K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

We’re turning the prompt on its head this week, per my suggestion that your entries for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge fall under the loose definition of; Upside down.

Whether you choose to capture an object which is, itself, the wrong way up, invert an existing image, or any combination of the two, it’s all fine with us.

I’ve chosen to use the reflective properties of the River Taw to provide a trio of optical double-takes for you to ponder.

You can reflect on K’lee’s overturned Obzervashuns HERE.

Now, however, it’s time for you to expose your exhibits for our enlightenment.

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.

For this week’s adventure in imagery, K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge asked you to do some duplication, for K’lee’s prompt; Double the expression through double exposure.

This sounded like fun to me straight away, because I love a bit of mucking about and Audrey is always keen to star in challenge posts, so we went for a bike ride around the local park and did some panoramic experiments.

These weren’t created in the strictest sense of a “double exposure”, because they were taken in one slow pan, with Audrey running round behind me to change position, but the result is the same.

We also did a bit of an experiment with those fancy 360° 3D photo thingies you see on Facebook and Pinterest, except ours aren’t sweeping panoramas of cathedrals or tropical waterfalls; they are of Audrey playing pool in the pub and following herself around the living room.

You need to click each link to view it, then slowly scroll round or move your phone to explore.

***FOUR-DREY***

***POOL***

***AT HOME***

After that, I had another idea, while looking through the rippled glass of the door into our kitchen.

This is another example of not-really-double-exposure, but it kind of falls into the same category; in that it’s two photos of the same thing (in this case, me) taken separately, then stuck together again.

I took an ordinary, boring selfie, then took another, but this time through the aforementioned glass door.

Then I created this rather Magritte-like composite image, which I think came out quite well.

K’lee’s suitably artistic offering awaits you, HERE.

But now it’s time for you to share your double visions with us.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

It was only after I set the prompt for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge that I realised; I wasn’t quite so spoilt for choice as I’d originally thought, when it came to finding examples of The onset of autumn.

I like to create something original whenever I can, without trawling the archives too much, (even though I did feature the same trees in a previous post) so I made a new piece of art, too.

These sycamore trees are just beginning to get their dramatic red plumage…

…and this handful of leaves from the garden…

…was transformed into a work of autumnal art.

See what K’lee leaves us, HERE.

Now it’s time for you to show us your seasonal offerings.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Today’s theme on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge was chosen by K’lee and his prompt was perfect for me, as I have a huge number of pictures which fit the description of; Wings across the skies.

The weekend weather was so utterly lousy; any suitably avian subjects were probably trying to find a perch to cling onto, far too busy to pose for photos.

So I picked a couple of archive images which I liked and made an “artistic” one, too. See what you think.

See what flights of fancy K’lee has dreamed up, HERE, later.

But for now, let’s see what ornithological optical offerings you organised for us…

Cosmic Photo prompt.

Apologies for the slightly tardy prompt, K’lee didn’t post the theme for Monday’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge until last night and I’ve been at work since stupid o’clock this morning.

But now I’m here, I’ll tell you that K’lee decided on; Wings across the skies.

That seems to be a fairly straightforward one for a change, so get out there and capture some avian or aviator-based snaps to start the week.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

We are getting in amongst the undergrowth for this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, since I set the theme of Creepy Crawlies on Friday, encouraging y’all to get some entomological specimens for us to study.

I saw a spider and a fly, dangerously close together on a clematis in the garden…

…but I had more success with our newly blooming pink sedum, where I got a few nice shots of a busy honey bee and a tiny hover fly, to which I added a few from the archives; a lily beetle, a fearsome looking scorpion and the impressive but harmless hornet moth.

K’lee brings you his insectile interpretation of the prompt HERE.

But now let’s see what the great hive mind has to offer…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

When K’lee set the theme for today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, I thought I was going to be a bit stumped, because he gave us the prompt; Get your motors running; Cool cars that caught your eye.

Now I’m not really a car person, so it left me at a loss for inspiration, so I cheated.

I used cars you can’t see.

I have done experiments with cars and light painting before, but this time I’ve added a little movement to the process.

I went out and took a few long exposure shots of passing traffic; some from parked at the side of the road, some from looking down on the lights, standing on a bridge and a couple with the camera lying on the dashboard as I drove home.

I also made a little gif to show the creative process in action.

K’lee will speed his pictures to you HERE, later.

Now you can show us what you’ve got to offer…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Time to get wet for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, using my prompt from Friday to direct the flow of inspiration; The look of liquid.

I had no idea what I would do with that, it just popped into my head, but I managed to capture a couple of new shots, along with a few from the archives.

Here’s two of water in the wild, so to speak…

…and a couple of digital water sculptures.

Followed by these two new shots of me splashing about in the kitchen.

You can see K’lee’s moisterpieces HERE later.

But now it’s time to show us yours.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

This week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is brought to you by another of K’lee’s open-to-interpretation prompts, which asked us to look for anything that was; Hiding in plain sight: Photo elements you might have missed.

Although this seemed like an interesting concept to begin with, I was soon stumped for ideas because, well, how would you know if you’d missed something?

So I started scrolling through the thousands of images in my Google Photos album, looking for inspiration, hoping something would magically jump out at me.

After half an hour of fruitless searching I was about ready to give up and Photoshop a random duck into a landscape photo, or add Audrey to a crowd scene like a female Where’s Wally impersonator, when an old picture of her wearing my sunglasses scrolled past.

Aha! Mirrored lenses, they’re always handy for unusual reflections.

And I was not disappointed because, if you zoom in you can see, not only me taking the photo, but a shadow of me doing so, cast by the sun on the wall to my left.

Which just goes to show, there’s often more to the picture than meets the eye.

K’lee will point out his seen-but-not-seen puzzle for you HERE.

Now it’s your turn to uncover some photographic phantoms for us.
