Is it just self, or are the WordPress Weekly Photo Challenges becoming increasingly — challenging?
This week’s theme is PERSPECTIVE:
Post a photo which is not what it seems to be.
(Oh. Self doesn’t think her photos are anything other than what they seem to be: shots of a flower market)
But she’s not going to change her post now! Not after she spent so much time choosing the pictures!
Self thinks it’s the use of wide angle on her teensy Nikon Coolpix that makes all the difference: she can move up close, but still get so much peripheral detail into a shot. And in places like the ones she’s been to in the Philippines, the frame is just jammed with detail.
She likes to show people, too. Not posing for the cameras, just getting on with it — work, their daily lives, whatever.
Self went looking for a wreath of flesh flowers she could lay in front of her Dear Departed Dad’s grave.
Here are three other WordPress blogs whose interpretation of this week’s theme, Perspective, self found particularly thought-provoking:
- from Broken Light: A Photography Collective: Knockout photo. Self can’t. She can’t even.
- from Till All Are Fun: All Things Transformers: Low Shots and Close-Ups of Plastic Toys
The absolute fun of toy photography — and why I got into it in the first place — is that creativity with perspective is a must. Somehow, you have to make 1″ to 6″ plastic plastic men look like giants.
- from Nola Roots, Texas Heart: Look at the second photo. It is so poignant, especially after reading the accompanying quote, from Harper Lee.
Stay tuned, dear blog readers. Stay tuned.
