This is my second post for this week’s WordPress photo challenge – which is to give an example of what the word “Ephemeral” means to us. In essence it means “Lasting for a very short time”.
The second photo I have chosen was when I was first learning how to perfect the art of light painting. I had seen them before and thought it would be too hard. But in fact, once the technique has been explained, it is quite easy to replicate the result. This is not very artistic, however it was my first attempt — and you can imagine that if another shot was taken later, the result would differ. As I moved during the capture, my arms became semi-transparent. Again, I think this is a decent example of what the word means.

So I have chosen a photo I took while participating in a night photography class in Brisbane (Australia). I was shooting across the Brisbane River to the central business district and as you’ll see, there were ghost-like semi transparent effects occurring. This was because I had the lens open for a number of seconds, so anyone walking past or moving while in the capture area, became one of those “ghosts”. If I had taken another photo seconds later, they would not have been there. I think this is a decent example of the word.
Here is my entry in WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge, with the topic of Symmetry.
The photos were taken by me during the 2014 Vivid Festival in Sydney, Australia. The festival lights up well know iconic buildings throughout the main CBD area with amazing laser shows.
There is a mixture of symmetry and abstract that mesh well to produce stunning experiences for all in attendance.
Here is my entry in WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge, with the topic of Depth — the topic was described in this way:
“This week, share with us your take on “depth” — you can take it literally, like me, by showing something (a dense forest, your lawn after a blizzard) that suggests volume, a distance between surface and bottom. Or go with a more figurative approach: use a deep color palette, play with your image’s depth of field, or highlight a person, a place, or an object to which you feel deeply connected.”
I love the effects one can achieve when using depth of field. These 4 photos I think are good examples of it.
