a lifetime of social distancing

a lifetime of social distancing by Miguel de Ozarko

I was riding a streetcar in Kansas City and saw this man waiting for a bus, strongly backlit so he was mostly in silhouette. Just a quick grab shot with little time to compose the image. It was titled, but I straightened it in Snapseed. The painterly effect is from IColorama. . .sometimes I use a light effect, and then go back and use the same effect a second time depending on if I want it to look more like a photo or a painting. I cleaned up some of the stray details in Photoshop.

A couple months ago no one had heard the phrase “social distancing,” but something about the man struck me that he seemed alone and forlorn and probably knew a lot about social distance. The poem doesn’t quite fit the image, but the sentiment does.

….and a poem from Miguel…

Exiles
Kneel deep in the stream
to hunt crawdads
where honey brown water
glissandos
over pebbles
and sunlight
trickles through maple branches
like syrup. What light!
How I wish to sponge it
onto a brush as a painter.
A crab: pinchers, antenna, legs,
two black prong eyes,
its sudden exile into air,
blind and upended by some inscrutable force,
so unlike the white butterfly
which flickers past with its cargo
of nectars. Where do
the thousand fluttering leaves
of remorse settle? And who,
if not these sparrows,
will chide us for transgressing?
This moment seems chilled by a cloud.
Let us poke the squirming fellow
with a stick to see if he will pinch it
and hold on
for dear life.

–Miguel deO

Lonely....

Lonely by Sherrianne100

Apps used: Snapseed, Distressed FX.
Backstory: One of my favorite pastimes is driving the backroads of the Missouri Ozarks, hoping to find scenes that represent this region of the country. Much of this area is rural, and I am always fascinated by the barns and farmhouses that I see along the way. I’m from a big city originally, but always wished that I could have lived in a small town or better yet, a farm. This scene called out to me for many reasons. Right now, we are living a life that is often lonely. We are separated from our loved ones, unable to see our friends except through images on a screen. So while I loved seeing an old barn and a tree on a hill, with the beautiful sky as a backdrop, it also seemed to portray the isolation and loneliness that we may be feeling.. But there is a ray of hope shining through! We won’t be lonely forever…

urge


urge by robfaberstills (Rob Faber)

Apps used & Backstory: At the time, my father was in hospital.
On my way home I always watched the sparrows do their dusk routine.
I love to see the flocks fly in sync and it’s hard to stop taking pictures.
Eventually, going for a b&w image, there were 2 conversions that stood out.
I treated both in Fotor Free and happened to choose this one for my upload.

Twigs, Stems, and Vines

Twigs, Stems, & Vines photo info by Kristie Michele Art

Apps used: I shot this image with my native iPhone 8plus camera, converted it to black and white within the photo editing features of the iPhone. I then took it into Lightroom Mobile to tweak the contrast, highlights, whites/blacks, clarity, and texture. I really wanted to make sure the rope indentations popped, as well as the trees themselves.

Backstory:
I spent the day on the river, taking photos and doing rope. My aim for this image was to make my legs look like they were in sync with the trees, so while laying on the ground, I pointed my legs to sky and snapped away!
This is just one of over 200 images I have, from a series I’ve created over the last 9 years, with my legs.

Rose&bellflowers

Rose&bellflowers, May 9, 2020 by Mireille L.

ENLIGHTNINGMENT

ENLIGHTNINGMENT by aka Man

Apps used: Part of my process is choosing a photo for a certain app and seeing what happens with no real direction in mind, which is how this vision came about. Apps used: I’m all for ease and simplicity as in this case only two apps was used, a new one for me……..Skylab.i cropped the original pic to less wire fencing and more sky. Nine additional layers were added:lightning, 2 birds in the sky, birds on lines. flock of birds, 2 trees, cat and human silhouette.Additional editing and framing in my old faithful Snapseed. The final result turns out to be a personal statement of my pleasure in weather watching, the fence and it’s barbed wire a reminder of the dangers of ones pleasure and staying safe. On that note, be safe you all.
