Welcome to week 154 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!
Of course, after a week of Rocking entries, you fully expected that we’d Roll into this week! Yes, I gave into the tempation of using Rock and Roll in consecutive weeks. As Roll can take a number of meanings, you can roll the dice to select the one you want to use. Whether a bread roll, a bed roll, or a ball rolling down the hill, I look forward to see what wonderful ideas come rolling in this week!
Please remember to have some fun with this week’s theme!
When the tide rolls out…
As I’ve used this image a number of times for various purposes, my commitment for this week is to shoot something new to roll into this week’s round up… I have some ideas!
The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:
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)!!
Go ahead and roll with it, and let the good times roll!
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.
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!

New sounds good 🙂
Great post 😁
Thank you, Kammie!
Absolutely love this photo ! Where did you take this one ?
Thank you; I took this in Digby, Nova Scotia about 10 or so years ago.
Oh wow, so amazing with the low tide , my son is out in Halifax in university, I’m doing more trips out there now lol to “visit “ him and hopefully get some photos I normally wouldn’t
Nova Scotia is simply lovely! You will get some great photo opportunities there.
I agree ! Will go back, I’d like to go to Newfoundland as well , iceberg ally looks cool as well
Awesome post, Shelley! You’re on a roll!
Those rolls look good!
Love that photo – and here is my entry for Roll. One photo used before, just like yours…https://lagottocattleya.wordpress.com/2019/04/02/tuesday-photo-challenge-roll/
That is a stunning train station! I bet the trains keep rolling in!
I had a faint suspicion that this topic was just waiting to roll in.
Hi Frank, I still love this photograph and am happy to see it again! I’ve taken a creative interpretation of the theme and created a post on ‘how we roll’: https://whippetwisdom.com/2019/04/02/villanelle-a-voice-that-knows/
Wonderful post, Xenia! The waves keep rolling in!! That’s how we roll 🙂
Thank you Frank! 🙂🙋♀️
Great old style ferry!
Not Maggie this time, but her partner in crime, Buddy.
Nothing like rolling in something stinky! Great post. It reminds me of a time way back in the Netherlands, when our dog escaped after getting washed…only to find some rotting fish and roll in it 🙂
How lovely………….. not!
Amazing how drastically the water level change with the tide. Lovely photo!
Thank you! Great rolling waves!!
Rolling in late!
Rolling in with a winner!
I adore drastic tides. There is something unearthly and yet totally earth-locking about it (well, the moon, too, but ya know… she’s kin on account of being relatively close … ;))
Here’s my contribution on the topic of rolling (or, well … not!)
Love the suspense!
Great interpretation with your photo, Frank! I’ll do my best this week.
Thank you, Debbie. I am looking forward to it!
Looks like this challenge is on a roll! Here’s my entry: https://outofmywritemind.com/2019/04/03/rolling-along/
You rolled a winner! Nice post.
Thanks much, Frank.
Great theme! Here’s my entry: https://aliveandtrekking.com/2019/04/05/rolling/
That’s a wonderful photo!
Perhaps this could one day be a museum piece!!
That is fantastic! Love your take on this week’s theme!
Thank you. It was fun!
Hi Frank, here is my entry for the week. 😀
Great post, Cee!
I’ve been slow this week – probably because of the concrete blocks that have replaced the wheels!
Fantastic post! That is such a classic vehicle!
Oh! How fun!
Here’s my take … (literally, in some way .. ;))
🙂 Thanks, Frank!
