Man and nature conspire to create collages making use of these old buildings in the pueblo just below my house. I am mystified about what the other end of the noose seen in the first photo is attached to. I had to include the paint-splattered paving stones from Ajijic as well as it suited the theme.
Be it a mariachi’s guitar or a detail of my friend Larry’s guitar, I love the artistry of musical instruments. Then, I couldn’t resist adding photos of one of the guitars whose artistry I attempted to augment.
Please click on the first photo below to enlarge all photos and view as a slideshow.
Here are two more of my “painterly” edits of photos. I wish I could paint this well. I believe the first is a detail, with some editing, cropping and deletions, of a night shot of the sky with an overhanging roofline. The second is an edited detail of a blue heron in flight taken at Sea Ranch, California. Only the “Photos” editing software that came with my Mac was used.
For the next few Odd Ball Challenges, I’m going to submit photos that I consider to be painterly. You may not be able to figure out what it is, but I think it works as a composition. I accept all guesses.
I wish I could take credit for this picture, but I don’t have the least idea how it happened! I was using a digital camera, so it can’t be a double exposure–can it? At any rate, we were in Guadalajara having a wonderful time shopping near the Libertad Market. We were having fun trying on these wild watches, and then I saw this girl trying on glasses and thought it would make a good shot. Little did I know. Life loves an oddball, I guess!!!
