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…

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Sorry I’m late posting today’s installment of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, it must be the upcoming zombie apocalypse making me forgetful.

I gave you the prompt of Inside on Friday, since we’re all spending a lot of time involuntarily incarcerated at the moment, but I did manage to get out in the garden during yesterday’s sunny weather.

The inside of a fritillary, an obelisk covered in clematis, an internal view of a bamboo clump and the sky outside on the inside of my coffee cup…

Did you get out and about, or were you internalising at the weekend?

Let’s see what you captured.

In the strange times we are currently living through, I thought it appropriate to make the prompt for this week’s edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge something we’re all going be seeing a lot of for the foreseeable future; Inside.

This doesn’t have to be indoors, necessarily, if you are fortunate enough to be able to get out and about safely. But your contributions should feature the inside of something, whether it’s in the great outdoors or not.

I sincerely hope you’re all keeping yourselves and those around you safe and well. Be good to each other and look after the vulnerable where it’s possible, and I’ll see you back here for our usual, contact-free meeting of like minds on Monday.
