Welcome to week 212 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!
Your twists on last week’s theme were simply awesome!! Thank you for sharing your creative thoughts with all of us! As I really felt the love, it was a natural lead in to the theme for this week: All You Need is Love!
Your challenge for the week is to share what you love, love doing, love sharing, just love, love, love! I used the Beatles as my inspiration for this theme…
The Beatles Museum in Liverpool was a truly fun place to visit and capture some of the memories that have been inspired by the Fab Four. This Yellow Submarine, with all of its garish colors, simply screams LOVE!!
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)!!
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!

Really enjoyed this one, Xenia! Lovely!
Thank you kindly dear Frank! 🤗
I so adore your fun photo for this week. I just had to play along.
What’s not to love about a yellow submarine? Great one!
A very late contribution from me after Cee Neuner’s contribution reminded me:
Late and great! Love your taking blackbird as your song choice!
I was going to go with Here Comes the Sun and then forgot about the challenge until I saw Cee’s contribution.
It’s wonderful to see how ideas come together.
If I were ever to go to England again I would love to see the Beatles Museum.
It’s a fun experience; I recommend it.
