For Cee’s new photo challenge today each of my proverbial 20 photos will be graded and you’ll be able to guess which were taken in Italy and which in Slovenia.
First, here is Cee’s original photo and I hope she doesn’t mind me reposting it.
Our task was to post a similar photo (or 20) with some of the same components. Let’s count them: brick (Br), building, bushes (Bu), curtain (C), dark red (DR), geometry (G), green (Gr), tan (Ta), tree (Tr), turquoise (Tu), wall, window. Twelve in all.
Since all my photos contain a building, a wall and at least one window, these three points are given to each photo automatically.
Geometry is a tricky one since it’s everywhere but in some photos it’s more evident so they get a G point.
There is a tree or a bush in every photo as well, but I’m still going to award Bu and Tr points to each photo accordingly.
Even though brick is more or less everywhere too, a Br point will only be awarded to the photos with individual bricks showing.
A C point will be given to photos with curtains but not with blinds.
As for colours, the points Gr (for green), Ta (for tan), DR (for dark red) and Tu (for turquoise) will be awarded only where they prominently feature in the photo (sometimes it’s an approximation of said colour).
Let’s do it!
And here are the results: photos are ordered by the point count out of possible 12. Neither is perfect but all photos have surpassed half points, which proves that all were worthy of inclusion.
Additional task for my regular visitors: try to guess whether a photo was taken in Italy (two further options are Tuscany or Rome) or in Slovenia (either Ljubljana or the coast). The answers are hidden in the filename of each photo. And in one photo there is a house where I grew up.
Only when I was awarding the points I noticed that on two occasions two photos show the same building in different seasons.
Thank you, Cee, for this interesting challenge! And I’ve got just the photos for Weeks 2 and 3 as well. 😉 Have a look which photos she has chosen as a challenge for the next four weeks.
And since we are on the subject of architecture, if you happen to be in New York, go to MoMA to see the exhibition on amazing Yugoslavian architecture, including my mom’s place of work for many years, Iskra (the building on the right in the Revolution Square, Ljubljana).
