Symbolism – Destroy, Create, Repeat…

2016 – Project 52 / 52Frames / A Picture a Week Challenge

Week #14 – Negative Space

Week 14 - Negative Space: Nataraja, The Cosmic Dancer
Week 14 – Negative Space: Nataraja, The Cosmic Dancer

This was another week where I didn’t feel like going outside to do any photography but, yet again, I managed to get something to fit the theme.

A bit of background: Nataraja is Lord Shiva in his Cosmic Dancer form (Lord Shiva is one representation of the Holy Trinity of Hinduism – Shiva is the The Destroyer of the Trinity)

I used many ‘negatives’ in this image – quite a lot them are symbolic to me due to the problems on my University at present. However, this is not the space for politics but for my love of art (photography in particular) and the way it lets me express myself. So, my many takes on the ‘negative space’:

  • I used a dark idol as opposed to one in brass or silver or gold or any other metal..
  • This form of the idol is known as the Destroyer
  • Dance is being used to destroy a world filled with so many negative energies and make space for a new world to be created
  • There are places for light as well as darkness  in this image – however there is use of ‘neutral spaces’ to highlight both

This might not be the BEST representation of negative space in photography, but I used this week’s theme as a more symbolic means this week.

…2015 Project 52 completed!

2015 – Project 52 / 52Frames / A Picture a Week Challenge

I did complete the year – I did take at least a picture a week with some thought into it besides a simple ‘point and shoot’ image. I totally missed it with uploading the images and updating the blog. However, considering the year I’ve had, I think I still did pretty okay to  keep it going.

You can find the remaining eight images below. I’m just going to let those speak for themselves…

Weeks 42, 43, 44…

2015 – Project 52 / 52Frames / A Picture a Week Challenge

So, another couple weeks where I didn’t have the time to process my images and upload them to the 52 Frames group I’m with for this year. It’s hard being a student when you’re doing research and then writing papers. At the end of the day (week) all you want is to shut down the computer and spend some time in the real world. However, now that my semester has closed off (even though I have a lot of work to finish still) I’m going to update this space more often.

For now, here are the shots for the past seven weeks and the one for this week.

Week 42 – Future

I guess I could have thought of something more interesting but I didn’t even know the theme for this week…

Week 43 – Mashup

I guess the ‘mash-up’ is more in the name than the picture 🙂 But I tried…

Week 44 – Emotions

Week 44 - 2015 Project 52 - Happiness is...

I think I nailed this one 🙂 My friend is standing in a butterfly garden – his reaction is priceless as he’s normally more serious.
