Painterly Photos

Having discovered Pixo, which allows the bored photographer to paint quickly on the dullest image, I can see a summer of great contentment ahead.

Normally, digital filters give a painterly effect.

Sympathic Images

Thanks to a contact with photographers who use narrative in curating their work, I have set out to make little stories with images gathered over time.

This does not come easily, as it calls for a thread that is visible, not just a mental construct imposed by the will.

The Fiveprime system is useful for placing work on a black background and making a screenshot that can be presented as a single image.

Having allowed Fiveprime access to one's Flickr account, just tag photos with a word that is particular to the theme chosen. Here, in order to bring six garden photos together, each was tagged with "analogue" and "moderntwist2".

The odd men out, the footballers, were not included in the final screenshot.
