K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

It’s a pretty black and white affair this week on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, since the theme I picked was; Monochrome.

I thought I’d see what it would be like if I took black and white photos of something which I would usually be taking specifically for their colour; in this case, the garden, with a few bits of local architecture to add variety.

It’s amazing how the removal of colour helps you focus on the small details and contrasting textures, it was an interesting experiment.

K’lee will be throwing some shades of grey HERE and HERE.

Now it’s your turn to get monochromatic, you know how to do it…

Cosmic Photo prompt.

I’m in charge of providing you with a creative nudge in the direction of this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, so here’s the prompt I chose; Monochrome.

Simple, succinct and self-explanatory…or is it?

It’s entirely up to you, feel free to interpret the theme any way you damn well please, just be back here on Monday to show us the results.

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.

Time for another edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, themed by me this week with the prompt; Night.

Once again I sought inspiration in the garden, since the nights are warm at the moment and it’s nice to sit out there and enjoy the peace and quiet.

I took a few shots with a long exposure which came out rather well, including one slightly spooky self portrait.

K’lee steps out of the shadows to show you his wares HERE.

Now it’s your turn to shine a light on the darkness.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee left us with our weekly dose of inspiration for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge on Friday, choosing an illuminating subject to play with; Living in the light.

Straight away it occurred to me that I had a candidate for that concept, having visited a local church last weekend with Audrey, during the annual Pilton Green Man festival.

We went to see a friend of mine performing a musical set inspired by Hitchhikers’ Guide To The Galaxy, featuring extracts from the book and other space-themed tunes (see video clip below) and I snapped a couple of stained glass windows while we were there.

See how K’lee lights up our lives HERE.

Now you show us your bright ideas.

K’lee is in charge of inspiration on this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge and he has gone for something none of us could enjoy photography without: Living in the light.

So use some illumination to inform your imaginative imagery for Monday’s post and have a wonderful weekend.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I’m at the helm of this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge post, having asked you to get Up close and personal for your weekend’s homework.

As usual I had nothing specific in mind when I set the theme, deciding to search outside for inspiration and it didn’t take long to arrive.

I was sitting having a coffee in the sunshine yesterday morning and noticed a few seed pods on the table, from one of the many trees which overhang the back of our garden, like this one…

…which isn’t unusual, so I didn’t pay it any attention, although there was something slightly different about this particular seed.

Again, nothing all that unusual, certainly not worth investigating any more closely…until it moved.

On its own.

I was also playing with some new editing apps at the weekend and I made this rather effective image, bringing all the flower borders in very close indeed, to form a lush little “garden planet”.

K’lee gets just close enough for comfort HERE, go check him out.

Now it’s your chance to shine.
