This week’s photo challenge is Threes.
The Challenger wants us to tell a story with a series of three pictures.
I don’t have a story to tell.
I am going to tell you three fairy tales:
The first tale in true colors. . . . . . . . . .
Then the fairy tale is repeated as if it were a painting . . . . .
Last of all, the fairy tale is retold in black and white, making it more surreal.
You may say that I am cheating as I am just showing the same image of Trakai castle in the Baltics over and over.
Please forgive this blogger, as he is running out of stories
This is the first week Lingering Visions is hosting the new Thursday Lingering Look at Windows: Week 1.
I have two pictures both taken in Latvia, a Baltic country, showing windows which I find interesting.
I like many of the details in the picture below: the flower-pot in the form of a pig, the yellow flowers, the color and texture of the timber frame and shutter, the black hinges, the contrast in colors etc.
On the other one, the focus is more on the wall than on the windows. Again, there are flowers below the window sill, the reflections from the window pane, the old windows. The paint on the wall below the window has cracked off showing a bad state of repair.
A window is defined as a framework of wood or metal that contains a glass window pane and is built into a wall or roof to admit light or air.
I like windows, not only for the light and the fresh air; gazing out the window often gives me the opportunity of day dreaming and deep thinking. . . . . . .
Where’s My Backpack travel theme this week is Glass
This photo is taken in Latvia, Baltic region. The picture shows on the left the glass maker and his undivided attention in the process of making glassware. The multi-color glassware, which are his products, are displayed on the right.
Not many of us would remember that glass, however, is actually neither a liquid—supercooled or otherwise—nor a solid. It is an amorphous solid—a state somewhere between those two states of matter.
The colored glassware in the picture reminds us how beautiful and useful glass can be.
Glass itself reminds us of the strength and fragility that exists in every one of us.
Solitary is the cat in the alley of Riga, Latvia. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .
