Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 10

Veggies abound!

This week it was all about the veggies!  Yes, vegetables were the theme and we got some interesting posts including finding out who does not like to eat his veggies 🙂

The challenge was to not just present an image of vegetables, but to do something creative, keeping an eye on composition, colors, lines and all the pieces that make for a great photo.  I’m happy to say that the entries were worthy!!


The following were this week’s participants in the challenge with links to their posts:

  • Marie writes the New 3 R’s: Retire, Recharge, Reconnect, an wonderful blog that is an inspiration to all; her post shows us asparagus in Venice, Italy!
  • Miriam of the Out an’ About blog, showed us the current state of her vegetable garden and some shots preceding the harvest!
  • Steve, who writes Meandering Maverick, clearly eats his veggies under protest and entertained us with his interpretation of how he goes for his recommended daily veggie intake 🙂
  • Debbie, whose blog is Forgiving Journal, showed the connection between touching the soil and forgiveness using a friend’s vegetable garden.
  • Nikki, who writes A Kinder Way, took us into the produce section at her local grocery store to show us her love for veggies.
  • Kim just posted another great shot on his blog Do You See What I See?, highlighting the beauty of vegetables exquisitely!

These were all fantastic entries and I enjoyed reading them very much; hope that you looked at each other’s posts and enjoyed them.

Now to start preparing for Tuesday’s new topic…I’m trying to make up my mind on which one to pick:-)

A Fresh Perspective Photography is more than just a vehicle for capturing the world around me; it provides me with a palette and a set of brushes, with which I paint not only what I see, but also look to express the emotions that are evoked by the scene in front of me in that moment. Growing up in the Netherlands exposed me to a wide cross-section of visual arts that laid the foundation of my photographic view of all that surrounds me. Early influences were the Dutch Masters of the 17th century, to whom I was introduced by my grandfather during museum explorations; favorites among them are the scenes of quotidian life depicted by Jan Steen and Frans Hals and the vivid landscapes of Jacob van Ruisdael. My classical high school education was supplemented by the Boijmans Van Beuningen museum, where I spent many a lunch hour exploring its great collection. Here I was introduced to surrealism with a particular love for the approach taken by Salvador Dali; Dali also rekindled my appreciation for the work of Hieronymus Bosch, who often showed the folly of us mortals. Universal Connections My approach to any photographic subject is to look for understanding first; in this I look to establish either a connection between the viewer and the subject or capture the connection of the subject with its surroundings. The captured image then aims to portray this connection from a perspective that is part of my personal interpretation. This interpretation is often a form of externalized introspection, which may alternately display the connection of isolated beings and items with their environment or highlight the whimsy of the profound world, in which we find ourselves. The universe is full of connections, many of which are waiting to be discovered; part of my journey as a photographer is to document these connections. Any assignment, be it an event, a product shoot or a portrait session is always approached through communication with the client; this is where the first connection is established. Ideas are exchanged and a collaborative plan of action forms, ultimately resulting in a set of images that aim to exceed the expectations of each client. And, lest we forget, it is important to have fun while practicing the serious business of photography!
