.

Yesterday I spent a relaxing, Zen-like hour or so, carefully and precisely photographing, editing, positioning and erasing images, to produce the cryptic masterpiece you see before you.

So, what peculiar delights do you have to show us this week?

Hello and welcome to a slightly later than usual, bank holiday edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, brought to you today by the prompt; Geometric shapes.

I have to admit to not being very prepared this week, so I got creative this morning with a Twin Peaks’ Black Lodge floor-themed mug…

…which I used as a counterpoint to various patterned surfaces in and around the house to make these abstract artworks.

Were you more organised than me this week?

Show off the fruits of your photographic labours and let us all in on the fun…
