Here are some documentary type shots. Click for 700px version:
I liked to take 600 type photos apart and scratch into the emulsion. You can see an example of this here. I haven't done any this year :(. But I'm gearing up to do some. You can see my notes as to what to expect! My poor grandfather will probably be annoyed that I photographed his pool looking green. He's 91 but loves cleaning it and it is usually really sparkling clean. Sometimes we go swimming in it after we open our presents. But with everything that has happened with my grandmother, he's been really busy. It looks a lot nastier than it really was.
Gramma's stroke and the merry- go- round we've all ridden this holiday inspired me to reach into my Dada bag and quickly shoot off these photos as a response to all of this. The models are my husband (darker haired guy) and my brother (skinny guy.) The set is called Brothers-in-law Demonstrate Memento Mori. They'll be framed and hung together. I have a photo show coming up in March that I might include them in. Or I might use them in a mixed media piece with drawings of elephant skulls. I haven't decided yet.
