Goodbye, straight lines. Hello, curves.

This week, share your take on “rounded.” it’s a broad theme, so I look forward to your personal interpretations, whether you choose to focus on a curving street, limbs caught mid-way through a dance, a bowl of fruit (think of all the round shapes!), or any other object, landscape, or texture that fits within your definition of the theme. As always, less-literal takes are equally welcome.

Layered: The Daily Post Photo Challange.


This week, let’s explore the interplay of texture and depth.

This week, share with us a layered image of your own. The topic is wide open, as long as you focus on the interplay of depth, density, and texture (or just choose one of these elements if you’d like). Strata of clouds, a shirt collar peeking through a sweater, a cross-section of an onion: you can keep your interpretation as literal or as figurative as you wish.

Waiting: The Daily Post Photo Challange


Waiting for the rain to lift so that the Spring Festival in Upper Hutt could be dry this year. https://www.eventfinda.co.nz/2017/upper-hutt-spring-festival/wellington-region

It did not happen. Year after year we got rain and cold winds. Waiting for better weather did not help.

I had a Soroptimist business meeting 10 am Saturday morning. I took the photo from the window where we were sitting in the lounge. I thought that everybody was waiting for the sky to clear. It never did.

The Daily Post Photo Challenge says:

Share a snapshot that shows a sense of waiting.

Structure: The Daily Post Photo Challenge


This week, share with us the structure of something typically overlooked.

More info about the challenge:

STRUCTURE

3. a complex system considered from the point of view of the whole rather than of any single part: the structure of modern science. 4. anything composed of parts arranged together in some way; an organization.

One of the After School Care boys made this “structure”. It works with four batteries.

Without structure, we won’t see a flower.

Textures: The daily Post Photo Challenge


Ben Huberman at:

https://dailypost.wordpress.com/photo-challenges/textures/

says: Photography is a primarily visual medium, but we can experience it with more than one sense. This week, focus on the tactile element of the objects you shoot, whether it’s one distinct quality — softness, smoothness, graininess, or any other texture you find interesting — or a combination of several within one frame.

Taking photos gives me a lot of satisfaction especially when the photos are special like the following ones:IMG_2964

UNUSUAL

Two months ago I held a very unusual object in my hand. I also had the opportunity to hang it around my neck to feel how it feels.

Mary Fisher our own Upper Hutt, New Zealand world champion Paralympic swimmer 2016, was the guest speaker at our monthly Soroptimist meeting.

https://www.facebook.com/MaryFisherNZ/

She told us about the excitement of winning a gold medal at Rio Paralympic games.

The medal has small balls in it. The gold one has the most in it. It is for the blind to hear the sound of it and recognise which one it is!

Mary’s gold medal

Two more medals.

We could all touch and hold it!

Unusual indeed.

If you’re gonna let me down, let me down gently
Don’t pretend that you don’t want me
Our love ain’t water under the bridge
If you’re gonna let me down, let me down gently
Don’t pretend that you don’t want me
Our love ain’t water under the bridge
Say that our love ain’t water under the bridge

Water Under the Bridge
