Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 144

Welcome to the 144th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

You certainly made Bank this week, despite the confusion that I started by not catching that the post title update didn’t take… My apologies for that! As a result of this theme, your entries ranged from memory banks to savings banks and plenty of river banks! Your creativity was phenomenal, both in your photography and your writings.

Thank you very much for providing me with another week of wonderful reading, which I enjoy immensely!

It’s often worth the risk to get to the other bank….

Caution: bridge may wobble!

This shot is from 2013, when my wife and I visited Scotland. This is in the lovely city of Inverness, as I just had to capture the church’s reflection in the water. We visited the other bank, so I can attest that this bridge has significant wobble, particularly as you get close to the center!

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. Thank you for the wonderful roundup and your beautiful image from the banks of the river Ness Frank! We walked across this bridge nine years ago and it was very wobbly then too!😁
