Thematic Photographic 283 - Return to the scene of the crime

Peanuts. Always peanuts.
London, ON
February 2014
I'm somewhat ashamed to admit I haven't been shooting as much lately as I'd like. I think I've been grabbing a lot of snaps with the smartphone or tablet, but that's not the same as making a date with the DSLR, pulling the tripod out and having a little fun through the lens.

So this weekend that's just what I did. With a bunch of M&Ms. Because I knew they wouldn't complain. And when I was done, I knew I could munch on them. Within reason: gotta watch myself, after all.

This long overdue kitchen table photo session got me thinking: How often do we take lots of different pictures of the same thing? And how do we decide which pose, which perspective, wins?

Well, this week, we won't have to. As part of this week's theme, return to the scene of the crime, we'd like you to post a pic of a scene to get things started. Then, later in the week, post another pic of the same thing, only make it a different pose, a different perspective, and different way of looking at the same thing. Two pics, two days, two ways of seeing the same thing.

Got it? I can't wait to see what you come up with.

Your turn: Take TWO pics that evoke this week's shot. Post the first one early in the week, and the second one - same subject, different perspective - later in the week. Leave comments here letting folks know where to find it. Visit other participants and tell your mom, too. For more info on how Thematic works, click here. And thanks!

Oh Carmi, great capture, and you know what's on my shopping list now! This is a tremendously FUN theme and I'm so ready to play detective! Oh Watson, are you out there? Here's mine

This is an interesting challenge that you've set us this week. I might need a store of chocolate coated peanuts to sustain me on the hunt for clues.

Not sure if I've got a hold on what you want Carmi, but here's my first shot!
