Up, Down, In Between—Bringing it Back

 

 

 

When I first started this blog, I wrote a post about a photo project I did when I visited Portugal and forgot my camera at home. I’ve decided to reembark on this little photo journey of mine and share certain experiences and moments in my life in this format. To recap: I take a picture of something directly above me, directly in front of me, directly below me, and then put the photos together in a triptych. I find the result to be immersive and complete. I’m starting to realize that I’m big into immersive type environments. I like being pulled into a piece of work, not just stare from a distance.

The two triptychs are from my weekend. The first is a wedding I attended. The sky looks ominous but the rain held off through the ceremonies. The second is when Nick and I went bowling in the middle of the two wedding ceremonies. I didn’t have socks, so they gave me these dorky (awesome) socks with bowling balls on them. Nick bowled in a suit and still had a score 3x mine.

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!

    I really love this concept. It’s so easy to forget to look up and down (and even behind us). I love seeing commonplace events from different angles. More please!

      Thanks Archana! Ohh… I like the behind idea. A new series called front and back, perhaps?

    This is such a neat series! I love diptychs and triptychs myself, but incorporating them in an up down and in-between format is awesome!

    I was at an Indian wedding this past weekend too-it was lovely, however, we just hung out in our room in between the events. Bowling sounds like such a better way to pass the time! :)

      Thanks Tana! Yea, I’ve always been drawn to diptychs and triptychs as well, there is so much opportunity to convey more than a single photo can. Ah, the bowling was mainly a result of bad planning (no hotel, hours to kill) but it worked out!
