Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 77

Hour best time!

Welcome to the 77th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!  This was a week filled with wonderful hours and allusions to them!

The hours chosen varied in your posts for this theme, but all of them had creativity and wonderful work in common!  As photographers love this time of day, I was not surprised to see a lot of great golden hour images.  Then some of you also found clocks to let us know the hour.  The one post that surprised me most, was one that had me going cuckoo!  You’ll be sure to find it when you read through this awesome set of contributions!

Thank you all for playing this week and making my reading that much more fun!

And here’s the morning hour, even though I’m not really an early bird…

Morning’s Fire

This is an image from my commuting series.  When my job didn’t have the same time pressures that my current one has 🙂  This is Rocky Pond in Boylston, MA, which allowed me to get some wonderful images throughout the seasons.

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!
