K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Futurism

Hello Monday and welcome to a brand new week. Welcome also to a brand new ‘K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge’.

This week the challenge prompt is FUTURISM.

Now, what makes the topic FUTURISM a somewhat easier challenge than some of our earlier ones is any post based on an idea dealing with… the future qualifies as ‘challenge-worthy’.

In my search for a worthy definition, I decided to go with an actual artistic / social movement that came out of Italy near the beginning of the twentieth century.

The two areas of interest I focused on were technology and industrial design. Architecture has always been something I’ve had interest in, and when you couple this with concepts of futurism, well I came up with the following photo slideshow, taken at, of all places, the San Francisco main branch of the public library. I come here to write and research on a regular basis, but these shots represent one of the few times I showed up with my ‘serious’ camera.

Needless to say, the shots here are only a few of the thirty to fifty I took that day. I may have to do another post to spotlight some of the others.

Want to join in the challenge? It’s not too hard. Just create your post with a title similar to what I’ve done above or what my buddy Dale has got cooking over at his site

Copy the URL from your post’s address into the comment section of either this or Dale’s post, and don’t forget to add the #CosPhoChal tag to your tags so we and others can find you easily!

Show us your FUTURISM!

UPDATE:

Dale pulled no punches on this week’s challenge. Don’t believe me? Check out his entry right here
