Thematic Photographic 104 - Dotty


The 5-second rule no longer applies
London, ON, June 2010


I've chosen "dotty" as this week's Thematic Photographic theme because we seem to be surrounded by the little buggers. Everywhere we look, there are dots of varying sizes, colors and consistencies. The irony of the online age is that every electronic screen known to humankind uses arrays of dots - pixels - to display images and text. We just need to look a little more closely to see 'em.

So for the next week, I'm hoping you'll point your lenses toward anything remotely dot-like. The point (sorry, couldn't help it) of it all is to enjoy the photographic vibe and spread some creativity far and wide.

Your turn: Take a dot-themed photo - or pull one from your archives - and post it to your blog. Paste the link in a comment here, then feel free to visit other participants. Dotty goodness shall ensue, as will karma and early-summer photographic happiness. Please click here for more background on how Thematic Photographic, our weekly photo theme nuttiness, works.

FWIW, I didn't eat the yellow M&M. It sacrificed itself for photographic posterity.

I don't let any M&M get away - yum.

In the meantime I've joined the "dotty" photo meme.

My dots are here though I did manage to get you Carmi in my reference but not the Thematic Challenge page. I'm going wrong somewhere with my links!

Great photo Carmi! I love the colour contrast....bright yellow will always be a happy colour.

I've missed taking part in the thematic photography and will jump on board this Wednesday. I've also missed reading everyone's blogs. My head is above water and life has slowed down a bit. Can't wait to catch up!!!

cheers.

Late as usual... but I finally found my "dotty, spotty" for the week.

You did well to photograph that M&M in 4 seconds.
