Lens-artists Photo Challenge #47 – The Five Elements

Amy challenges us with illustrating the Chinese theory of the five elements: Metal, Wood, Water, Fire, and Earth.

So here goes for wood by the water:

On the shore

Some metal amidst the wood and earth:

Ford Anglia amidst the moss, Kyrko Mosse

And lastly, earth and fire:

  1. Amy

    I love how elements are connected to earth. Well interpreted, Sue!
    Three great photos for this theme. 🙂

  2. Great interpretation of the theme, Sue. I love that rusting car, which will slowly decompose and return to the earth.

  3. You were all over that theme, Sue. Great work!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  4. Terrific examples Sue. Love how you combined multiple elements

  5. Love your elements, Sue, especially the last with the fire in the shadows. Cool shot..or should I say Hot Shot! 🤣

  6. That old jallopy is so you, Sue! Take care! 🙂 🙂

  7. Love the combos, Sue – that is the way they work, the elements. Together in interaction. You always wonder what you have…but you have it all!

  8. Great photos for the subject Sue 🙂

  9. nice take on the elements and the ending shadows add the “us” – the humans – well done
    oh and the shadows at the end kind of wrap up the post visually – with a bottom border – very cool

  10. Earth and fire is an intriguing shot Sue 🙂
