K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge: Faster Than the Speed of Light!

prompts, challenges, photography, creativity

Good Morning, Afternoon, or Evening All. Welcome to Obzervashunal and another, ‘K’lee and Dale’s Cosmic Photo Challenge’.

Each week my buddy Dale and I alternate offering up various photographic challenges both to keep our creative skills sharp and even more importantly, just to have a little fun.

This week it’s my turn. On this past Friday I came up with the following prompt:

San Francisco Fleet Week, Air Shows, Blue Angels

When I thought to use the image above for Friday’s prompt, it led me to thinking I should keep my focus on airspeed and aircraft, digging into my archives of lots of shots taken from airshows over the years.

As I sometimes do, I changed my mind and instead decided to use a few of the shots from one of San Francisco’s iconic summertime events, The Escape From Alcatraz Triathlon.

This was a photographic first for me and as thrilled as I was with the sunny skies, weather still offered up its own challenges with wind speeds tilting upward to thirty miles per hour (sorry metrics).

The shots below, or I should say the painted graphics I created based on the photos I took last weekend, were the only portion of the triathlon I ended up shooting. The second portion of the race continued on, but the wind caused a cancellation of the swimming part. I know lots of the contestants were down on that news, but in an attempt to keep it fair the running and cycling distances were modified to make up for the loss.

With that said, here’s what I came up with:

So, there you have it. My version of Faster Than the Speed of Light. I suppose at the end of the day, I stuck with the triathlon racing shots because cycling is one of my great loves to this day.

Got an idea for this challenge?

Giving it a go is not as hard as you might think.

Here’s what you need to do:

Create your post with a title similar to the  title above. Copy your freshly made post’s URL and paste it into the comment section of either this post OR at Dale’s site (he’s linked above!). Be sure to use our, #CosPhoChal tag along with your other tags. This makes it a bit easier to find your fantastic creation(s) and you’re done!

Have a fantastic Monday, All!
