1000 Words Mobile Showcase Week 8
Big thanks for contributing to our Flickr group, 1000 Words. We hope to showcase the great diversity and beauty of the work shown to continue to inspire other mobile (connected) photographers/ artists within our community.
1000 Words is titled under the premise that “a photograph says a 1000 words.”
We Are Juxt believes that mobile photographers/ artists tell stories through the photographs/ images and art that represents their families, their environment, themselves. This is important because of the level of communication that is portrayed in imaging today.
We look forward to you and your art. We thank you for your contribution to the mobile photography/ arts community. To view the 1000 Words gallery go here and feel free to add your own images.
This week’s showcase was curated by group member Fabiano Grassi.

Juxt thanks you for your contributions!

This shot was taken close to Westminster in London. This gentlemen was standing alone minding his own business creating peoples names from strips of metal. Gifts most tourists buy but what caught my eye at first was not what he was making but the fact he was standing with his back to the wall, a blazer jacket on with a cowboy style hat just looking chilled. The moment I saw the subject I knew this was going to be a Black and White shot.

Cloud Walker by Edina Herold
The walking man was photographed a few months ago. I made the basic shot, because his posture expressed a basic human solitude. During the processing I wanted to intensify this basic human feeling, so I placed the protagonist into a surrealistic context. To do so I used 2-3 images to create this environment with Juxtaposer, which was further enhanced with Picfx to reach that dark tones.
I’ve loved you for 1000 years by Jennifer Bracewell
This is an image of my three year old little girl.
I took it at an art fair in Alameda, California a few weeks ago. I’d just bought her a fairy dress with wings and of course she had to put it right on. She looked so fluffy and pretty from the back. As I rode home and looked at the photos I’d taken that day this one struck me, really hard actually. I have a photo of my mother from about 1945 that’s nearly identical. I began working on this one, layering it with some lacy textures, adding a flower I had saved as a mask in Superpose, cropping it to look like the picture of my dear mom, what I had of it in my memory, and gave it a vintage look with some filters and blurring. I was thinking of the generations of women in my family..my tiny little great-grandma, my sweet six foot tall Swedish grandma, my lovely mom all floating in my head and my beautiful little fairy princess, my art loving baby girl. This didn’t take more than ten minutes. The title came from that pop song, I don’t know who sings it.. It came on the radio and gave me goosebumps. I’ve loved them all for thousands of years, and they me.

Once upon a time by Sacha Dohmen
The Shot was taken in Germany, near Cologne. When I saw the Asian woman lost in her thoughts, I’ve just been waiting to get the right background (the girl that sees what I plan and starring at me). Sometimes it is just a matter of a few seconds.
For the treatment of this one I used a lot of apps, Snapseed, Lo-Mob, Photocopier, PictureShow and SketchBook.
I want that one by Malcolm Ganderton
Once the London day trippers dream destination, Margate, the small seaside town on the Kent coast went into decline during the 70′s and 80′s with the introduction of cheap package holidays to Spain.
For the past 20 years the area has been used as a dumping ground for England’s massive influx of immigrants, every hotel and guest house was used to house the multinational refugees from eastern Europe and the middle east.
Today the town is in the shadows of its former glory days with high unemployment and a depressed local economy, all the big name stores have transferred to an out of town shopping centre leaving half the shops in the town empty adding to the down turn in the local prosperity.
There is a ray of hope for the once thriving Margate, gone are the “Kiss me quick” hats and saucy postcards and thanks to national and EU investment the town is slowly rebuilding and reinventing itself as a centre for the arts with galleries and trendy cafe’s opening in the old town area.
The people of Margate live in hope of a brighter future for everyone.
This picture is part of an ongoing social documentary project I am undertaking.
I want to find myself by the sea, in another’s company by Edi caves
This image is the first in a series I entitled the #DripSeries on my iPhone art outlets.
It started when the Popsicolor App came out a few months ago. I’ve been looking for an app to create paint drips and didn’t know of one until Popsicolor was released.
With that came the creation of “I want to find myself by the sea in another’s company.” It’s reminiscent of mixed feeling and drawn from lyrics in a song by The XX. The over all look of the image gives me a feeling of street art which I am absolutely fond.
