LAPC – On The Edge

LAPC – On The Edge

In this week’s Lens-Artists, Patti asks us to focus on photos that emphasize “On the Edge.” What a challenge! There are certainly many interpretations. You can sit on an edge, but it can also be a feeling of being on the edge. I start simply with an insect sitting on the edge of a wooden chair.

When I saw this written in large letters on a wall in a backstreet in Sliema, Malta, it felt as if she must have been on the edge between hope and despair. I wonder what the answer was, if he did answer.

An old house, on the edge of collapse, located right on the edge of the town of Kakopetria in Cyprus.

Having fun on the edge of a small inflatable dinghy.

Sea lions are lying on the edge next to each other in Morro Bay, California.

A little girl dips her toes in the water on the edge of the Great Sea. Perhaps it’s too chilly to swim.

We’ve all been on the edge of over-enthusiasm to capture the best shot ever.
No matter how we look or how we go about it ))

Lens-Artists Challenge #269 – One the Edge

Nine pictures is perhaps too many pictures.
If you’ve made it this far, I’d love it if you left a comment and picked a favorite. Thanks! :))

    Great interpretations of the theme (and no, nine isn’t too many – or at least, I hope not, since I regularly post twelve or more!) As to favourites, the two of the fly are stunning macros, and my other favourite is the one of the little girl dipping her toe in the water 😀

    These captures do represent the theme very well. I agree with Toonsarah, 9 isn’t too many as each one emphasises the theme.

    Wonderful pictures Anita! My favorite is the almost collapsed house, and if Marco has a soul he now has married the person who wrote on the wall. 🙂

    Helt otroligt att du hittade så mycket “på kanten”! Jag tycker verkligen om alla bilder. Svårt att välja en favorit. Kanske det förfallna huset, den lilla tjejen och frågan till Marco 😁 Underbara bilder som vanligt. Ha en trevlig helg!

    Dt går nästan inte att välja en favo, då alla nio bilder är suveräna. Men om jag måste så tar jag insekten, sälparet och tjejen som doppar tårna.

    Oh my Anita! I cannot believe how clear and precise your insect image is. You can literally see the reflection of what was in the front of its eyes!! Amazing. I loved all of your choices for this one. The little girl at water’s edge is probably my favorite but that insect shot is amazing.

    I loved them all. The expression, the creativity the detail all fantastic. Thought to ponder about the marry sign and I loved the tenderness of the little dipping her foot in the water. Fantastic Anita.

    Den första bilden är underbar. Den sista bilden visar att också hobbyfotografer måste visa prov på en viss vighet. Känner igen mig från de gånger jag legat raklång på en stig eller framför blomsterrabatten.

      Tack så mycket för din kommentar Stefan 😁

    Så igenkännande med mannen på sista bilden. Vad gör man inte för den ultimata bilden 🙂 🙂
    Superfina bilder och fin text.

    Vilken samling! Första gången jag såg bilden på den knubbiga insekten med metallglänsande vingar på din blogg så blev jag helt hänförd. Jag vill också! Så den översta bilden blir helt klart min favorit. Så fint ljus.

      Tack så mycket snälla Du.
