Tuesday Photo Challenge – Bank

Along the Kharkiv, we walk!

Welcome to week 144 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge.

Last week’s entries were wonderful and filled with breezy creativity! So, after a week of shooting the Breeze, I thought it might be time to go with the flow and walk along the Bank. This week’s theme gives me enough confidence to bank on a wonderful set of creative responses from all of you fantastic contributors!

Yes, you guessed it! This is another theme that can take into numerous directions, all of which should be a lot of fun to explore. I look forward to reading all of your approaches!

Here’s a nice bank to walk alongside…

Walking along the Kharkiv

Last year, I had the pleasure of visiting Kharkiv in the Ukraine, on a work trip. I enjoyed the hospitality of the wonderful people and was impressed by the size and beauty of the city! Well worth a visit!

The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:

  • Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
  • Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
  • Create a pingback link to this post, so that I can create a post showing all of the submissions over the week (note: pingbacks may not appear immediately, as my site is set up to require approval for linking to it; helps against previous bad experiences with spamming)
  • Have fun creating something new (or sharing something old)!!

So, sit down by the bank and let creative ideas flow by!

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. My error…the theme was Bank, as I had used Flow before. Unfortunately, the heading change didn’t take (and I didn’t pay attention 🙂 ). Good thing is that flow and bank work well together 🙂

  1. Wow, this is beautiful, Frank! The post I did this week on Self-forgiveness and Money perfectly relates…it’s about overcoming a fear of falling when I take a risk and knowing that love is a part of learning. AND going with the flow of how I express myself. Here it is: https://forgivingconnects.com/2019/01/21/its-money-mondays-topic-self-forgiveness-and-money/
    Blessings to you, Frank! Great challenge.

    ps – my friend (and ex-partner – we just split up) is a professional photographer and you’ll see a beautiful photo from him as part of this week’s contribution. He just finished his website!!

    1. It’s a perfect bit of cosmic coincidence that you’re doing a group on Self-Forgiveness and Money and this week’s theme is Bank! Sorry to read about your fall while running and about the split up; great to see that you’re still friends and I agree that his photo of you is beautiful! Heal your wounds and tread lightly while running!

      Best wishes to you, Debbie!
