It's Been A Wonderful Year

Posted Dec 2014

Oh. Quick. Quick. Before I get out to tonight's New Year's Eve event. One last post for the year.

It's been such a Wonderful Year. So many People. So many Pictures. And my New Computer! I feel like this is the first post for which I had to bring in my Pictures on the new Computer. It' so sensitive. A learning curve just when I'm trying to put up these pictures before I run out.

Here are the last few pictures that I will get posted for the year 2014. So many pictures that I didn't get a chance to show you yet. It's been such a Whunderfull Whunderfull Whirlwind. Thank You All ~

Reinventing the Wheel

Posted Dec 2014

Hmmm ~ Decisions. I give it my full attention. I really jump in. Get into the Zone. What to do ~ A Close-Up of 'Ring' with a hint of faces? A Full-Body Pose of the Traditional Proposal Pose? A Larger Scene showing the Setting where the Proposal took place?

In this case, I was reinventing the wheel while I designed a Proposal Caricature to include references to the Park where the Proposal was to take place. But then I honed in on just the Traditional Proposal Caricature afterall. Following my Client's instructions.

Here are pictures of the Park where my Client chose to Propose to his Lady:

Here are the scribbled LayOuts that I designed to set the Proposal in this particular Park:

Here is the final Picture in which I got rid of the 'World', and just focused in on the People:

Visual Music

My pictures:

and this one includes an unusual picture too. Since I was encouraged to do whatever I wanted, the top picture shows the way I was impressed by the whole scene.

When I looked out over the whole room, the backs of the chairs created a pleasing pattern for me ~ sort of like musical notes. I tried to capture that in a picture. I really like geometric patterns.
