Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 134

Three’s never a crowd!

Welcome to the 134th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!  After enjoying some Thanksgiving food, I’m finally getting caught up with things this week, so here it is…

I was overwhelmed by the volume of responses and really enjoyed the types of triples or trios that each of you shared in your posts. Many were touching, and quite a few made me laugh in enjoyment of the wit that shoed in them.  Thank you for all the great effort that you put into your posts!  I hope that each of you enjoy your posts as much as I did!

These three are still among some of my favoirte ones…

Volendam Fishing Boats

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!

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 cannot express enough the gratitude for you doing all this: First having this wonderful – high quality challenge, and secondly for taking your time to list and comment on all our entries! It is remarkable that now, you did all these comments on the Thanksgiving day (in US). Well, thank you, so much!

  2. You were wondering the story of the three shoes in my post?

    The Shoes on the Danube Bank is a memorial in Budapest, Hungary. Conceived by film director Can Togay, he created it on the east bank of the Danube River with sculptor Gyula Pauer to honour the Jews who were killed by fascist Arrow Cross militiamen in Budapest during World War II. They were ordered to take off their shoes, and were shot at the edge of the water so that their bodies fell into the river and were carried away. It represents their shoes left behind on the bank.

  3. Oh my God. This is an amazing list, Frank. Is this the largest turnout yet? I think so.
    Hope you had a beautiful Thanksgiving. Blessings to you and your wife – and thanks for highlighting my post. 🙂
    Debbie
