Project 52-10-40: Portals
Posted By: djb47, 06-10-2022, 03:18 PM

The definition of a portal is a doorway or entrance into something else. It can be grand and imposing or as simple as an opening through which passengers on a ship can view the outside world. A portal serves as an entry point and is quite remarkable as it provides a corridor to the world. As you look through a portal and view the world, it would be nice if a connection could be made between the portal and the scene beyond. Be creative as you enter the world of photographic portals.


Photos for Project 52-10-40 are to be taken and posted between Jum 10 - Jun 23.

Upcoming Projects:
P52-10-41Break The Rules 6/17
P52-10-42 Chaos 6/24
P52-10-43 An Ordinary Moment 7/1
P52-10-44 A Different Perspective 7/8


Rules:
1. Anyone and everyone who is interested is eligible. The goal continues to be
have fun and share comments, concepts, insights, and techniques with fellow
Pentaxians.
2. Each week will feature a Theme and Sub-concept for you to explore.
3. Post your single picture in Project 52-10 thread for the week. Explain what
motivated you to take the picture or how it represents the weekly theme.
4. Some post-processing is OK (adjusting white balance, exposure, color
saturation), but let's try to stay away from heavily PP'ed images here. Try to
keep the creativity to photographic techniques and the captures themselves.
5. Since this project is about technique, and not camera, shots taken by non
Pentax cameras are allowed. Cameras may be SLRs, DSLRs, Point & Shoot,
Medium Format, etc. But no phones, please.
6. There is one “Theme Concept” labeled “black and white,” but feel free to post
black and white, sepia, monotone, etc., for any of the other themes.
7. The picture you post should be taken during the week in which the theme is
active to be eligible for judging.
8. Any picture taken from thread start date to listed closing date is acceptable.

Had to run errands today and was able to get a few more portals. Clockwise; Castle Bridge Boat Launch -- recreational portal to the Catawba River; neighborhood portals; County Courthouse -- portal of justice; local church -- portal of salvation for some; Bernhardt loading dock -- cargo portals.

I took this with this challenge in mind, but I'm not sure about it. I may change it is a magic portal appears.
