‘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 ūüôā

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 ūüôā

How to join us?

‘Camera Lucida’ – Nature’s Dessert


Welcome to week #4 of Camera Lucida Photo Challenge:)

This week’s theme: The Nature’s Dessert

I’ve always loved taking photos of nature…might that be beautiful flowers, interesting trees, breathtaking scenery but I do have a weakness for sweet and juicy fruits:)

This week I have the pleasure to invite you to share your best take on Nature’s Dessert…what makes you stop and stare?!

Share your vision of the sweet and juicy…fruity and vibrant…might that be the fruit stand at your favourite market, your morning fresh smoothie, the apple tree across the street, a hidden strawberry bush in your secret garden or the last lemonade you’ve enjoyed on a warm summer afternoon.

Beautiful and simple…

Nature’s little secrets,

Hidden away from the naked eye,

Just like an alluring impression.

Simple

I would also like to link my post to the Photo Rehab 101 – The Clinic challenge, an amazing place where you can be yourself and share your world through the visual effects of life.

Thanks Lucileūüôā

This blog hosted ‚ÄėThe Photo101 Rehab Clinic‚Äô from 04 to 31 December 2014 and featured over 170 photos made by¬†Photobloggers Andy Townend,¬†Mara Eastern,¬†Cardinal Guzman,¬†DesleyJane,¬†Justine,¬†Amy,¬†Teresa, Albert,¬†Terri,¬†Giving Thought,¬†Ellen,¬†Nalinki,¬†Mariangeles,¬†DwayCrafts,¬†Lucy,¬†Terri,¬†Bampa‚Äôs Views,¬†PeaceCrafting,¬†Dreaming of Leaving¬†and¬†Project Easier.

You can do a¬†self-examination. If you detect any of the following symptoms, as carefully described by¬†Albert from the¬†blog¬†Passionately Curious,¬†come and join us: ‚ÄúWithdrawal symptoms may include the incessant need to carry your camera everywhere with you, the need to wake up in the wee hours to take photos during the golden hour, and checking up on others you met during the course to see what their newfound knowledge has brought fruit to.‚ÄĚ

How to join: 

Time: The Clinic is open 24 x 7 until the healing process ends.

Camera: You can use any camera, from DSLR, mirrorless, compact, to smartphones.

Theme: Bring your creativity and photograph a theme of your liking in B&W or Color. With or without edition. We like learning techniques as well, if you want to share it with everyone.

Who can join: Anyone can join; and not only former Photo 101 bloggers. All you need is passion. Passion to speak up through images ‚Äď or words, if you may want to add your thoughts to it as well ‚Äď showing what you see and how much that is important to you.

Thanks for joining and enjoy it.

‘Enchanted’


The walk

Open your eyes for the starlight…

for a second before the sunlight,

Walk slowly across the warm field

as you come close to the glazing shield.

Look up at the blue sky,

and feel the enchanted yellow tie.
