Here’s the explanation and example from WordPress (text and photo by Pick):
“In the Background: The places that we pass through day after day, or even once in a lifetime, leave in their small way, echoes and traces of themselves upon us. But so often when taking self portraits or pictures of friends, the places themselves become a soft blurred mush of indistinct semi-nothingness, the limelight stolen by our smiling faces. In today’s challenge, let’s turn the tables.
“Take a picture of yourself or someone else as a shadow, a reflection, or a lesser part of a scene, making the background, or — as in the example above — the foreground, the center of attention.”
The previous post “Weekly Photo Challenge: Culture” (below) also appears in the online newsletter Premium Designer Resources Daily at Premium Designer Resources Daily in the section “Leisure”, aggregated it seems by the WordPress web design pool, judging from the the content; editors’ box says: “Getting the best and freshest resources for Web Developers and Web Designers across the internet.”
Ang design ng blog na ito ngayon: Binabato ako ng mga bata (The design of the blog at present is: Kids joyously hurling rocks at me) (see background photo, this appears for posts with no main photo): Batuhin! (Get more rocks!)
Maybe that’s why the WordPress design pool cited it. i’m touched… looking out the window, trying to control my tears.
