AP Monthly Competition – December 2013

This month’s theme is ‘Winter Wonderland” and how to interpret this.

Since I’m going to be far too busy this month to work on any new images I’ve trawled through the archive to see what I had available. Not much it seems but here they are

The image I’ve decided on for the competition is the one of black and white icicles.

AP Monthly Competition – November 2013

The theme for this month’s competition is ‘Wild World / Animals and Insects’, I think I’ve got a few strong images for this without having to take any more images.

I’m not sure which one to use but I think I’m leaning toward the Curlew, but I have a while to think about it.

AP Monthly Competition – October 2013

The theme this month was ‘The Old and the New’ and since it has been a busy month there are only two possibilities and both are from the archive.

I’m going to go with the architectural shot as there is more of a contrast between the new sculpture and the old bridge in the background.

AP Monthly Competition – September 2013

This months competition is ‘Reach for the Skies’

The sky is big. Your imagination is bigger. Skies and skylines are the gifts that keep on giving. You have many options here. Angle your camera upwards, create a pan-stitch, look out over the city skyline from the tallest building you can get legal access to or fill the frame with the bruised winter clouds – just as long as the sky is involved in some way.

I’ve quite a few from the archive and some newer ones, so here we go. Still not made my mind up though I’m leaning towards one of the first three, all from Newcastle.

AP Monthly Competition – August 2013

Human Wildlife

The human animal – it’s a funny looking thing isn’t it? Walking around on its hind legs and pressing calculators and punching vending machines with its weird fleshy claws. What a perfect opportunity to track down and document this most mysterious of creatures at work or on the street.

Again I was hoping to get time to make a new image for this months competition but just didn’t make any to the theme, os I had to rely on archive images.

I chose to use the image from Grainger Market, there is a lot of movement going on with the stillness of the central character. The other thing that pulls the eye in is the receding perspective down the hallway of the market.
