      • Oh yes, it’s a bit tricky. But I like the way y’all understand that perspective is not a given in photography – not even in this medium.


    • Tobias, I haven’t looked at his work since you first mentioned him. I am happy you like my response. The anti-perspective one is a shot of my lamp reflected with a bit of editing. You have really given me food for thought here. I have to say that yours is the most original challenge. I hope you have more ideas for us, and that maybe you’d like to host one challenge in colour some time in the second half of the year? Please, let me know.


      • In Warsaw. Looking out through dense foliage to the multimedia fountain, and up to old buildings. Slept around the clock, and jet lag is held at bay. J’s cooking lunch, and I’m yet to see family who are away for the mayday weekend. About to begin blogging at Hope you feel as good and as satisfied.


        • πŸ™‚ Glad to hear you are doing fine Meg. I am busy with housework, and getting ready for my trip to Portugal.

    • This is my favourite guest challenge so far. It has made me think more than others, and I am very grateful to have met Tobias. Today I received another mail with a guest challenge contribution so I will have to publish three guest challenges this month, which is funny cause I will be away 8 days too. Things are very busy here; it starts to look like work.

    • Thanks Debbie πŸ™‚ The first ball is a representation of Saturn. Some day I should take photos of all the “planets” that are laid in Zagreb.

  4. Interesting. A whole new concept. I’ll have to reread his post and see if it makes more sense to me now than it did earlier. Great pictures πŸ™‚


    • That ball is actually Saturn – this time it wasn’t me who named it. In my town there is entire solar system with representative planets in scale and positions to imitate actual planets. Too bad there are always crowds around the sun so I haven’t been able to capture it, but some day I’ll do my best to track down all planets around the city, and to write a post about them πŸ™‚ How does that sound?


  5. Definitely a post to get one thinking here early in the morning Paula. I may need some more coffee. πŸ™‚ I am especially fond of the first photo and read your explanation of it being Saturn. Should we get to Croatia again Zagreb must be on the list to visit!

  7. How could I possibly not like your entry? I truly admire your ability to “see” with the third eye, depicting complexity with utmost sophistication and presenting them in simple images, full of beauty.
    PS. I should have thought a little harder for my entry…


    • You are kind, Lucile. Tobias’s challenge was a real challenge for me. It’s the first time that I tried to produce something with no perspective πŸ™‚ Would you be interested in hosting a B&W photo challenge (Sunday) in August or some other month in the second half of the year?


      • You did very well despite the challenging time.
        Wow, I’m humbled by your invitation.
        You have such high quality people and professionals, as guest posts. I’m just an amateur that love portraits and street photography that tell stories.
        If you want to go out of the box, I’d be honored to do so. We can talk about that after your vacations.
        Thank you.


        • Of course I want to go out of the box, and I respect and admire your work and most importantly, I think that you can offer a lot to the audience here. As for other guest bloggers here: they are an eclectic mix – some of them are not even amateur photographers – just happy snappers which you will see :D. Now, I hope you won’t mind being in this mixed (up) company. And thank you, Lucile. P.S. I had a lot of time to prepare for the perspective/anti-perspective challenge. On this link I publish all themes well in advance so that everybody interested can prepare for it. πŸ™‚


          • Thanks again for the trust. Your words mean a lot.
            I’m super happy to be part of it.
            I read the themes there. I see there is an opening for BW in August.
            I could take it.
            Then I should choose a theme from the list above it, right?


            • August would be great, Lucile. The themes that I put as suggestions is what I am having in mind for the rest of the year. As for guest challenges – guests are invited to come up with their own theme πŸ™‚ It’s all up to you, Lucile- the number of photos, will it be with text or not, you are absolutely free πŸ™‚


    • Thanks a lot, Colline. We have something very special in Zagreb. A group of artists or scientists have installed the entire solar system with all planets made to scale and distances from one another. I will track all the “planets” down and make a post about it.


      • I had to. You’ll be gone before I know it πŸ™‚ And I always like to know what I’ve missed on yours, Paula.


          • Way too much food and alcohol, but I should be used after just being in Poland πŸ™‚ I was up at 5 this morning so lots of time to get my six words done and to zumba.


              • The hour time difference disturbs my body clock. I’m an early riser anyway. I hate the curtains drawn and when the sun peeps in… the day starts πŸ™‚ (my husband hates them open, but can manage to sleep irrespective)
