This week Jude at Travel Words truly set us a photo challenge:
“find an object where its outline is more dominant than its three dimensional qualities, you need to approach your photograph with an eye for shape rather than form.”
She also provided a very striking photo for guidance. I then returned to the words, thought I understood them, but as I looked through my own photos began to wonder if I actually did. So after a backtrack to Travel Words to see how others had responded, these are the photos I came up with. The header tulips are anyway worth including simply for their ‘look-at-me’ factor. Also if you’ve forgotten to plant your tulip bulbs (in the UK anyway), there’s still time to do it in December.
The next photos are all from Kalamata: remembrance of sojourns past and other Greek reflections across the Gulf of Messenia.

Love this grasses, Tish
I took lots of photos of them too 🙂
Will we see more?
Now there’s a thought, Sue. I fell in love with phragmites grass in Kalamata. Silly not to show off its portraits now and then.
Well this week is specifically about shapes, but the whole month is looking at shape and form so any subject which has been considered from that aspect is fine. Shape is more difficult to capture I think, because it’s not usually what attracts us to a subject, the exception being silhouettes. I rather like your cricket for its unique shape.
I’m rather inclined to think the cricket isn’t actually real!
Great challenge there…good title, nice buffet of choices too! That green insect is my favorite.
He’s a very appealing bug, I do agree.
I especially like the leaves and the hopper bug. Very nice. photos.
Beautifully captured. 🙂
Thank you, Celestine. I hope you and yours are well.
This is a wonderfully varied gallery Tish. I especially like the green bug and the final shot.
I don’t care if they meet Jude’s criteria or not, the photos are marvelous. So there! 🙂
What a good chum you are, Janet 🙂
Thank you 🙂
