What is my passion when it comes to photography? Scott Thomas has invited to join his 25th assignment, asking this question, which wasn´t easy to answer right away. Scott made a post with “some reference links for looking more into this thing called passion” and I was inspired by the article written by Scott Dickerson, who explain how he define the passion in photography. My answer will after reading this be something like “The shadows created by sunlight”. I almost can´t tell how many interesting and fun challenges this subject is given me, – but I will try – by posting 25 examples the next 25 days, – since this is the 25th assignment Scott has made.
Finally, I have a gift for Scott with many thanks for all the fun and good connections you have created.
I hope you will continue this for many years.
(It´s all right to look inside!)
My little cat friend are visiting the garden every day now. We play with the stick you can see at the photo.
This cat is extremely fast and fearless, it climbs any tree in the garden, and walk out on the thinnest branches, without any problem. The other day, when it was entering another garden where some children were playing, I heard one of them ask “What is this, -is it a cat? – it looks like a lion”.
Talking of wild animals, I´d like to present you to some of the wonderful and colorful paintings of tigers the Danish painter Uffe Christoffersen has made.
When the lovely flowers you got from a dear person start withering, don’t be sorry and especially don’t throw them away. Move the vase to a calm place instead, where the flowers undisturbed can unfold their drama, without risking that your visitors will get worried, about your apparently lost energy. The changes are both very interesting and – very photogenic. Let the sun shine through the petals, and enjoy the sight. Lately I found myself receiving a lovely bouquet of tulips, thinking “they will look beautiful…when they start withering.” Of course I enjoyed them as fresh flowers first, the withering fun started one week later, and it was fun – as you can see at the photos.
The subject for this assignment was “Black and white photography”, – a challenge for a color-consumer like me. On the other hand; between white and black are the gray scale with all its tones that let us “read” any shape, just by looking at it. I have been searching my house for subjects to illustrate this, and here is the result. For the 24th time, thank you to Scott Thomas who spend time making these photo get togethers. I will look forward to the grand 25th assignment.
