‘Camera Lucida’ – Enchanted


Welcome to the first week of your new photo journey:)

Camera Lucida - Enchanted
Camera Lucida – Enchanted

This week’s theme is: Enchanted

  1. under a spell; bewitched; magical
  2. utterly delighted or captivated; fascinated; charmed

How can you capture ‘enchanted’?

It can be a beautiful sunset that takes your imagination further…a hidden door that can lead to a dreamland…a fairy cupcake with magical powers…a place of your own that no one knows about…the one thing that captivates your attention and fascinates your creativity.

Share your magic:)


I took this picture recently and every time I glance at it…I see magic, an enchanted house with endless stories. The colours of the surroundings add more charm to the house itself, almost creating another world:) There was nothing special about this place until I’ve captured it in a picture… Now I think …”What if I would knock on its door?”


How to join us?

Follow your host and share each week your own vision of the theme.

Photo 101 ‘Camera Lucida’ – Introduction


Hello Beautiful Bloggers,

I’ve recently finished my Photo 101 course and I can’t seem to be able to leave my camera at home anymore or even being able to walk down the street without stopping a thousand times to capture small but extraordinary moments of our world… and I know I am not the only one:)

What is Camera Lucida?

Well, let’s see…

camera lucida |ˌkam(ə)rə ˈluːsɪdə|

an instrument in which rays of light are reflected by a prism to produce an image on a sheet of paper, from which a drawing can be made.

I’ve thought that is just a beautiful description of something quite out of the ordinary…and that is what I want to achieve with this new challenge I’ve embarked on today:)

Every week I will set a new theme to follow in my photography journey and I hope you will want to join me and display your creations on what I call “Your Gallery”

I am also posting for Jennifer’s One Word Photo Challenge...this weeks word is Tsunami:)

Definition of Tsunami

 – a large, often destructive, sea wave produced by a submarine earthquake, subsidence, or volcanic eruption. Sometimes incorrectly called a tidal wave;

– a sudden increase in or overwhelming number or volume of

My interpretation took a different turn…enjoy the tsunami of nature:)

Your Beautiful Storm,

Today’s Photo 101 assignment – Double & Rotation

Screen Shot 2015-06-08 at 16.50.14

This was one of the most interesting challenges I’ve done because of the different perspectives of a snapshot:)

Enjoy the Double View:)

Summer Colour

On a summer morning shine…

Purple petals come to light,

Fallen on the distant rock

Capturing a lonely walk.

‘On the verge…of a fable’


Listen to the forgotten whisper…

of the warm blue sky,

Follow the sound of torn footsteps,

Through the history and time.

…I am still very emotional about these pictures because they carry so many memories.

…and sometimes you don’t realise how many moments from your past you’ve actually forgotten until one day, when you open the door to a world you once knew!

For some these will be just concrete edges…dark grey and old…long forgotten walls swallowed by green grass:)

…and that is ok!

Every picture we take…each moment in our lives…it’s special only to us, because we carry within our heart the essence and the memory of what it was!


I will link my post to Photo Rehab – The Clinic…a beautiful place with beautiful people hosted by the lovely Lucile🙂 Take a peak at the other patients, click on Wrap Up…we all are very special:)


Today’s Photo 101 assignment was Edges & Alignment.

It took me down on memory lane and brought back some beautiful moments:)

‘Looking in…’ Day #5


I was thinking how will I interpret today’s assignment…

I did not have the chance to take a picture through a window…but I’ve managed to capture something else that made me smile…

The view from the other side
The view from the other side

This is how I felt before I took the picture…closing my eyes and hoping that when I will open them, there will be something amazing in front of me to capture…and so it was:)

Today’s Photo 101 challenge was Glass, squared…looking through a window:)


Browsing through my photo collection I’ve found two other pics that I think are somehow in theme today:)

Hope you’ll enjoy it too:)

Distance

Welcome
Welcome

There is nothing like home…

…and even if this picture is not an image of my home, it still makes me feel welcomed, an emotion I hope you’ll have looking at it!


This post is my final one for the ‘5 Day 5 Photo’ challenge from my lovely fellow blogger at http://kyrosmagica.wordpress.com

Thank you again for this challenge…really enjoyed it:)

I will leave the nomination part open…

If you need a challenge…a small push to try something new…join the ‘5 Day 5 Photo’ team and get posting:)

Love,

Julia
