K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Welcome to K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, I trust your week has started off successfully.

I have a day off again today, because my boss was hassling me to book some holiday last week, (they get twitchy if you have too many hours left to take, in case you suddenly want to take time off when they’re busy) so I took advantage of the holiday lull after the Easter break and booked a couple of days.

None of which is especially relevant, except for the fact that it’s all about today’s prompt; Time.

I didn’t know what I’d do with this theme when I set it, it just seemed a nice broad concept to interpret with a picture and, as it happens, I am only presenting one photo for your consideration this week; my homage to the great Salvador Dali’s The Persistence of Memory.

I’m rather pleased with it and you’ll have to take my word for it that it took longer than you’d think to get it just right.

K’lee will take the time to show you the fruits of his labours HERE.

But now you can show us what moments you captured for us.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Welcome to an extremely colourful edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week curated by K’lee and based around his prompt; Cosmically created colour.

I had a flash of inspiration yesterday and took some photos of Audrey’s sand sculptures…

…along with some family portraits; then superimposed the latter over the former and carefully erased all the exposed skin, resulting in these brightly coloured and slightly surreal images.

You can find out what K’lee has to offer, HERE.

But now it’s time for you to add a splash of colour to our day.

Hello everyone, I hope you’re enjoying a pleasant bank holiday Monday (if you get one, that is) or are at least having a successful start to the working week.

I set the theme for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge this week and I decided to go for the obvious topical prompt, with a monochromatic twist; Easter in black and white.

For today’s challenge, Audrey wanted to get involved, only fair when you realise it was her Easter gifts that are the stars of the post.

So here are a couple of shots from yesterday’s celebrations, with Audrey providing the peculiar facial poses (I think the second one is a rabbit impression, to match the chocolate truffle carrots she had for breakfast)…

…along with these two little clips (yes I know, they’re in colour, sorry) we made using the STIKBOT figures and app which Audrey got for Easter.

May I present The Chick Dance

…and One Man And His Zombie Dog.

I’m sure K’lee will have something wonderful for you HERE.

But now it’s time to see your Easter treats.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Hello again, welcome to a new week, with all the light and shade it will bring, starting with today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, the prompt for which was chosen by K’lee; Notions of shadow and light.

I chose to seek inspiration in our flat and out in the garden, just to see if I could find suitable subjects in such a limited space.

From the garden I harvested these three images; the tangled white bones of a clematis, where the shadow and actual plant are almost indistinguishable against the shed…

…the snake-like shadow of an ornamental solar light…

…and the striped pattern formed by the sun shining through the tines of a rake.

Indoors, though, that was where I spotted my favourite bit of shadow play, which I christened “When the reflection escapes the mirror”.

The original looked so good that I updated it from a slightly more artistic angle, by which time the plant (a dahlia, which was lifted from the garden and has spent the winter inside in the warm, only sprouting new shoots the other day) had grown somewhat.

See for yourself.

*edit: I went out last night and caught these two extra shots on the way home.

See what shadowy shots K’lee brings to the party, HERE.

Now you can throw some shade our way.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Time to start the week with K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, although not in quite the same way I originally had in mind.

It looks like I might have spoken too soon when I set the prompt; A hint of Spring, because the snow returned in full force at the weekend, covering all the newly-bloomed Spring flowers in the garden and carried on right through until Sunday night.

The gnome house had a new roof and the daffodils looked a bit worse for wear…

…but I thought even their wilting blooms could add a suitable splash of colour to some artistic creations I made from the snow covered trees that overhang the garden.

After all that digital mucking about, I got absorbed in the creative process and ended up making several more, two of which appear here.

You’ll be able to see the rest over at Photo Sans Frontiers, and don’t forget to check out K’lee’s post HERE.

But now, were there any signs of Spring where you live?

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Monday rolls round again, bringing with it the weekly burst of creativity that is K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week provided by K’lee and his prompt; Simply Surrealistic.

Well I was very happy to see K’lee’s post on Saturday, because there’s nothing I like more than a bit of weekend image manipulation, especially if it’s to make something strange.

The stranger the better, in fact.

So I took a photo of myself…

…one of a tree, just for some background…

…then, with some artistic mucking about, (and because there’s probably something wrong with me) I produced this:

It’s anyone’s guess what K’lee has come up with, but you can find out HERE.

Now you can show us how your imagination works…

Cosmic Photo prompt.

For this week’s prompt on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, chosen by K’lee, we are asking for something slightly strange.

I don’t mean the request is unusual, but the theme K’lee has picked is, in itself, not normal, because your mission for Monday’s post is to give us something; Simply Surrealistic.

That’s precisely the type of prompt I enjoy, so I’ll see you in a couple of days for some peculiar pictures.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Another week is upon us, meaning it’s time for another episode in the continuing saga of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week chaired by K’lee, who left us this multifaceted prompt; The beauty of wood, the gleam of metal and the reflection of glass.

That was quite a head-scratcher, I can tell you, at least it was until yesterday afternoon, when I spotted the perfect candidate for the metal and glass portion of the challenge; a copper window decoration with a blue glass ball in the centre, given to me by my sister many years ago.

And for the wooden element?

Well, Audrey and I went down to the park after lunch, where I found plenty of inspiration in the varying textures of tree bark and a nicely weathered fence post.

And to round off this post of threes, here is my third offering, a gif of my sister’s gift, a gift-gif, if you will.

You can see K’lee’s intriguing trio HERE.

But now it’s your turn to show us how you rose to the 3 in 1 challenge…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I set the theme for today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, knowing that I was getting up early for work yesterday and hoping I could capture something to do justice to the prompt; Break of day.

Well I wasn’t disappointed, because there was some suitably atmospheric fog adorning the Devon countryside on my drive home; with the imposing Castle Hill house and gardens, (Fortescue family seat, currently home to Lady Arran) providing a dramatic landmark amongst the rolling hills and ancient trees.

It certainly is worth getting up early sometimes, when the world is still waking up, you get to witness nature at its best.

See what K’lee has in store HERE.

Now it’s time for you early birds to show us what photographic worms you caught for us…
