Photography – Week 38
In what has become a tradition for the family, I work with each of the kids (3yo is not in the mix yet) to make their own Valentine’s Day cards for their class. It’s amusing and we end up with some interesting cards that represent their own unique ideas. It has been interesting to watch how their concepts and participation have evolved and my oldest (10) is now taking his own pictures and doing some Photoshop work on his own. We order the photos from Snapfish- giving us a class worth for about $3.00. Like making animated gifs, it seems to help turn on a lens of analysis long term and they think like this throughout the year. It’s not 3D printing, but the cycle from imagining something, creating it digitally, and then ending up with a physical product is there. cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr photo shared by Tom Woodward cc licensed ( BY SA ) flickr […]
I liked how the window bar works almost like one of those black bars to hide someone’s identity. He initially posed with his eyes rolled back in his head.

Trees and the old brick of the buildings here continue to interest me. I’m also still interested in your lonely pets.
This one was made entirely by the book covers. I liked the glimpse it gave of how she spent her time on the bus. I’m not exactly sure where this bus comes from but it drops off a number of people each day and it is an interesting group. “That mother . . . . just took our picture.” Closest to drama I’ve gotten thus far although I have been accused of being with the FBI and/or police with the stranger photo series. I still find the colors of the leaves to be impressive. I particularly like them over bricks and cobblestones. Lots of personality in that stride. The lens flare may be a bit over the top but I liked the imperfections in combination with the sic semper tyrannis in the background. We found this snake while wandering around in the woods. It was one that releases a rather unpleasant musk when it’s unhappy. The kids handled it for a while anyway. I like the mix here of the curve of the snakes neck, the pattern of the scales, and the variety of textures. The brightness of autumn leaves and rain slick cobblestones . . . There’s so much properness here. She is headed someplace, probably church. There’s also something about vines and bricks. A lot of the things […]
