K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

This week’s challenge post…

Diary of an Internet Nobody.

Another Monday brings another collection of photographic phantasmagoria, in the shape of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge,based this week on my prompt of; Glass.

Or even glasses.

My two new shots are both incredibly straightforward; the first is simply two drinking glasses inside each other which I just liked the look of and the second is, well, me in my glasses.

I’ve also picked a selection of stained glass windows from the archives.

As ever,HERE IS K’LEE’S PHOTO, but now it’s your turn…

Today’s Cosmic Photo Challenge features the prompt, CONTRAST.

Diary of an Internet Nobody.

Good morning (or afternoon, depending on your timezone) and welcome to this week’s installment ofK’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge,with today’s theme chosen by me.

I picked Contrast,giving you free reign to choose your subject and interpret the prompt pretty much however you like.

For my contribution, I’ve taken yet more photos of our ever-evolving Mound; the focal point of our garden and the subject of the weekend’s work in the sunshine. I’ve chosen to use black and white, to highlight the difference in the texture and form between the various plants and the decorative features.

Check out K’lee’s photos of the day,HERE.

Today’s summery entry in the photo challenge.

(More sun soaked shots from the weekend on the way)

Diary of an Internet Nobody.

It’s time to get summery with K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, today prompted by K’lee and his simple suggestion that we use Three, or The three faces of summerfor our inspiration.

Well, Audrey and I went down to the park on Saturday morning and, since she likes being featured on the blog, I thought I’d edit together three shots of her enjoying the sunshine, whilst she was scooting and swinging.

You can findK’lee’s photos here.

I hope you all had a similarly summery weekend, now let’s see what photographic evidence you have for us…

Hello and welcome to another Monday morning edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, this week prompted by K’lee;

NIGHTTIME REFLECTIONS!

As always, you can define this any way you want. Reflected lights from a window or a car on to a reflective surface. Your own reflection seen through a window at night… anything you want.”

Well, it was wet and miserable last night, here in the West Country, meaning that I couldn’t go with what I had planned for the challenge, so I’ve used a photo I took last Christmas in Bideford, just along the river estuary from Barnstaple.

Here’s a shot of the illuminated arches of the old stone bridge on the river Torridge, lit by the Christmas lights, with some colourful reflections on the water.

You can now see K’lee’s photo HERE.

Now let’s see what you have to offer…

Here’s this week’s sparkly offering for the Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Diary of an Internet Nobody.

Hello and welcome to a new week, it’s time to get up close and personal for today’s Cosmic Photo Challenge.

On Friday, I left you a prompt which asked for close ups of whatever you fancied shooting; whether that meant photographing miniscule insects, doing an intimate portrait study of your own face, or zooming into the microscopic world of cells and crystals, making tiny stuff bigger is essentially what we’re after here.

I chose to go with a couple of interesting rocks from Audrey’s selection of gemstones, fossils and geological curiosities that she has collected or been given over the last few years.
I thought I’d post both the full sized and close up versions of the two specimens, along with this first shot of the pair of them inside a 5″ frog mussel shell, to give you an idea of scale.

I completely forgot to reblog last week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, so here it is.
(This week’s prompt is “close up”; pop over to Diary of an Internet Nobody and see how to get involved.)

Diary of an Internet Nobody.

img_20160318_210825-picsay.jpgIt’s Monday, which must mean that it’s time for cosmic photography.

This week, it was K’lee’s turn to pick the theme and he came up with this;

“FAST CARS

This could be any type of fast car your imagination brings to the surface of your consciousness – you decide, you create…for the ‘K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge’ “

Well, I drive a Nissan Micra, (not the sportiest of cars, although I love it) so I was never going to do a convincing job of crowbarring that into this post, but I thought of a way of suggesting how fast some cars were going, even if I was restricted to picking them at random as they drove past.

So here is my offering for today; I attempted (with varying degrees of success) to capture the traffic as it sped past the layby I was sitting in on the way home from working…

This week’s challenge heads for a bit of dappled shade…

For this week’s Cosmic Photo Challenge, the prompt was “Into the woods”, giving you a pretty broad theme of trees, woodlands, forests, leaves, anything arboreal in fact.

Audrey and I went out into the woods just behind our neighbourhood on Saturday and took a whole load of pictures (I shall be posting a selection of both Audrey’s and my own photos very soon) but today I thought I’d take a few of them and return to a more abstract style, by trying another collage.

I’ve called this one Woodland Cathedral, because it has the look of an enclosed yet illuminated space with a vaulted ceiling and there’s also a contemplative feeling about it.

See what you think…
