Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 154

Rolling along Tuscany!

Welcome to the 154th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

Wow! Those entries rolled in rather nicely! There were a lot of creative approaches to our Roll theme, of which the dogs rolling certainly made me smile every time! Waves, gently rolling to the shore, and hills rolling across the horizon were fun to behold! Or rolling along the hills on a mountain bike! They were all a lot of fun to read.

Thank you all for the great posts that you put together and the fun you created!

As I wasn’t ecstatic about the rolling shot that I captured, I thought I’d bring two aspects of roll in one shot…

Fields of Tuscany

    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 post on Tenerife – mentioned here again – was for the challenge on rocks (round-up of last week). Just want to avoid any rolling misunderstandings. All the best! Ulli

  2. Frank, I am so sorry I missed the deadline for the roundup. I drove several hours around my state getting the right photos for my take on the challenge, but my website is performing poorly and keeps going offline.

  3. Gorgeous photo, Frank! I love Tuscany, it’s one of my favorite places. Thanks for another great photo challenge. 🙂

    I have a Money Mondays post that I just did today, and I’m hoping it will fit in with tomorrow’s theme. Has to do with observing as a key to letting go. We’ll see!
    Blessings and have a good week,
    Debbie
