Angelina's Lament

Newer Older

After you’ve looked up and over, glanced inside and out, peered around and behind, when you have double counted, triple checked, reviewed your notes and even confirmed the color on your feet and you still can’t find them.

Please don’t worry…

Nothing is lost, misplaced or come undone. They have just found their place at the corner of obscurity and nowhere. A place where life is fluffy, warm and brightly lit at four in the morning, a place where there are no microphones, no video tapes, no shifty men standing around after dark in sunglasses and subdued ties.

A nirvana known and desired by renegade socks throughout the universe... A place where they can finally say to one another “Did I find you or you find me?”

A place called Adam’s Square Laundromat.

    Cool, all i needed to compose this shot was a tripod, shorts and a pair of flip-flops. And my power point was a ham and cheese sandwich packed in the side of my camera bag.

    I like ham and cheese sandwiches.

    Thanks Tortuga, yeah if you hang around long enough in this parking lot you will eventually see a pirate come in looking for a decent sock.

    OK: parallel verticle lines which create interest and tension against the converging horizontal lines, a power point is grounded in the "laundry" sign, great use of negative space to create a frame within a frame, and beautiful symmetry.

    *blink, blink* Yeah, the negative space creates a kind of depth effect, making the laundromat look kind of... well, I want to say 3D, but that doesn't sound right. It kinda tricks the eye, looks like a solid square-ish thing rather than the flat front of something.

    Beth, I think I need to take your class...

    I think that in any genre of art, *rules* should be viewed as optional tools, not ends in themselves.

    (Yeah I know, nobody asked me.)

  12. Zen Cat 116 months ago | reply

    Not just in art but life in general. Hell, I have broken more than my share of rules over the years and still have a few more to break.. but most I use as a flashlight in a big old dark, dank and dusty cave.
