Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 141

One good floor deserves another!

Welcome to the 141st round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

We started on the ground floor for this year and it looks to have raised the bar to a new level! The floors are magnificent, as you took the theme and interpreted it with creativity and flair! I was floored by some of the posts, and there were definitely some smilers! Thank you for making it a pleasure to read and round up your entries!

Have fun reading these posts and let one another know when you enjoy them!

Here’s another type of floor that can be very inviting…

Breathe

This very inviting forest floor is in Baxter State Park in Northern Maine; the mosses make this an extremely comfortable location to take a nap! I very much enjoyed exploring here.

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

  1. Sarah’s post in By Sarah starts things off this week with a beautiful floor that reminds me of castles and manors!
  2. Jase’s post in Proscenium has Gracie at her best, as she’s shaking it off! Must have been an epic party!
  3. Kammie went pretty punny in her post in Nut House Central, but we’ll forgive her with those great photos!
  4. In Life Amazing‘s post, there is a true appreciation for floors, and I really do like that new kitchen floor!
  5. Maria captured some great floors in her post in KameraPromenader; that see-through floor is a bit scary, though!
  6. This week, Hammad has trouble finding himself on the right floor in his post in Blog of Hammad Rais; those shopping malls can make it difficult! In a second post on this week’s theme, we find a wondrous, sacred floor in the Blog of Hammad Rais.
  7. In Don’t Hold Your Breath, there is a definite ground floor approach to ambush photography… it’s pretty cool!
  8. Margo’s post in That Little Voice gives us stunning views of floor art, which you cannot help but admire!
  9. I enjoy mosaic floors and the post in theonlyD800inthehameau has a stunning detail of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque floor.
  10. Woolly finds us a rather old floor in his post in Woolly Muses, as it is over 1900 years old…
  11. Sandy starts us out on the ground floor in Out of my Write Mind with a gorgeous photo and lovely poem!
  12. Eivor and Pearl explore the forest floor in WhippetWisdom, as Xenia captured them and a great tanka!
  13. Alice’s post in the 59 Club takes us to a different view of the Empire State Building, which is a magnificent location!
  14. This week, pensivity101 takes a more pragmatic approach to laminate flooring than I did; carpet tile is easier on the knees 🙂
  15. Ron’s post in Progressing into Solitude takes the floor all the way to the door; I wonder where this door is?
  16. Irene’s post in Heaven’s Sunshine rightly asks about what people observe in the daily travels through this world…
  17. Sanah’s interesting post in A Pause for Nature examines the interplay between light and floor, which creates some unexpected patterns!
  18. Brian’s captures in Bushboys World find some really cool floors, of which I really love the play of the light on the floor of the Segrada Familia.
  19. In Junk Boat Travels, Jackie captures some of the stunning floors of the Alhambra, made with such simple materials!
  20. Debbie documents a supreme floor in her post in Travel with Intent; that floor took a bit more effort than the one I put in 🙂
  21. Cee’s photos in Cee’s Photography show us some classic floors, as well as a sigh that I should have had!
  22. Na’ama’s post in Na’ama Yehuda reveals the stunning abilities of people in antiquity and features a playful poem!
  23. In Land of Images‘s post, we find out what can be discovered under an old cupboard; that is some vintage flooring!
  24. Susan goes very small in her Musin’ with Susan post, as she puts those little people to work!
  25. This week’s post in One letter UP – diary 2.0 shares the memories of a floor over the years, as babies grow up…

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. I love this photograph of the forest floor in Northern Maine, it looks very similar to the forests in the Northern Highlands🌲 Thank you again for this lovely challenge Frank and for a great round-up 🙂

  2. I had fun in this week’s challenge. Originally planned for one but decided to go for the second as soon as I saw the sacred floor 🙂
    Thank you very much, Frank and have a nice week!

  3. Hello, I had a miserable weekend. Damp (it’s still raining today), cold and grey. My wife is sick so I never left the house. So begins the part of the year, I call the grey death. Not cold enough for snow, and the damp keeps warmth away from my body core.
