We have a second entry this week in Dutch goes the Photo!’s Tuesday Photo Challenge – Groceries. It is a photo of a roadside market we drove by on the road from Mysore to Coorg in India this spring. We saw it two months before visiting the subject of our previous post, the Marché Bastille in Paris, France. This was one of dozens we passed on the way. The similarities and differences between the Indian and Parisian markets fascinated us. Everyone gets their groceries somewhere.

We are continuing our class in Photoshop at a local college and are continuing our use of photomontage to learn the features of the program.
The following image, entitled “Waiting for the science to be in…”, is a composite of open source photos (found via Google Image search) and one photo scanned (a requirement of the assignment) from a beach magazine called “LocalLife”. As before, the general theme is being oblivious to dramatic changes in our climate.
Waiting for the science to be in…
We are taking a digital imaging class to learn Photoshop. This week’s homework is a photomontage. This is similar to collages we made in art class except for the glue all over everything.
The following image, entitled “After the Glaciers”, is a composite of photos we took at the beach and one image (the golfer) obtained from Google images. The lightning was created using a brush downloaded from Brusheasy. This is a first attempt and we hope to improve over the semester.

This is a picture we made last fall for a class on studio lighting. We don’t have battery powered lights, so the lighting setup was powered by extension cords and placed just to the left of the image. The apples were suspended using “invisible” threads. The idea for the photo was inspired by the work of Magritte.
This is our entry in Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #62: SilhouettesLens-Artists Photo Challenge #62: Silhouettes.
In April we attended the Van Gogh Starry Night exhibit at the ATELIER DES LUMIÈRES PARIS. Viewers are immersed in moving images taken from Van Gogh’s works. Here is the silhouette of a tall man walking in front of “Self-Portrait” (1889) as the projected image moves on the wall. Van Gogh appears to be exchanging glances with the man as they pass each other.

We were in Ocean City, Maryland, to celebrate the life of the son of dear friends. Afterwards, we drove five minutes from our hotel to the boardwalk on the Atlantic Ocean. Here are a few of the pictures we took as we walked the boardwalk.
