I have put together three images of relaxing.
Firstly, here we have a biker relaxing.
This week’s challenge is Relax (click the link for other interpretations).
Secondly, an old photo from a couple of summers ago of three old men relaxing in the waves at Qobuleti on the Black Sea Coast.

Finally, a dog and his pup relaxing on the stone steps of an old church.
A photograph itself is a kind of Magic. In its simplest form, it captures a moment gone and preserves a place and time unchanged on its two-dimensional plane. The mechanics of that alone are an astounding feat, where the goal is the image produced and the subject is clearly framed and readily recognised.
The image, I have selected for the challenge uses some AI trickery. I took a photo of the fountain in Pushkin Square, Tbilisi and transmogrified it using Prisma, an app on my phone, which sends the image to the Prisma servers and returns the image altered in a chosen style in around 5 seconds…all very clever, all slightly magical….the “filter” or style I chose is called “electric”.

Here are a couple of images from today’s rush hour in Tbilisi. The first of Station Square metro, the only station where two metro lines meet in Tbilisi and the second a view from a bus stuck on a bridge in a traffic jam looking at another traffic jam on the bank of the Mtkvari river.

This week’s challenge comes form a term employed by Bill Waterson in the epic Calvin and Hobbes strip:Transmogrify (for more information and other interpretations click on the link).
Calvin transmogrified into a creepy crawly to gross Susie out, I prefer the transmogrification of the leaves in Autumn.

This week’s challenge is Shine (click the link for other interpretations).
When I saw the challenge, I thought of the very shiny St George on his column in Liberty Square, Tbilisi. A monument I see almost every day, here with and without a star filter effect.

This is local, it is the view from our block.

It has been a while since I submitted multiple entries to one of the weekly challenges, but this challenge H2O is particularly inspiring.
resigned to getting soaked
There is a lot of fun to be had taking water related pictures.
This is my second post for this week’s challenge, I didn’t entitle it “H2O2” because that would be lethal… for other interpretations of the challenge click here: H2O
This week’s challenge is H2O.
