The last ever weekly photo challenge is titled ‘All Time Favourites’ – give or take ‘u’. It’s hard to mark the passing of this much loved event appropriately. I’m starting off by sharing a few favourite shots I’ve been saving until the right prompt came around. I’m pretty sure these would never have seen the light of day now the challenge is ending so, while there’s still time, here goes!
Jane Brewster’s street art shows part of the New Orleans street it is on, if my memory is correct. I like the way life plays with art and the dark shadows echo the dark trunk of the painted tree in this image. It provokes lots of ideas, for example, my eye plays with the angles of the shadows and the perspective in the painting. It’s funny how life seems to be framing the painting and how life seems more abstract than art. In retrospect I could have used it for ‘Reflections’, although it would have been a fairly subtle connection.
Todd Saunder’s studio in Austin, Texas, ought to have been perfect for several challenges, ‘Retro’ or ‘Neon’ or ‘Light’, so I am surprised it’s one of the left overs. I have shared a few other shots taken there.
I remember seeing this in the window of an Apple store, taking the picture and gleefully filing it away in my mind under ‘Weekly Photo Challenge Possibilities’.
My most popular post (the most viewed, so you could say my readers’ all time favourite) is this one about the Hampton Court Flower Show garden:
My own favourite weekly photo challenge post has been this one, about Chihuly’s Garden and Glass in Seattle:
Regular readers might be expecting yet another favourite rose shot. This one of Rosa ‘Golden Celebration’ is nice, but my favourite of all has still to be taken! I’ll keep trying.
Bye, Weekly Photo Challenge! Thanks for the memories!
