Words by kouralilly:
if you want to know
the definition of courage,
ask the flower,
growing from the crack
in the sidewalk.
it cut through the break
of the steel cold cement.
it’s brilliant bold green
amongst the stark
it unfurled it’s leaves.
and lifted it’s head.
and then dared
Im a reporter/photographer at Athens Banner-Herald and Onlineathens.com. This was a shot I took during a fire training exercise.
I've been very inspired by xobreexo23's amazing works of art. They lead me in the direction of the avant garde style where I used to find myself working. I decided to return there with this REmix. I can't speak to Bree's portion but for me there's no deep meaning; it's just weird and hopefully amusing. Feel free to read all sorts of shit into it and write a pretentious museum label for it.
As far as I can tell, Bree set up her entire scene on location so I did the same. Yes, that's a real prairie dog (no Photoshop trick) and no, they don't live in the woods or anywhere near me.
The biggest challenge was to make the two parts look like they are part of the same diptych. I did not do any color adjustments to Bree's piece. I had to make several layers of my photo to manipulate different areas so that the overall tonality would match. Given that they were shot in different locations with different lighting, it was a bit of an uphill battle and it's not perfect. It seems to work well enough, though. What do you think?
I orignally had the burning desire to make this a cinemagraph but (a) I was not sure what elements to have move and (b) it was already hard to make this and (c) I thought it might just be better as a big jpg than an animated gif. Maybe I'll still do another version.
Please go to Bree's RECord in the REsources and give it a <3 if you recommend this one--or even if you don't!
for the RECordographic Lens Project :o)
Most of my creations happen on the computer, but sometimes I love to create rings out of old pendants, Russian UN badges and bending spoons.
Found a set of Jazz Art on here that I thought could fit perfectly as props in the Family Patterns Collab.
I would like to give thanks to all of the people who have supported me on this site. I'm actually a very shy person in real life, so it is quite a feat for me to share my work with so many...
