This is a post from my “Just Three” Challenge, a 28-day photography project to capture a series of three-photo-story sequences — to tell a brief narrative using just three pictures taken that day. Each day from February 22nd through March 21st I’ll be posting a three-panel photo collection that makes use of one of the six styles of story-telling transition.
There is at least one of my co-workers who has an enviable sense of style. Her cubicle is filled to bursting with hipster art and eclectic objects, including a long walk covered with old slides.
Day 11: Slide Shows
Camera: iPhone 5S
Subject: Cubicle Art
Post-Processing: Just resized for the web.
Story: As the story goes this aforementioned co-worker of mine used to work in New York in an office tower near an estate auction house. One day she was walking by and there was a big box of old slides in a garbage pile, presumably because the family –if any– had been more interested in things with actual monetary value than years worth of travel memories. She nabbed them and has used them over the years as decorations in her work-space. Now they hang in the narrow windows in her cubicle, a wall I walk by every day and often wonder about the history encapsulated by all those little pictures.
Technique: Nothing interesting: just a few snapshots with my phone at different “manual zoom” ranges (y’know, moving my arm closer to the subject.)
Evaluation: Cool, but not nearly as cool as seeing the original. So. Much. Meta.
