It is #twosday and I am joining in with Cee’s Black and White Photo challenge (here) because this week the theme is: “two of anything” –
Here is my take:
We try not to drink Keurig pods (because we want less exposure to plastics) but earlier this year we had this delicious “Culture Blend” – and what a great name for a coffee blend. Sweet and vibrant and smooth – just like culture – right?
Now for my last photo -from an art show a while back:
Two females. One in the painting – young – athletic – with her dancer posture that is overly perfect – and in toe shoes. In contrast, we have the older lady walking, the viewer and a real person and not in a painting – ha – and she has on flip-flops – casual posture, etc. I like the way they both have arms/shoulders exposed and the mood of this photo is enriched from the lady’s shadow and the six paintings right. What do you think?
Nathan Knobler Quote from the Visual Dialogue:
“In the relatively short period from the middle of the nineteenth century to the first two decades of the twentieth century there arose in succession the impressionists, the pointillists, the Fauves, the cubists, the futurists, and others – groups of artists all attempting to find an adequate equivalent for the communication of the world they perceived about them. Each group found it necessary to construct a visual vocabulary and grammar, which differed from those available to them. In their own time the equivalents produced by these painters and sculptors were, quite naturally, compared to the traditional standard, the perspective image, and found wanting. The differences in application of paint, in the use of color, in the representation of form and space were frequently attributed by the critics to inadequate ability or arbitrary idiosyncrasies, sometimes even to madness.
The presort day viewer of art can no longer assume that the photographic image is a standard by which other images are to be judged, a language acting acting as other measures of communication systems, for he finds himself in a multilingual visual world, a world in which all languages have a value measured by their ability to communicate a significant image of some portion of human experience.”
