1000 Words Showcase, Week 9
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 Ryan Vaarsi.

This was my first visit to the Palouse region of Eastern Washington and I was overwhelmed by the beautiful light, stunning landscape and kind people I had met. It took me 7 hours of driving to get there and I would go back tomorrow if I could! I was with a group of like minded souls who were all there to take photos and if felt great. I took this image using Hipstamatic (most likely with the Johns lens and DC film) and made a couple of minor adjustments in Snapseed. I have always loved the ambiguity of images of long roads that vanish in the distance. I never know if I am just starting out on my journey or just coming back from one….
Woman (1) by Jacqueline Gaines
Because we live in a prominent University community, we are lucky to be surrounded by many different cultures. Every Fall there is a large Indian Festival, where people come to shop for traditional clothes and home decorations. And being an avid lover of Indian textiles, I simply had to go! As I walked through the gates, I immediately got pulled into the “Sari Hub”… where oodles of women were laughing and digging through the racks for beautiful saris and kurtis. But off to the side stood one woman, staring into the distance… obviously her mind was engaged elsewhere. My heart immediately went out to her. No longer was I interested in colorful textiles. All I could think about was how many thousands of miles this woman must’ve journeyed… away from her maternal home, family and childhood friends… and just how many life changes she must’ve gone through along the way. She clearly had a story to tell.
Bro’ by Amodali Melle
I was strolling through an art fair on a sunny sunday afternoon when my eyes were caught by papier maché characters. Obviously, I had to took pictures and decided to bring a family together. Here is the the one I choose to be the brother. He’s looking through the window of a caravan, something pretty ordinary but I reckon black and white gives him a dramatic posture.

I was at the beach for the weekend with some friends. I took this shot of my friend’s son while he and my kid were playing with the waves having a lot of fun. Who doesn’t have fun at the beach? Pure joy. Wonder lens + W40 film + Snapseed
Just Meant To Be by Donna French
I took this image of Bryan & Lindsay Arnold after the Annual Mantras Fashion Show in Mendocino where they were featured models… I asked them to just quickly pose against the side of the building and they immediately took this pose ! So amazing the energy between these two their Love and Palpable. I shared the image immediately with a poet friend Ron Willis and he wrote this poem which I think perfectly narrates the image .
What would happen
If you loved me so much
you just had to be with me,
and I loved you so much
I just had to be with you ?
Wouldn’t we find a way ?
just have to find a way ?
Wouldn’t we find a way to see
that everything the gods had
given us was just a way for us
to find each other . As though
your mythology was half the map and my mythology was the other half , and it’s just meant to be.
Just meant to be.

Music is the Language of the Heart by Mansi Bhatia

This image was taken at the Písac ruins in Peru overlooking the most magnificent agricultural terraces and the Sacred Valley. With military, religious, and agricultural structures still standing strong on the site, it is believed that this was a thriving “mini-city” in the 15th century. Just as we reached the top, our guide took out his bamboo flute and started playing the most melodious Peruvian music. As I gazed at him and the scenery before me, his music transported me back to the time when the ruins must have housed hundreds of people: families, mothers, sons, daughters, uncles, aunts … I tried to capture some of that magic I felt in that moment with this edit, which is part of my “Isolation Series” using only five apps: filterstorm, scratchcam, image blender, camera+ and modern grunge.
The Rage Under the Black Umbrella by Sacha Dohmen
The shot was taken in Germany near Cologne and it is a shot from the hip. The umbrella was too deep in her face to focus normally.
For the treatment i use Photo fx and Lo-Mob

This was taken roughly and quickly through passenger seat window with my arm stretched. Sun light was beating down on the sidewalk when I noticed a passerby from far behind. Traffic was moving very slowly like any other commuting hour and, eventually, I passed him and stopped again to wait for the signal. I just loaded Camera+ instictively, opened the window and tapped.
Photo was processed with Crossprocess.

Blue Mist by Paula Gardner

The British summer has been a bit sporadic, so when I awoke one Saturday morning to find the sun shining gloriously. I decided it was the perfect opportunity to spend the day by the beach. So off to Camber Sands I went with hubby and kids. Sand castles, cod & chips and Dune diving completed our perfect day by the sea. I captured this image of other beach goers enjoying the last of the summers sun. There was this strange mist that enveloped the dunes and the distant views of the shore. Surreal as it was it felt right, I was so pleased to see I had managed to capture the essence of the mist and beauty of the day. With a tweak of the tones in Snapseed, just to enhance to richness of the blue waters and skies.
