Welcome to the 12th occasion of the Tuesday Photo Challenge; a couple of weeks and we’ll be up and running for 3 months, thanks to all these wonderful entries and great participation!! Thank you all for this!
A radical departure from the past couple of weeks, which may be what you expect at this point, as we’ll be looking for images that are by their very nature: Colorful! What I hope you’ll do, is to jam as much color into your images, as you can get, with an eye toward having colors that work together. This is a great opportunity to be on the lookout for color in your daily lives; you may be surprised by the amount of color that is everywhere!
I hope that this is one that each of you wants to grab onto and run with! For a bit of inspiration, here’s a shot from 11 years ago of one of those spinning wind catchers that are always popular…
I was actually photographing an agility trial in upstate New York that day and had noticed this colorful spinner. So between sets of dogs running, I played with this, waiting for just the right amount of wind.
For those who’d like to participate in this weekly challenge, the rules are the following:
- Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
- Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
- Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week
- Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!
I am looking forward to your creative entries this week to see what fences catch your eye!
This image was captured with a Canon EOS 1D Mk II with an EF 70-200mm f/2.8L lens and 1.4x Extender. Exposure settings were 1/25 second, f/20 at 100 ISO; at 280mm this was a handheld exposure, which worked with a bit of steady hand.
