ENTRIES weekly competition 24 January-1 February 2015.

Incongruous.

Something that does not seem to be in the right place, somehow. Something that stands out. In all ways you can think of: from the medieval inn, surrounded by sixties office blocks, the differently coloured flower in a bouquet, the car on the beach  engulfed by the incoming tide, the cat among the pigeons ... You get my drift. I hope.

It has been done before (the 'Odd one Out'), but I hope to get some really different photographs, not the 'usual' brown egg between the whites, or the fork surrounded by spoons. My earlier example of the differently coloured flower was possibly not ideal. The drowning car is more the sort of image I hope for. But it is up to you.

It may exist somewhere, you may know just the sort of thing in your neighbourhood, you may come across it by accident, or you can create it. A 'set up' composition on your kitchen table, or your studio. A digitally created image using the copy and paste possibilities; any way you can think of.
If it is going to be digitally created, all elements of the image must be photographed within the time limits of the competition.

It does not have to be a 'natural' image: an 'elephant in a porcelain store' kind of thing would be lovely!

I hope we will end up with a good range of beautiful, weird and/or wacky photographs. Surrealism, conceptual photography, or an illustration of the incongruous things that are around us, if we can but 'see' them.

Pictures to be taken between now (Saturday 24th January 2015) and Sun 1st February 2015.
