Letters from a past future – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #83: Future

This weeks challenge from the Lens-Artists is from Leya:

This week the challenge is Future – Show us what you will paint on Your canvas!

I have to admit I was a bit stumped at first with this one, I quite often use photos from my archive, which exists in a state of the ‘past’.  Ok, so perhaps I need to take a new photo, hang on, even though I am thinking of taking it in the ‘future’, my very act of taking it now consigns it to some sort of ‘past’.

Hmmm, what about the thought of post processing? no, that although not yet happened will soon transition into a time that I will move on from, and by the time you read this will be passed, the photo indelibly ascribed to this post, and as far from a future as can be.

So what to do. . .

As a birthday present to myself this year, in December, I bought a 3d printer, surely this is a thing of the ‘future’, a machine that the childhood me would of thought of as existing only in Star Trek.

Well I have made a number of small objects, fixed things around the house, but now we get to, ‘The Future’.  Where does this sit with my photography, I do want to make some ‘lithophanes’ of my photographs, if you do not know what they are a quick google search will enlighten you (other search engines are still available – just!).  However even before I had got the printer I had been thinking of combining this ‘Modern technology’, with a ‘Past technology’, as we also own a small letterpress.

So to the Future, watch this space!

Inspired by Leya’s rather beautiful photos of double exposures of flowers, here is my own double exposure (not as beautiful) of a seed of a thought for the future.

Double treats – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #69 – Seeing Double

This weeks challenge from the Lens-Artists is:

Double trouble, double-time, two’s company, take two …. the world is filled with references to twosomes. This week, let’s double our pleasure and focus on things that come in twos.

So another in the ‘wife holds ice cream’ series, just to make sure you all know, one of these ice creams is destined for me, can you guess which one is mine?  The clue might be the fact that I have a sizeable moustache and beard.

Not quite a double meaning, but I so wanted to use this photo, and which way should I go?  Why has the figure on the right put on weight? Is there food in this direction?  Choice made!


Llandovery way – Which Way Challenge: July 04, 2019

Each week sonofabeach96 challenges us with the following:

This Which Way challenge is all about capturing the roads, walks, trails, rails, steps, signs, etc. we move from one place to another on.  You can walk on them, climb them, drive them, ride on them, as long as the specific way is visible.  Any angle of a bridge is acceptable as are any signs.
