A Photo Challenge: Weight(less)

This week’s challenge response is perhaps a little less creative than it could be. I had many ideas for this one, but I’ve spent most of my time at the beach! This morning I decided to take along my underwater camera, and shot a whole bunch of hilarious, and embarrassing, photos of myself underwater.

The ocean has always been a place where I can retreat from the world, and float silently on the clear, blue water or dive down into the turquoise depths to explore the many reefs in my area. Today I went further south than I would normally to avoid the raucous crowds of people seeking to escape the heat. Apart from a young boy who kayaked down the coast, I had the stretch of beach all to myself.

Floating weightless in the water. This is, when I think about it, probably the best response to The Daily Post’s challenge, even if on a technical and compositional level this isn’t a strong photo.

A Photo Challenge: Circle

In an attempt to engage more with my photography, and this blog, I decided I’d start making an effort to participate in photo challenges. I’ve begun with The Daily Post’s Circle challenge. It was a spur of the moment decision, and I decided just to roll with it then and there. There were a few things I could have gone with, but I thought this would be kind of funky.

I didn’t really think about the process while I was doing it, and just went with what felt interesting. I quite like the result 🙂
