The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

A very good morning to you, wherever and whenever you may be reading this and welcome to another Monday edition of The Cosmic Photo Challenge, prompted this week by my suggestion that your photos are taken; From an unusual angle.

I wasn’t sure what direction I was going to take for this, but I saw a nice idea for a collage on a Facebook photography group on Saturday and was inspired to make this…

…wherein three of the sunsets are always at an unusual angle, whichever way up it is.

But that’s not really in the spirit of photos taken from the requisite obtuse perspective; so it occurred to me that this accidental selfie, edited after I took it the other day, holding my phone whilst standing in a socially distanced supermarket queue, might qualify instead…

Having said that, I thought I should still make an effort to actively attempt to capture something in an unconventional or indirect way, so this happened…

How did you do with your weekend homework, have you got something to show the rest of the class?

For the Cosmic Photo Challenge on Monday, I’d like to return to an old favourite to inspire your creative outpourings; From an unusual angle.

This gives you infinite scope for photographic subjects, (provided they fall within current social distancing guidelines, obviously) allowing your imagination to run wild while giving us some visual puzzles into the bargain.

Have a lovely weekend and I’ll catch up with you in a few days.

Hello there, I’m told it’s Monday, which must mean it’s time for The Cosmic Photo Challenge and a hearty plateful of Food as art.

I chose to go with a single image this week, nutritiously constructed in the kitchen from strawberries, cherry tomatoes, cucumber and French beans; here’s my field of fruit and veg flowers.

How were you inspired by the challenge over the weekend? Let us all have a look, leave your link in the comments.

For today’s apaturial adventure, I asked you to come up with something for The Cosmic Photo Challenge which featured something Symmetrical.

Well, not being able to get out and about much, I spent time making a few imaginary buildings and pictures with a mirrored element to them.

Now it’s your turn to show us what kind of symmetry you captured over the weekend.

Today’s prompt for the Cosmic Photo Challenge is one with plenty of room for interpretation; Symmetrical.

There, it couldn’t be much simpler than that, could it?

So as long as your photos for Monday’s post exhibit some kind of symmetry, then they qualify; whether it’s organic, manmade, geometric, architectural, naturalistic or artistic, it matters not one jot.

Have a lovely weekend and show us your snaps to start yet another new week of seclusion.

The Cosmic Photo Challenge.

On Friday I asked you to consider the birds and bees as your homework for this week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge and I chose to go on miniature safari in the garden.

I’d been wanting to try out the macro abilities of my new camera for a while and the buzzing of insects in the sunshine gave me the perfect excuse. I staked out the daffodils and spikes of purple bugle flowers and took a few shots of the inhabitants, until a compliant and extremely fuzzy bumble came along and I followed his progress until he fell asleep, nonchalantly dangling by one leg, snoring gently.

What photographic delights did the Easter weekend provide for you?

It’s as easy as a bee see to take part…

Another lazy Monday in the strange, dystopian limbo that is global lockdown and The Cosmic Photo Challenge is here, to brighten your day and take your mind off all the bad news for a few minutes.

Here’s what I came up with after Friday’s prompt suggested we take this week’s photos; Through an opening.

The current isolation measures mean not having any outside space in which to relax would make life almost unbearable, so we’re increasingly grateful for the little oasis of calm in our crazy (and suddenly very small) world.

And that’s where I took my inspiration from yesterday, while sitting in the sunshine of the garden; looking out into the garden, from inside the house at night and capturing the sunshine from inside the shed; looking at the garden, unusually framed in the openings of Audrey’s bedroom window, looking down into a glass candle holder, looking into the entrance of a tiny birdhouse, seeing the nest materials within and looking out at myself through the openings in the clematis’ obelisk-shaped growing frame.

So that’s the opening salvo in this week’s challenge, let’s have a look at what you lot’ve got for us…

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.
