Photography Challenge: Experiments


The photography challenge I joined continues to be an amazing source of creative inspiration.  This week’s prompts drew me into the realm of experimentation in terms of perspective, color, and movement.

  1. Fantastic photos! The first looks like it could have been taken through a kaleidoscope. Is that your temperature/barometer thingy in the second picture? I have one just like it! I absolutely LOVE the water photo. You must have had the shutter on quick speed to capture that moment. 🙂


    • Thanks! 🙂

      The first once was done through a large faceted hunk of glass I have sitting on my mantle. Wen I saw it, I couldn’t help but think “angles” so I went with it. 🙂

      You’ve pinned the second shot! It is indeed a Galileo thermometer. I wondered how the colors would pop if I set it out in the sun and this shot was the result of my question.

      I wish I knew how I caught that third shot. I played with so many settings, I lost track of what I did! Lol! 🙂


    • I’ve got tomorrow morning set aside to go exploring with my camera. My goal is keep finding creative aways to approach the prompts – I love how this is bringing out my inner artist. 🙂


    • It really does make me look at everything with a new perspective. I’m noticing things in my house and the most familiar surroundings that I never saw before or gave much thought. I’m loving it! 🙂


  2. Very fun shots. I love the thermometer as your example of primary colors. The color just pops. The shooting thru the glass – very, very creative! And the water shot is again such an interesting contrast in texture. I look forward to the results of your next photo safari.


    • I loved how the third shot connected to the last challenge of texture. Its like they are connected!

      I tried a number of different things for the color shot and the thermometer was the only one that really worked right from the start. Once I got it loaded on my computer, I knew it was “the” shot for the challenge!

      Today, my camera is with me while I’m out and about. Who knows what we’ll find.
