Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 91

The circle is complete

Welcome to the 91st round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!  This week’s view of the theme of Circle is amazing!

Your entries covered many applications of the circle, as they ranged from a circle of friends, included some heavenly bodies and generally found circles in many places. I particularly enjoyed the food related ones, as I could eat and drink quite a while with that offering!

Thank you for creating a wonderful set of posts with fantastic viewing and reading!

Here are some more circles…

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!

  1. Holy moly, Frank! That is a huge list of contributors. I really did enjoy them (and let them know too). I agree with you, the food ones are particularly enjoyable. Why is that? 🙂 🙂
    Thanks again for another rich photo challenge. Have a beautiful week …. hope your New Year is off to a wonderful start. Debbie

    1. Thank you, Debbie. Food is a universal language that we all respond to 🙂 The New Year is very busy so far, as I am in Dublin at the moment for a week of meetings. Hope your Year is going well.
