loosing. finding. the long red thread.
I try to edit my images as little as possible, and above all, enhance which ever quality initially catches my attention.
In this case the arcane, yet inert feeling of the scene was what I found attractive. Well, my whole stream could be museum images… This picture was taken with the phone native camera. Since the objects in the scene are so close, I blurred the image with the Magichour app, changing the saturation and contrast. Then went to Pixlromatic and used the alex filter. And went back to Magichour for some final adjustments in the light. And finally used the IG sierra filter, who is my best friend (how I survived before it existed, I surely don’t know). I am sorry I can not give numbers with this app. I often go back and forth between apps in an instinctual manner, and I have no set rule to go about it.
I became curious about the IG world around Januray 2012. It has been mostly about looking at art and exploring the world through others’ eyes. I don’t think I have a peculiar style or objects I document, it could be anything… but, I like to believe I tend to wrap myself in scenes that have a dazed or foggy quality to them, as when one is falling asleep or waking up from a pleasant dream. I like to invite others to finish constructing what they are looking at. Words are included in the posts, words instilled by the imagery (or vice versa).
But the best of it all, are the exchanges with wonderful people from around the globe, and all the beautiful things they inject into their little screens.
