I see things.
Well, not bad things, I see things that make my heart stir. It’s not like a scary movie. I call it Capture and Create. I’m doing a lunch time lecture in Houston called “You must plant seeds today for a harvest later”
These are the things I will be sharing, plant the seeds and harvest them later.
This is part of a bridge at Burj Khalifa Dubai. I love the turquoise background of the water and the reflections showing through… Then of course the pattern is super and the way the light plays on the image outlining the star and the pattern of the grid.
I’ve played with the color and to be honest, I don’t ‘do’ purples, but this layout gives me some interesting visual ideas. The images are put into a folder on my computer and sometimes they get used and at other times they just stay there to admire. I often go back over them many years later and pluck one out to experiment with. You know my ideas are changing all the time, experimentation with thread, ink and fabric makes new things possible.
This image is in a shop window. I loved it… and the reflection of the blue light over the head of the model made me smile.
I played with the overall design, the top image was changed in an application on my computer called. Smart photo editor, and the image below on paper is my favorite. I could use this to stitch the black image on fabric.
Yep, I’m a little strange, this is what I see as I walk around… sometimes I feel sorry for people who accompany me, but.. my Husband Keith is used to it. I guess you could say I live in a world of creative expression and as I travel I share it with my travel companions and they can choose to accept or reject the ideas. The tours that I lead are just a little different to the ‘hop on hop off the bus’ type of tours.
I’m not too sure what to do with this but I did save it. You know a lot of folk ask me how do you take photos through shop windows? To be honest, I get really excited at the reflections that add another dimension to the image. Keith just walks away from me when I start turning my head and try to capture images in my mind before I photo graph the window. !!!!
How utterly amazing is this?
Angles and capturing the moment is great. This photo tells a story. Not just the colors, but the images of the men, 6 cell phones, 6 different interactive body poses.
Sunset over Dubai. I changed the image into a water color that could be printed on fabric you know in spoon flower or even another textile printing program. Or you could do layers of color in sheer fabrics. I’ve been working with sheer cottons from Nepal and this would look amazing using that technique. Oh, I used ‘waterlogue’ on my ipad for this image.
This is an image of the desert sky, and I changed it in the app Waterlogue and I left the description on the bottom of the image to give you an idea of how it was achieved.
This is also an image of the water and the hose lines at the Burj Khalifa and I changed it in “Sketchmee2” in my ipad.
