Welcome to episode 21 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge! As we jus thad another great week of contributions, I thought it might be time for another curve ball with this week’s theme.
I’d like to challenge you to produce photos with the following theme: Unusual! Capture something or someone, clearly at odds with its environment or looks rather strange all by its lone self. This challenge is very much about observing your environment, and noticing what is out of place, which is a great exercise for the mind.
This also will give you an opportunity to hone your photography skills, because you’ll have the opportunity to capture the reason for why your subject is at odds with the world around it.
As an example of what I’m looking for, here’s a little vista that I uncovered when looking to photograph a beautiful sunset during a trip to Chincoteague…
You can see what I was thinking, as seeing the dumpster and port-a-potty right on this beautiful beach made me chuckle; it gave me something to contrast the beauty of what Nature presented against what humanity contributed.
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 have every confidence that each of you will be able to highlight the unusual in the world! This should be a lot of fun to see all the results of your creative endeavors!!
This image was captured with a Canon 5D MkII using an EF 24-105mm f/4 lens. The exposure settings were 1/160 second, at f/8 and 400 ISO.
