Life in Colour: Gold ( Sept/2021)

For this month’s Life in colour, Jude encourages us to look for Gold. Gold is the colour of wealth, of power, of gods. For her theme, I choose a few archived images.

Celebrating Chinese New Year in Bangkok. Gold color during the CNY  symbolizes a prosperity year:

The next two images were taken in the Palace of Thailand:

“Gold is the colour of wealth, of power, of gods” shows everywhere in the Palace.

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #165: Going Wide

This week, Patti invites us to go wide and ‘“broaden” your photographic horizons’.

Wide-angle lens is a great tool to capture a wide field of view like a mountain range.

Gen Canyon

A wide-angle lens also allows us to get closer to a large subject while keeping it in frame.

Technically, any lens that has a wider field of view than what the human eye sees.The image below is an example.

I read a sad news about the Glen Canyon on National Park Service: Due to significant wind damage and low water conditions, Dangling Rope Marina will not reopen in 2021.The damaged docks are not safe for visitors or employees.

Antelope canyons have narrow paths, created by water flowing through them for millions of years. To capture a wider area with light streaks, you absolutely need a wide angle lens. When we visited the Antelop Canyon, I carried my Canon10-18 mm lens:

The iPhone’s ultra-wide camera (i-11 and i-12) is designed for dramatic compositions enabling us to capture scenes that highlight a subject that appears larger than the background.

Often, I take my i-11 to capture wide field view when I’m taking a walk in our local park and gardens:

Many thank to Sofia for giving us a wonderful opportunity to share images of looking up/down. Through your beautiful photos, I’ve learned how fun it is to look up/down through my lens.

Patti encourages us to share wide-angle views of people, places, and objects. Be sure to visit Patti post to view her creative, inspiring wide-angle images. Hope you’ll join us.

Next Saturday, Ann-Christine will host LAPC, be sure to stop by her site.

Green represents growth and renewal, being the color of spring and rebirth.
