A new close-up image for you all this weekend, enjoy! This week I’ve been busy continuing the latest mini photography project of ‘What do you see?’. I’ve also been creating hand-painted art, and a gift box idea with a twist! I’ll be doing an update post later on this weekend. If you would like to see more, I’m also on Facebook – http://www.facebook.com/rsjourneypieces and Twitter – @rsjourneypieces ! You can get in touch with me through this site, Facebook, Twitter, or e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org .
The Facebook page is all go, with lots more photo albums and images added, plus notes to help the ordering process. On here I’ve added a price page, as well as notes on the different types of image finishes to the ordering page.
No slowing down yet however, as the photography section is being revamped! This is to make it easier for everyone to view the images. So far there’s a completed page for just the rose themed images. Simply hoover over the photography tab to see this option.
Hope you are all having a great weekend, and for now whilst things are ticking and turning, here’s a new image –
What if everyone knew the reason behind that frown?
What if every insult was tattooed,
So that we could see what a sorry really doesn’t remove.
What if you had no one to talk to today?
Or you ignored the one person who needed you to help in your way?
What if we talked about brains and not brawn,
Words instead of fashion sizes?
Introducing my latest photography project, ‘What do you see?’.
Inspired by how we, the media, magazines, articles, even online talk about ourselves, others and celebrities. The words that are used to define someone. Rather than intelligence, brains, words, actions, we are still being described by physical attributes and the fashions we wear.
Our sizes, looks, clothes, weight, used every day, all over the world to generate articles, photographs, discussions. What is good for the goose, is not good for the gander. Where one person will be complimented for their great weight loss one day, the same place could also write a negative article about too much weight loss to another person. It only takes a flick through what should be the news sections of the internet to see this happening. Yesterday I did a flick through the first page of one news start page, and found ‘gym-toned’, ‘wrong clothes’, ‘cosmetic surgery addiction’, ‘incredible bikini body’, ‘vision of beauty’, ‘extremely thin’. All of these being used as parts of titles, defining that person within one sentence.
I’ll be working through this project with all of the above in mind, hoping to create a reaction to what is now seen as an every day, normal part of our life. Professionally printed photographic prints of the images from this project will be available to order. At the end of the project, any models will also be available to buy. Your support for the project will also help others, keep your eyes peeled, as I will explain all later into the project.
For now, here’s the first sneak image from the project that was shared with the Facebook page last night –

Anyone else left with that ‘Where did the weekend go?’ feeling? If so, you’re not alone, as it seems to have flown by too quickly here!
This weekend I have been working on a unicorn design hand drawn with pencils and pens. Here’s the result –

I’ve also been busy with product photography for another independent business, Bespoke Fantasy Costumes this week. New photos have been completed for their latest range of 3D printed items, including fishing snag ears. A couple more edits still to go to show off the full range.
Back to the unicorns, and in the theme of the latest art work, here’s a throw back to other unicorn images I’ve also completed –

Life is a journey. A journey made up of several experiences, steps and pieces along the way, not one. Each piece is as important as the last and the next, each one tells a story, to express, to give, to keep. Creating art, photography, crafty gifts with poetry and ramblings along the way!
