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.

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.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Good morning/afternoon/evening to you, wherever you may be. This Monday’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is brought to you by my choice of prompt; Sparkle.

I hoped to capture the sunlight, gently glittering on the greeny blue waters of the river Taw on my stroll around the park yesterday; but the sun wasn’t at its brightest and and the river was rather muddy after the night’s rain, so the glittering was somewhat muted.

I did get one shot worth mucking about with, however, to which I have added a close up of the glitter on Rhonda’s Valentine card, along with a photo of a slightly more sparkly day by the river.

Not my finest work, I’ll be the first to admit, but I can only work with what I’ve got. I’m sure K’lee will provide you with something suitably fabulous later.

Now, let’s see what you captured for us…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

It’s time once again to fire up your imaginations and get creative for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, which today revolves around a theme of my choice.

I specifically asked you to use some form of post-production effects for this week’s challenge, because that is what we like here and I’ve noticed that some of you shy away from using all but the most basic adjustments to your original photos.

Plus, I have a guest contributor this week, so I also wanted to be able to crowbar his pictures in.

I’ve gone for some more abstract images, produced using photos of industrial components as the source material.

The next selection are from my old friend and esteemed blog artist-in-residence, Ho, who sent me these colourful and artistic contributions last week.

So, there you have it.

KG left us this.

Lady Lee Manila offers these for your perusal.

And K’lee’s photo is HERE, for your viewing pleasure.
Now, show us the fruits of your creative labours…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Good morning everyone, I hope you had a nice relaxing weekend and that K’lee’s prompt of Black and white landscapes gave you plenty of inspiration for today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Fortunately it was a beautiful day yesterday, so I ventured out onto the windy hillsides above the Taw valley, up to the Fullabrook Down wind farm, where the majestic structures of the wind turbines add an extra presence to the landscape.

I got some fine shots of the low morning sun, shining across the wooded valley and I mucked about with some long exposure shots of the turbine blades in motion (more of which can be seen over at Photo Sans Frontiers) giving them a dandelion-like appearance:

And just because I can, another gif:

Now it’s time for you to show us what you’ve come up with.

You can see K’lee’s photo HERE.

Light morphing…

Cosmic Photo redux…

Photo Sans Frontiers

For one of my recent contributions to the weeklyCosmic Photo Challenge onDiary of an Internet Nobody,I capturedsome car light trails and today I decided to use them for another abstract art experiment.

The glowing nature of the original images made for excellent source material, resulting in some rather awesome light sculptures, I hope you like them.

Well, I’ve got to find something to do on my day off.

More experiments with light painting…

Rainbows and glitter from Photo Sans Frontiers…

Photo Sans Frontiers

Having found Audrey’s colour changing glitter lamps useful for making the gif in this week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, I decided to see what sort of images I could get by using them for light painting.

So last night I shut myself in a dark room for half an hour and these gloriously vibrant creations are the result…




(Yes, I know the “y” is backwards, I got confused, ok.)

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Good afternoon and welcome to a bank holiday edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, today determined by K’lee’s choice of theme; Circles.

I decided to go the simple route this week and use something we’ve been waiting for in the garden for some time; the first of our sunflowers to bloom.

Here are some circles within circles.

And here is where you can find K’lee’s photo for the day.

Right then, let’s see what you have to offer…
