Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 120

A vast field of fields!

Welcome to the 120th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!  Another record setting week of responses!

In your posts, you went afield and explored across various fields; there were many gorgeous fields that were photographed expertly and lots of interesting commentary that you included with your posts.  It was a fun read and kept me busy for quite a while, as you did set anothe record for entries!

Thanks to all of you for putting such quality entries together!

Here’s another field, this time from our trip to Italy…

This field had caught my attention in the morning, as we passed it, but didn’t quite have the lighting that I wanted to see on it; luckily, the afternoon provided a wonderful sky and light that gave some character to the beauty that lay in front of me.

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. Hi Frank. I am testing from another WordPress blog of mine (islandlife.blog). I think the problem may be with my Island in the Net website. The test pingbacks did not appear on my Island in the Net site but they appeared on yours. I am going to spend some time trouble-shooting my website now that I know the problem isn’t on your end.

      1. Hi Frank, that pingback is coming from another website which is hosted on WordPress.com.My regular website, Island in the Net, is self-hosted and I have verified that pingbacks are enabled. I am not sure why this isn’t working.
