CHAT-SAYINGS-Weekly Comp 21-27 April 2014
« on: April 20, 2014, 11:04:34 AM »
CHAT THREAD

THE ENTRIES THREAD IS HERE

This week's theme is SAYINGS. The object is to post an image that illustrates a well know phrase, saying or epigram. If you are jinky you may want to achieve this through the use of some photographic pun, otherwise you might want to be more literal. Easy examples would be 'full of beans','having your cake and eating it', 'time flies', 'everything is coming up roses', that sort of thing.

There is no restriction on your imagination, no restriction on post production.

Go to it!


Pictures to be taken between 00.01am Monday 21st April 2014 to 23:59 Sunday 27th April 2014.
Pictures to be posted in the entries thread no later than 23.59pm Monday 28th April 2014.
Poll will be up Tuesday 29th April 2014.

This is something, my Dutch brain somehow has terrific difficulties with. But I'll see if I can come up with something.
Rather a busy week though, but then, I haven't had a quiet one for months.

If only it stopped raining!

Perhaps I'll try and get back into the swing if I can finally hold the camera steady now the pain has eased. Thinking cap on.

I know this is an 'oldie but goodie' subject, but it's one that I find is always a lot of fun. Or at least it ought to be. ;)

How about," Double Dutch", Reinardina. :legit:

How lovely to 'see' you again!

I did 'Double Dutch' for one of the PhotoRadar competitions once.  A bottle of Jenever, and a bottle of Bols, if I remember correctly.

My brain is a bit slow at the moment, and I simply cannot think beyond the shot I took then. Once I've got something in my head, it sluggishly sticks there, and I cannot think 'round' it.

Got a lot on at the moment, but trying to think about sayings and images, does take my mind of other things. If only I could forget those bottles! (They haven't been touched since, so that is not the cause!)

Pity I took this shot too early.

"Setting the world to rights" could have been my entry otherwise.

that's a great shot Reinardina, makes you wonder what they are discussing.
I have an idea for this one, just need all the 'elements' to behave

trouble is, we will all be trying to remember the sayings and try to get in before someone posts 'our chosen' saying :-)
1 body, 1 lens, 1 flash gun, 1 tripod, 1 cable release & 1 filter. Keeping it simple!
(I lied, just got a second lens!)

There are so many sayings, it would be pure coincidence if two (or more) people stumbled on the same one.
If that were to happen though, it would be interesting to see the different interpretations.

Does it have to be cheesy? I'll have to do a rethink.

It can be cheesy, funny, serious or just about anything else. :)
