Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 193

Eight days a week?

Welcome to the 193rd round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge! My apologies for the delay in getting this round up posted.

Your retrospectives were fantastic with lots of great memories in your posts and looks back across the years. There were some rather wonderful approaches to the theme, with a retro among them and a very creative look at the view from a window over the years!! Thank you for the all of your creative outpouring.

I’m looking forward to continuing this trend throughout all of 2020!

Here’s a retrospective of my visit to Liverpool….

This slideshow is from my visit to Liverpool last year and has another piece of retrospective going back into the re-creation of the Cavern Club stage, which gives us the feeling that the lads from way back could step into the light to rock & roll! Looking back on this trip brings memories of great places to visit and a match well played!

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!
