Wells next the Sea

England, Wells next the Sea – September 2021

This week Lens Artists Photography Challenge #191 is ‘Curves’.  A little village in Norfolk, Wells next the Sea. From the dock the view on the low tide coastline was amazing: boats, gulls, water, sun and clouds. It felt like a photographer heaven where there is too much to shoot in a short time

Systematic

The Netherlands, Scheveningen – July 2004

This week lens artists photo challenge is ‘that special place’. The beach is a place to relax, let go and create space and a fresh head. And you can see more than water and beach at times. This one is also an entry for Paula’s pick a word competition on ‘Lost in Translatation’. It looks like the surfers are in chaos, but actually they use the water and wind systematic.

Wind Breaker

The Netherlands, Scheveningen – July 2004

This week lens artists photo challenge is ‘that special place’. The beach is a place to relax, let go and create space and a fresh head. And you can see more than water and beach at times. This one is also an entry for Paula’s pick a word competition on ‘Lost in Translatation’. Not completely straight, but straight.

Murphy’s Law

England, Brancaster – September 2021

This weeks challenge #186 is ‘Low Light’. Meet Murphy, the cutest dog ever. Even if the original is not that well, software helps us to make it look good and show his cheeky eyes.

Wall

Greece, Lesbos – July 2007

The weekly LAPC (Lens Artists Photo Challenge) #183 is ‘memorable events’. One of the ‘themes’ I always look for is ‘windows’; all kinds of windows, showing different styles of houses, culture and local weather.

Achilles and the tortoise

Greece, Lesbos – July 2007

The weekly LAPC (Lens Artists Photo Challenge) #182 is ‘interesting objects’. Zeno of Elea is famous for a set of paradoxes. One of them is the paradox of Achilles and the tortoise.

In the paradox of Achilles and the tortoise, Achilles is in a footrace with the tortoise. Achilles allows the tortoise a head start of 100 meters, for example. Suppose that each racer starts running at some constant speed, one faster than the other. After some finite time, Achilles will have run 100 meters, bringing him to the tortoise’s starting point. During this time, the tortoise has run a much shorter distance, say 2 meters. It will then take Achilles some further time to run that distance, by which time the tortoise will have advanced farther; and then more time still to reach this third point, while the tortoise moves ahead. Thus, whenever Achilles arrives somewhere the tortoise has been, he still has some distance to go before he can even reach the tortoise.
