The Tuesday Inspiration: Pulling the strings

by Helen Hooker June. 21, 2011 4727 views

I wasn??t sure how to shoot for today??s theme then I remembered this little toy giraffe which lives in Kevin??s study and I thought it fitted the bill rather nicely. It??s one of those toys where you press a button in the bottom and the giraffe collapses as the tension is released from the string through its joints. I tried a straight on portrait shot but this quirky framing worked better for me.

Thanks to Nellinka (Nellinka [photoblog.com]) for setting today??s theme. Last Tuesday??s theme was ??Clouds??. The other interpretations of this week??s theme can be found here [photoblog.com].

The ??Tuesday Inspiration? began in 2009 when Stefan [photoblog.com] and I started setting each other a photographic challenge on a? Tuesday. Very soon afterwards, we decided to open this up to other PB members, followed by the idea that we should not reveal what the subject is, so that other members could compare how different members view a single theme. The Tuesday Inspiration is not a contest or a challenge, but a group of people all agreeing to post their interpretation of a single theme on Tuesdays. Each week, one of the contributors sets the theme. There are now over 40 members contributing to the TI. We have only two ??rules?: don??t include the subject in the TI title or tags and please comply with standard PB guidelines on courtesy, etc. If you would like to take part, please send me a message via this blog.
