photoblog image A Stone and a Shell Times Sixteen

A Stone and a Shell Times Sixteen

 

On 29 March I initiated an art project. I picked up a smooth blackish stone and a shell fragment from a shelf and took them outside, along with my camera.

 

At various points within a quarter-mile radius, I dropped or placed these two objects on various backgrounds. If you look carefully you will see that I chipped off a piece of the shell fragment, leaving a pure white indentation.

 

After a moment of regret, I decided this was an essential part of the concept. I took 16 shots. After working on land, I switched to an aquatic environment for number 16.

 

I went left to right, top to bottom, in the same order I took the pictures. Strict adherence to this format meant the last picture was actually placed as a small image on the bottom row, next to the large one of the shell on the post.

 

To compensate, I am repeating photo 16 below.

You are giving these pieces of stone and shell the times of their lives Larry. This is a modern concept on the theme of a lifetime holiday for two, no expenses spared

You are approaching super-stature in terms of putting things together
Larry Bliss: But most of all... I'm having a lot of fun!
You have a very creative mind Larry

A fin study, Larry. I must admit to not having such creative mind as to do something like this.
Larry Bliss: I stole the idea from a guy who took a chair around the world and photographed it against exotic backdrops.

What an great idea for a project. It is interesting to see how different the shell looks on each background.
Larry Bliss: The idea is not original. One guy photographed an armchair against backgrounds around the world.
I have two favorites in this whole and the one you picked to enlarge is very nice too.
Larry Bliss: I had a whale of a time making it. Can I say "whale of a time" without offending PETA? smile
