Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 171

Straight lines, right angles…

Welcome to the 171st round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

Thank you for your patience! As always, I really enjoyed reading your posts and I have to say that there were a couple of posts that really surprised me with the novel, creative way, in which you approached the theme of Rectangle. Well done!! Thank you also for the excellent effort that you put in these posts! It shows in the quality and level of photography and prose and poetry that you produce.

Please enjoy each other’s posts and give some props to your fellow blogosphere community members!

Here are some more rectangles…

Colorful, yet foggy!

This scene is at the Herring Era Museum in Siglufjörður, Iceland. The town os Siglufjörður is a great place to visit; when you visit, you may notice that the two served as a backdrop for a significant number of locations of the Icelandic mystery series titled Trapped in English.

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. Once again a fabulous round-up with fun introductions to all the entries! Thanks for responding to and including my rather late submission.
    Your picture – with the colorful rectangles, the fog,the rusty old stuff, and the little yellow flowers – just made me smile.

  2. Fantastic, Frank. I love the take you had on my post – I hadn’t thought of money being a rectangular shape. 🙂 And, I enjoyed reading your blog, and those from the list as well. Really great.
    Blessings,
    Debbie
    ps – I’m leaving for Bulgaria TODAY! Going for about 1 week and 4-5 days to connect with friends and bring peace to the area.
