The Monsieur Rose at the Bon Marché
…..by artist Philippe Katherine
On a recent trip to the Bon Marché in Paris we were delighted to come across a larger than life art exhibit of large pink characters suspended high above the atrium or hanging onto the railings or standing on the floor waiting for shoppers to pose for photos.
Inside the store there was also a special gallery set aside for more of Philippe’s work.
Last Photo on the Card in May
….thanks to Bush Boy for hosting this challenge https://bushboy.blog/2021/06/01/last-on-the-card-may-2021/
My Panasonic Lumix camera has been giving me some issues as of late so my brother-in-law suggested that I take some photos and see if the problem is on the display screen or on the lens. If it’s on the display screen the photos should come out okay. Here are the last photos on the card.
These were taken in my studio. The clay mask is a project that I worked on in my first ever pottery class.
Thursday Trios – Different Perspectives
….welcome to Thursday Trios #15
My submissions this week involve looking into the distance (yes there are three windmills), a black and white photo taken from behind and a coloured close-up of three dolls.
If you’d like to join Thursday Trios, simply find photos with people or objects grouped in threes and copy the link and paste it into your blog. I will comment on your contribution when I see the ping back. Enjoy!
Life in Colour – Brown
….thanks to Jude of Travel Words for hosting Life in Colour https://traveltalk.me.uk/2021/01/31/life-in-colour-5/
The colour for this month is brown. Brown is not the first colour that comes to mind for me but in my art I am appreciating this neutral colour more and more. In the family of browns one can find colours such as burnt sienna, raw sienna, burnt umber, chocolate brown, tan, beige, taupe, chestnut, russet, desert sand and beaver. Many of these browns are easily found in nature.

Lines in Squares Coming to an End
….thanks to Becky B for hosting October Squares.
It’s been fun just as I imagine this piece of climbing apparatus is fun for children.
The Last One
….its March 31st and March Squares has come to an end
Thanks to Becky B for hosting this fun challenge. Finding all things spiky has certainly been fun and challenging. Can’t wait for the next theme in June.
A Photo a Week Challenge – Depth of Field
…thanks to Nancy Merrill for hosting the Photo a Week Challenge
Nancy describes depth of field like this:
Depth of field in photography (and light in general) is how narrow a strip of what you are looking at is in focus. In photography, the depth of field is controlled by two things: your f-stop (aperture) and the length of your lens (mm). To narrow your depth of field using aperture, use a smaller f-stop number. This will open your shutter wider and let more light in.
So if you want to shoot something up-close and personal with great bokeh (blurring) in the background, use a smaller f-stop and a longer lens.
Most of my photography is hit and miss, especially with my Panasonic Lumix camera. When I use the iPhone I’ve figured out how to get bokeh or blurring when I want it. The first two shots were with my Panasonic.
Mundane Monday – #149 Words
…..thanks to Trablogger for hosting Mundane Monday
This week’s challenge to go close with a shallow depth of field using words as our subject. I couldn’t figure out which one I liked best so I’ve submitted a few of them. Which is your favourite?
