Things going around in Toowoomba

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Circles and Curves

While I was visiting my daughter in Toowoomba I took lots of photos so I am ready for almost any topic for any photo challenge.

There were some flower displays in the churches in the city

Bridge – Pont Alexandre III, Paris

Debbie’s One Word Sunday: Bridge

The Pont Alexandre III is one of the most emblematic bridges in Paris because of its architecture and location. Pont Alexandre III connects les Invalides on the Left Bank to the Grand Palais and Petit Palais on the Right Bank. The single long, low arch of the bridge, with its Beaux Arts and Art Nouveau décor, exemplifies the Parisian Belle Époque (“Beautiful Era”) of 1871 to 1914

At its four extremities are huge 17 metre-high pylons crowned with gilt bronze sculptures of winged horses representing the Arts, Sciences, Commerce and Industry.

Going round the bend

The Weekly Prompts Weekend Challenge: The Bend

Which bend are you going to take?

May as well have a singalong as we go. Everyone should know this one

Travel Challenge day 2

I was nominated by my friend Judy Dykstra-Brown to post one favorite travel picture a day for ten days without explanation, then to nominate someone else to participate. That’s 10 days, 10 travel pictures, and 10 nominations. Let’s see if I can make it to the end of ten days, but for now I nominate Teresa
Post wherever you wish but link to me so I know you have. If you are not interested, that’s OK.

Time to focus

The Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #121: Focus on the Subject

Patti has given some tips so maybe I should see how I go using these ideas for inspiration

Using Leading Lines & Repeating Patterns – “The lines and patterns help draw us into the scene and guide our eyes towards the subject.”

Using Selective Focus – This technique helps the viewer focus on the subject

Using Colour – “In this case, the colors help draw our eyes to the main subject of the image.”

Using Contrast & Focusing on the Eyes – “Contrasts in color, patterns, textures, old and new, fast and slow (for example) can help guide our viewers to focus on the subject.”

Freezing the Action – “Our eyes are drawn to action and speed.”

Framing the Shot with Arches, Doorways, etc. – “A final technique to draw attention to our subject is to use doorways, arches, tunnels, and windows to create a frame around it”
