Tuesday Photo Challenge – Return

Return travel…

Welcome to week 209 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

Back from a bit of a hiatus, I thought it might be a good idea to celebrate the idea of Return for this week’s theme… Whether it’s the travel to return home, a return to normalcy, the return of a book or a favor… There are many great returns in our lives! Your challenge is to connect one of those returns to an image of your choosing this week. Feel free to take any direction you’d like to take on this theme, and have fun with it!

Looking forward to seeing many happy returns!

Returning to Boston…

Back in Boston…

Upon arrival at Logan Airport from New York’s John F. Kennedy airport, I didn’t expect a large line for luggage, as there were only 5 passengers on the flight… The emptiness of the baggage claim area was stunning! Good news, is that as I walked to the carousel, my bag came out and I was outside in seconds to meet my wife!

The full rules of this challenge are in TPC Guidelines, but here’s the tl;dr:

  • Write a post with an image for this week’s topic
  • Please tag your post with fpj-photo-challenge (if you’re not sure about how tags work, please check out this WordPress article about tagging posts)
  • 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)!!

Stay safe, healthy and let’s work toward a return to our preferred state of being!

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. Welcome Back Frank. Hoping you are feeling comfort and love from your blogging community. Clearly you are missed. 🤗. That photo of Logan is an anomaly to say the least.

  2. Hello Frank, I am missing the Tuesday challenge! I hope that you are well and that the challenge will resume. I know that you lost your mom and that the pandemic has caused a lot of upheaval. Take care.

  3. I hope all is well with you and yours during “these days.” My last traveling was in February and Logan looked far different than it did for you in May. I am also missing your Tuesday photo challenge. With each day blending into the next, it does help me keep track.😉

  4. So good to reconnect with you, Frank. Great topic––I contributed, hope the link worked (I’m finally using the new WordPress block format. 🙂 )
    Welcome back, and I hope you had a good trip and that you and your wife are both doing well!

      1. Hi Khurt – I’m just seeing this comment now, my apologies. Have you heard from Frank?

        I hope he’s ok. He’s a wonderful man.

        Let me know.

        Best to you, Khurt.
