A single Tulip – Weekly Photo Challenge : Simplicity

This week Jenn at ‘Traveling at Wits End‘ asks:

This week our challenge is to photograph the simplicity of a scene which may mean making choices on what to leave out.

I love taking photos of flowers shooting slightly into the light and using a clear sky as a backdrop, though it is sometimes hard to isolate just one bloom.

And in Monochrome for perhaps an even simpler image, I cannot decide which I like best.

Red rose and raindrops – A Photo a Week Challenge: Raindrops.

This week Nancy has challenged us with the following:

With the rain yesterday, I had fun capturing the raindrops on my tulips. Rain can be tricky to photograph, but raindrops on objects are a lot of fun. The give things a fresh feeling.

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) FEATURING RAINDROPS.

It had just been raining, it rained nearly every day during our visit to Dartmoor that year.

Only a flower – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #43 – Less is More

This week Amy challenges us with:

This week, I am hosting L-A Photo Challenge. I hope you’ll join me and share what “less is more” means to you. Looking forward to reading your interpretation, e.g. how you focus on a subject when you take a photo of a landscape, building, person, or your pet, and perhaps how you simplify your life style.

I love taking close ups of flowers, especially when I can get in nice and close and remove as much of the background as possible, through use of flash, filter (real or post),  and blurring . . .

To the left – A Photo a Week Challenge: The Rule of Thirds

This week Nancy has challenged us with the topic of ‘The Rule of Thirds’, saying:

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) USING THE RULE OF THIRDS.

One of the first rules a photographer or artist learns, or have I always known it, along with the golden spiral, for some of us it is instinctual, for others composition is worked at.  On good days I fall into the first category, on other days the second.  This almost breaks the rules, but not quite, still I like it, and for some reason I find the emphasis on the left hand third more aesthetically pleasing, does anyone have the opposite opinion?

Everything – A Photo a Week Challenge: Beauty

This week Nancy has challenged us with the topic of ‘Sunshine’, saying:

IN A NEW POST CREATED FOR THIS CHALLENGE, SHARE A PHOTO OR TWO (OR MORE) OF THINGS YOU FIND BEAUTIFUL.

What do I find beautiful, well there is a beauty to be found in nearly all things and I could have chosen a fair few photos that I find beautiful.  Artworks, and buildings, nature and landscapes, monuments and people.  However all of these things stem from nature in the beginning, or a reflection or a juxtaposition to nature.  Therefore I chose this picture.

And of course, a on a purely personal note, my wife is of course beautiful to me.
