I’m proud to say I’ll be part of the Historic West End Arts Fest later this month in my city, Winston-Salem, NC. On Sunday, Sep 27, 2015, I’ll be slinging surrealism from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. at this juried fine art and crafts festival featuring mainly North Carolina artists. Click through this excellent gallery featuring the beautiful work of others who will also be selling at this all-day event in a very cool location (with free parking & admission too):
I’m here several times a week. Neighborhood c-store. One night, the perfect photo op presented itself. Love it when that happens. Leading lines, lighting, lack of interference, and a moment to realize. Art is everywhere; we just have to notice it.
What do you think? Ever noticed beauty in ordinary surroundings? Do you see the world differently because of studying photos or another type of experience? Let us hear from you in the comments.
I dig the convergence of technology and time here in one brief second, now extended to the world and infinity. Here’s a snapshot of one of our modern photographic ancestors I modified with the amazing ToonPaint iPhone app, after shooting with Hipstamtic (a modern-retro simulator, no less). I found the camera at a sweet vintage shop called “Ideas” on Burke Street, Winston-Salem, NC. Original here.
What do you think? Do you see a connection between analog cameras and today’s mobile photography? What apps or camera discoveries have you made lately? Let us hear from you in the comments.
When an afternoon thunderstorm sends you into the right spot at the right time…
Mooney’s Mediterranean Cafe, Winston-Salem, NC. Click to see more like this on the Pinterest board of my iPhoneography.
Downtown on a Saturday just after the start of a thunderstorm was the perfect place for this quick snapshot of a peaceful moment, reflecting on the day so far and the future ahead, while anticipating Mooneys‘ excellent shawerma over hummus. In retrospect, I’m grateful for having the technology and inclination to document the moment. It was one of those simple times that’s easy to forget, but worthwhile to remember.
What do you think? Ever serendipitously documented a moment that you only realized later? Ever wish you’d done that? How do you think you might do that in the future? Let us hear from you in the comments!
Join the Pin Party!
A pin party is where bloggers get together and pin each other’s posts. This is my first time trying one, inspired by Sarah Dawn Designs.
Pin Party Rules:
