Weeks 02-07 of 2016

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

Week #2 – Black & White

Week 02, 2016 - Black and White: Test your boundaries
Week 02, 2016 – Black and White: Test your boundaries

I love black and white but it doesn’t seem to love me in return. I always get these wonderful (at least to me) shots but never in the week that I want them to. For this week, I finally settled on this because I simply liked it best. It is not the strongest image ever but I still like all the symbolic elements.

Week #3 – Greetings from…

Week 03, 2016 - Greetings from...: Hyderabadi city life
Week 03, 2016 – Greetings from…: Hyderabadi city life

How do I effectively capture the story of ‘greetings from…’? I live in a busy city in India where there thousands of stories that could have been used through images of architecture, culture, landscapes and so forth. However, for this week I liked this image best – there’s clutter and colour, people, vehicles and food, religion and daily lives… Welcome to Hyderabad, Telangana, India

Week #4 – Shoot from below

Week 04, 2016 - Shoot from below: Tropical winter tales

From this crop you cant tell that I was looking up at least 70 degrees to get this image. I really did shoot from below – looking up! This tree is really a favourite of mine and I like that I was able to get some colours in this shot and not have it be a complete silhouette…

Week #5 – Shoot from above

Week 05, 2016 - Shoot from above: Abandoned

The next obvious challenge was to look down. I think the photograph effectively displayed it this week. I could have gone for a better shot but I wanted to use this one – nature taking back what was once her own. The way the bicycle is almost buried in the drying grass just appealed to me…

Week #6 – Levitation (NOT)

Week 06, 2016: Street Vending

So, I suck at levitation and for some reason  I wasn’t motivated to try this challenge this week. Instead I used an image of one of my favourite things in India – street food! 🙂

Week #7 – (Leading) Lines

Week 07, 2016 - Lines: Natural lines
Week 07, 2016 – Lines: Natural lines

When Mother Nature decides to help you with a challenge, even though you only have your phone on you, you accept it! The coloured versions were pretty but I like the moodiness of the black and white shot more.

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

Week 42 - 2015 Project 52 - Birthday

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.
