Thursday’s Special

Paula (Lost in Translation) set a very difficult and challenging photo challenge last week. It almost had me stumped. I had an idea in my head, but lacked the vision to translate the idea into an image. Conceptual photography is what she asked for. The art of creating photographs that illustrate an idea.

Be it an illustration of a story, a dramatic moment or even just some simple things in life that would bring a smile to your face, a good conceptual portrait should never leave you indifferent.

walk slowly and think quietly;
observe what is around you,
focus your mind.
breathe
slowly.
stay in control.
concentrate.
listen to nature.
birdsong;
the wind in the trees;
leaves
falling.
Mindfulness
Meditation
Calmness.

I have lived in the UK for most of my life, but when young I definitely had wanderlust and even ended up living in South Africa for several years which was a wonderful experience. I now look forward to a long and leisurely retirement doing what I like most - gardening, photography, walking and travelling.
