Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 82

Someone’s in the kitchen with…

Welcome to the 82nd round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!  From looking at the entries this week, I think that the kitchen is a place of good food and memories for each of you!

I like the variety that you presented in your posts, as we get to see old kitchens, new kitchens, old ways of doing things, great stories and some fantastic food!!  But most of all, your posts were all fun to read and see, as it is clear that you put your creative thoughts into them!

Thank you all for great posts!

Let’s go back in time a bit for this kitchen…

Diana’s Bar and Kitchen

This image is from this year’s vacation in Italy, at the stunning excavations at Ostia Antica.  We’re looking at the Bar and Kitchen of Diana, where many a good meal and drink was served in antiquity.  One can feel the atmosphere of the location and be absorbed by the laughter and great cheer that permeates the very bricks and tile at Diana’s!

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

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!
