Weekly Photo Challenge: Distorted

This week’s photo challenge is DISTORTED.   There are a variety of ways in which  DISTORTED photos can be ‘done’ for the challenge this week.  Initially I thought of taking simple photos and using Photoshop but I decided against this for many reasons.  I wanted to think of something different and original, although there are some great photos on the challenge which have used that medium.

Last week I dropped my ultraviolet filter and a great big chip appeared, I was not very happy with myself I can tell you.   It occurred to me, rather than throw it away,  I could use the filter which would create some great DISTORTED pictures.

That is what I intended to do until sitting in the lounge this evening watching the flame on the scented candle I had burning.   The reflection of the flame on the side of the glass was DISTORTED – ping!  Idea!  Voila!  Photo Challenge sorted.

A very pretty form of DISTORTED, don’t you agree?


  1. Brilliant idea! Love the different candle distortions. Anything that brings light and warmth is beautiful …. Stunning images. Have a great day!


  2. Gorgeous and what a great interpretation of the theme 🙂 also a great lover of candles, especially as our autumn and winter are just over the horizon!
