Weekly Photo Challenge: Peace

This week, the theme is to:

Photograph peace

It’s a conceptual challenge this week. Discover what does peace look like in a photograph.

Nature can be peaceful like this forest on a foggy morning.

Spring Fog

Forest disappears into the fog.

Peaceful can be a static scene that evokes calm and tranquility. Using long exposure can smooth any movement and create a calming effect.

Photo Pagoda

Long exposure photo. Sunset at the Nathan Frank Bandstand (Pagoda) outside the Muny in Forest Park.
Sony A7II 28 mm 3sec@f16 ISO400

People relaxing on a hot summer day can also be peaceful.

Photo Lounging on the Lawn

Lounging on the lawn at the Festival of Nations in Tower Grove Park, St. Louis, Missouri.

Cemeteries are often places of peace where we can contemplate life and death and remember those we have lost.

Photo Stillness

Stillness
Christopher Colon Cemetery in Havana, Cuba sees 40 burials a day, but the large cemetery has places of intense peace.

There are many symbols of peace including peace signs, doves, olive branches.

  2. Referred here by the lovely Cee Neuner, who kindly corrected me when I first mistook this to be one of her challenges. She pointed me in the right direction and now I found another fun challenge to follow!

    This is my entry. It got calm water and boats in it. So it looked like peace to me. 🙂

  4. Love the bandstand shot. I found this through Cee’s blog and inadvertently have a post today that would work well for peace, even though it’s not labeled as such. I hope that’s fine.
