Images & Words #101- Photographer/Photography

Hi there all, Mia here again to annoy you he he he... First of all I'd like to apologize for
not getting a chance to take part in the 100th celebration, sounds like everyone had
a super time!

This week I thought we'd try the theme "Photographer/Photography" and with that I mean
anything that depicts that. My example here below is of an innocent photographer totally
unaware of being watched by the Taniwha monster just waiting to pounce on him!!!  IIIIIIHHHH!!!
Typical of us photographers isn't it, we are so intent on our subjects, we don't see anything else lol..

Taniwha are water spirits of Maori legend. They may live in rivers, lakes or the sea, and can take many forms; logs, eels, reptiles or whales. They are often regarded by local people as guardians of that stretch of water, but some are evil monsters.


Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still
                                               Dorothea Lange


The Rules:


Each week we will post an original photo with words on it. The idea behind this group is to expand our minds through our photography.


Photos must be your own, but the words can be someone else's as long as credit is given after the words. Your post can either be serious, or if you'd like comical, but never obscene . Posts can either have one word on them,quotes, or full poems ... Your choice.


All posts are to be done on your own site in a blog form with a link back to it being left here. New topics will be posted on Sundays. Posts can be made through Saturday.


One post per person only please

Have lots of fun and I will too when checking out your entries!


  1. Love the theme and your photo, Mia, is an awesome entry on it!

  2. Hmmmm...interesting theme. Will have to think on this one. Love your photo Mia, it really does look like a monster about to pounce!!

  3. hmmmm must think on that one--
    yours is wonderful

  4. LOL Mitch, you've started the hmmm- ing ....

  5. "altering life by holding it still" I sincerely like this quote. Mia

  6. Friends, you don't need to be too literal with the theme. It could be a popular subject that many photographers use, like a landmark for instance or something inspiring for photographers...

  7. We missed you last week Mia.
    The theme this week is terrific and so is your surprising photo.
    I love a mystery and the photo setting, is one that could have my imagination running wild.

  10. What a Theme, I have a headache. Will have to think this one out ! Love your photograph! I don't think I have ever ever taken a picture of someone else with a camera in their hand, except for trying to take one of myself in the mirror, that is.

  11. What a wonderful shot of that gnarled tree. He seems to be totally mezmerized by the troll-like appearance of it. The quote is so true and fits the image so well.
