Weekly Photo Challenge: Infinite | Twilight Sky

Infinity can produce contrasting effects on (and in) us: it might make us feel dwarfed or amplified, afraid or empowered. It might take the form of a wide panorama or a zoomed-in fraction of an object. A starry sky? A sea of commuters on a train platform? Rows of corn in a field? No pun intended, but the possibilities really are endless.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO THAT SHOWS US A GLIMPSE OF THE INFINITE.

I took this a few months back, I often look up into the evening sky and wonder what it would be like to just leap up and fly into the infinite above, soar and glide forever. This image captures that feeling perfectly for me.

Private Moment | Daily Prompt: Do Not Disturb

Photographers, artists, poets: show us PRIVATE.

Private2

This is my take on ‘Do Not Disturb’ or ‘Private’ as we as voyeurs look on, into a private moment between people as they relax in the park during Summer. Yet there still is an essence of privacy there, as we do not know what is being said or shared between them. What is the lady on the right doing? And what has the lady on the left to say to her friend?

Yawning Wolf | Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting

IN A NEW POST CREATED SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PICTURE THAT MEANS FLEETING TO YOU.

Fleeting2

A visit to a Safari park in Somerset, UK provided this ‘fleeting’ moment of a lone wolf sat in the sunshine resting. There in one moment, he projected the biggest yawn, allowing me to capture this photograph.

Sprinting Dog | Weekly Photo Challenge: Fleeting

IN A NEW POST CREATED SPECIFICALLY FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PICTURE THAT MEANS FLEETING TO YOU.

Fleeting1

This photograph was taken in Hyde Park, London. I had tracked someone’s pet dog for about half an hour, taking snaps of it playing around and running. I managed to capture this ‘fleeting’ moment when he launched into a sprint across the park. A split second shot of this powerful animal in fast pursuit.

British Summer | Daily Prompt: Tourist Trap

Photographers, artists, poets: show us VACATION.

CamperVan

There is nothing quite like a British Summer! First of all, we wait for months to see if any sunshine is forecast…then the moment we know that we are going to have a nice hot spell, then it’s all hands on deck to get organised! Usually a day visit to the beach if you’re lucky to live near the coast! Or how about a week travelling around our lovely countryside in a VW Campervan as shown above. This one was taken down in the West Sussex coast by Brighton & Hove. A gorgeous Summer’s day on top of a lovely range of hills. The views were vast and splendid, and could see for miles, particularly all the hand-gliders that had flooded the skies!

Triptych (Lost In Thought) | Daily Prompt: The Zone

Tell us about your favorite way to get lost in a simple activity — running, chopping vegetables, folding laundry, whatever. What’s it like when you’re in “the zone”?

Photographers, artists, poets: show us LOST.

Below is a Black & White Triptych Portrait, showing myself Lost in Thought.

(Click to enlarge)

B&WPortraitTriptych

All too often I find myself lost in thought, I enter my inner zone and become immersed within myself. I may think about the past, think about recent events or indeed think about what lies ahead. It’s nice to do this sometimes, have a personal time-out and spend a few moments (or half an hour) reflecting, remembering, and thinking. I believe it’s healthy. It’s also a great way of finding a solution to something, finding a way out of a situation or dilemma, therefore not having to be ‘Lost’ anymore.

Pineapple | Daily Prompt: Silver Linings – 2

Photographers, artists, poets: show us UGLY.

Today’s Daily Prompt has asked us to show, Ugly. Well I am going to show what some may perceive to be ugly, but some view as beautiful. As we all know that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and quite rightly so.

This is an extreme close-up of a Pineapple, it may look strange and unattractive. But I think there is still an essence of beauty there. The colours and textures are great.
