making a mosaic
. . . . . . . .
so, after spending a lot of time looking at the baron wells website yesterday, i started thinking about pairing images next to one another. there is one image duo in particular that i love (if you are wondering, it’s #2 in the slideshow on their website – the pool and the girl in shorts). it’s really striking how you can put together two images that may not seem obviously complimentary at first, but then bam! next to each other, they are dynamite – and you see something in the images that you wouldn’t have seen otherwise. it’s a well-curated selection.
sometimes, i snap photos that i know are “stand-alones” – a photo that really carries its own weight by itself, and the impact of this photo would be lessened if i combined it with others. and then other times, i have a bunch of photos that really tell a story, or evoke a feeling when put together as a group. i love how these images can work together to create something more.
am i making any sense here? it is possible that i’m still jet-lagged. anyway, i started experimenting last night and made a little mosaic of a bunch of images i found on my computer. i played around with it and i decided to post the result today just for fun. these photos, as a group, give me a feeling and an impression that i wouldn’t get from looking at each individual image.
alright, enough heavy thinking for the day. tomorrow is friday and i can’t wait. see you back here then.
