Lockdown Picture of the week Challenge: “Blues”

Once again this week I challenge a friend to a photo challenge. This week the theme was “Blues”.

This could have meant a lot of things and I thought about all sorts of ideas. I dismissed ideas of musical instruments and feeling down.

One of the things I noticed early on was that my shaving cream came with a blue lid and had a blue tint to it. I wondered if I could light it in a way to get some interest out of it.

Here is what I came up with…..

“The World is Blue”

This was a pretty basic set-up with the lid filled with cream and lit from underneath using a small continuous light (a LumeCube).

Here is also a variation that I shot. I like it a lot as it reminds me of some sort of dessert.

This is what the lid of shaving cream looked like after I left it for a few minutes.

That’s it for this week – next week the theme is “In my neighbourhood”.

Yosemite Park Photos

We went through the famous US park of Yosemite in CA a few days ago. Unfortunately, I have not had any time for the photo processing as yet, but here is a preview.
