LAUGH, HEARTS, TREES AND DOORS
Jenn at Artists Play Room has asked us for an interpretation of 'Laugh' as her theme this week. I decided to go for the personal approach, and this is a photograph my daughter took of me last year. I hate having my photograph taken, and I was amazed that she could capture this shot of me laughing. Hope this suits the theme Jenn.
With the topic of 'Hearts' at Take a Word the difficulty was to think of something a little different, and for this challenge I kept to the personal approach. When I thought of 'Hearts' my mind said 'Where does my heart lie?' - and there is only one answer to that. So this image contains photos of our wedding day and one taken by my daughter of ourselves as we were last year. I chose this photo because it's one I really do like and gives the feeling of our closeness.
You may notice that in the wedding day photo Dev is wearing a medal - my mother added a medal ribbon to a chocolate medal and gave it to him saying 'You deserve a medal for marrying our Jez'! Even after all this time he still has the medal.
At So Artful Challenges the theme is 'Trees'. This is a photograph I took with a pinhole camera some years ago, cropped to a circle on Photoshop and with a frame added. I like the unusual angle and the mysterious effect the pinhole camera achieved.
Over at Art Journal Journey the challenge is 'Doors'. Whenever we are out and about I love taking photographs of doors and windows, and because the doors are invariably closed I can't help wondering what lies behind them.
