I like to group things that sort of ‘feel’ the same way (my sister would  probably  call it Oh.Cee.Dee) I think we all do grouping to a certain degree so we can: create, build a memory, formulate meaning or somethin’– PSY 101 baby!  Unearthing some deep thoughts here… These are some  cell phone shots that I have grouped from the last couple of weeks. Note: Some real photographers are not too keen on these new instragramic/ photo-face-lift apps, and you might not care what I think, BUT IIIII, to a very basic level  find it phenomenal that people who never took photos before are capturing images and able to express themselves though them, right? Isn’t that the whole point…?  You are not gonna become Steve Mc Curry…

I’ve become momentarily fixated on collage-ing my photos by the help of diptic as you can see below. Thinking about it… I never really had a good art teacher in school.  But whenever I did have art class freestyle collages were always present. que bueno.

As the magazines, color papers, glue and scissors were on our desks as the teacher had asked, it didn’t take long before everybody started looking over each other’s shoulders. What to cut? What shapes and colors, big letters, small letters? faces, cute dogs? Of course there always a student that knew exactly what to do. not me. It took me for ever.

It is sort of strange and liberating to paste and cut again. You should try it.
