Lens-Artists Challenge #154 – One Photo Two Ways

[Categories: Photography, Photography 101 Forever]

Ever a stickler for details, here is one photo two ways:

Consider, if you will, an alternate reality, a parallel universe, a science fiction theme perhaps, where the main character, for whatever reason, or perhaps no reason at all, sees the world upside down, always swimming on a sea of blue, or clouds, or rain and snow falling up to the ground overhead.

Hmm. Never mind. I don’t think Tina meant that.

Per TINA: “This week, we’d like you to think about the various ways you create your images. Show us the same subject captured using multiple, different approaches.”

Ahh. Same subject, multiple approaches. I suppose my previous example still applies. Changing one’s perspective from time to time might be informative, to which I digress:

“I’ve looked at life from both sides now
From win and lose and still somehow
It’s life’s illusions I recall
I really don’t know life at all”
– from Both Sides Now, lyrics by Joni Mitchell, popularized by Joni, Judy Collins, and many others.

ILLUSIONS! ‘Yeahhh, that’s the ticket!’ (–Jon Lovitz as Tommy Flanagan, SNL.) Illusions R us. After all, I’m a picture taker, you folks are photographers, WE attempt to capture the vision of a moment.

Here is another ONE photo, TWO ways. Even white orchids are best with a hint of color, IMO.

Stay safe, stay well, stay wonderful.

  1. Cool ideas here and the first set of images has that flip you around vibe!
    And with the white orchid – I do like the color version but the first one with all that white has a softer and quieter feel and I think I like that one better –

  2. I had to smile when I saw your upside-down image and literal take on the challenge theme :lo: Great too to see a quote from the amazingly wonderful Joni! But on the subject of the orchid I have to say I prefer the almost ethereal delicacy of the B&W version 🙂

    1. Thank you Sarah. Joni is getting some press here recently with the 50th anniversary of the Blue album, but IMHO she has always been a unique and extremely talented artist.

      1. Good article. If I’ve played Blue once, I’ve played it a thousand times. It’s likely my most played album ever, with the possible exception of CS&N with CSN&Y-Deja Vu. I want Carry On and Everybody I Love You played at my wake, very LOUDLY.

  3. That was real funny 😃 I loved the flower as well. The use of black and white always provides an alternate perspective of a subject
