Weekly Photo Challenge: In the Background

By Vladimir Brezina

This week’s Photo Challenge is In the Background: “Take a picture of yourself or someone else as a shadow, a reflection, or a lesser part of a scene, making the background… the center of attention.”

This photo seems to fit the challenge—

  25. Perfect challenge response — and at last, a glimpse of the man behind the paddle!
    (BTW, I think of this post as being for Johna, my adopted exercise guru:

    If you’d show it to her? TIA)

    • There are other photos of me, here for instance—Johna has been insisting on including them :-)

      And of course I will point out your post to her—she will sympathize ;-)

      Hi Judith! Great post! As one of your commenters said (I’m paraphrasing).. you take your mindfulness where you can get it. I love being someone’s “adopted exercise guru”–there are days when I think that would be a wonderful second career (or would that be third? Fourth? I’ve lost count…).

      BTW I noticed one of the books on your shelf is Brenda Ueland’s “If You Want To Write”–one of the best books in the universe about living life with passion (writing is secondary). So cool!!

      And BTW #2…. did you ever read about her romance with Fridtjof Nansen, Norwegian explorer, when he was approximately 70 and she was in her 30s? Wonderful, wonderful story.

      Anyway, thanks for posting–and I am doing my best to get photos of Vlad into the blog. It’s difficult–he has this habit of shutting his eyes and opening his mouth just as the camera clicks…. :-)

      • Good luck on capturing the Elusive Masculine with the camera. Men are always writing about The Eternal Feminine, or some such. Why not have women photographing The Elusive Masculine? Obviously, Fridtjof Nansen was hardly elusive. Simply Masculine.
        What a story, Nansen and Ueland! It’s got it all, greatness and intellect and national pride and full frontal nudity. Thanks for (as it were) putting me in the picture.

          The “elusive masculine”! I love it. Yes, there’s a side of Vlad that I’ll never give up on attempting to capture with the camera. But as usual, he does it better than I…..

          And you got it re: Nansen and Ueland! As you say, greatness and intellect and national pride and passion… and full frontal nudity—so you saw THAT photo :-) :-).

          Life is stranger and more wonderful than you can even imagine when you’re very young…
