Anyone who has been following my photography will know that I love any opportunity to experiment with abstract photos. So this week I was happy to represent May 26th, “Grey Day”. Dru offered this refreshing photo for May 30th, “Mint Julep Day.” Yum!
This week brought us April 29th, “National Zipper Day.” As I have a handbag made entirely out of a single zipper, that was an easy choice. Dru went with “National Star Wars Day”, otherwise known as “May the 4th Be With You.”
This week brought us “World Water Day” (March 22nd), which I commemorated with this photo: Dru went with March 21st, “National Fragrance Day.” Too bad this blog doesn’t have a “Scratch and Sniff” feature!
My friend Dru Axelsen and I have a new photo project going. You know how every day these days is a “National ________ Day”? Turns out, there are way more such days than I ever realized! Every week this year, Dru and I are each going to choose one such day that falls during that […]
I completely forgot to post the “Z” photos! I think I must have been in denial about the project coming to an end!! So, without further ado, here are “Zymurgy”: And “Zigzag”: I had so much fun with this project! Thanks again to Dru for suggesting it and doing it with […]
A very happy belated Thanksgiving to all of my friends in the US! With the holiday last week, I completely forgot to post the “X” photos from the Alphabet Project. Those of you who follow my Facebook page will already be familiar with my “Xerotic” (meaning “dry”) photo: And here’s my “Xanthic” (yellow): Here are […]
This week’s “U” words were “Urgent” and “Underground.” I did way more post-processing for my “Urgent” photo than I usually do–but it was fun, and I like how it turned out. Can you tell what the original image was? Dru went for humor with his “Urgent”: I went a bit […]
Wow–we are really cruising through the alphabet! I can’t believe we’re to “R” already. This week’s words were “Raspberry” and “Royalty.” I went abstract with “Raspberry”: Dru took a more disturbing route: That is a truly unsettling image, Dru! Our other word was “Royalty.” For the first time since “Jagged”, Dru and I actually had […]
I’ve been out of the country and got behind on posting these. So, without further ado, here are last week’s “N” photos–“Night” and “Neon.” Next up: “Onyx” and “Over”
Remember that hideously pink painting I posted a while ago? (If not, you can see it in all its pinkness here: http://karinkohlmeier.com/2013/08/pink-base-layer-for-my-next-multi-layer-painting/) Not that I have anything against the color pink per se…but seriously, wow–that was BRIGHT! A layer of Crackle Paste, a wash of paints, and a layer of Glass Bead Gel later, and […]
