K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Good morning and welcome to a new week and a new edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge

You have my sympathy if you are waking up to another Monday at work, because I’m on holiday for a couple of days and this post is automatically scheduled (there’s no chance I’m actually awake as this is posted) since I managed to get it all edited last night.

This week’s theme was; Remembrance, to coincide with armistice day, commemorating the end of World War I, as a tribute to the men and women who served and continue to serve in the armed forces around the world.

Here is a link to K’lee’s photo, now it’s time for you to show us what you’ve got for us…

 
*****

To get involved with the challenge, post a photo to your blog on Monday, add a pingback to this post (or to K’lee’s) and don’t forget to tag your post #CosPhoChal.

Alternatively, add a link to your blog in the comments of either mine or K’lee’s post and we’ll come and check out your entry.
Any and all effects, editing, Photoshop, Instagram, morphing, collages or whatever other post production techniques you fancy are permitted, (in fact, they’re actively encouraged!) so get creative and turn your photos into artworks for the Cosmic Photo Challenge.

K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge…

Hello again, I hope you all had an enjoyable and relaxing weekend, filled with plenty of inspiration for the Cosmic Photo Challenge that I set you on Friday.

The prompt was Street life, which I hope prodded you in the direction of trying out some candid street photography, or at least capturing some creative urban images that evoke the eclectic and vibrant life on the streets of our towns and cities.

I was fortunate, in that Saturday was carnival day in Barnstaple (note for American readers; a “carnival” in England is a parade, with floats, marching bands, costumes etc, sometimes by torchlight in the evening, not just a fairground, although the two generally do go together) and Audrey was intent on taking part in the kids’ procession early in the afternoon. So we headed into town in the morning to find a costume for her, eventually finding a very appropriate monkey outfit for her at the very last shop we tried.

Ulterior motive established for pointing a camera in various directions without drawing undue attention, I set out to immortalise some unsuspecting members of the public, along with capturing Audrey’s carnival debut, (there’s a video of the parade at the end of this post) so any of the following photos which don’t feature a monkey are of complete strangers. 

I’m mixing it up a bit, with some black and white, some in colour and a couple with high saturation and HDR effects, (in the candid shot of the couple, this also helps mask the blur of having to shoot surreptitiously whilst walking towards them) so let’s go to the carnival…

A strong wind and he’ll be gone.

Comparing costumes with the competition.

Already a bit the worse for wear.

Do the Funky Monkey!

Family of statues.

Could you tie me up, darling?

Even after the parade, Audrey upstaged the band…

…and you can see her monkeying around at the 50 second mark in this short clip of the parade returning to its starting point.

HERE is a link to K’lee’s photo for today, now that he’s caught up with my timezone, so let’s see whatcha got for us…

Cosmic Photo prompt…

Today’s prompt for Monday’s edition of K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge is chosen by me and I’ve decided on some urban inspiration this week.

It isn’t something I’ve done very often, so it’ll be an interesting challenge for me, too. Your prompt this week is; Street life.

Yep, street photography; it can be cool, candid and creative, so go out on the town and capture the public for Monday’s post.
