Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 55

Hehy, wealthy and wise!

Welcome to the 55th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

This week’s theme of Healthy clearly struck a chord with many of you, and, like me, a lot of you focused on healthy foods.  There were also wonderful posts about other healthy activities, such as getting out in Nature, a special whippet’s recovery to full strength and dealing with health issues, such as fibromyalgia.  There was even a post about the healthy grieving, which struck a chord with me.

In short, your breadth of experience and creativity was on full display again this week, and I truly enjoyed reading your posts!!

Here are some additional healthy images that came to mind, when I was thinking about this week’s theme…

These images demonstrate the great variety of healthy foods that we find on our planet, each of which I find delicious.  Of course, tastes vary, so it’s awesome that there’s something healthy to eat for every one’s taste buds!

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

  • PtitNFit kicked things off this week with a great post about those shakettes!  Go check it out!
  • The photo in theonlyD800inthehameau is a fantastic display of healthy foods, many of which are unfamiliar to me.  Now I have to explore them!
  • Leaking Ink recognizes the importance of a variety of colors in one’s diet; it looks pretty yummy, but I think it’s taken!
  • Leave it to ladyleemanilla to share a cornucopia of healthy activities and foods, although there may be some junk food among the images 🙂
  • Charles really spruces things up with a rather healthy looking pine tree in charlesewaugh.

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!
