January Photo a Day 2013…Street

Day 7. Street: Take a photo of a streetscape.

My offering for today’s prompt…Two streetscapes from two different cities with very similar feels… Both cities have a laid back feel during the day and then at night they come alive…Do you know these streets?

What do the prompts mean?

There are no rules when playing along with photo a day, you can be creative as you like! Interpret the prompt as you please. For those that need a little help, some more suggested details about each prompt are below.

8. Something beginning with ‘T’: Take a photo of something today starting with the letter ‘T’.
9. Paper: Take a photo of something made from paper. Perhaps it’s someone reading the newspaper, or it could be wrapping paper. Think outside the square.
10. One o’clock: Take a photo of whatever you’re doing in the hour between one and two. It could be in the middle of the night {you party animal, you!} or during the day.
11. Water: Perhaps it’s the beach, a river, water in a glass, the bath {keep it PG!} or even the rain.
12. Surprise: I love when I stumble across coins when I’m walking. It’s a lovely surprise. That would be a lucky photo for me. Can you think of a way to capture surprise?
13. Circle: Look as you go about today for things shaped in circles. Is it the tyres on a bus? A big sign? Or something else?
14. Something yellow: Find something yellow in your travels today and take a photo.
15. An ordinary moment: Choose an ordinary moment and capture it. Is it you grabbing your daily coffee? Or playing with the kids? Or something that you do often and consider it as kinda ordinary?
16. Two things: Look for things in pairs today. Is it a lovely old couple that you see from behind? Or the salt and pepper shakers sitting on the bench? Find two things and take a photo.
17. Ready: Is it a photo of your dinner being ready? Or you ready to catch the bus? Or something else. It’s a toughy – but it will get your mind thinking!
18. Shadow: Find a shadow and shoot it. It could be your own, or a shadow of something else. Shadows look great with a black and white filter over the top {just sayin!}.
19. Delicious: What’s delicious to you? Is it the chubby cheeks of your toddler, the hunk at the gym or a cake you plan on eating for afternoon tea?
20. Something you saw: Go about your day with eyes wide open and take a photo of something you saw.
21. What you do: Do you go to school? Train elephants at the circus? Write at home? Play mum to your kids? Act as CEO to a big business? Paint in your spare time? Dance when no one is looking? Take a photo of what you do {something that makes you ‘you’} and share it.
22. Corner: It could be a sharp corner of a building, a corner of an artwork, a corner of your home or something else. Corners are everywhere. Shoot one.
23. Electric: This could be a simple photo of your toaster {but get creative} or something else electric.
24. Stripes: Look for stripes in your everyday. They could be in the zebra crossing on the road, or in your outfit or somewhere else.
25. Landscape: Step back and take a photo of a landscape near you. Or even take a little trip just for the photo. Would be nice to explore your town for a beautiful photo.
26. Together: There are many definitions for together. One is: In or into a single group, mass, or place. Take a photo of together, whichever definition you’d like to use.
27. Sun: Whether the sun is out in full force, or hiding behind the clouds today – take a photo of it. Or you could get creative and take a photo of sunlight or some other interpretation.
28. Through: Take a photo of looking through something – through the window, through the gate, through the trees… whatever you please.
29. Grow: People do it, plants do it too… get creative and take a photo of something that grows.
30. Down: Is it looking down or something that makes you feel down? Interpret it however you like.
31. Yourself: Take a photo of yourself. Or something that represents you.

October Photo a Day Challenge: Day 10

October Photo a Day Challenge is Emotion…

It isn’t unusual for me to experience a wide range of emotions each day.  On any given day my emotions can swing from relaxed to anxious, confident to concerned and overwhelmed to calm all before I finish my morning cup of coffee…Emotions are any strong agitation of the feelings caused by experiencing joy, love, sorrow, fear, hate or the like.

I wonder what emotion I was experiencing when this photo was taken…

Here are the remaining October Photo a Day Challenge prompts:

11. Something close-up: These photos might be a little mysterious. Take a photo of something really close-up.

17. Fruit: Take a photo of a piece of fruit, or a few.

18. Made you smile today: What made you smile today? Find it. Shoot it. Share it.

19. Letters: Take a photo of letters. They might make up a poster, or something bigger. Or even be mail?

20. 4 o’clock: Take a photo a 4am or 4pm – whatever you’re doing at that time.

22. In your town: Take a photo of something from where you live. It might be a building, people, park or something else.

WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge…Unfocused

Unfocused….Not seeing clearly, or not giving a clear image, faint, invisible, subtle, blurred, faintly, unseen, fuzzy, undetected.  Without a clear purpose, aim, or direction, unstructured, haphazard, chaotic, undisciplined, disorganized, unplanned, hasty.

 

Ecclesiastes 6:9 “Better is the sight of the eyes (the enjoyment of what is available to one) than the cravings of wandering desire.  This is also vanity (emptiness, falsity, and futility) and a striving after the wind and a feeding on it!

A-Z Archive: L! Challenge…Light!

A-Z Archive: L! Challenge…Light Box!  I have been looking forward to sharing these photos with you since the beginning of this challenge.

This week’s topic for our “A-Z Archive” photo challenge: the “L” archive: introduce one photo of your archive with a “L” Keyword. – I’m sure you’ll find a picture: tag with “A-Z Archive” and put a link on your page to FrizzText, so we’ll get a trackback-list including your post!

These photographs were taken with my iphone…I really had no other option.  Photographs in the museum are forbidden.  However, I could not pass up the opportunity to capture the feeling of standing in a rainbow. I know…iphone photos…don’t be a hater!

This is part of a Carlos Cruz-Diez art exhibit.  If you can believe this is a completely white room…there are light boxes positioned through out the rooms.  As you move through the rooms the color in the room changes…the color of the room is dependent on your position to the light box and the angle of the room and the bending and blending of the light

I originally posted this slideshow in a post last March called Standing in a Rainbow.  I hope you enjoy the show!
