Take52 Challenge: Week 12 – Score

I was in Goa for the week this theme was announced and busy with things other than the Challenge. The most obvious interpretation of the word – “Sports” is NOT something I’m interested in at all; and so this was the toughest challenge for me so far. I struggled to come up with ideas and when I did, it was almost always too late and someone had posted before me! I took many pictures of my son playing cricket, but I couldn’t find any that hit the spot. I came back home to Bangalore 5 days later…with time running out and still stuck. In desperation I took a few shots of a Beer Mug with ‘scored’ glass but it didn’t feel right. Then while cleaning out my junk drawer I found my eye-test result and as it so often does – something clicked! And so I took this picture for the Challenge. It is my first monochrome submission and I’m quite happy with it πŸ™‚Β 


Of course in keeping with Murphy’s Law…once I was done with this picture, I began to get a few more ideas and on delving into my archives, I found a few pictures that seemed to fit the theme! What would you have shot for this theme? Do share!Β

  1. Cool pics Harsha, as always! I really like the idea of coming up with new meanings rather than the obvious ones! I would have shot some funny images with the theme of ‘settling the scores”! πŸ˜‰

  2. These challenges are tough! I don’t know WHAT i could have possibly come up with. Then again, my brain isn’t working much today πŸ˜› All your interpretations are really cool though!

    1. Thanks M πŸ˜€ You’d have thought of something! I cannot believe I’ve lasted this long – we’re into our 14th week! I’m just so grateful that this has got me taking pictures again and not only taking pictures but thinking about concepts and execution of shots…it’s been like a kick in the pants to ‘wake up’ and look and I mean really ‘Look’ at the world around. I needed that kick πŸ˜›

  3. Well, I think the photo you posted of Junior fits the bill perfectly. But I also like your selective coloring on the keyboard. And I’m amused you landed on your eye test score πŸ™‚ I think I’d have tried to find a score of music. Or, more likely, I would have gotten lazy and not participated…just like I’ve been doing in most of the Daily Post’s weekly photo challenges πŸ˜‰ Good on you for continuing to play along and find inspiration!

    1. That was my first thought too Heather! But it was also the first thought of many others who were quicker and had easy access to musical scores πŸ˜› We already had a few musical pictures by the time I had even begun to think about what I wanted to do πŸ˜›

      I’m wondering how long I’m going to hang in there…this week we have to do Peephole and my mind is a blank! But honestly, I enjoy the people I’ve met too…so talented and supportive! I’m learning a lot about photography and I think that’s what’s keeping me going πŸ™‚

      1. Maybe you should try not looking at others’ work until you’ve settled on an idea. Then, even if you end up in the same place, it was still your idea. And you can even compare notes on how similar your set-ups were πŸ™‚
        I am no good at the challenges. I have a hard enough time just doing my own thing πŸ˜‰ Keep learning, though. I’m having fun with your images!

      2. I try…but I’m always so impatient to see what everyone’s thinking πŸ˜› And sometimes I’ll see something and hear a click in my head πŸ˜‰
