K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For this week’s visit to the world of inspiringly improvised imagery, K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is taking its lead from K’lee, who gave us the prompt; From dreams to reality.

Now, that kind of theme is just asking for something wonderful and strange to happen, as any mention of dreams has me looking at everything through the filter of surrealism.

I’m not entirely sure what K’lee had in mind when he set the challenge, but I think my offerings have a suitably dreamlike quality to them, or maybe it’s a nightmare, you decide.

See what K’lee dreamed up HERE.

Now show us your phantasy photos.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

I was the one who set the theme for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge this week, going for the very simple prompt of; Circles.

I didn’t pick it for any particular reason, although my original idea was to use photos of these soap bubbles, which landed on an African violet on the kitchen windowsill as I was washing up.

But nice as they are, that didn’t strike me as enough, somehow, so I decided to have a play with some circular glass objects instead.

A bottle, inside a pint glass, inside a vase, on top of a jar, on a wooden worktop, to be precise…

…which made rather a good starting point for some more creative composite images.

You can see what kind of circular logic K’lee’s post follows, HERE.

But now you can show us what you got round to doing at the weekend.

It’s easy when you know how…

Cosmic Photo prompt.

It is entirely my fault the prompt for this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is late, so once again I apologise.

So without any further ado, here’s the theme you have to adhere to; Circles.

As easy, or as complex, as that.

Find something circular to amaze, amuse or astound us over the weekend and we’ll all reconvene here on Monday to compare well-rounded notes.

You know what to do…

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

We’re turning the prompt on its head this week, per my suggestion that your entries for K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge fall under the loose definition of; Upside down.

Whether you choose to capture an object which is, itself, the wrong way up, invert an existing image, or any combination of the two, it’s all fine with us.

I’ve chosen to use the reflective properties of the River Taw to provide a trio of optical double-takes for you to ponder.

You can reflect on K’lee’s overturned Obzervashuns HERE.

Now, however, it’s time for you to expose your exhibits for our enlightenment.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

For this week’s adventure in imagery, K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge asked you to do some duplication, for K’lee’s prompt; Double the expression through double exposure.

This sounded like fun to me straight away, because I love a bit of mucking about and Audrey is always keen to star in challenge posts, so we went for a bike ride around the local park and did some panoramic experiments.

These weren’t created in the strictest sense of a “double exposure”, because they were taken in one slow pan, with Audrey running round behind me to change position, but the result is the same.

We also did a bit of an experiment with those fancy 360° 3D photo thingies you see on Facebook and Pinterest, except ours aren’t sweeping panoramas of cathedrals or tropical waterfalls; they are of Audrey playing pool in the pub and following herself around the living room.

You need to click each link to view it, then slowly scroll round or move your phone to explore.

***FOUR-DREY***

***POOL***

***AT HOME***

After that, I had another idea, while looking through the rippled glass of the door into our kitchen.

This is another example of not-really-double-exposure, but it kind of falls into the same category; in that it’s two photos of the same thing (in this case, me) taken separately, then stuck together again.

I took an ordinary, boring selfie, then took another, but this time through the aforementioned glass door.

Then I created this rather Magritte-like composite image, which I think came out quite well.

K’lee’s suitably artistic offering awaits you, HERE.

But now it’s time for you to share your double visions with us.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

It was only after I set the prompt for this week’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge that I realised; I wasn’t quite so spoilt for choice as I’d originally thought, when it came to finding examples of The onset of autumn.

I like to create something original whenever I can, without trawling the archives too much, (even though I did feature the same trees in a previous post) so I made a new piece of art, too.

These sycamore trees are just beginning to get their dramatic red plumage…

…and this handful of leaves from the garden…

…was transformed into a work of autumnal art.

See what K’lee leaves us, HERE.

Now it’s time for you to show us your seasonal offerings.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

Today’s theme on K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge was chosen by K’lee and his prompt was perfect for me, as I have a huge number of pictures which fit the description of; Wings across the skies.

The weekend weather was so utterly lousy; any suitably avian subjects were probably trying to find a perch to cling onto, far too busy to pose for photos.

So I picked a couple of archive images which I liked and made an “artistic” one, too. See what you think.

See what flights of fancy K’lee has dreamed up, HERE, later.

But for now, let’s see what ornithological optical offerings you organised for us…

Cosmic Photo prompt.

Apologies for the slightly tardy prompt, K’lee didn’t post the theme for Monday’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge until last night and I’ve been at work since stupid o’clock this morning.

But now I’m here, I’ll tell you that K’lee decided on; Wings across the skies.

That seems to be a fairly straightforward one for a change, so get out there and capture some avian or aviator-based snaps to start the week.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

We are getting in amongst the undergrowth for this week’s K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, since I set the theme of Creepy Crawlies on Friday, encouraging y’all to get some entomological specimens for us to study.

I saw a spider and a fly, dangerously close together on a clematis in the garden…

…but I had more success with our newly blooming pink sedum, where I got a few nice shots of a busy honey bee and a tiny hover fly, to which I added a few from the archives; a lily beetle, a fearsome looking scorpion and the impressive but harmless hornet moth.

K’lee brings you his insectile interpretation of the prompt HERE.

But now let’s see what the great hive mind has to offer…
