I was so happy to finally have some colours around this autumn – but now, as usual in November, they are already gone with the wind. For Jude’s black and grey...I have chosen all my images from November blog posts or November months since 2011. Honestly, a month I could easily jump in the calendar…but thanks to Jude, it will be interesting to see what shows up in images. Smog in China is the most grey of all in my gallery, the others are OK for a November.
I give you a Gaudi lamp, a play with light, midnight sun, Autumn gold, the plate at the cinema chair in NZ where The Lord of the Ring first was played, a golden frog – and finally the tree we in Sweden call Golden Rain. The opener is a golden saxifrage.
This week, Patti is going wide – and so are we! ”What’s a wide angle lens? It’s any lens that is below 35 mm on a crop-sensor camera or 50 mm on a full frame. The wide-angle view is perfect for capturing a broad vista like a landscape, seascape, or cityscape.”
In the opener, I had to use a wide angle in order to show as much as possible of the paper cutting – but I still did not manage to get the whole width, 5 meters, in the same picture.
My first example is of an old ”light house” in Skagen, on the east coast of Denmark. Ca 1625 ”vippfyren” was invented by the Dane Jens Pedersen Grove of Elsinor. Vippfyr could be translated as ”tilt light house”, and worked via a lever lifting a metal basket with an open fire. The first of these innovations were set in Skagen, Anholt and Kolabacken, Falsterbo, Sweden.
I used a wide angle here to show the sense of a golden ”sea” in front, and the light house facing the open, blue sea.
Another wide angle – this time the necessity was…to catch the two giant platforms in the same picture.
For this week’s LAPC #165, we invite you to go wide and we’re looking forward to seeing your wide-angle views of people, places, and objects taken with your camera or smartphone.
Last week, Sofia’s Up/Down challenge gave us a multitude of beautiful images captured while looking up and down. A special thanks to Sofia for her creative and inspiring theme and for hosting the challenge!
Next week, I, Leya, will be your host for the challenge. Until then, please stay calm, kind and well.
