K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Welcome to yet another Monday, made more bearable by the arrival of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, with an ephemeral theme set by my transatlantic counterpart, K’lee; Beautiful spirits of the natural world.

Well, as I pointed out on Friday, the weather didn’t seem very conducive to nature photography at the weekend, so I once again resorted to manufacturing a composite image to fit the bill.

Using several existing pictures, (carefully blended and painstakingly removed from their original backgrounds with fingertip erasing) I constructed this somewhat surreal little menagerie on Instow beach, which previously contained no animals or birds whatsoever.

Ever the literal thinker, I have also given them a slightly ethereal translucency, to fit with the “spirit” element of the prompt.

K’lee is HERE with his spirited contribution.

But now you can show us what you bought to the party…

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.

K’lee chose the theme for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, picking one of his trademark “open to interpretation” prompts and encouraging us to capture; Pieces of a dream, in black and white.

Well, I think I’ve managed to meet K’lee’s brief with these four images.

Two are old favourites, to which I’ve added an extra layer of Twin Peaks-style black and white zigzags, reminiscent of The Black Lodge, the other two were made yesterday. Oh, and they all seem to contain eyes, I’m not sure why.

The new composite pictures were made from a landscape and a cloudscape, with elements of these four photos added to them.

So, here are my monochromatic dreamy offerings, I hope you like them.

You can see what K’lee dreamed up HERE.

But now let’s see what fantasies you captured for us.

Edit (19/07/18): I am adding an extra one, which I was mucking about with for this post and thought it fitted nicely with the prompt.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Welcome to an extremely colourful edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week curated by K’lee and based around his prompt; Cosmically created colour.

I had a flash of inspiration yesterday and took some photos of Audrey’s sand sculptures…

…along with some family portraits; then superimposed the latter over the former and carefully erased all the exposed skin, resulting in these brightly coloured and slightly surreal images.

You can find out what K’lee has to offer, HERE.

But now it’s time for you to add a splash of colour to our day.

Stream of Consciousness Sunday: Seasonal seasonings.

I’m cheating slightly for this week’s SoCS post, because I was never going to get round to writing anything today but I had a flash of inspiration after seeing Linda G Hill‘s prompt;

” “season.” Use the word “season,” add a suffix to it, or write about one. Bonus points if the first and last word of your post is a season or a seasoning. Extra bonus points if you have pictures.”

Seasons, huh?

That leaves all sorts of possibilities open to me, including making something seasonal (autumn leaves, as it happens) out of smoked paprika, cayenne pepper and turmeric, i.e. seasonings…
