Thursday’s Special: Calligraphy


Interesting theme this Thursday comes from my guest Meg Davis. Meg sees calligraphy in nature; I saw it in smoke signals; and you might see it elsewhere. Whatever your take on this theme, we look forward to your entries for this challenge.

  1. I’d do anything to prompt one of your exquisite flame photos. This one calligraphs beautifully the flame swirls: the fine lines of light and the creamy-brown eddies of density behind them. Thanks you for great pleasure.


    • You really know how to challenge us, Meg. This is smoke, fire would be even more difficult to photograph in this form ;). I wish I had a house or at least a garden or a porch or yard to make fire, but the only thing I can do are small flames in my tiny apartment.


  2. Very good. I can’t begin to imagine the time ad work in setting up the light and taking shot after shot of the smoke… πŸ™‚
    (And what did the smoke signals tell you?)

  10. Another lovely interpretation of another thought-provoking challenge. Love your smoke signals Paula πŸ™‚


  11. Absolutely amazing Paula! You really wow me every time I come here. Your images are so creative and of course always stunning! Great take. I love it! πŸ˜€


    • I’m very glad you saw this one, Uday. It is not easy to “write” with a single match πŸ˜‰


    • This means a lot Lisa. I like experimenting, and fire is something I like playing with (camera or no camera) πŸ™‚ Thank you.

        • πŸ˜€ where did you find this cool bonfire emoticon? this type of shots requires an assistant that blows a tripod and camera in burst mode.


          • πŸ˜€One of my favorites from my ‘nature’ emojis on the iPhone. Thank you very much for the tip. I have not tried to use a tripod, but I think that is up next. And the assistant is a great idea. I can have The Captain hold the match and then I won’t singe my hand πŸ˜‰


  12. Love the picture.
    Photographing smoke is always something of a challenge, because it is quite unpredictable – but if you get it right, you can see amazing forms in (or through) the smoke.


    • You are quite right Rabirius – it is one of the hardest photographic experiment I have undertaken so far. I am very glad you have checked it out. It is much appreciated.
