Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 176

Gently flowing over the edge…

Welcome to the 176th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge! My apologies for being a tad late with this edition; it’s good that I love my job, as it can demand a bit much of my time once in a while!

You really put on a wonderful display of what Fall means to you! Your creative posts ranged from those that made me laugh out loud to those that made me just sit back and appreciate the great colors of the season! There were amazing waterfalls, places where you don’t want to fall, and a fall guy! Thank you for all the thoughtful and wonderful work that you put into all of your posts!

Please tell one another what you like about all these great posts!!

Here’s a waterfall that I enjoyed this past weekend…

Devil’s Hopyard Falls, East Haddam, CT

This waterfall is in Devil’s Hopyard State Park in East Haddam, CT; even though the amount of water flowing on this Sunday was not spectacular, the scenery still stands out, as the water flows across the rock formations.

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. Wow Frank – the 176th edition of your Photo Challenge. Who knew?!

    Beautiful waterfall, and it was fun to check out the posts. That’s quite a line up.

    I’m wondering if you ever visit NY? If so, it would be nice to meet you in person. Best way to be in touch is by my email (info@forgivingconnects.com).

    I wish you and your wife all the best!
    Debbie
