My mother sadly died 25 years ago this month – had she lived she would have just turned 101. This photo of her was probably taken when she was in her mid twenties and looking very happy, smiling for the photographer. It was probably sent to her then fiancé, my father, who was serving in the RAF as an Air-Sea Rescue medical officer. Of course the original photo was not given the pop art treatment – this is very much one of a kind.
KindaSquare is the theme this month as Becky is hoping we might, in the final squares of 2020, encourage and promote kindness. A year I don’t think any of us will forget in a hurry. If you would like to join in then visit the link – you can always post 31 squares tomorrow!
And thanks once again to our wonderful host, the gorgeous Becky, who must have square eyes by now!
This month Becky (the Queen of Squares) has challenged us to find lines. In Squares naturally. That is the only proper ‘rule’. I have been dipping into the archives for this one, as well as finding local lines.
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 conceptualportrait should never leave you indifferent.
