‘Camera Lucida’ – Garden Treasure


Welcome back to week #14 of Camera Lucida Photo Challenge

Watering Pot

This week’s theme: Garden Treasure

  1. a piece of ground adjoining a house, used for growing flowers, fruit, or vegetables
  2. a quantity of precious metals, gems, or other valuable objects.

Watering pot

I’ll be very honest and say that gardening never was my strong side…it’s quite relaxing in a way but I could never call it a hobby…a way of life…or a must:)

What does fascinate me is the visual perspective of everything that relates to gardening…there is something that attracts the eye…and it’s not always the end product.

The muddy boots…the old watering pot that has been used for generations…the colourful utensils that have a bigger purpose than just to dig and cut or just break the soil…

This week your challenge is to share what is your garden treasure…it is your beautiful and personalised box of gardening utensils…maybe your secret corner of heaven…a rare flower that makes you proud…your dirty boots and gloves…

What is your garden treasure…how does your garden reflect you?

Share this week a piece of you…maybe a little secret that you’ve kept hidden behind a beautiful evergreen pot:)

‘Camera Lucida’ – Reflections


Welcome back to week #13 of Camera Lucida Photo Challenge

Reflections
Reflections

This week’s theme: Reflections

  1. the throwing back by a body or surface of light, heat, or sound without absorbing it
  2. an amount of light, heat, or sound that is reflected by a body or surface

It’s always interesting to look at reflections…are they really the same as the reality?

How many times did you look at your own reflection and wondered if that’s how the world sees you…?

This week’s theme is: Reflections…show us how we look at the world upside down…how we see ourselves from the other side…how water seems to be the borderline between reality and imagination…show us who looks back from the mirror…make this week your own and tell us a story that will make us reflect:)

‘Camera Lucida’ – Metal


Welcome back to week #12 of Camera Lucida Photo Challenge

Metal
Metal

This week’s theme: Metal

  1. a solid material which is typically hard, shiny, malleable, fusible, and ductile, with good electrical and thermal conductivity (e.g. iron, gold, silver, and aluminium, and alloys such as steel).
  2. broken stone for use in road-making.
    “the work also involves dealing with rock aggregates for potential use as suitable road metal”

Before anything I would like to welcome everyone back to Camera Lucida Photo Challenge after a much needed break…I say break, but somehow I never stopped pointing my camera towards new ideas and perspectives 🙂

This week I am brining you into a new world…a different way of looking at something that all of us have around but rarely would we consider it art…the use of metal. Take a look around you and find that simple and maybe insignificant, sometimes even dangerous piece of rust that brings to life emotions…a different spark in our eyes and a modern interpretation of rudimentary.

Show your unique view on his weeks’ theme, bring us your best art…might that be a bridge of locks that tell a story, the old barn door with nails sticking out, a sculpture covered by rust but full of character or your personalised DIY tool box …this week anything metal goes 🙂

‘Camera Lucida’ – Autumn Lane


Welcome back to week #11 of Camera Lucida Photo Challenge

Autumn leaf

This week’s theme: Autumn Lane

1. the season after summer and before winter, in the northern hemisphere from September to November and in the southern hemisphere from March to May.

2. a division of a road marked off with painted lines and intended to separate single lines of traffic according to speed or direction.


On the line

I’ve never been a fan of autumn…probably because it leads to winter…cold and windy season!

…but I love the autumn colours, extraordinary palette of shades that always tell a story.

This week your challenge is to interpret autumn…the lane that separates the end of summer and the beginning of fall. Capture the beautiful colours of trees…the ripe and tasty autumn harvest…the fine cross line between worlds that are so close but so far apart…

The possibilities are endless…show your artistic side and be bold…try different perspectives and share your own personal take on one of the most beautiful seasons that transforms nature into an unforgettable painting.

‘Camera Lucida – The Colour of Life’


Welcome back to week #10 of Camera Lucida Photo Challenge

Colour of Life
Colour of Life

This week’s theme: The Colour of Life

  1. Colour – the property possessed by an object of producing different sensations on the eye as a result of the way it reflects or emits light.
  2. Life – a particular type or aspect of human existence

I’ve been looking for something out of the ordinary and I’ve actually found it 🙂

A very interesting collection of owls…not ordinary owls, but an expression of art and visual effects which I’ve never seen before. What captured my attention was the vivid and detailed colours that tell a story in the most extraordinary way!

This week your challenge is to find and capture the tone of life…the colours that make your heart beat faster and your eyes open wider…take a snapshot of the rainbow that shows the true colours of life…seize the moment of a beautiful red apple before you take a bite…catch the bright colour of the sunset that takes all life to sleep…immortalise the striking green wake up of the nature…showcase the appetising look of the most tasty and colourful dish…SHARE the colour of your life 🙂

‘Camera Lucida’ – The Sign


Welcome back to week #9 of Camera Lucida Photo Challenge

Symbol

This week’s theme: The Sign

  1. an object, quality, or event whose presence or occurrence indicates the probable presence or occurrence of something else.
  2. a gesture or action used to convey information or an instruction.
  3. a notice on public display that gives information or instructions in a written or symbolic form.

I took this picture a few weeks ago and since then I’ve wanted to introduce it in one of the themes for Camera Lucida…so, here it is…your challenge this week is to take a photo of a sign that gets your focus, something out of the ordinary or just a snapshot of ‘the simple’ from a new perspective.

Stop and stare for a moment…what is the sign in front of you…where does it take you?

Take a shot of the sign that leads you towards a new journey…

What will be your choice…follow the sign or make your own path?


Just a sign
