Photos We Loved: “Change”

A roundup of our favorite submissions to the “Change” photo challenge.

Last week, we enjoyed sifting through your submissions for Kristin Snow’s “Change” photo challenge. From volatile skies to the juxtaposition of old and new, here are our favorite interpretations of the theme:

2812 Photography

Freelance photographer Pete Rosos at 2812 Photography set up his camera to take multiple shots of a clock at one-second intervals. He then combined the images in Photoshop to create this fantastic image commenting on our perception of time.

Taking One Day at a Time

Sarah Longes at Taking One Day at a Time stayed out through a misty night with her husband to capture this eclipse sequence of the super blood moon, in the North Downs, south of London, England. She captured about 90 images, all processed in Adobe RAW converter, then moved them into Photoshop to create the spiral sequence, which she designed after the Fibonacci spiral.

View From a French Hillside

It struck me as I clicked away with my trusty modern Nikon how much things have changed over these many decades and yet how they have also remained the same.

Jane Morley at View From a French Hillside recently bought two vintage cameras, a Kodak Box Brownie and a Voigtländer. Here, she photographs them alongside Vogue magazines from the 1930s and 40s in an homage to the past, and shows that while equipment has evolved over time, a photographer’s search for light and beauty remains unchanged.

An active, ever-changing sky was a common subject among your submissions — here’s a trio of interpretations at Russels Lof, Thirty Summers, and Travel. Garden. Eat.

Pix to Words

I love a road
Through wide open spaces
Where straight lines
Reel through the changes

At Pix to Words, photographer Patrick Jennings captures a stretch of land, sky, and Highway 87 in the US state of Arizona. His accompanying poem evokes not only change, but freedom and discovery.

A Trivial Mind at Work

Dennis Wagoner at A Trivial Mind at Work shares four snapshots of the same scene — a path at a park — through each of the seasons.

Leya

Ann-Christine at Leya juxtaposes old and new architecture in Bellinzona, Switzerland, showing the evolution of a place in one snapshot.

Papricannelle

Zsuzsa at Papricannelle similarly plays with old and new, but in a very different way. She photographs baby and elderly hands, celebrating the cycle of life and reminding us that we are constantly changing, each and every day.

Lucile de Godoy

Finally, Lucile’s pair of photos in her post, “The Hardest Mission: Know and Change Thyself,” encapsulates the “change” theme well. I love the second shot in particular, which captures the sensation of wandering and getting lost amongst a crowd — and the bustle of a street.

  7. Hey thanks so much for this recap. My ‘take’ on change was more about philosophy than photography so chuffed to be included. I’m loving checking out the others you have selected too. Remember to ‘look up’ sometimes :). Thanks again
