photo heart connection november
recycling photos to create new works of art
my creative adventures in iphoneography have been continuing this past month, intensifying during a short stay at the hospital, where i produced a series of digital collages (i organised them in a set on my flickr page)
i am linking this blog post to Kristen Radden's december creative iphoneography challenge as well as Kat Sloma's november photo heart connection.
on november 14th i went to the seaside with my dad and shot this steel rocking horse with my iPhone. i later used several apps to turn it into a golden stead fit for a fairy tale. i just loved that horse….. so i used miracam's x-ray filter to create another shiny version of it and then cut it off of its pedestal and out of its frame….. wanting to use it as a symbol in some of my collages. i even gave it a name and called it Silverado :-)) for me it served as a kind of magical power horse that would rescue me from all the fear and hurt associated with my surgery.
|never in my wildest dreams|
|yearning for salvation|
|speed of light|
|bridging the gap|
|dreaming of horses|
these six images were created in the ten days just before, during and after my stay in the hospital. looking at them now, i can still feel the horse's (and my creative spirit's) incredible magical healing power…….
