Welcome to week 200 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!
As this is a pretty momentous number of times to have this challenge… why not make Number the theme for this week? There are many options for using Number in your photography from a simple count to deep numerology… It’s entirely up to you and your creative brain to decide on the approach!
I look forward to the innumerable ways you can approach this theme!
Here are some numbers…
As you might expect, I took this shot at the Liverpool FC fan store in a shopping mall in the great city of Liverpool; some of my favorite numbers are on display here, so I found myself drawn to one of them and made a purchase. Do you want to guess, which number it is?
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)!!
Don’t be just a number, as you come up with your number one and two, etc. shots!
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!

Hi my dear frined how are you
Let me guess: #4 – the mighty Virgil van Dyk (or maybe #5 Gini).
Number 4 is definitely my favorite and Gini is awesome too, particularly as he’s from my hometown, Rotterdam.
Nice photo! I will try to participate this week…
That is very nice my dear friend

A lot of numbers to choose from… 🙂
Frank, happy, happy, joy, joy! Week 200. Awesome.
Here’s my two-cents for this anniversary:
I know a have a photo of team jerseys but obviously didn’t tag it as a number.
Found some others.
Numbers can be very revealing or tricky!
Here’s my take on it. https://wp.me/p9EWyp-1t5
Talking of numbers, nothing about the fab Four from Liverpool?
I have an unbelievable number for you: https://anotherglobaleater.wordpress.com/2019/11/30/train-to-nanjing/
Oh, Frank this is really cool idea, and your t-shirts look very nice – great find!
I have some too with some street numbers I found in Germany: http://www.giftsmart.com/street-numbers-urban-art/
But I have another post coming with other numbers I have photographed 🙂
Sometimes a number is a lot more than just a number … 😉
Great shot and a great topic, this week I have to dig.
Nice one, Frank. I predict a number of great posts this week!
Thank you, Sandy! They might be numerous 🙂
