Welcome to week 35 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge. Last week’s response to the challenge theme topic of Trunk received a lot of excellent responses with trees leading elephants, but not to be outdone was the steamer trunk!
In the round-up for last week, I mentioned that I’d love to hear suggestions for topics to include in the challenge line-up. As a result, this week’s theme topic is contributed by Debbie, whose blog ForgivingConnects is always good to read and has lots of excellent advice for good living. One of Debbie’s topic suggestions was balloons, which certainly is a fun light-hearted topic.
Your challenge is to unleash your creativity on balloons (there are various kinds!) and present something fun with this theme. Balloons are often seen at celebrations, but also at festivals, where they may gather in quantity.
Here’s a whimsical look at balloons with a bit of an abstract twist to it:
When I saw the red and white balloons, I knew there was something fun that I could do with it; with a bit of zoom blur to create a sense of motion and flow, this image came about. Certainly, not too serious, so a bit of pretentiousness in the title just added to the fun!
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 (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
- Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!
So let’s see, where the balloons might float or will they pop as they rise? Looking forward to your wonderful ideas!
This image was captured with a Canon EOS 5D MkIII using an FE 24-105mm f/4L lens. Exposure settings were at f/22 and 1/13 second and 200 ISO. The effect ws created by rotating the lens during the shot, causing a zoom blur.
