Weekly Photo Challenge: Warmth

“Warmth” certainly gives plenty of scope for interpretation.

Below is one take on it: an image from a few years ago of a very small and very warm grandson surrounded by very warm colours in a children’s playground in Abu Dhabi (it was October: trust me, it was warm).

For a completely different take on “warmth”, here is my contribution on this topic for last month’s ‘Photography 101’ challenge.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Yellow

To fit this week’s theme, another image from the inexhaustible fount of photographic possibilities that is Dubai Mall. This one is a lantern, or chandelier if you prefer. I placed the camera on the floor and hovered around it protectively while the exposure was made.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Twinkle

Another image from Dubai Mall, this one of an ornamental pool on the way down to the underground car park (it’s Dubai, what do you expect?)

Weekly Photo Challenge: Gone But Not Forgotten

A discarded flower, perhaps given added poignancy by the fact that it had been a buttonhole worn at a wedding I attended last summer.

Photography 101: Triumph

My grandson triumphantly raises his arms as his bowling ball heads down the lane for a strike.

As a point of information, this is the boy who was taking a peek at his brother here.

Oh, and the plaster cast came about after he jumped out of a tree. As any self-respecting six-year old would, obviously.

Photography 101: Double

These popped up together earlier this year in a window box that had been sewn with an unspecified seed mixture.

Respecting the brief for today’s challenge, the image has been rotated 90° anti-clockwise into a landscape view, which certainly looks more compelling than the ‘as shot’ portrait mode (look at it sideways and you’ll see what I mean).

Photography 101: Edge

The weir on the Vienne river at Confolens provides a clear edge itself, as well as linking the two banks (also edges).
