Lens-Artists Challenge # 88: CHAOS

[Categories: Photography, Photography 101 Forever
[Photos this week are hosted right here on WordPress.  Somewhere… ]
[A right-click on a photo ‘might’ give you the option to open in a separate tab or window.]

The Lens Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Ann-Christine.

Host A-C says: “Feel free to interpret Chaos any way you want…”

Tough one. I’m having trouble finding photos that I think reflect CHAOS.

Nature is not really chaotic, we just think she is.

A beaver’s home certainly looks like chaos. It works just fine for ‘The Beave’.

Flying fox bats look chaotic, or eerie, at least:

Art can look like chaos:

Unless you’re Claude Monet, perhaps:

A Garden in Vetheuil; 1881

‘Photo fails’ definitely look like chaos. Brief attempts at ‘stop motion’ photography, to get multiple motion images in a single photo, yielded this:

and this:

No dogs were injured in the process:

Can’t we all just get along? Dogs can:


Kudos to the tireless leaders of the weekly Lens-Artists challenge.

    Oh my gosh John, I loved this post! The dog snow sculptures are amazing (at least I think they’re snow sculptures, right?!) and I laughed out loud at your attempts during which no dogs were injured 🙂 Good for you for sharing those. Heaven knows we all have them!

    This had me laughing out loud, John! Much needed! Love all your woggies – and fun “stop motion” I too am glad no dogs were injured ;-D …Nature is well organized “chaos”, yes – and I think Monet knew that! I am totally in love with your take on ♥♥♥

    Love those fragmenting dog images, John. And the beaver ‘chaos’. The latter are being coopted here and there in the UK to assist in re-wilding projects and river system landscaping.

    Wow, very creative John. I really wish to visit Monet’s garden at Giverny.

    Wonderful post, John. It’s so true that nature seems chaotic to us…but it has its own logic. I love the dog statue.

    Hi John-
    Your dogs, frozen in snow and frozen in frame, are super fun takes on the chaos theme! I am here laughing along with the others who have commented before me.

    Also love the takes in photos and attitude about the beaver. Great that humans are making a slow but steady come-around on understandings why this species is an anti-chaos eco-champion.
