Weekly Photo Challenge: Close Up

WPC Banner

In response to The Daily Post’s weekly photo challenge: “Close Up”

This week’s challenge has encouraged us to get close up and personal with our subjects. I’ve got a few images for this – one by me, and two by LO (no, seriously LO actually took the photos – he’s great at it!)

So without further ado, here is my take:

It’s a close up of a wilted rose. It was taken on my Saumsung S5 and I applied a filter to it which has really brought out the purple hue in the rose. You can also see all of that wonderful condensation on the bottle neck. I love condensation on glass. 🙂

And here is LO’s submission for the WPC Close Up challenge:

Weekly Photo Challenge: Close Up
LO’s favourite filter

They’re meant to be “selfie” photos but he hasn’t quite gotten the hang of angling the iPhone front camera to shoot his whole face just yet hehe 🙂 He’s really good at taking these kind of photos and when I leave my phone with him, I’m always greeted with a lot of these ‘selfies’. He even applies the filters himself – the black/white is his fave followed by the more contrasted one. I thought this challenge was the perfect chance to use them (with his permission of course, plus the photos were taken on my phone which makes them mine right?!) as it’s a real close up of his wonderfully curly hair. You can see the variation in each curl, or bunch of curls shall I say.
