It’s Saturday so I’ve a little time to sort through some more photos from one of my recent trips back home.

This time it’s Jac’s turn in front of the lens rather than behind it 😉

Photo Challenge: Object

This week’s challenge had me thinking a bit.

Use one tangible object as both your inspiration and subject

What could I take a snap of, within the building site we’re inhabiting, that might make for an interesting shot?

I parked that thought as I continued sanding and plastering the house through the weekend. Then it dawned on me. We had just unpacked some coffee cup coasters we bought in Perth and you’ll see why below but they make an excellent accompaniment in the frame to my object of choice.

My wedding ring. Pictured below with the ring my wife gave me when we got engaged.

Now back to dreaming of the house being fully habitable 🙂

Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition

An interesting challenge this week – juxtaposition, with this post being brought to you by the colour yellow. Read on to find out why.

Dictionary.com tells us:
jux·ta·po·si·tion [juhk-stuh-puh-zish-uhn] – noun
1. an act or instance of placing close together or side by side, especially for comparison or contrast.
2. the state of being close together or side by side.
Origin:1655–65; < Latin juxtā side by side + < French position.

Looking around the kitchen table I’m thinking there should be a few items I can gather that would look great juxtaposed and sure enough, I’ve a mostly full bottle of beer (thanks Monteith’s) along with a rather refreshing looking glass of carbonated water (bubbles by Sodastream).

Putting them together (and playing with my new 35mm lens) produced the shots below – bonus being Cath’s birthday flowers to enhance the backdrop.

Purely co-incidental that we’re mostly yellow on this shoot, that’s just how it turned out 🙂

Right, that’s enough typing, the beer is getting warm…
