It was a so-so classic building picture until I realized I had been photo bombed!
JEEPERS CREEPERS IT WAS A LEAPING LEAPER!
Sure, it was a perfect example of EXPRESS YOURSELF, but it lacked the quality of a Photo Challenge entry. It is funny though, and I think the LEAPER would have loved to have a copy.
Today, we challenge you to show us what “express yourself” means to you. (For more information go here.)
When it comes to EXPRESS YOURSELF, no one does it better than a two-year old. In this case … my grandnephew Little Luke!
Serenity (noun): The state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled. For this photo challenge, publish an image that conveys serenity. For more information, go here!
Have you ever considered a city’s major thoroughfare as being serene at sunset rush-hour on a winter afternoon? Well, if the lighting is right, it can be. And if you look closely, you might be able to detect a faint and tiny winter moon up in the sky, too.
Possibility. Opportunity. Potential. As another year gets underway, let’s celebrate the new. (For more information, go here!)
My NEW photograph is one I took a week or so ago as 2014 began to dwindle away into another winter day. It was a photograph of Roxy Paine’s 56 foot tall stainless steel sculpture of a barren tree (Placebo) standing on a hillside next to the Saint Louis Museum Of Fine Art. I’ve seen the work every time I’ve visited the museum and photographed it uncounted times more. But this winter afternoon as the sun was beginning to set I saw the work in a new way.
Except for the evergreen trees that stood to either side, it was as barren as the other trees in the surrounding forest. But it stood there gleaming in the fading winter sun offering hope of warmer times to come. Like I said, I had photographed it many times before. But every time before it had always been from a different point of view that showed the work standing alone. This was the first time I had photographed it as part of the forest that shared its hillside. It made a big difference.
Whether you live on my side of the planet or in the Southern Hemisphere, enjoying real heat on the beach or in your yard, show us your take on warmth. You can go from the literal (saunas! scarves! steaming cups of tea!) to the figurative (the embrace of family members coming together for the holidays, the look of affection on your pet’s face, or even just a photo with a particularly warm color palette, no matter its subject matter).
