Quirky Selfie for Photo Art Friday April 2014


Life's often a puzzler...

This is a photo I took in San Jose in April of 2009.

It was fun how it had my name + my last initial, so I played.

Now, 5 years hence, I found it makes for an excellent "selfie" launch pad.

[And it's "quirky" too.]

And, after a week in hospital and Now one recuperating, this was right up my digital fiddling capabilities alley for this month's Photo Art Friday.

I played with the photo one time:


Having explored overlaying some of the quotes I found in a nearby folder in my photo stash:



Since both seemed to signify new ways I am BEing Currie since 2009...

Then I tried some digital fiddling with some different layering over:


BUT... it was NOT so "different" so I decided to crop the CURRIES bit to make it stand out just a bit more. 

All the values seemed to BE running into each other and same with my brain making creative connections!!!



About this point I was wondering if this even makes any sense, so...

I stopped.

Looking forward to "meeting" others "quirky face-to-quirky face" tomorrow!!

First I'm sorry to hear you've been in the hospital. I hope everything is okay & you are on the mend.
Next I like what you came up with very much. It's always fun to find our names in places like that. I think your very end result is really great. Well done my friend.

I almost always look for your submission first to see what quirkiness you bring to the gallery each month. I think that when one creates a piece that is congruent with who they are there is a magical quality that draws the viewer right in. You consistently do that. Praying that you are speedily well, Currie, and sending warm thoughts your way.

Wonderful piece of art! I love that you are showing us your process of creation, too. The result is beautiful.
Hopefully not too much longer to recuperate for you, unless, of course, you can use the time to create some beautiful art :)
