Weekly Photo Challenge: TOGETHER (1)

One gumball machine in the mall isn’t much of anything —

But how about a phalanx of them? Phalanx, from the Greek, serried rows of warriors or other assembled people or things, massed together — Well, that makes for quite a display:

On the other hand, masses and multitudes and mobs aren’t really my photographic thing. I’m for the one-to-one conversation, the single image, Β the up close and personal. So let’s zoom in on just two of them together, filled with their luridly colored goodies, in a shot that’s more my style, thank you —

    Wonderful colours!

    But JB, the two gumball machines participating towards the rear of the photograph appear to have a multitude of colors. Maybe this proves that small groups can provide interior diversity after all.

    I like the idea … the take on ‘Together’, and the colours! I no longer feel tempted to eat them, though πŸ™‚ Interesting thought by fb..

  5. Love those gumball machines, the wonderful colors and shapes, both the many and the few. You have a great eye.

    I’m not much of a group girl either but that phalanx of machines is really quite fetching. So MUCH of one thing, and so varied. They don’t intimidate as much as they fascinate. Were they warriors, on the other hand…

      I mean, how much can one quail before gumballs??????

      • Pauline says:

        laughing – exactly! Isn’t it interesting what our reactions to masses of things are? A host of daffodils delights, a host of tanks would intimidate. It’s the perceived danger, I imagine, though were those gumball machines to release their treasure all at one roll, I’d be frantically scrambling to get away!

      • Touch2Touch says:

        And there’s a funny mental picture to start off the day! Scrabbling in a sea of gumballs —

    Phalanx just makes me think of bones … in the hand, and its joints πŸ˜† PIP=proximal intermediate phalanges.

    How about that for useless information…

  8. Let’s hear it for the up-close-and-personal! Great colors in these!!

    “I’m for the one-to-one conversation, the single image, the up close and personal.” Same here. I do like your phalanx, though.

    I adore both ends of the photography/image spectrum. I love close-up shots of an individual image; but I also treasure images of lage-scale repetition. This post serves them both well! πŸ™‚
