Cosmic Photo prompt.

I’m terribly sorry for the lateness of the hour again, I wasn’t paying attention.

This week’s adventure on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is chaired by K’lee and his prompt for the week’s challenge is…challenging; If you could see into the heart of me.

I like it, but I don’t know what I’ll do with it yet, how about you..?

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I set the theme for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, asking you to get out among the public and do some; Street photography.

I’m choosing to include all public places in my interpretation of that term, focusing on candid, un-posed photos of people enjoying an afternoon drink in the sunshine of a pub garden. This kind of picture seems to capture a millisecond of life far better than any expensive, stiffly formal family portrait ever could and that’s what makes them so fascinating, I think.

I decided to go with all black and white images for this week’s post, with a little bit of extra digital fiddling for effect.

See what K’lee has in store HERE.

Now give us the fruits of your photographic labours.

For this week’s nudge in the general direction of inspiration, it’s my turn to give K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge its theme and I’ve chosen to repeat a prompt we’ve had before: Street photography.

That gives you almost unlimited scope; whether you capture something candid and spontaneous in the city centre, snap a weed growing between paving slabs in a tiny village, or click your camera at a comatose commuter on the train.

All life is here and waiting to be documented in Monday’s post.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is brought to you by K’lee and his prompt; State of independence.

Clearly inspired by the fact that Thursday is July 4th and Independence Day across the pond, I chose to once again utilise Audrey as my model and transform her into an American icon.

It also seems fitting, as she is about to embark on the Big Adventure at a new school in September and is rapidly becoming a confident and independent young lady.

So, with a couple of homemade accessories, I made her into Lady Liberty for the day and I think you’ll agree she carries it off rather well.

Some cardboard, scissors and tape was all I needed to produce a crown and torch…

…to give the proper gravitas to my human statue.

Then, with a little editing magic, I placed her in Instow, to guard the entrance to the harbour.

After that, I got artistic and created these two artworks on the same theme.

Klee will show you the state of his creativity HERE.

Now you can impress us with your offerings.

It’s time for K’lee to provide you with your weekly prod in the direction of creativity, on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge. This week, he has picked something which ties into a special day coming up on his side of the Atlantic; A state of independence.

Think you can come up with anything inspired by that?

Yeah? Then let us see what your creative talents produce by joining in with the challenge.

It’s easy when you know how…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For today’s visual adventure on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, I asked you to show us some interesting buildings and I found a few at the weekend so I’ll show you mine if you’ll show me yours.

First, the imposing facade of Heanton Court, the pub and restaurant Audrey and I rode to on Saturday, along the Tarka Trail cycle path, for a spot of lunch.

Next, on the way home we explored the wooded borders of the riverside trail and discovered an overgrown stone building…

…which on closer inspection, turned out to be an old lime kiln.

Returning to Barnstaple along the river, I snapped two more, distinctly different styles of architecture; this old Victorian building complete with intact dovecote on the roof…

…and the sleek art deco lines of this old cinema (now a nightclub) , gleaming white in the sunshine.

Onwards to the town square and the “Three faced liar”, officially the Albert Memorial clock tower, but known by its nickname to locals due to three of the four clock faces consistently showing the wrong time.

As a bonus, I captured the newly updated graffiti mural under the tall concrete bridge on the river; Audrey loved the fire-breathing tiger.

And last week, Rhonda, Audrey and I set off on an early morning drive to central London, to renew Audrey’s passport at the hugely impressive new American Embassy in Vauxhall, so of course I snapped a couple of shots there, too.

K’lee builds on the theme HERE, but now you can show us yours.

It’s K’lee’s turn to provide the inspiration for this week’s foray into photographic fabulousness, on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, so why not see what you can do with this enigmatic gem; AN ANIME-TED LIFE!

See you back here as usual to start the week with a snap, so to speak.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I have to admit that I rather stumped myself with the theme for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, leaving me to pick a selection of mouth-watering delicacies to illustrate the prompt; Eat, drink and be merry.

Rhonda is a fabulous cook, particularly on the barbeque grill, while Audrey and I are both enthusiastic consumers; so I have many shots of food, along with quite a few of us devouring it.

From a rolled pork loin cooked on the grill, stuffed with mushrooms, onions, garden herbs and garlic…

…to one of my very favourite examples of Rhonda’s traditional American cooking; biscuits and gravy…

…or how about one of mine and Audrey’s fully loaded pizzas, but you’ll have to be quick, they don’t last long.

Possibly the best single meal I’ve had in the last few months was the first time Rhonda made Philly cheese steak sandwiches, with homemade coleslaw and potato wedges. My stomach thought it had died and gone to culinary heaven.

And for dessert? How about a Twin Peaks themed cherry pie and a damn fine cup of black coffee.

I even found a picture of Audrey with her face painted to make it appear as though a fish was eating a hotdog.

And how could I leave out a shot of me “being merry” in my misspent youth.

Cheers!

K’lee’s scrumptious post is now ready to be served HERE.

But now it’s time to feast our eyes on your offerings for the week.
