The Cosmic Photo Challenge

Friday’s lack of inspiration carried over into the weekend, so this week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is less spectacular than usual, featuring as it does; Ordinary everyday objects.

Among the objects I ordinarily see every day are ornaments in the living room – gifts from various friends and a clay lion Audrey made – along with the string lattice lampshades, with which I made some interesting abstract art.

What caught your eye around the house at the weekend, let’s have a look…?

Good morning everyone, I hope your Monday is going as planned so far, welcome to The Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week prompted by the theme; Houseplants.

I’ll be honest, it was a spur of the moment suggestion when I realised I’d missed even my usually late deadline for Friday’s Saturday’s post, but I’m quite pleased with the photos I captured of our indoor greenery, including one “artistic interpretation”.

Now let’s see the results of your search for vegetation to visualise, it’s easy to do…

Today’s edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge is entirely your call, because the prompt was; Freestyle.

I have a few random images from the last week to offer you, starting with a rather obliging small tortoiseshell butterfly, which posed long enough for me to get a nice close-up…

…followed by an interesting view of a spider in the shed and a shot of the local crows coming home to roost.

Then we come to the inevitable mucking about section; starting with a composite image of three lucky consecutive shots of a squirrel I captured, as he jumped out of the flowerbed…

…and ending with an edited version of a simple photo of my reflection in an empty picture frame.

Now I’m keen to see what you have in store for us this week, so let’s have a look, don’t be shy.

For today’s edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, I asked you to capture your photos; Out in the country.

I nearly lost my gamble with the weather by waiting until Sunday to go out taking pictures, but I managed to dodge the showers for long enough to plod up Codden Hill.

I took in the spectacular views (five counties are visible on a clear day) from the foot of the memorial Jeremy Thorpe erected to his wife, Caroline in 1971, which you can share by watching the short video below.

Where did your search for rural photographic inspiration take you at the weekend?

Good evening, I hope your Friday is winding down acceptably.

Before we get to today’s prompt for The Cosmic Photo Challenge I’d like to make a small announcement…

So, to the theme for Monday’s post, I’d like you to please provide images based on the prompt; From the inside.

Hi there, welcome to Monday and also to The Cosmic Photo Challenge, which this week is all about what happens when you; Drain the colours.

I chose to showcase the *lack of* beautiful colours of some of the flowers in the garden.

But before that…

…I have been posting my challenge photos on Photo Sans Frontieres on Facebook, where I have recently encouraged group members to get involved. Well I am happy to say that this week I can include a fabulous shot of a cast-off dragonfly skin (known as the exuvia) from new member, Clive Wilson.

Now let’s see your monochromatic offerings…

For your mission on The Cosmic Photo Challenge this week, I asked you to provide images based on the theme of; Reflections.

The reason I chose this prompt was because I had the dubious pleasure of putting together a large and complicated self-assembly wardrobe in Audrey’s fairly small bedroom last week, which features two equally large mirrored sliding doors.

Anyway, having spent all that time and effort (and swearing) building the thing, I thought I may as well take advantage of the new wall of mirrors to capture some interesting pictures.

Using Audrey’s various small make-up mirrors and her fancy mood lighting, I managed to create some agreeably head-scratching optical puzzles with my one phone and no editing,

Did the weekend catch you in reflective mood, show us your results, don’t be shy…

Good morn-ternoo-vening to you, wherever you may be and welcome to The Cosmic Photo Challenge for this Monday, themed around the prompt; From an unusual angle.

My initial photos were of creepy crawlies in the garden and some nice raindrops on roses (one of Julie Andrews’ favourite things, apparently) until the distorting effect of the glass in kitchen door caught my eye.

I took several shots of myself from various angles without, and I would like to stress this, without pulling any silly faces at all. The results are, nonetheless, troubling…

What interesting perspective did you bring to the challenge this week? Let us see your personal spin on the prompt, it couldn’t be easier…

For your inspiration on The Cosmic Photo Challenge this week, I’m returning to a prompt which led to some interesting results on previous occasions; From an unusual angle.

Which means the world is your proverbial bivalve mollusc, providing said mollusc is viewed from a surprising perspective of course.

Enjoy your weekend and good luck with finding new ways to look at life, see you on Monday.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For today on The Cosmic Photo Challenge, I asked you to concentrate your creative talents on the prompt; Inversions.

I had no clear idea what I was going to do, just that it would involve some digital mucking about and it turned out to be…interesting.

Would it look strange if flowers and clouds changed places? Or if rivers swapped their traditional home for a more confined life on land? Could you fit a forest inside a church?

The answers to these somewhat unusual questions are now available, should you be the inquisitive sort…

Now let’s see your topsy turvy attempts to meet this week’s challenge…
