No matter how long you’ve been blogging, there is always more to learn. As part of the Weekly Writing Challenges, once a month, we’ll highlight a feature in the WordPress.com Dashboard and challenge you to incorporate it into your blog. We want to help you take full advantage of all the tools available on WordPress.com to make your blog the best it can be — and to make your friends jealous of your web wizardry.
To participate, tag your posts with DPchallenge or leave a link to your post in the comments. Please be sure your post has been specifically written in response to this challenge; obvious attempts to link-bait will be deleted. We’ll keep an eye on the tag and highlight some of our favorites on Freshly Pressed each Friday.
Take one of your existing photos and rework it by either cropping it into an extreme close-up, flipping it around, or turning it on its side. Then, write a post about your (now) abstract photography skills. Need some ideas to get you started?
- Crop your photo so much so the original object is unrecognizable. Then, speculate on what this new object or thing could be. For example, in the photo above, is it a picture of an amusement park ride? A close-up of a vintage trailer? A really, really dirty mirror? Let your imagination guide you.
- Rotate one of your images like you might do when looking at an abstract painting. On which side does it look best? How does changing the rotation affect the composition?
- Flip your photo upside down and get literal. Tell us about a time when your life was turned around and everything seemed twisted.
With those instructions here I go.
It is all how you look at life to wonder if it is upside down or just an abstract thought. If you look at something long enough sometimes it might appear as normal. When in reality it might just be quite different. Perhaps first impressions are not always correct. What are your thoughts on this matter?
Is this really what you think it is or is it something totally different?
It has appeared in my blogs on several occasions before. Perhaps not quite this way or perhaps exactly like this. You tell me…lol
