This week’s Photo Challenge theme is all about getting Lost in the Details.
Once you’ve found a subject you want to photograph, challenge yourself to work a little further into the scene. Here, I use a landscape as an example, but this approach can be applied to other types of photography.
Funny thing is, I’d done something similar – just for kicks of course – when I went to Jebel Sifah a couple of months back. A walk on the beach with my cousin Jhinx turned into a fun photo session!
This week’s Photo Challenge:
In a new post specifically created for this challenge, share a picture that says FORWARD to you.
Perhaps it’s a path you yourself have taken, the building where you’re starting a great new job, or the curve of your partner’s pregnant belly. It could be an image that shows a physical move, or something that evokes a major life change.
Every once in a while, you read a book that completely changes your world view. For me, The Art of Non-Conformity by Chris Guillebeau did exactly that. I picked it up during my recent trip to Amsterdam and finished it on the six hour flight back home. What a brilliant book! And it couldn’t have come at a better time. If you haven’t read it, I strongly suggest you do!
Anyway, this book certainly mark’s the beginning of a new journey in my life. And I hope in the following months I get to blog about it all. SO without further ado, here’s a picture that represent’s “Forward”.
Not the best photograph. It was taken on my cellphone during the wee hours of the morning. But will have to do.
The theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge is “Kiss”. Mine’s a slightly different one. A picture taken during my trip to The World of Beatrix Potter.
So, I signed up for another challenge – the Weekly Photo Challenge – and today’s my first post related to that (and Day 16 of my 30 Day Blog Challenge). The theme:
Share a picture that evokes HOME for you.It might be the place where you live, or a more abstract representation, or something completely different.
Right, this one’s slightly hard – because I have no ‘home’ to speak of. I love Muscat and have spent many happy years here, but is it really ‘home’? On the other hand, Calcutta is where my family is – yet I’ve hardly lived there. Umm, Bangalore? It’s my favourite city in the whole of India but “home”…? Excellent! As if I didn’t have enough problems in the first place… now I have to deal with an identity crisis? :) I refuse to succumb to this now. I’ll just go ahead and pick all three!
But for this challenge, I pick Calcutta, the City of Joy. And my favourite thing about Calcutta? Flurys. Naturally!
