This week, the theme for our photography challenge was ‘Cherish’. These themes are tricky things…they can be obviously simple and singularly complex at the same time. It did get me to thinking along the lines of what I cherish and Family, friends, love, happiness, memories, mementoes etc, come instantly to mind. And although I have enough and more pictures of family, once again I wanted to tickle my ‘little grey cells and see if I couldn’t come up with a creative way of presenting abstract emotions.
This is what I thought of…although not unique, in that Google has similarly-styled pictures, I had a lot of fun getting the paraphernalia together, setting up my equipment and clicking away 🙂 I spent a happy hour climbing ladders and focusing and playing with the lighting. It’s been a long while since I had such a good time and I must say at the moment this challenge itself is something that I cherish because it has rekindled my motivation for photography, and introduced me to a group of talented, supportive fellow photography enthusiasts who are helping me learn the craft through their considerable skills.
