WPC {2011} Spotlights: Fear

At first, “fear” might seem difficult to capture in one week’s time.  After snooping around the Flickr group, I’d say that you guys had no problem whatsoever.  There are some really good photos this week!  You people are so frickin creative and clever and I think this might be my favorite week so far.  So I wanted to post a spotlight reel.

wpc#7 - (facing the) fear
by mafaldafcpb

Looks of fear.  A series of self-portraits.  That is a fear in and of itself because I have never had eight shots I was happy with in one SP shoot.  Never.  And I love this.  High-fives all around.

Just Beat It
by Hasselbach Photography

Fear of being beat.  Ha!  Clever is back for the win.  You can expect that anything that is remotely witty, I’m in love with it.  This totally qualifies.

Fear
by Space-Case (aka PodMate)

Fear of alien invasions.  So PodMate’s photo makes me really happy for two reasons.  One is that it, too, is clever and the colors are like whoa.  Two because she loves it and I see it as her screensaver when I walk past her desk.

Week 7: Fear
by MileMarkerZero

Fear of the Blair Witch.  That movie freaked me out.  For the record, I’ll confess I’m easily freaked out.  But with this fun fella reenacting the flashlight scene… I’m not so freaked out.  I’m actually smiling.  Great idea and framing, Shelly.

the closet
by duffalo

Fear of someone watching.  So. Frickin. Creative.  I haven’t seen a keyhole in a door in years but this is such a fun, and very creepy, to interpret “fear.”  Yes.  Very creepy.

Fear
by klubbers

Fear of public speaking.  Hits home.  I can pull off a presentation but there is no promise that I won’t start talking with a thicker accent and/or remove layers of clothing to keep from sweating in front of people.  And I really dig the processing on this photo.

photo challenge ~ fear
by Victoria Riddle

Fear of bed monsters.  Oh Victoria!!  Colors and reflections and fear, oh my!

Fear of not being Chosen
by kortneypaige

Fear of rejection.  This here is a marketing vampire.  This puppy is so cute that we could possibly overlook the fact that he did all that shredding on his own.  Great shot – and I love the light feeling of the processing.

Week 7: Fear
by CarsonHBM

Vertigo has set in.  I can’t stare at this picture very long.  But yeah.  We got it.  Fear of heights.  Yeah.  Moving on.

WPC Week Seven - Fear - Am I a Pretty Spider?
by PagX

Fear of spiders.  There were so many cool spider photos in the group.  The idea of catching one of these guys for a photo-op isn’t my idea of a good time.  But this gal is huge.  And her reflection is huge.  And she scares me.

I really hope you guys are enjoying the challenge and list of subjects.  I can’t get over how fast it’s flying by.  And I can’t over how many awesome photos are being shared.  Good luck finding “white.”  I think I’ve already got mine in the bag.

Victoria - This week definitely brought people out or their comfort zones!
And to think that I had no idea what I was gonna do till late Tuesday night trying to not think about the fact that Mr. Riddle was away for a few days for work. In the end I was happy with what I had gotten.
Thanks for adding me. Such good company to be in!

Wendi @ Bon Appetit Hon - Thanks for showcasing some of the entries. I think this wrap up should become a regular Challenge feature. The eye through the keyhole and the “monsters” are brilliant.

Amanda - I like these pics!

Shelly B - Thanks for the shout out Brooke! I couldn’t believe all of the awesome spider shots this week. More to to them because I would never be able to get one! (The fun fella loves his new “fun fella” title. haha)
