BBW 30-Day Photo Challenge – Day 10: Technology

12 Apr

I love technology, and I’m glad that the word for Day 10 in the Blessed Beyond Words 30-Day Photo Challenge was this topic!

My Technology Pic

I have gone with something very traditional with my shot for today – a simple photo of technology that I love – Bluetooth! One of my favourite things is to plug in my iPhone or my MacBook Air, Bluetooth it to use my stereo as speakers, and away I go with my favourite tunes! Pictured here is how I configure it with my iPhone.

Doing research and finding other technology pics led me into many worlds of what people have included under the heading ‘technology’. These included cameras, energy (think solar and wind), satellites, computers (with Apple being a favourite photo subject), transportation, and technology meeting nature. It’s really inspiring what people shoot.


Below are a series of technology photos taken by others. I’ve included links to these at the bottom of the post. You can view them individually by clicking on these links, or go to my Flickr Gallery on Technology to see them and others.

2009 Challenge – Day 46: Black & White Light Streaks

15 Feb

2009 Photo Challenge - Day 46: B&W Light Streaks (Crop 2)This is actually a crop of the original image. Actually, it’s a crop of a crop! I had taken another one of the Ho Chi Minh Municipal Theatre, but as is pointed out in the comments of that photo, it lacked balance, and the more I looked at it, the more I was unhappy with it.

This caused me to look at some of the other images that I took, and this one jumped out of me and caused me to crop it, as I am starting to realise a trick of black and white photography – it’s about the contrast between the light and the dark. That may be an obvious thing, you might think, however when you are looking down the lens at a coloured photo, you sometimes lose the sense of the shadows and contrast that can make a great black and white photo.

This is merely my opinion, based on what I like to see in black and white photos – the ones that draw my eye – but I think I’m going to work on this a little more in more of my black and white photos for this week. And it helps to take the photo in black and white, even though I know I’m losing some of the versatility of the image.

Empty inside the Clockwork Orange

Grungy, desolate feeling, yet somehow vibrant.  I’m not sure if that’s the word I want to describe this, but this picture draws me, for some reason.

Travelling, On Reflection

I like the technique used in this photo – it’s one that I try occasionally myself, but not with a lot of success. The framing works well.
