K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Welcome to the first post of the year in K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, with my choice of theme this week; Upside down.

I have taken that idea literally and turned my photos the “wrong” way up.

For possibly the third or fourth time on the challenge, our living room ceiling lights caught my attention, this time because of their possible use when inverted.

How about a stick man standing under a street light?

Then Audrey volunteered herself as a model and we created this hair-raising portrait…

…but then things got a bit, well, twisted.

K’lee’s post turns another world over for you, HERE.

Meanwhile, it’s time for your first flipped snaps of the year, so let’s see ’em…

Cosmic Photo prompt.

Ok, I think we’re suffering from new year confusion this week on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, but we’ll be right back with it next week, I promise.

I am taking on the role of prompt master again today, because of a little communication breakdown with my transatlantic pal, K’lee, (probably my fault) after we both posted last week…so your theme is; Upside down.

No, I have no preconceived ideas about this either, so we can all find inspiration together.

Apologies for the lack of notice, you’ll just have to wing it again. See you Monday for the first challenge of 2019.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

The last day of 2018 also marks the final post in this year’s run of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, for which I decided to give you the theme; Limbo, the world waits.

I only picked that particular theme to go with the vague feeling of disjointedness which accompanies this week of waiting, in between Christmas and New Year, but as usual it can be interpreted however you like.

I have only one simple photo for you today, but to me it nicely illustrates the feeling of stillness and suspended animation which descends on our lives at the end of each year; as we look back to where we’ve been, in preparation for the year ahead.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all the very best for 2019; from my family to yours, I hope the next twelve months will be even more awesome than the last.

K’lee finally joined us (or I missed it when he did) and his post is HERE.

But for now, it’s your turn.

Cosmic Photo prompt.

Hello there, I hope you all had a very pleasant Christmas and are managing to cope with the enforced limbo between then and New Year.

Here at K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge its time for your weekly prompt and, although it’s K’lee’s turn to pick the theme this week, I’ve not heard from him yet so I’m going to set it instead.

He may arrive at any moment with a prompt of his own and I apologise to you, K’lee, if that is the case, but then the rest of you will have a choice of two to inspire you for Monday’s final post of the year.

So, having cleared that up, my idea for the theme is unusually apposite; Limbo, the world waits.

On the cusp of 2019, what photographic imagery does that suggest to you?

Let us know in the time honoured way…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I gave you all carte blanche for your ideas on this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, leaving the field open for whatever creative images you wanted to showcase in our Christmas Eve post.

I knew I’d just end up mucking about with something for fun and I was right; I went for some festive abstraction.

I took a selection of shots of the decorations on our tree…

…and did some terrible things to them, to create these bespoke works of art.

K’lee will show you his random selection HERE, soon.

Now, it’s late, let’s see what you have to offer us…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee chose the theme for this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, picking another prompt which could be seen as topical for the upcoming festive season; Sacred spaces.

Now I’m not the least bit spiritual or religious, but I do like a nice church and graveyard when it comes to atmospheric photographic subjects. So, since the weather was apocalyptically dreadful at the weekend, I raided the archives to find some suitable material for today’s post.

Here are pictures from three churches, a couple of graveyards, the tower at Glastonbury tor, an ancient monument and a stone circle, along with an imaginary stained glass window I created.

You can see what K’lee came up with by going HERE.

But now it’s your turn to show us the fruits of your labours.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

It’s time to start getting in the festive spirit on today’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, because I set the theme of Christmas lights on Friday.

I braved the crowds of seasonal shoppers with Audrey on Saturday, so we went for a wander around town and across the square, where I took advantage of shiny paving provided by the recent rain to add a little something to my shots of the sparkling trees.

I also had a little muck about with one of them, because I can’t help it.

And here’s a gif of our groovy black fibre-optic Christmas tree in all its colourful glory.

See what glittering delights K’lee has to show you, HERE.

Now it’s your turn to dazzle us…

Cosmic Photo prompt.

This week’s slightly late prompt for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is brought to you by my choice of theme and it’s a topical one; Christmas lights.

Simple, succinct and unambiguous for a change, so see if you can find something to illuminate Monday’s post over the weekend.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge I thought I’d employ the rather lazy “look around the house and garden” technique to find inspiration for K’lee’s prompt; Unusual tones or textures and here’s what I found.

Some nice knots in the pine fence panels; an seasonally variegated clematis leaf; the intricate lacy patterns on a melon rind and the distinctly underwater feel of the light shining through our ever-reliable rippled glass kitchen door (making its third appearance on the challenge) onto the textured plaster of the ceiling.

See what colours and contours K’lee came up with HERE.

Now show us what you brought to the photo party.
