Weekly Photo Challenge: Beyond

Beyond. In Morocco, I snapped this photo of a tower. Though I focused my camera on the tower, it wouldn’t have been half as interesting without all of the houses, roofs, textures, colors, and action happening beyond the tower. Hopefully your eye was drawn to the rest of the picture as I hoped it would be. 

Do you have a photo which invites the viewer to look beyond? Are there hidden depths in the background? Is the focal point just a framing for the rest of the picture? If it’s not clear why we should look beyond, tell us! Lead us through the story in your photo by Sara Rosso on January 18, 2013

Weekly Photo Challenge: Illumination

Illumination. Recently, I’ve been inspired by all types of lights, from the tiny white twinkles draped over trees during the holidays to the spectacle of fireworks in the night sky on New Year’s Eve. But sometimes I stumble upon stunning displays of light in the most unexpected places, like this grid of colorful bulbs underneath Southwark Bridge in London, England

Lights are functional — everyday objects in our rooms and on our streets. Yet lights can be powerful symbols: signs of life, curiosity, and discovery. We’re interested in seeing what you come up with for illumination — particularly your creative interpretations and more abstract approaches by Cheri Lucas
