Welcome to Week 113 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge! I will finish the round up later during the day and post it tomorrow morning, as the response was rather overwhelming!
After a week filled with Promise, I thought that I’d change it up a bit this week with a theme that allows everyone to show their Age! With Age comes wisdom and, like many a great wine, things can get better with Age! Your challenge is to come up with creative ways to show the wonderful aspects of Age in your posts!
As always, your creativity is the only limit to the directions, in which you can take the theme. I’m curious to see your interpretations of what holds promise and might be so full of promise that you just have to share it!
Here’s a sample of the interest that Age can provide…
This section of the side of a barn was one of my discoveries in Iceland, when I found the Herring Era Museum in the wonderful town of Siglufjörður.
The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:
Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!
I’m looking forward to seeing what might ring true in your 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.
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!

I’ve been eager to know what’s up for this week. And I think this will be an interesting one to tackle. Coming back with my entry. 🙂
Looking forward to seeing your post
Great. Coming in a bit. 🙂
Here’s a picture I took in the ghost town of Bodie, CA. https://dragonflysdance.wordpress.com/2018/01/14/weekly-photo-challenge-weathered-2/
I love it!
So, here’s is my entry for this week… 🙂
Thank you, Frank. 🙂
Hi Frank. Let me introduce you to Grandad
Grandad looks happy as ever! Great post!
Thanks Frank. He’s not a Steiff bear, but the design is similar. Sadly his growl disappeared years ago, but I’ll never part with him.
Hi Frank, Can you get me the information for your challenges. I’m gathering a lists of all challenges. https://ceenphotography.com/for-the-love-of-challenges/
Hi Cee, thank you for doing that. I will get it to you a bit later today.
here are my responses to the information that you are pulling together:
Tuesday Photo Challenge

Published weekly on Tuesday
A bit of a different take. I didn’t know that the open door was in the reflection until I cropped it. https://odaciuk.wordpress.com/2018/06/12/another-age/
Wonderful approach to the theme!
Thank-you, Frank. ❤
Hi Frank, as usual, I try to come up with a few options and decide on one choice. Here it is for my entry for the week. Have a nice week!
Lovely post, Miriam!
Thank you, Frank!
a great word for tuesday thankyou for the challenge
Wonderful post! Glad you like the theme.
This is gorgeous!! We have plans to travel to Iceland next year, so I’m racking up the ideas for our travel 🙂 I will scan my images to see if I have any photographs to fit this bill 😉
My pleasure 🙂
Lovely snap this is, Frank. The combination of deteriorated color and wood is simple but amazing.
Thank you, Hammad!
This is a thoughtful one! Here’s my entry:
Yay! I do adore being told stuff I write is wonderful … 😉 Thank you, my friend. Great prompt. May have another later in the week if you don’t mind.
Don’t mind at all!!
Hi Frank, I have gone for an age-old tradition with this contribution: https://tranature.com/2018/06/13/haibun-red-squirrel-feeder/
Cool post, even though you’re enabling those little bird feed thieves 🙂
Thank you Frank, they are not our feeders and they do keep them away from the birdfeeders, as explained in my haibun! :o)
I thought it was cool 🙂 We always look for novel ways to protect our bird feeders from them 🙂
This is a great topic, Frank. I’m anxious to see all the entries!
Thank you kindly! They should be fun!
You are most welcome.
Hi Frank, my second contribution for this week is here: https://whippetwisdom.com/2018/06/13/haiku-beyond-the-moonflowers/
Another lovely post, Xenia! Thank you!
It seems without the WPC this challenge will now grow even more what is nice in any case. Bye, bye.
I have seen increased interest and i will definitely keep it going. Have a great weekend!
Food for thought, this week’s theme, made me think of quite many things. Very nice textures in your photo, peeling paint giving that warm vintage look. 🙂 My entry is featuring geranium moments, here it is, https://doarnicol.wordpress.com/2018/06/17/cute-quotograph-and-geranium-moments/
I’m not sure why pingbacks/trackbacks sometimes work and sometimes don’t.

I set them to allow for all posts and see them working most of the time. Thank you for sharing your post!
I think it’s a bug in JetPack.
