Thursday’s Special: Organised Noise

Tobias M. Shiel today’s guest and photo challenger at Lost in Translation invited us to apply the concept of organised noise to photography.

In his inspiring post, Tobias elaborates the idea and gives us some very useful pointers as to how to approach this theme.

Here is my response:

  1. I’m so glad you’re back. I was just beginning to feel anxious about you.

    This one is indeed a challenging challenge, and I haven’t got my head around it yet. I love your photo, complete with rough edges and spiderwebs, and a glimmer of understanding comes as I look at it.

    A strange synchronicity with this topic, or at least I tentatively think so. I’ve been listening to soundscapes: raindrops on telegraph wires, the sounds of an electric fence in Estonia and the songs of bridges. I’m not sure yet what I make of them either.


    • Thank you very much for this comment, Meg. I thought I had already replied to you, but Jo’s answer confused me. It’s always interesting to hear what you have to say.


  2. The responses to this will be interesting, Paula 🙂 I was just about to close my laptop when they popped up. Something to think about in the bath 🙂 Take care, hon.


  3. Coucou Paula, comment vas-tu ?
    Je trouve ton idée super pour cette photo, ça me fait penser aux petits abris “hôtels pour abeilles” qu’on entend bourdonner en été…
    Bisous !


    • Salut Julie 🙂 pas tres bien, mais je m’en vais a weekend demain. Tu pourras lire comme je suis ce samedi. Je suis contente q ma photo te plaise. Bisous 🙂

  4. Welcome back Paula – I hope the stress is diminishing!
    This is a fascinating challenge and I have a particular building in mind – off to edit….


    • Thanks Debbie. I will go away tomorrow morning cause I need a break. I’ll tell you where I go later – don’t want to jinx it and plus I will be back Sunday night. In my scheduled post for this Saturday I am explaining what this month has been like for me. I am not sure how I will walk or use my camera cause my physical state is so much worse than at the end of November. Thank you for coming to greet me darling.


  5. Good to see you back, interesting challenge, even thinking of putting in my own!
    Hope things are on the up for you healthwise and less workload…
    All the best,


    • 🙂 It is always nice to read you Ron. It has been a very difficult month for me and my health has paid the price. I wrote something about it for Saturday. Still I am taking a big chance by going away for a weekend tomorrow – I need a mental break too. Hopefully, I will start mending the upcoming month.


    • Thank you so much, Tobias, for everything. WordPress community should use more thinkers like you. I would like us to continue our cooperation cause nobody here made me think like you. I hope that at least a couple of other blogs find your challenges equally stimulating. If you have ideas for B&W some time during this year, and want to repeat this experience please let me know. For now I will let comments be published immidiately so that you can see people’s reactions and also I am going away tomorrow morning for a weekend, but there will be a post on Saturday (for those who are interested to know why I was absent). Again, I am so very thankful for your patience and your irreplaceable input here.


      • Thank you, Paula, you’re so kind! I very much enjoy doing this and joining the discussions your challenges entail. So I’ll be more than happy to come up with something for a b&w challenge. It is a great pleasure!

  7. I’m going away to think about this, Paula. Lovely to have you back. Your response to the challenge is also illuminating. Many thanks to you and Tobias.

    • My first thought when I saw your post was – Tish had done that before; it may be some kind of conspiracy with Tobias 😀 (kidding ;). I had his draft post for a long time and I had plenty of time to think it through, but you have only learned of it today and you nailed it. It is so much more than a “stab” 😀

  9. Lovely to have you back Paula I do hope your weekend break helps. What a very thought provoking challenge from Tobias this week. I’ve looked at the other contributions and yours to get some input. I like your interpretation, very organised and yet I can imagine noise of the rustle of dry bamboo. Now I must put my thinking cap on. I’ll be back later.
