K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

We had a little confusion over the prompt at the weekend, but we eventually provided you with two options for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge this week; Playing with light or The coming of winter/Winter’s breath.

I initially thought I’d go with some low winter sunshine…

…but when I got home, Rhonda and Audrey were decorating our newly-erected Christmas tree, so I decided to take inspiration from that and do some long exposure mucking about.

*edit: I could hardly let this evening’s spectacular sunset go by without capturing it for the challenge, too.

K’lee is HERE, getting all seasonal and glittery for you on the other side of the Atlantic.

But now you get to show us the light of your creativity.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I chose to go with a single image for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge this week, to illustrate K’lee’s theme of; What dreams may come.

It wasn’t any particular dream I had in mind, I just used a rather excellent surrealist sketch that Audrey drew last week and gave it a dreamlike makeover by adding it to a beach photo from a few weeks ago.

It came out quite well, I thought, see what you think.

K’lee will dream up something wonderful HERE later.

But now it’s your turn.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge

My suggestion for this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge was for you to find us some pictures that are; Spooky.

It was Halloween not long ago, so Audrey and I bought some window stickers for the living room and she posed with them to produce this rather disturbing image…

…which I have supplemented with these two creepy manipulated shots of me as a strange hooded figure.

See if K’lee manages to creep you out HERE.

Now it’s your turn to give us the shivers.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Hello and welcome to the start of a brand new week which, as ever, means another foray into the optical playground we call K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

This week our adventure is hosted by my transatlantic pal, K’lee, who gave us the creative prod of (to give it its full name); Cosmically circular/cosmically square.

I decided I would create a one-off digital artwork to meet K’lee’s brief, using this ordinary photo of the square tiles in our kitchen.

But that turned into two when, after a considerable amount of mucking about, I produced this rather fetching abstract image…

…which eventually morphed into this extremely cosmic masterpiece.

K’lee will put his round photographic peg in a square post HERE.

But for now it’s time for you to show us your curves and angles…

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.

Today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is brought to you by K’lee and his prompt; State of independence.

Clearly inspired by the fact that Thursday is July 4th and Independence Day across the pond, I chose to once again utilise Audrey as my model and transform her into an American icon.

It also seems fitting, as she is about to embark on the Big Adventure at a new school in September and is rapidly becoming a confident and independent young lady.

So, with a couple of homemade accessories, I made her into Lady Liberty for the day and I think you’ll agree she carries it off rather well.

Some cardboard, scissors and tape was all I needed to produce a crown and torch…

…to give the proper gravitas to my human statue.

Then, with a little editing magic, I placed her in Instow, to guard the entrance to the harbour.

After that, I got artistic and created these two artworks on the same theme.

Klee will show you the state of his creativity HERE.

Now you can impress us with your offerings.

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…
