Lens-Artists Challenge #90 – Distance

This week, it’s Tina’s turn at Lens-Artists photo challenge and she challenges us with “Distance“.

When it comes to distance, I first think about being far away i.e. in one of my dream locations.

Seychelles

coming to Lisboa
exotic fruits are coming from far away
watching a skyline from a distance
coming from far away

Take care!

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #86: Change Your Perspective

It’s Patti’s turn to challenge us this week at Lens-Artists Photo Challenge and she asks us to change our point of view. The general rule is shooting at eye level while standing in front of your subject. But sometimes it’s necessary to ‘break’ this rule and do something different.

Laying down is one of the easiest things you can do when it comes to “changing the point of view”.

 

Or to get closer

 

Another option is looking down

or up

or simply holding the camera over the head

or try to combine some of these ideas:

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #85: treasure hunt

This week’s theme at The lens artist is “treasure hunt”, Tina organized for us. So, what’s a treasure? I guess, some of us first think of gems, gold or other stuff considers as very valuable.

For me, my trip to the Seychelles Islands was such a gem.

 

For other people hunting or fishing is the hunt for a treasure

 

Finding a partner who shares your beliefs, preferences, and hobbies is finding a treasure.

 

But, also in nature, you can find a treasure.

But I guess, the most precious treasures we have, are our kids!

 

Take care!

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #83: narrow

This week’s theme at The lens artist is “narrow”. Amy showed some of her images own as an example. I tend to be the guy for epic wide areas. But, I also have met very narrowly places.

This is the narrowest public street I’ve ever walked along: Praque

 

Or have you ever been in a coal mine hundreds of meters below the surface of our beautiful planet?

Even nature is able to create narrow passages. She usually uses water for that job:

 

Let’s have a walk through a tower:

There are narrow and steep staircases in plants like here in a steel plant.

The worker had not much room for their work when they finally arrived at the side of the blast furnace. You can see the strait timbers on the ground: that’s a passage!!!

 

But, I like nature much more:

Do you like walking along a narrow path through the forest or the steps leading you to a wine yard?

 

Sometimes, mother nature creates narrow views to see, what she’s hiding:

 

Some guys love narrow places like these guillemots. The ledges are so small, but broad enough for them to breed!

 

 

Take care!
