Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 140

Your posts warmed my heart!

Welcome to the 140th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

This delayed round up starts us on the ground floor for the year; it’s nice to have finished the flooring project and start getting caught up on therest of my life.

Thank you for your patience and the wonderful Cold and Warm posts that you created! Despite the holiday season there were lots of creative entries for the week and I really enjoyed reading them.

I hope that you enjoy reading each other’s posts and have a wonderful New Year!

Here’s one way to deal with the cold…

Stuff, the Cardigan

When he first came home with us, December of 2017, it was pretty cold outside and Stuff was still a little, bitty thing. So we got him a cute little coat to keep him warm while going into the cold outside. Nowadays, he’s a sturdy 36 pounds of dog with a lush coat of his own, so he doesn’t mind the cold at all!

The following were this week’s participants in the challenge with links to their posts:

  1. This week, pensivity101 starts things off with the warm glow of the Sun, despite the chilly temperatures!
  2. In Life Amazing‘s post, we get a great view of Christmas at her house and staying warm with the right coat!
  3. Another great post in A Day in the Life catches the lovely warm glow on a very cold day…
  4. Jase’s post in Proscenium sings a little tune that Tom Petty might have appreciated, and it fits the season!
  5. Maria has some excellent snowboots in KameraPromenader; I’m sure that those keep her feet warm. Those snow crystals are magical!
  6. Woolly shares the spirit of the season in Woolly Muses, as he captured a great tree and some cool decorations (it was cool enough to think about wearing more than shorts).
  7. Tatiana captures some rather hot looking fountains in her post in Vegas Great Attractions; although I’m not sure that it’s ever cold there…
  8. Penny’s poem in Penny Wilson Writes really exemplifies both the hot and cold; it’s a great read!

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. That is an adorable photo of your dog. I love that his name is Stuff. Perfectly suits him. 😊

    I’m starting a new blog series tomorrow on Self-forgiveness and Money. Can you send positive vibes my way? Thanks, Frank.

    Glad you got the flooring project done.
    Blessings,
    Debbie
