Mirroring life…

This week the WordPress Challenge is simply titled: Mirror.

This week, show us a mirror. You can take this photo challenge literally, and find reflections in mirrors, or in the stillness of a natural body of water. Live in an urban area? Some skyscrapers are beautifully reflective of the cityscape around them. Or, use this challenge to take a photo of yourself in the mirror.

I had a look through some of my photos and was amazed at how many meet this challenge — as I have commented in the past, quite often one takes a photo with something in mind, only to find out that over time that same photo can mean something else.

I hope you enjoy my shots!



WPC: Fun

This week, the WordPress guest blogger has decided that we should express our ideas around the idea of Fun:

This week’s theme is simple: share a photo of something fun! Let’s all shake our booties, literal or figurative.

So much to work with, and many possibilities in my own collection of photos. I’ve settled on 2 I took last summer — at a night market here in Brisbane (Australia).  I love the experience of browsing various wares at night, especially on a balmy summer’s night.



WordPress Weekly Challenge: Opposites

This week’s photo challenge made me put my thinking cap on to come up with a worthwhile post:

This week, make two opposing elements come together (or clash in dissonance) in one photo. In your photo this week, show how opposites can tell a story about people, places, or objects. The tension can reside in what you choose to show — old vs. new, big vs. small, dark vs. light — or in how you frame and design your shot. I look forward to seeing your entries! 

When you think about it, there are many opposites in life.  What was I to show to explain that? Hmmmmm…..













I came up with this one photo of an event that took place in the Brisbane CBD recently — the Festival of Chariots, organised by the International Society for Krishna Consciousness (ISKCON). The celebration centred on a massive hand-drawn chariot that wound its way through inner-city streets to come to rest at King George Square. The photo highlights the multicultural nature of Brisbane.  Here was a chariot with religious connections and directly behind it, an old church that has been surrounded by massive skyscrapers. So the opposites were the religious items, as well as the new and old buildings.


Tuesday Photo Challenge: Fence

Frank at Dutch Goes the Photo provides a challenge every Tuesday.  I like the challenges because they keep me on track with my posting routine, and I also get to read some really cool stuff from others in this world.

So this week the challenge is Fence. I looked through my photos once again and found a plethora of shots I could use.  I was reminded that there are many forms of fences and they serve differing purposes.

I hope you have enjoyed my photos.  Happy reading!  🙂
