Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 23

Bounty of impact!

The theme of Human Impact brought out some fantastic images, which is what I have come to enjoy from the wonderful folks who frequent this blog.  And this week, I was definitely very impressed by the quality of the posts.

The range went from impact on our environment to the lovely way that we can decorate and the positive impact that us humans can have.  Quite the variety!!

Here’s one of the impacts that I have experienced in my travels…

Lonely Couch

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

  • ladileemanilla jumped on this challenge very quickly with a great post that offered a large variety of images.
  • Charles’ post in the CharlesEWaugh blog focused on the impact of electric power on our landscape.
  • Marga who writes The Photographer Smiled… took a slightly different approach in showing a farmer’s impact.
  • Miriam’s post in Out an’ About has delightful images of her towns Wattle Festival;  you know you’re curious to find out what that’s about!

I hope that I got everyone’s posts!  These were both surprising and wonderful to behold.

Now to think of something new for tomorrow from lovely Brno.

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!
