The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

It’s another lovely day at the end of the world and here we are again, documenting it all with pictures in The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I asked you to Pick a colour on Friday as a theme for today’s challenge, which I did…

…even though most of my three photos are different colours entirely.

Audrey and I went out for our government-allocated, daily hour of exercise on Saturday, which was when it occurred to me as it does every year, that yellow really is the accent colour of Spring, (yes, I know we’re officially in summertime now) so that’s the colour I picked.

I captured a bank packed with primroses, a picture postcard country cottage with bright yellow paintwork and a rather lovely panoramic shot including “a host of golden daffodils”, as Wordsworth would no doubt have described it.

It was only when I came to post them that I realised what a small percentage of my chosen images were actually yellow. Still I stand by my choices, but see what you think, did I meet the brief?

Which hues did you choose?

Let’s see your weekend homework, it’s easy to do…

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.

Monday, the day I show you mine and y’all show me yours, in The Cosmic Photo Challenge, for which I provided the following prompt; Spring has sprung.

Dodging the intermittent bad weather, Audrey and I took two walks at the weekend, one along the River Taw and one down a short stretch of the smaller Yeo valley where the river runs through the woods.

Now let’s see what seasonal treats you have in store for us…

Monday comes speeding back round again, bringing with it another edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, which this week is in turn brought to you by the prompt; Set in stone.

I have chosen some examples of the stonemason’s art in Barnstaple, taken on a stroll around town with Audrey yesterday.

Some of the old buildings here have featured on the challenge before, but these are all new photos, I hope you like them.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Time once again to dive into the fast flowing creative waters of The Cosmic Photo Challenge and see what wonders we can discover beneath that shimmering surface.

This week I asked you to theme your post around the prompt; The dark and the light, however you choose to interpret that concept.

I went with the idea of composite duality, (a fancy term I just this moment invented) using careful editing to show negative cutaways of colour photos.

I was very pleased how these came out, so I continued mucking about until I stumbled on the weird optical illusion below.

Both of these side-by-side photos of a slate wall are exactly the same image, the only difference is the colour inversion. There has been no change in size, shape or angle in any way, yet somehow…

The final flash of inspiration came from the same door that has already featured in several challenge posts, reconstructed from two differently illuminated shots; one lit from inside the kitchen and one with the kitchen dark and the light on in the living room.

Now it’s time for you to light up our lives with your contributions.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Welcome, everyone, to this revamped edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, (as it will be known pending K’lee’s return) complete with a new badge for you to add to your weekly challenge posts should you feel inclined.

On Friday I set a simple theme of; From above, a mission I accomplished on a trip into town with Audrey on Saturday, when the two of us scaled the Barnstaple Castle Mound to eat our lunchtime pasties and take in the rather blustery view.

So here are some shots of the town and surrounding landscape (and Audrey) from above, the sides of the river valley in which Barnstaple stands just visible in the distance.

What did you cast your camera eye over for this week’s show and tell?

Let’s see what you found, it’s easy when you know how…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

My turn to provide the creative inspiration for this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge and I set you the task of coming up with some; Nature as art.

I created three abstract pieces, from photos of trees, pampas grass, roses and carnations.

See what you think.

K’lee flexes his artistic muscles HERE.

Now you can show us what natural wonders you captured over the weekend.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Hello and apologies for the lateness of the hour, I’ve been run off my feet today and have hardly had time to eat, let alone compose this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge post. But I’m here now and ready to give my contribution to K’lee’s prompt; Textures in my life.

I kept it simple and picked half a dozen images in the vicinity of my immediate daily life:

A couple of contrasting plants on the kitchen windowsill; one of this weekend’s batch of my homemade muffins (cranberry, goji berry, sunflower seed, lemon and cornmeal, recipe on request, should you be interested); a pebble-dashed wall, with varied focus, giving a soft and hard texture in one photo; some aluminium swarf from inside the CNC machine at work, and the rubber safety mat in front of it.

edit: an extra, mucked about with image, inspired by David’s comment.

You can see what K’lee has got up his sleeve HERE and it’s impressive, too.

Now show us how your world is textured.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Hello and welcome to another wonderful Monday…!

Oh, alright, let’s get on with K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge and maybe the week will fly past that little bit quicker.

I gave you a simple theme to play with on Friday; Look up. So I did just that, capturing a very colourful sunset and a couple of long exposure test shots of the starry sky last night. I intend to continue experimenting with that in the near future, as I’d like to see how I do with moon shots. Watch this (outer) space…

K’lee will give you something to look up to HERE.

And now you can show us what you brought to the party.
