Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 214

Patience is rewarded!

Welcome to the 214th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!

Thank you for your patience, as i’ve been tardy; the final stages of our bathroom remodel made for a bit of extra work on my part that I hadn’t planned for. The results were worth it, I think.

Thank you for a lovely set of posts on the theme of Assemble, which were both creative and inspiring; as always, it was an absolute pleasure to read your posts and interpretations of the theme. Please, take a moment and peruse your fellow bloggers’ posts.

One of you inspired me to look for this assembly…

Geese on the Quinapoxet

If I remember correctly, it took me more than 30 shots to get these geese to line up in some semblance of proper assembly, as they didn’t heed my requests at all; luckily the light held for this period of time, which made for a rather pleasing image.

Please enjoy the following blog posts:

  1. You’ll love the post for the theme in Don’t Hold Your Breath, as it assembles a rather tasty treat!
  2. Ken hits all the right (bass) notes in his post in Pictures without Film; still a bit of work to be done before the sound is ready for the stage!
  3. Nicole brings us a sign of better times in her post in Une Photo, Un Poéme; a great set of directions are assembled on a single post!
  4. The assembly in Xenia’s post in Tranature appears to be waiting for just the right moment to get into the water! A wonderful post!
  5. The joy of using one’s own assembly skills is showcased in a lovely post in Our Other Blog: Two Sisters and Two Points of View; those Christmas treats look really good!
  6. With a couple of magnificent photos, David brings us a sizable assembly of Snow Geese in David M’s Photoblog; I can imagine the amount of noise that many geese produce!
  7. Sandy also brings us incredible numbers of birds in her post in Out of my Write Mind, as they assemble for an epic migration! Awesome post!
  8. Maria reminds us of something else that we miss in our current times with her post in Kamerapromenader; morning assembly is just not the same without being surrounded by schoolchildren!
  9. Khürt might feel challenged to assemble the words that express his feelings at the moment; his post in Island in the Net demonstrates that he can present much more than a 1,000 words with a single image!
  10. Michelle brings us a wonderful expression of human ability to assemble and create art out of anything in her post in Take a walk and discover!
  11. Susan brings us a lovely image of something that many of us yearn to re-create in her post in Musin’ with Susan: the ability to assemble around the dining room table with family and friends! Also, please take a look at Susan’s week of photos in review in Musin’ with Susan; this post is filled with wonderful images!
  12. It might be difficult to get everything to line up perfectly, as we can see in the lovely post in A Day in the Life; those ducklings don’t want to assemble in a line without a good reason!

Please let all these wonderful authors know how much you enjoy their blog posts!

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!
