pics : brooklyn diptychs {1}


Yellow Love

Hi Everyone -

I think inspiration often gets stored in the deep recesses of our mind. We all look at a lot of content - some we like, some we don't. We take it in and move on. It becomes a component of who we are even though we might not give it a second thought.


Economic Ills

I had no plan to create diptychs when I started taking these photos in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, but I knew I wanted to capture some of the grit of the city. My Mom used to give me a hard time because I always do things with flowers and I am aware that it can get tedious.


Bicycle-writer

So, after taking the photo of the yellow ranunculus, I saw the yellow love tire, and I got the idea for a diptych. Before I knew it I saw potential pairings all over the place. It was pretty neat. When I was putting these together I thought of the Noticing Project by Heather & Alicia and I'm sure it had something to do with it. Their concept of 'noticing'.


Light Bouquet

I just hope I'm not the only one who thinks they go together ;). More to come next week.

Hello my fabulously talented friend! I had to laugh when I read your comment. I NEVER go by the name Candace, and especially not my middle name, Rose. It reminds me of my internships at tv stations when the reporters would tell me, you are not going to be taken seriously going by Candi, you have to go by Candace. I should name my blog, Call me Candi or else :)

love the diptychs! going from what you said in your first paragraph, and a play on words as well, you could call these diptychs "inspiration from second thoughts". very cool pairings!

I would kill for that shirt. I'm pretty much the opposite of the kind of person who would wear that tee, so I think it would be perfect for me. With I really cute skirt. I'm looking for it online right now.

Those were real fun Cindy. It is fun to look at things side by side,that have things in common or not. It makes one use their imagination a bit more.
