Photo of the Day 8/1/18

A fellow blogger, Jose, over at stripSearchLA, sparked my imagination with his recent post of short fiction woven through elements of a worn textured wall. Visually speaking, the words flowed in and out of peeling paint and cracked stucco and that added a new dimension to the message contained in them.

It caused me to think about how to use photos, or blocks of color, to accentuate the message behind quotes.

I may add a new series for this genre and I’m trying to come up with a title. See It, Say It, comes to mind, but I think we can do better. If you have a idea for a title, please share it with me.

Nothing is carved in stone at this point.

    This is beautiful, Allan. Love the perspective, it seems infinite. The words, in terms of typeface and meaning, blend well with the image. I fully support your decision to make a new category for pictures that contain quotes 🙂 I can only imagine what a photographer of your creative caliber can accomplish marrying words and images. As for the title, I’ll give my noggin a joggin’ and see if I can help in any way. Thanks for the shout out; it is truly appreciated.

      Thanks, Jose. I hope that you get some new followers out of this post. Thanks for putting your noggin to work on a title for the new enterprise. I’m certain that all of us will be surprised at the eventual choice.

    I love this idea, Allan. It would make posting a quote with a photo even more fun. I’ll have to think about and maybe play with this a bit. I think I need a new theme for my blog, allowing me to show larger photos.

    If I think of a title, I’ll let you know. It seems as if there’s one hovering in my mind somewhere.

      Thanks, Janet. A name is swirling out there somewhere. I am interested in seeing what you do with your blog theme. There are a lot of them out there.

        We could crib from Rod Stewart: “Every picture tells a story.” Or my thought “Picture the words.” 🙂 I thought of another one while walking back from Aldi today, but for the life of me, I can’t remember what it was. 😦
