Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 133

The comfort of moss

Welcome to the 133rd round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

It was wonderful to see the great variety of Comfort all of you came up with for this week’s challenge!  I was greatly amused by a number of the posts that found a very humorous approach to the theme.  There were also some really touching posts and a number of food posts that left me hungry for more.  Thank you all for coming up with such great posts and the effort that you put into them.

Please enjoy each other’s posts and see which are most comforting to you!

Sometimes comfort can be found in Nature…

This location is in Baxter State Park in Northern Maine, and I found it very comfortable to take a nice rest in the thick beds of moss.  If only it weren’t a short rest, I would have enjoyed it even more!

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!

  1. As I look up this snap of yours, Frank, I can’t erase the flaming snaps I’m seeing on news about recent forest fires in California. Much more than just devastating it is sadly.

    1. I checked and for some reason there was no pingback in my post. You also didn’t end up in my spam folder, so I’m not clear what may have happened. I added your entry to the round up post. Thank you for participating!

      1. It’s so odd. I do have a link to your post and I checked it. You did not have to add it to your round up. I honestly just wanted to check to see what I did. But thank you for that. It was very kind of you!
