Every week we select a new theme, and then go out and shoot that theme. This week the theme is Contradictions. As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.

What can you share to show us Contradictions?


Here are the rules:
1. Shots need to be taken between Monday Sunset and the following Monday by Sunset (Whenever that is for you ). Because this activity is supposed to encourage us to get out and shoot, please don't post old shots from your archives. Snapshots and art are equally welcome -- just get out & shoot, and then share!
2. Post your shots at any time during the week.
3. Post a maximum of two shots if you're uploading them to POTN (i.e., attaching them). You can post more than two if you're linking to shots that are not hosted by POTN (i.e. embedding them) but keep within POTN rules. Also keep within POTN rules about size. A copy of the size rules can be found here: IMAGE POSTING RULES
That's it! Have fun! As always be as imaginative/creative as you like when interpreting the theme, creativity is what we're looking for.
An index to previous weeks can be found here: POTN WORLDWIDE PHOTO WEEK INDEX

That's it!
Have fun!

These are hard drives in a storage unit, I'll leave you to ponder what the orange lights mean...

Is it a warning? Disks about to fail or already failed or not backed up in a long time?

That's a cool shot, Joeseph. When I saw it first, I thought they were bottles of wine! And then I read your description. And I agree with Rhody that the orange lights indicate failing drives. Although orange is our national colour. Maybe they're football fans!  :p (Although Dutch football hardly deserves support at the moment. Bah...)

Nice home storage, joeseph. :rolleyes:
That's a lot of stored images.. ... .

So I think perhaps the orange drives might be full or have a error
failure is not an option !!

Thanks, Jo!

I wanted to do a running tap with a flame instead of water. Took the shots but couldn't do the blend.
Then I wanted to do a bowl of soap bubbles and add little flames to it. Took the shots but couldn't do the blend.
Really, I know my way around Photoshop but those kinds of blends, nope, not a clue!

I'm just happy I finally thought of something that did work. And I didn't need any blends either. :-P

Turns out the guy who looks after the storage - is colourblind & can't tell orange from green anyway! lord knows how he got a job looking after things that needs functional eyesight.

Thank you very much, Kevin. :love:

I used my flash at the lowest power output here, so I think that's called fill flash? I'm very pleased to learn that I can take these kinds of dark shots with a flash too. I was worried about that, but needlessly so. And what I love about the flash is that white balance is always spot on!
