You're going to have to explain this one!
Culpa; Latin for culpable, guilty, blame or bad (as in, Mea culpa, Mea maxima culpa).
Small groups or clans standing within undefined perimeters. Kind of a lost, or damned souls thing.
Was trying to get a somewhat Holga-esqe look. I did want it to look over-processed, but went an eensy-overboard, but can fix that some other time.
Interesting - I'm not sure that I like the image from a personal viewpoint, but now that I understand it, I'd have to say you did a good job of it.
I think it does a good job of giving you some reason to keep looking as you think just like the other image. Although, I think the other image did a better job of portraying your intended emotion. I am feeling more of a discriminatory group feeling where nobody likes anyone else than a guilty feeling. I dont get see them as being lost.
I know the effect was intentional, but to be honest I just see an out of focus image. Hate to sound so harsh! Maybe the effect would work better in a gallery of similar work...
I think more than lost, out of control. Being forced.
My stuff isn't for everyone, especially the B&W work I produce. For a likewise collection, click on my user id, threads started by, and check out the threads in the B&W gallery. I'm working on an online gallery, but that could be ages.
An excerpt from:
Geschöpf der Flut / Gedicht der Muscheln, 1899
We are alone in the dark. You up there have lips, rolled-up leaves, hands entwined with rosy blood and bluish veins, we are alone and cannot touch. ...
i liked it before having read the explanation.
Thanks. I found the poem as an afterthought. I prefer doing it the other way around, but I thought it puts an adequate feel to the shot- If some require words as a necessity.
now that is a shot that i dig. no need for explanation.
not your standard type of shot that im used to seeing from you
and i really like it.
Thank you. This stuff is a great diversion from my diversion from work, which has become a distraction from my diversions. If I could get any more relaxed I wouldn't have any bones. Hm, I bet that would make an interesting self portrait! :shock:
