Life of The clouds….A Tear And A Smile…

Image by -Reji
…………………………………………………………………………...Explored… Thanks All Buddies

The waters of the sea turn into vapor and rise and come
With each other and kind clouds.

And the cloud floats above the hills and valleys
Until it meets the gentle breeze, then falls weeping
To the fields and joins with brooks and rivers to Return to the sea, its home.

The life of clouds is a parting and a meeting.
A tear and a smile.

I would not exchange the sorrows of my heart
For the joys of the multitude.
And I would not have the tears that sadness tends to make
To flow from my each and every portion turn into laughter.

I would rather that I died in yearning and longing
Than that I reside Weary and despairing……

PRO84 Elliott Erwitt – Emulation Assignment October 09

To emulate the style of Elliott Erwitt, Born Paris 1928.
This will turn into clearer as you read further and as you study his operate. Nevertheless, at this moment, your activity is to uncover a human, tender, amusing or downright funny moment involving individuals or animals and to depict it in a way that we are seeing the moment – not the decisive moment – just the snapshot moment where two factors came together and the outcome was the unexpected – a tender human moment – or funny, but constantly real life and making us appreciate the ‘sense of the ridiculous’ all about us.
He makes use of juxtaposition of components not meant to be with each other, but when they are, we smile.

Of course his work was not constantly to make us smile or laugh, but I do feel that this is his most self-effacing asset. By means of his work, we are portion of the finish item and can share the ‘indecisive moment’ (as he himself puts it) with him. Elliott Erwitt was not above engineering these moments – in reality, he utilized to carry a noisy horn to spook dogs into jumping at the moment he took the photo.

But he also saw the prospective in a lot of scenarios. This is where your imagination comes into play. Do you see a Billboard which would be hilarious with (say) horses underneath it? Or even the child carrying a balloon, which looks like a substitute head at various angles? Or like a single of Elliott Erwitt’s classics, the woman sitting with a dog on her lap – and it is the dog we see for the top half of her physique.

WIT: I took my daughter and niece to the park to play so I could look for EE circumstances. I had no luck so I decided to use the youngsters for props. We walked along a trail and I had the girls act out every sign we came to. This was 1 of their best interpretations. For post processing I cropped the shot square and produced two b&ampw versions (1 to perform on the sky and trees, and yet another for the sign and girls) and overlayed them with some layer masking.

I really like Erwitt’s sense of irony and humor, it fits me properly. Even though there were no specific EE pictures that I utilized for inspiration, I am hoping my submission has his sense of juxtaposition and humor. It was quite frustrating not to be capable to find other/greater examples about town. I consider this is one of those things where if you appear too hard you wont be in a position to discover it. Just let it take place and hope you have your camera with you.

This it the 1st knife I have produced in over 5 years.

After my motor bike accident I couldn’t make knives for some years and then progressively lost the desire to make them.
Now I am back and inspired. This is the very first of a lot of.

About the knife. The blade material is an exotic stainless steel by Hitachi. It is a san mai (Sandwich) of ATS-34 on the outside and ZDP-189 on the inside.

Very first I ground and shaped the blade after which I engraved it with the God of Wind &quotFuJin&quot on the front and the God of Thunder &quotRaiJin&quot on the back.

Then the blade was heat treated to a RC 67 hardness for the inner steel. Next the blade was polished untill 60,000 grit diamond. Quite fine &quotMicro Mirror Polish.
Following that I inlaid 24k gold and heat coloured it.
Then black sting ray skin was attached and bound with silk.
The bolsters are made from Titanium Damascus (Timascus). The menuki (manage inserts) are produced of titanium and 18k gold and engraved with bonji (buddhist script) on the front.

Lastly I took this photo with a Nikon D700 and the superb Nikkor 85mm f/1.4G lens.
