Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background

Portsoy's lonely window- In the Background

In the Background- a lone wall with window overlooking the North Sea at Portsoy, Scotland

I have to conduct a funeral this morning, no time to write long blogs.  This photo was taken on my healing trip to Scotland in 2006. Overlooking the harbour of Portsoy there stands this lone wall on a hill. It is all that is left of the house. And this window must have given such a view to the inhabitants then.

In the Background: The places that we pass through day after day, or even once in a lifetime, leave in their small way, echoes and traces of themselves upon us. But so often when taking self portraits or pictures of friends, the places themselves become a soft blurred mush of indistinct semi-nothingness, the limelight stolen by our smiling faces. In today’s challenge, let’s turn the tables. Take a picture of yourself or someone else as a shadow, a reflection, or a lesser part of a scene, making the background, or — as in the example above — the foreground, the center of attention.

pickIn a new post created for this challenge, share a picture that says In the Background.

I’m looking forward to seeing you all but disappear into the moments you capture.

– Pick
