A Challenge


            Do you see Felix?

In my post Seeing Beyond earlier this week I made a point of training our eyes to see beyond the obvious. In a way to unlearn the usual way of perceiving the world around us. If we do so a completely new world will open up for us – and when talking about photography, a completely new and exciting array of image will come out of it as a result.

If you are up for it, I would like to challenge you. Go out there and photograph and create photos where the subject is not what is seems to be. Make a photo where the viewer will see something different and surprising, where a rock has turned into an animal, where the fur of a cat has turned into a forest, where spilled milk looks like a river running through a landscape, or… The point is to surprise and make us see beyond the obvious.

If you are up for the challenge, and whenever you have a photograph with a different perspective on the world, please post a link to the photo beneath. After a couple of weeks, I will compile the results and showcase the photos in a post here on this blog.

Are you ready to give it a try?

      1. Ecco la foto, è molto strana e l’avevo in mente da un po’ di tempo, perché la vedevo proprio così. Ma credo che difficilmente ti piacerà. 😦
        L’ho chiamata.. “L’antro di un monte”

        1. You will be surprised about what I like. 🙂 It’s quite abstract, but it does give me an idea of a mountain lair. Thank you for the first contribution to this challenge, Patrizia.

  1. I don’t know who Felix is, but I do see Batman! I think I’ll give it a whirl. I can’t guarantee I’ll find something, but the looking is part of the fun.

  2. I’m not a very talented photographer, but your insight into seeing the world in different ways has really inspired me in my writing. Finding new ways to approach and rethink a subject is the best part of art!

  3. Oh meant to say I saw another one today but haven’t downloaded it yet, will pop it on for good measure.
