The Changing Seasons: December 2016

Here we are: the last Changing Seasons post this year. As you probably know, I’ve decided to run this challenge in 2017 as well, which means that you have 12 more months to go out there and shoot. This will be the third year running this challenge and the rules for 2017 will be the same as in 2016. Those of you who aren’t familiar with this challenge already, can read the introduction to 2016 if you like, but the rules are always listed at the end of my posts.

Magic Reflections in Marseille

It’s not magic – it’s only reflections, but reflections can be a lot of fun for a photographer.

I captured these when I visited Marseille a couple of weeks ago.

Photos from Belfast

There’s not much to say about these photos. I experimented with some hdr water photos, some random night shots and street art. They were all shot in, or on the way to, Belfast.

The Changing Seasons: September 2016

Gamlebyen Sport & Fritid

100% boredom as usual: Last month I had the privilege to exclaim “Summer vacation is over and it was freaking awesome!”. This month I can reveal that the autumn is here and that it has been extremely average. Absolutely nothing exciting has happened in the month that has passed. You can’t win every time.

Here’s this month’s «The Changing Seasons»:

What’s this «Changing Seasons» blogging challenge?

«The Changing Seasons 2016» is a blogging challenge with two versions: the original (V1) which is purely photographic and the new version (V2) where you can allow yourself to be more artistic and post a painting, a recipe, a digital manipulation, or simply just one photo that you think represents the month. Anyone with a blog can join this challenge and it’ll run throughout 2016. It doesn’t matter if you couldn’t join the first month(s), late-comers are welcomed. These are the rules, but they’re not written in stone – you can always improvise, mix & match to suit your own liking:

These are the rules for Version 1 (The Changing Seasons V1):

  • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons
  • Each month, post 5-20 photos in a gallery.
  • Don’t use photos from your archive. Only new shots.

These are the rules for Version 2 (The Changing Seasons V2):

    • Tag your posts with #MonthlyPhotoChallenge and #TheChangingSeasons
    • Each month, post one photo (recipe, painting, drawing, whatever) that represents your interpretation of the month.
    • Don’t use archive stuff. Only new material!

The Titanic Afterparty

A photo gallery from the Titanic International Tattoo Convention after-party that was held at Cabaret Supper Club in Belfast.

Once again thanks to Mr. Carson & his family for arranging the convention and thanks for inviting me to the after-party. Much obliged.

Surprise, surprise! I got this message from the WordPress team today:

WordPress Anniversary - 5 Years
Let me also add, for those of you who don’t know, that I’ve had my tagline: «Encyclopedia Miscellaneous – ‘quality’ blogging since August 2011», since September 2011.

Both this after party and my WP anniversary is  definitely a rare event, nothing you’ll see every day.
