Tower

The Netherlands, Nunspeet – August 2020

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #114 is ‘Negative Space’.

The term ‘negative space’ to me is confusion: technically it is the space around the main subject of a photo. It means ‘negative’ as opposed to ‘positive’ attention for the main subject. The word ‘negative’ as a noun brings back good old memories. Being older I actually worked and work with negatives (for the millennials: it has to do with film, the light sensitive stuff we used to put in a camera to get a photo on (in negative) that later could be printed (in positive).

So ‘negative space’ is about the focus a viewer of a photo is offered in a photo. If there is a lot to see around the subject, than that distracts from that subject. In other words: it is a creative tool a photographer can use.

Labor of love

The Netherlands, Nunspeet – August 2020

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #113 is ‘A labor of love’.

The theme is meant to honor Labor Day in the United States of America. But I decided to give my own twist to the theme, and add parenthood to the label ‘labor’.

Corridor

The Netherlands, Nunspeet – August 2020

The theme for Lens-artists Weekly Photo Challenge #112 is ‘Pick a Word… ’.

Paula of Lost in Translation has been hosting a monthly challenge on her site: pick a word and post a photo that describes or portrays or symbolizes or associates with that word or words. Since Paula was away for a while, AC used this theme to bring it back to life. And what happens? Paula announced she will restart hosting the challenge. It can not be a coincidence.

This photo is a corridor of a beautiful, comfortable and welcoming hotel in Nunspeet in The Netherlands, Dorpsherberg De Roskam. It is a wonderful place to explore De Veluwe by foot or (electric) bicycle. We had a short stay over to pick up old youth memories and enjoy the flowering heather. It is a busy but not too crowded place, not exuberant but functional and practical. With a staff that is friendly, welcoming and always near when needed. If you are able to visit, I recommend you do so. This small business initiative deserves to grow.
