The theme of this week’s showcase challenge was ‘Connections’. The idea behind this theme was to make a connection between the subject of a photo and the viewer or capture a moment in time when the subject of a photo connected with someone or something else within the frame. By capturing a moment where a connection has been made with the subject of an image, will allow you to able to convey a strong feeling, emotion or story through your photography.

Featured photographers include: Joseph Cyr, by_eljay, iphonecameragirl, Robin Schnepp, Joel Worthington, Jessica Fielden, Christine Mignon, Aung Ko Latt, Raahul24, and Wunlaw.

Framed by light and memory

Framed by light and memory‘ by Joseph Cyr – “I took this with my iPhone X last weekend and converted it to black and white with Snapseed.

The Atocha train station in Madrid was the site of a horrific terrorist attack in March 2004. Within the station, this austere space has been set aside as a monument to the victims. A cylinder of light, into which a spiral of words from loved ones, in many languages, rises, supported only by the air pressure in the chamber. My wife and I paused to enter the somber memorial for a few minutes, thinking of the lives of travelers and commuters that were forever taken in this busy place, not so many years ago. Life goes on, travels continue, commutes take up our time, but may memories not get lost in the shuffle…”

Love Locks

Love Locks‘ by by_eljay – “This photo was taken on an IPhone X then cropped and edited in Snapseed. I was on a morning walk between Caloundra and Kings beach and when I saw these two locks and it intrigued me as to why they were there, how long they had been there and who were their owners.  Perhaps a story of love? We will never know.”

Gritty New York wedding

Gritty New York wedding‘ by Barbara Frish – @iphonecameragirl – “I stumbled across a wedding shoot in NYC and couldn’t resist taking a shot. This was edited in Snapseed and Lightroom Mobile. It was taken on an iPhone 7plus.”

Sunset Love

Sunset Love‘ by Robin Schnepp – “The picture came about when my family and I were on our way back from a holiday in France – we were on the last leg of the ferry’s journey, so we went up onto the top deck.There was a beautiful, misty, warm glow surrounding the deck due to the setting sun – it was stunning. I went round the deck looking for subjects to take pictures of silhouetted against the sun, then noticed my wife and my son playing on the other side, so I ran over to capture the moment. It was taken on my Galaxy S7, and edited solely in Snapseed – I increased the contrast and shadows slightly, to bring out the darks, and added a bit of saturation to bring out the glow.”

Untitled

Untitled‘ By Joel Worthington – “I snapped this shot while on a work trip to Toronto. I believe it’s the middle “O” in the famous 3D Toronto sign (which is also super cool when lit up at night!). Tourists love having their picture taken here, so it’s ripe for some candid street photography. I couldn’t help but grab my iPhone 6s when I saw this adorable couple making the most of their own shot. I finished this up a bit in VSCO and Lightroom.”

Untitled‘ by Christine Mignon – “The photo was taken in Sicily at the Scala Dei Turcchi in 2016. It’s a huge white rock forming natural stairs. The picture shows a moment of life and reality. It’s important to me that it’s not ment to make fun of anyone, but to make people think the relativity of beauty.”
