pallets in red and blue

 

FYI- this will be my last post for this month.  I’m taking off the rest of September.   God willing, I will see you all in October 2020.  Peace Out.

Got a problem?   Too Bad, “Na Na Na Na Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Goodbye!” 😉

It’s time to fly this acid world, retool and re-energize.

Cage The Inferno

This severe abstraction is closer to what I normally like to create.   Again the base shot (bottom image) was a detail from the same steam engine as yesterday  – where the engine boiler meets the cabin where the engineer hangs out.

Flip The Script

Today I’m starting a new series of posts.   This series does not have a name – it’s just the way I’m going to post.    I’m going to show the final image which features heavy manipulation.   And then below that I’m going to show the original image so you have some idea of what I start with and the extremes I can end up.   Todays final image is mild by my standards but I really like and found that the more I “messed with it” the less I liked it.    The bottom image is a detail from a steam locomotive that’s been “rotting” on display in downtown Akron.   I like visiting it from time-to-time just to see if something strikes my fancy.

A brand new image.
CORONA VIRUS 2020

If this Corona Virus will teach us anything – it is that when it comes to human experience – the best of all possible futures is a dystopia for the majority and a utopia for the minority of survivors. That said, I prefer to think of the future as not written in stone. I like Bob Marley’s sound advice
“…don’t worry about a thing, ’cause everything’s gonna be alright”

and Michael Franti – don’t panic – Stay Human – spend less time looking suspiciously at each other and more time looking out FOR each other.

Favorite Quotes by Marshall McLuhan:

“The Medium Is the Message”

“Advertising is an environmental striptease for a world of abundance.”

“Art at its most significant is a Distant Early Warning System that can always be relied on to tell the old culture what is happening to it.”

“Today the Tyrant rules not by club or fist, but disguised as a market researcher, he shepherds his flocks in the ways of utility and comfort.”
