|Dancing on a Dime|
- What am I grateful for?
- What am I excited about?
- What do I want to create today?
I am grateful to have the time to go through this process of exploring my creative life and immensely grateful to even have a creative life. It isn’t where I started out in life and I’m the last person who would have ever thought I would have one.
I am excited about all the new techniques I’m learning and for being forced to try new things, even when I don’t want to. Like today. Challenge #9 insists that we search Flickr for images that are opposition to each other. I never use other people’s images so this is not something I’m looking forward to. However, it has occurred to me that, by looking at other people’s photos, I am expanding my own perspective. I will probably find this a useful exercise.
And, I am going to create an image of opposition somehow using the instructions given in Challenge #9.
Challenge #9 - Opposites In Conflict (w/ Flickr Images). MUST use Flickr creative commons images. Somehow the words, “Dancing on a Dime” dropped into my mind and I saw a ballerina. The first image that emerged was fun but looked like a commercial dance poster with no conflict or opposition. I was going to move on but it haunted me so a rework wound up with the image above. Not quite as postery but I was still compelled to keep on and wound up with this version. Who knows where this could go?
