1000 Words Showcase, Week 10
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 Robin Pope.

Just Like You Only Sweeter by Jennifer Bracewell

This is a photo of my little girl, Charlotte, taken days before she turned four. It was early in the morning on a weekday and she was laying on the couch, deep in thought. The light hit her curly, wispy hair beautifully and I snapped a picture before she saw the phone. Later I looked at my camera roll and fell in love this image, her innocence and her inner light. I used just one app, Noir, and let her natural beauty shine. The title comes from a song by William Tell called “Just Like You Only Sweeter”. she is just like me without the bitter, and as a friend sweetly pointed out, the wisdom that age brings.

This picture was taken during a Bhiksha for a spiritual teacher. (Bhiksha is a food offering to a teacher for whom one has received knowledge. In Hindu culture, this is considered an expression of gratitude). Anyway, while all the women were scurrying about geting the food ready, this little girl bolted out of the door and ran across the field to this tree. She immediately reminded me of a prayer that the children learn:
“O Mother Earth, who has the ocean as clothes, and mountains and forests on her body, who is the wife of Lord Vishnu. I bow to you. Please forgive me for touching you with my feet.”

I live in the south-west of France at Bayonne. Saturday I went for a walk in Biarritz (nearby town). I arrived at the time of low tide. I wanted to enjoy the beach and passes only accessible at low tide. I love Biarritz. This artisan glacier is a must on the main beach of Biarritz. I stop there often with my daughter for ice cream! It’s almost the end of summer, nostalgic, I wanted immortalized holiday memories. I took this photo with Hipstamatic, black and white for more authenticity. There is no post-processing.

“You may find yourself living in a shotgun shack
You may find yourself in another part of the world
You may find yourself behind the wheel of a large automobile
You may find yourself in a beautiful house with a beautiful wife
You may ask yourself, well, how did I get here?
Letting the days go by, let the water hold me down ”
Sometimes a song comes immediately to my mind when I am looking at my camera roll. This song just seemed to sum up everything that was happening in this image. I initially stopped to capture this scene because of the beautiful light on the disarray happening in the driveway. The color image I took caught the golden light but it was too busy for me. The black and white version just seemed to fit my mood perfectly. This image is a straight Hipstamatic shot with the Loftus lens and the Rock BW film.

I took this image at a Fifties fair. The vibe of the fair was fantastic – I could see and feel how much love and excitement people put into recreating a 50s aesthetic. My idea when editing the image was to try and capture that sense of joy and beauty.

I shot this image knowing I would only see the silhouettes of my family playing on the beach. I was extremely pleased with the result, mainly for the fact you can feel the excitement from my children’s body language and hear the laughter and playful screams from them both. The reflective sun light really completes this image, enhancing the mood of a beautiful sunny day.
