WP Photo Challenge: Cheeky

As we come to the end of Canada’s 150th I thought this photo from our Canada Day celebrations would be fun for this week’s challenge.

Show us something cheeky this week! Kids, animals, faces in inanimate objects, amusing signs, funny juxtapositions β€” go find a little irreverence in your world.

Last week I shared some black and white photos on my ‘journal blog’ / Instagram. I enjoyed experimenting with different angles and patterns.

For this photo, I started by looking to photograph the van’s headlights (inspired by my last week’s photo challenge entry). But the reflection of the tree is what ended up catching my imagination.


I thought it would be fun to experiment a bit more with my PhotoStudio app, using the Photo In Photo effect to highlight what I was originally trying to photograph. πŸ˜‰

We’ll get a-round to it!




Last spring while on a photo journey through the Niagara Parks, we stopped at the Floral Clock. There were so many photos to be found as we walked around the clock πŸ˜‰

This week, share your take on β€œrounded.” it’s a broad theme, so I look forward to your personal interpretations, whether you choose to focus on a curving street, limbs caught mid-way through a dance, a bowl of fruit (think of all the round shapes!), or any other object, landscape, or texture that fits within your definition of the theme. As always, less-literal takes are equally welcome.
