Frequent readers of this blog know that, once in a while, I like to participate in photo challenges on Word Press, albeit less frequently lately due to the discontinuation of the WPC from “There Daily Post”. And typically I try to enter a street style photograph into the challenge, that, depending on the prompt, is sometimes more and sometimes less difficult. When I saw the first post about Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge titled “In the Distance” , I immediately had one of my images in mind (many times the library catalogue in my mind works much better than the real one in Lightroom 😉 ) .
There are hardly more distant places than the surface of the moon. But taking advantage of our reflections in the framed, huge wall photograph of the lunar landscape in the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, The Signifiant Other and myself managed to warp us directly into Space 😉
And a second image I chip in is the one from the (for me still totally amazing) Yoga lady doing a headstand on her stand-up board on Lake Crescent on the Olympic peninsula.
If you want to go out shooting on the weekend and are still looking for tips and inspirations around photography, check out my free Learning Center.
Wish you all a great start into the weekend!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Temporary
Wonderful photos for this week’s challenge. 😀
This was a great take on the challenge Marcus! Nothing quite like the distance of the moon! 😉 I’m impressed by the yoga on the paddleboard as well! I think I attempted a downward dog on mine…once!
Did you go swimming after the attempt 😉 ?? Thanks for commenting!
Sure did! lol.
Perfect timing as always.
The moon picture is briljant Marcus!
Thanks, Jos, so much appreciated! Marcus
My brain is also better at finding images sometimes than Lightroom is, Marcus — but what a couple of gems you’ve found to show us here! The yoga queen is especially breathtaking. What balance!
Thanks, Heide, as always much appreciated! her balance was indeed unbelievable. I couldn’t do it on terra firma if my life depended on it 😉
Wonderful entry. Your last photo is beautiful. 😀
Thank you so much, Cee, this coming from you means so much! Marcus
I love the moon shot as the response to distance!
Thanks, David, so much appreciated!
Love the yoga queen..
Thanks, Lisa, really appreciate your comment! Marcus
