The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Hello there, I’m told it’s Monday, which must mean it’s time for The Cosmic Photo Challenge and a hearty plateful of Food as art.

I chose to go with a single image this week, nutritiously constructed in the kitchen from strawberries, cherry tomatoes, cucumber and French beans; here’s my field of fruit and veg flowers.

How were you inspired by the challenge over the weekend? Let us all have a look, leave your link in the comments.

I’m going to take a guess and say it’s Friday today, meaning that it’s time for your weekly prod in the direction of creativity for The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Right then, I have to come up with another suitable theme to inspire a locked down population…hmmmm, how about; Food as art.

Yeah, that seems like something which gives everyone an opportunity to compete on a level playing field (an indoor one, of course).

So cook up something tasty for us over the weekend and bring your offerings up to the high table on Monday.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For today’s apaturial adventure, I asked you to come up with something for The Cosmic Photo Challenge which featured something Symmetrical.

Well, not being able to get out and about much, I spent time making a few imaginary buildings and pictures with a mirrored element to them.

Now it’s your turn to show us what kind of symmetry you captured over the weekend.

Today’s prompt for the Cosmic Photo Challenge is one with plenty of room for interpretation; Symmetrical.

There, it couldn’t be much simpler than that, could it?

So as long as your photos for Monday’s post exhibit some kind of symmetry, then they qualify; whether it’s organic, manmade, geometric, architectural, naturalistic or artistic, it matters not one jot.

Have a lovely weekend and show us your snaps to start yet another new week of seclusion.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

On Friday I asked you to consider the birds and bees as your homework for this week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge and I chose to go on miniature safari in the garden.

I’d been wanting to try out the macro abilities of my new camera for a while and the buzzing of insects in the sunshine gave me the perfect excuse. I staked out the daffodils and spikes of purple bugle flowers and took a few shots of the inhabitants, until a compliant and extremely fuzzy bumble came along and I followed his progress until he fell asleep, nonchalantly dangling by one leg, snoring gently.

What photographic delights did the Easter weekend provide for you?

It’s as easy as a bee see to take part…

Time for your weekend stay-at-homework, with this week’s prompt on the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Since we’re largely confined to quarters for the foreseeable future, but the weather (here in the UK, anyway) has been so superb, I thought I’d go with something we can all find in our gardens, or at least our immediate vicinity; The birds and the bees.

I know we’ve had this theme before, but as I believe I said then, with all the varieties of our feathered friends and with all bees, bugs and creepy crawlies allowed, you have huge scope for subject matter.

So scour your gardens, window boxes, courtyards, rooftops and balconies and bring us some flighty sights to start next week.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Another lazy Monday in the strange, dystopian limbo that is global lockdown and The Cosmic Photo Challenge is here, to brighten your day and take your mind off all the bad news for a few minutes.

Here’s what I came up with after Friday’s prompt suggested we take this week’s photos; Through an opening.

The current isolation measures mean not having any outside space in which to relax would make life almost unbearable, so we’re increasingly grateful for the little oasis of calm in our crazy (and suddenly very small) world.

And that’s where I took my inspiration from yesterday, while sitting in the sunshine of the garden; looking out into the garden, from inside the house at night and capturing the sunshine from inside the shed; looking at the garden, unusually framed in the openings of Audrey’s bedroom window, looking down into a glass candle holder, looking into the entrance of a tiny birdhouse, seeing the nest materials within and looking out at myself through the openings in the clematis’ obelisk-shaped growing frame.

So that’s the opening salvo in this week’s challenge, let’s have a look at what you lot’ve got for us…

Hello again, my fellow internees, I hope your week has passed without serious incident and that y’all are in good health and positive spirits.

It’s time once more to furnish you with some inspiration for Monday’s regular post on The Cosmic Photo Challenge, by giving you another seclusion-friendly prompt to inform your images; Through an opening.

So, doorways, windows…necks of bottles, you get the idea. From one very definite place to another, is the gist, passing through some kind of threshold on the way.

That’ll give you something to do over the weekend unless, like my wife, you too are an essential key worker; in which case you probably have enough on your plate and we thank you for your service. Stay safe.

See you on Monday for the reveal post and in today’s not too distant future, for some more random vibes.

Watch this space…

Welcome back to the prompt section of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, in which I shall provide your inspirational theme for Monday’s photographic extravaganza.

More and more of us are having to remain on our own properties at the moment, if not completely indoors, so I will continue to give you prompts with very broad ranges of subject matter. This week I’m asking you to be true to a hue and; Pick a colour.

Yes, you can post photos of whatever you damn well like, just as long as all of your contributions conform to the same spectral position.

Let’s say three images minimum this week, since we all have a bit more time on our hands. That gives you shades to play with, too, within your main colour choice.

So get playful with the pigmentation and creative with the colourisation for The Cosmic Photo Challenge, it’s a piece of cake when you know how…
