The idea being to get "pushed" out of one's comfort zones and try something different photography-wise... I was paired up with @carmel... the challenge I was given was to find and photograph something with bright, bold colours; something that could belong to a particular ethnic tradition that has a bit of a design to it.
At a loss for where to find something apropos (that I could get to between work and kids), I headed off to the local museum after work today and found the above reconstruction of a Palace Hall in the imperial style of the Qing dynasty (China). I have no idea if this is the kind of thing contemplated, and I am really struggling with just about everything about this image. I had to shoot inside in rotten light, at a difficult (for me) angle. There are a gazillion lines, but none line up and it's a thing that it would never occur to me to photograph.
Give it to me straight folks - all constructive criticism welcome!
(you may be amused to know that for "fun", I played around with converting it to b&w ;p)
