Posted for Paula’s B&W Sunday.
WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge this week asks us to post something that’s unusual (in some way for you). If you’ve seen my previous post, you already know that I was in Belfast during the weekend to attend the 4th Titanic International Tattoo Convention.
Near the Wat Pho temple in Bangkok you can get some really good sticky rice. It’s a small, confined space – a tiny place where the only thing they serve is mango sticky rice.
It might look dangerous the way she’s chopping away at the mango, but the chef is in full control.
The Changing Seasons is here again. Like they say: “new year, new possibilities”, or perhaps you’re one of those people who don’t want to get out of your comfort zone? In that case: “New year, same, same”. Either way you’re welcome to join this challenge that will run throughout the year.
How you interpret “the changing seasons” is all up to you: a painting or perhaps a digital manipulation? One photo, a gallery with plenty of photos? Photos of the same place each month or different spots? A recipe (with an illustration photo that you’ve shot), your aging face, your declining health? Street, flash or portrait photography?
Be creative or don’t.
Mara Eastern said in a post on my other blog that she wanted to see some nude dudes. Well, tomorrow I’m shooting a friend (he won’t be nude – sorry Mara), so today I decided to clean the camera, test the flash, charge the batteries etc, etc. The photographer’s Mise en place. Which again led to this self-portrait.
Mise en place (French pronunciation: [mi zɑ̃ ˈplas]) is a French culinary phrase which means "putting in place" or "everything in its place." It refers to the set up required before cooking, and is often used in professional kitchens to refer to organizing and arranging the ingredients (e.g., cuts of meat, relishes, sauces, par-cooked items, spices, freshly chopped vegetables, and other components) that a cook will require for the menu items that are expected to be prepared during a shift. - Wikipedia
My entry for this weeks photo challenge: Anticipation
Edit: Here’s a lullaby to go with it.
I’ll admit that this portrait is shot using artificial light. I might also have altered the image slightly using software. If you ever come across a woman looking like this, then quickly head for a new horizon..

It is more about the message of a photo than about what is in the photo. Some artists intend to be clear in their messages, in illustration of their ideas, and some do not care if they will be understood or misinterpreted. – Paula

I usually forget to join Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness posts, but not this time!
This skull is filled with vodka and it’s pretty cool.

A little teaser of what’s to come in this blog.
This is Lysebotn on the West coast of Norway.

On Friday I was thinking that I’d go out and take some new landscape photos this weekend, but the weekend has been grey, wet and cold, so an executive decision was made: stay at home. Binge watching won this round…
I didn’t want to post a standard landscape photo for WordPress’ Weekly Photo Challenge this week, so I chose this photo of the National Theatre building in Oslo. “Kill them all” was a play at the theatre.
The National Theatre in Oslo (Norwegian: Nationaltheatret) is one of Norway’s largest and most prominent venues for performance of dramatic arts. – Wikipedia
My entry for:
Ref: «self-portrait in tits» that I posted the other day.
“Human relationships didn’t work anyhow. Only the first two weeks had any zing, then the participants lost their interest. Masks dropped away and real people began to appear: cranks, imbeciles, the demented, the vengeful, sadists, killers. Modern society had created its own kind and they feasted on each other. It was a duel to the death–in a cesspool.”
― Charles Bukowski, Women
There’s some nudity in this post. I know that nudity bothers some people because of their superstitions or work environment. In that case I suggest that you read a garden blog, a cat-blog or something else instead. (Fair warning given).
A fun photo challenge from WordPress this week with the theme “Creepy“.
P.S. I’ve opened an instaspam account. Most of the likes I’ve gotten so far has been from spammers (except from some from real life friends & some other bloggers), so instaspam seems like a more appropriate name than instagram. Anyway, if you also have an instaspam account, you can add me: instagram.com/cardinalguzman
My profile is open and public now, but if I continue to experience spam, I’ll set it to private.
P.P.S. I’ll probably be posting more stuff for the challenge this week.

A follow-up post from yesterday. This is brand new, shot today by Gil Shachar.
Enjoy these double exposures plus some street photography. I hope you’ve had a great weekend. It’s almost finished now, but it will return in less than a week.
