This Flickr overview (also on Facebook) includes a pre-project image I used for the "cover" -- the great shoes I bought for Monica and Jason's wedding! Looking at these images, I'm at a loss for anything resembling a theme, other than the relative lack of photos of people (other than family members shooting pool). I am trying to "see" ordinary objects in a different way; I think that is coming through, a little bit. And I'm trying to consciously change perspective; I'm not convinced that is coming through, yet. But I'm loving the iPhone camera and the cool apps for playing with photos in post-production! :: WiredPen permalink : Follow Me On Twitter!continue reading →
