For this weeks photo challenge, I took a picture of my shoes running away from me and wine bottles. I decided to take the pictures of wine bottles because to certain people that is the way they escape from the world. Another good example is cigarettes or money. I also decided to a pictures of my shoes “running away” because I love my shoes or any type of shoes and I would hate to see them go away. I also thought it was really funny because I’m giving my shoes human characteristics and pretending that I was actually “running away”.
I have read your book called “Steal Like an Artist,” and it has inspired me to think differently about art. Art is a form of expressing yourself and a way to communicate to other people in a creative way. I used to think that art was a hundred percent original, but after I read the first chapter my perspective has changed. Now every time I go to a museum I notice that a lot of the pieces are very similar. My artistic eyes have not only changed but have also developed, because now I notice more things that other people would not see, such as little details that would make a good photograph.
One of the quotes that have given me ideas is “We travel because we need to, because distance and difference are the secret tonic of creativity. When we get home, home is still the same. But something in our mind has been changed, and that changes everything.” What this quote means to me is that every time we travel, we see something different even though we come home to the same place. It is kind of like me going to Downtown Miami after school everyday and seeing something different. Even though the location is the same, everyday something new happens, whether it’s a robbery, a marathon, or a bike race. This quote is very motivational; it has provoked me to travel more and find the different things in everyday life.
I also listened to your advice about the swipe file. I find it very useful for everyday life because it is easy to carry around and it gives me an opportunity to write down everything I find inspirational. I also think that the log book was very useful as well as the X chain calendar. I found the log book useful because it helps me remember the things I did that certain day and it is useful because on somedays I forget everything in the past. Overall, this book is very useful to me and my artistic skills because it helps me notice things other people wont see. I would recommend this book to anyone who would like to develop the way they think of themselves as an artist.
For this weeks photo challenge I decided to go with a common tradition of graduating. I did this one because I thought I caught a good opportunity of what every individual should experience. I think this picture really represents culture because it is something that has been experienced in my entire family and in other peoples family as well so a lot of people can experience this feeling. I enjoy this photo a lot because it also shows how somebody else sees this picture from the audience. I give credit to Florida Atlantic University for graduating my mom, Thank you.
for this weeks photo challenge I decided to go back to the times and remember what it was like to see anything with my head up. I decided to take all my pictures through a child’s perspective which brought back a lot of fun memories. After my picture I had a lot of ideas for things me and my sister can do which in my day I thought was fun. I had a good time taking these pictures and I enjoy this one especially because it brought back a lot of good ideas and a lot of good memories.
For this weeks photo challenge I decided to do another version of the word “change”. I decided to go with the literal term as in, I have a dollar in change or Do you have any change? Other people went to a more spiritual term as in, a change over time but, in order to do that I would have to take a sequence of pictures of one item over time. It would be really hard to do that it is almost like taking pictures of a sunflower changing postions, it takes for ever! It is a simple word that has several definitions.
This weekly photo challenge was color although it fairly easy I decided to go with one color which is my birthstone color, green. I love green, especially lime green, this color reminds of so many things that I have good experiences. Other colors that I like are blue and purple but, if I look at a rainbow the colors which pop out to me the most is the green. It is such a bright color, if I had green in my picture I would have to make sure te other elements would balance it out evenly if not the picture would not look great. “The world is made on color, without color we would not have art, without art we would not have artists, without artists we would be dull clones of ourselves, we might look different on the outside but, in the inside we are magnificent clever humans capable of making a inspirational light shine with no light at all” Isabella Bru (me)
