Sometimes it is difficult to decide to go
with the original or the recreated.
Today I will go with the recreated.
God loved flowers and invented soil. Man loved
the flowers and invented vases.

Ok, get your tissues, and watch this! This 96 year old man was married for 73 years, and right after his wife died, he wrote a song, then seeing an add in the paper, he sent it in to a song writer contest. It didn't qualify because it was handwritten, but they were so touched by the song they produced it for him and now it is #9 on iTunes. Help make it #1 by purchasing it on iTunes, and squash all that pop junk!
Things that make you go hmmmmm....... Here is a time-lapse (well sort of ) video of a women aging over the span of the video. After watching the video, read the article here at Peta Pixel to see how and what they did to make this video. The film was created by filmmaker Anthony Cerniello and some very skilled friends.
The process of aging is very fascinating to me. When ever I meet someone who is elderly, I always want to see pictures of them when they were young. You think of someone who is old as a different person than their younger self, but as I age I realize, I am still the same person under this weathered exterior. So much so that at times I feel I am an adult in disguise. Sure we mature, and tweek things here and there, but does our soul really age? Perhaps that is why aging is so difficult.
There is a new camera coming out and from what I can tell, it combines different types of photography into one. It takes the ease of photo sharing that is mobile photography, as well as the filters and the instant appeal of the polaroid, and puts them together into one camera. The price has not been released but the website said it is being priced for everyone. Below are some of the features that it will have for sure. To view the website click here. Wonder if I will be adding this to my wish list?
Socialmatic™ will have:
14Mpx Frontal Camera
2Mpx Rear Camera LED Flash
4GB Internal Storage
Stereo Speakers GPS, WiFi and Bluetooth
Frontal LCD with Mood Assistant A.I.
Socialmatic Instant Filters
Zink Instant Printer
Remote Printing Capabilities
SD-HDC for External Storage
Socialmatic Network Compliant
Detailed specification will be released in the next months.
This is so true. Dove is on a roll! I would be interested in seeing this with the men describing the women, as it always amazes me how much more critical we are about women, than men are.
An hour spent with a friend at a bookstore = an hour well spent.
finished looking at a magazine,
saw this lady on the back,
held it up,
awkward, very awkward,
|love those shoes|
|So I didn't want to bug Tanya for a picture, who was deeply interested in her magazines. So I found this illustration instead. It really does look like her, so this is her stand in.|
I am loving my iPod. I have had some downtime with my other cameras, and I'm not sure why. My husband bought me an iPod as soon as they upgraded the camera, finally ( I was watching, hoping, waiting). It has encouraged me to get busy again, and discover a new art form as well. I am taking a self portrait workshop in which I have only used my iPod, as well as for my 365 project. I have to say it has also done wonders for me, as waiting is not my strong suit. Now I always have picture to edit, and apps to explore, so wait on.........
I took these with the intention of posting them in color, but I am often drawn to monochrome instead. So as you can see the monochrome won.
no sugar added
Some one from my flickr group shared this, and it just made me weepy. I love this stuff! I have seen different variations, including taking a self portrait of yourself everyday for a year, or one picture of yourself every year to see how you change. And boy does his message at the end hit home. Get yourself in the picture, and be part of the memory! Bravo.
These were taken for a workshop I am participating in called Now YOU. You can read more about it here. I can't believe I am sharing these, so I am going to do this quickly, then hit publish and let the anxiety begin. I didn't process these in monochrome, but for this blog post, I thought it tied them together well and actually I really like the results. Notice I really was avoiding looking at the camera, and if I had to, well it was going to be
silly, or illusive. All photos were taken with my ipod, and processed with it as well. Ok, so I am really going to do this, I'm serious, no turning back. Ok, here I go........on your marks, get set......ok, one, two, three........... and, hmmmm, seriously why, I mean, what am I...........hhhhhhh. Who really cares. and post.
My last post was about the inspiration I drew from Vivian Maier. Here are some favorite shots I took.

|True life mimicking art. Notice Garfield.|
|The plan, visit the old west, go to global market.....|
|Doesn't that defeat the purpose?|
|I won't lie, I love taking window shots, but you feel a little creepy.|
