Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 100

Time immemorial

Welcome to the 100th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!  It feels rather amazing to me that we’ve hit the centennial mark, which is solely due to the effort that each of you put into yours posts, time after time!

It was a pleasure to read all of your posts, which showed great variety in how you approached the topic of time!  You took your time and came up with excellent posts, which were insightful and creative!

Thank you very much for your participation!

Here’s a trip back in time….

Connecticut River Mills
Looking back into time

This view is across the Connecticut river near Turner’s Falls, Massachusetts.  This really gives a sense of what it looked like during the 19th century, when these mills were operational and providing lots of jobs.

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. Thank you, Frank! A creative line up indeed. Love your take on the theme with that old mill photo. The northeast has such historical beauty. Have a great week. (I’m having a bit of a tough one, if you can keep positive thoughts my way – thanks.) Blessings to you and your wife, Debbie
