Week 42: Wrap up Photo101 Rehab

Every week I have the great pleasure to make this post. I am grateful for all support given by submitting entries and /or visiting the blogs of the participants.

It is the best way to strengthen this community of photobloggers, while appreciating the world from their diverse angles and perspectives. The Photo Rehab is truly a great community to share photos, learn new techniques, discover new talents, and connect.

In December 2014, after completing the Photo101 course, I opened the Photo Rehab Event in this blog, a ‘healing clinic’, for all of us who love photography (hobbyists, amateurs, pro-shooters and enthusiasts) who missed the course and daily interaction with other photobloggers.

Now it’s wrap up time!  The featured image is from Andy Townend. A sweet and profound shot showing his love and connection with his son.

You will see this week’s latest pictures, but I encourage you to follow the links below to visit the blogs of all ‘patients’!  Every photo has been linked to the blogs, so that you can see much more from their work. Don’t miss to visit them!

The stage is theirs!

Andy Townend inspires us again with monochrome mastery on Project 365 mobile and extraordinary  poetry.

BadFish brings to our attention, that “for the Balinese, preparing the rice paddy–something that happens most days somewhere on the island–holds an extra-ordinary sense of the ordinary becoming more than ordinary, something close to spiritual.”

Debbie at Deb’s World, asks the question: to be or knot to be? She was very surprised at the macro quality and clarity that her humble phone could produce. I was not…she finds beauty everywhere and knows how to capture it.

Mitch Zeissler’s at Exploratorius never ceases to amaze us with his stunning photos. This is a gallery where you appreciate nature in its splendor, and great monochrome shots.

Desley at Musings of a Frequent Flying Scientist is a ninja of macro photography, as  most of us who follow her already know. She will hike, crawl, jump, whatever is needed and get her shot done manually. This one wasn’t easy, as you can read in her blog, but as its sweetness appealed to her, as did the colours and the lightness and the feeling of this being just a fleeting moment in time.

Terri at Perspectives on shares photos of a Friday spent at the Aquatic Center having a team building session with her students (Leisure Lifestyle Development). Guess what the assignment was: Having fun! Lucky them to have a great teacher as Terri! She also shared a gallery of the beauty of the changing seasons, shown by images of her maple tree.

Terri at The Beespeak captured beautiful photos of a cardinal enjoying a bounty of berries. The cardinal is the state bird of Virginia and the dogwood is the state tree!

Janet at This, That and The Other Thing shares simplicity and peace in the 1st image. The 2nd is a quote and her shot proves it right.

Gun from Rantings of a Third Kind brings one of my favorites images, the glorious sunrise, and serene poetry to appreciate it fully.

Sunrise, higher than high
In the early October sky
Over the morning clouds
The sun has spread its shroud
Blues and reds playing in a mix
Eyes staring completely transfixed
The cool crisp air caressing
Almost feels like singing…

Marie from The New 3 R’s: Retire, Recharge, Reconnect brings beautiful images interpreting proximity to sadness. She has many more stunning images, and you should visit her blog to check them.

Thank you everyone for all fabulous entries!

If you didn’t see your photos here, apologies. I used all links to my blog, tags on the reader or entries to InLinkz. Make sure to add them there next time and let me know if it didn’t work.

HOW TO JOIN THE PHOTO REHAB

Time: The Clinic is open 24 x 7

Camera: You can use any camera, from DSLR, mirrorless, compact, to smartphones.

Theme: Bring your creativity and photograph a theme of your liking in B&W or Color. With or without edition. We like learning techniques as well, if you want to share it with everyone.

Who can join: Anyone can join. All you need is passion. Passion to speak up through images – or words, if you may want to add your thoughts to it as well – showing what you see and how much that is important to you.

You can do a self-examination. If you detect any of the following symptoms, as carefully described by Albert from the blog Trigger Happy, come and join us: “Withdrawal symptoms may include the incessant need to carry your camera everywhere with you, the need to wake up in the wee hours to take photos during the golden hour, and checking up on others you met during the course to see what their newfound knowledge has brought fruit to.”

How does it work:

  1. Shoot a photo.
  2. Prepare your post and publish it. Remember to add a link/Pingback to or any of my posts and to use the tag #PhotoRehab or #Photo101Rehab, so that we can find your post in the WP reader.
  3. Alternatively you can also add your photo to the link provided below. In this way, you expose your photo to the other participants and to the overall audience of the Photo Rehab. This is the best way for your photos to be seen. 
  4. Here is the link to add your photos. Knock the wall of the Clinic… and click on the image below:

  1. Ok, that’s it, a few more tears spilled today, thank you Lucile from both of us. Life can be a challenge some times, good and bad things happen, sometimes we lose focus, we lose who we are, then we remember, so thank you, again.

  2. Dears,
    I have visited all of your posts and liked what I saw, but placing my commenting here:

    With great anticipation
    Walking through each creation
    Humbled and honoured am I
    Lifting my spirits up high
    For each week to be part
    Of such great art
    From the black and whites
    To the birds in flight
    From the happy places
    To the winter stasis
    I tip my bonnet
    In this sonnet
    And bid you all
    A great night

    Your friend in photography (and poetry)
    Gun/Nilla
