1000 Words Showcase, Week 14
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 gallery is curated by Ryan V.

Juxt thanks you for your contributions!
cold flames by Artf@rmer
This red barn sits in the back of a very old cemetery and I’ve been wanting to shoot it for some time. What I hadn’t realized from a distance was the amazing bushes that fill the lower frame. On this day the sun was low, barely over the barn ridge, and illuminating the bushes. In my opinion their energy and color make the shot. I almost always shoot with Camera+ . I used 30% Sunkiss’d and the IG filter Valencia. I love this cold barren time in New England, but also how these colors stand in stark contrast to the bleak landscape with their warmth and bold energy.

DESCRIPTION: A friend of mine told me about this place that was full of giant driftwood and trees that were now part of the beach, so I took a little drive about four hours north, from Florida into Georgia. This location, called Driftwood Beach on Jekyll Island, was well worth the drive and the speeding ticket I got on the way. I’ve never seen anything like it, kinda surreal. The whole area looked like a scene from a Tim Burton movie, who is someone I draw a lot of inspiration from artistically. This was one of many I photographed that day but was the first and probably still my favorite, I refer to it as “Patient Zero”.
PROCESS: I took the photo with 645 Pro using a iPhone 4S. I use the “Q” mode setting, no film effects. I went into Camera+ and used the Clarity feature and added the black and white filter then saved it. Next to Photo Forge 2 and slightly lowered the brightness and upped the contrast just a bit. I opened up the Pop! Cam feature in Photo Forge 2 and tapped the black white 1900 film and then used vignette number 4. Next I adjusted the hue, saturation and lightness a bit, saved it and that was it!
The Jazz Player by kaphinga

This image started out as a straight street photo, with a lot of distracting buildings in the background, outside the High Museum in Atlanta. I knew as soon as I saw his expression and the gorgeous late afternoon light falling across his face that I had to get a picture of him. Resisting my usual temptation to get crazy with the edit, I tried to keep this edit straightforward. I didn’t want anything to distract from his face. Basically, I used Superimpose to replace the background and then used Juxtaposer to refine some of the edges. I might have added some subtle texturing with Photocopier. Then, I uploaded it quickly … before I started getting any wild editing ideas.
Urban Angel by Lochthyme

The location of the image inspired the apping of the image. It was taken in a hospital in the city hence the title Urban Angel as in Angel of Mercy or Angel of Death. My husband was very sick over the summer, thankfully he is making a full recovery, but we have spent a lot of time in hospitals and during our last visit recently we were there for over 8 hours. Ones mind tends to wander while waiting and this image was created.
I used Hipstamatic to take the picture and MonoVu, ScratchCam and WowFX HD to edit it.

This is not the first time I have photographed this pier and probably wont be the last. I am in love with the symmetry of it all. The lines that lead the eye to the end, the whale tail shaped structure in the centre and the pairs of lights either side. I could take photos of this pier everyday, It makes me happy.
I shot this with the native iPhone5 camera and edited it with Noir photo & Snapseed for a small amount of detail touch up.
Untitled by Tal Shafik
I took the image using Kitcam’s wonderful Split Lens. Using the live preview really helps in creating surreal effects. I then processed the image using Snapseed, which really improved their selection of frames and textures in the latest update.
Run Charlie Run by maktub77 – street dog
I took this one months ago, it was not really sharp and I had no idea for the treatment. So I put it aside. I’m a great music fan and by a session I heard this song “Run Charlie Run” by the Temptations. Immediately I had the image in my head and began the editing.
You’ll Find A Way by dcemmy

This image has a long history–at least, from starting shot to the “finish” you see here… The original photo of the building was one of the first photos I ever took with my iPhone 4. It was also one of my first attempts at my now beloved architectural photography. I posted it in original form last year, and I still like that shot quite a bit: it’s a simple, yet clean and sharp window reflection that required little editing–just a bit of Camera+ “vibrance” to being out the bold blue color.
I’ve become more creative with my edits over time, however, so I recently decided to revisit some of my early shots and see what else I could “do” with them. In this case, I flipped the building sideways, and then warped the glass using PS Express. And that was all I planned to do. But that effect suddenly made it look like a slide at a playground to me. So… I went with it: I added the running child from a cut out from an old silhouetted beach shot I had on hand, using one of my favorite “play editing” apps, Juxtaposer. And now it feels complete. As a building slide for shadow children… Clearly.

I hate it when humans say “when pigs fly” referring to something impossible. Thus today I want to prove them wrong, not only to defend my category but also to show that – thanks to the power of imagination – anything is possible. Everything. So take a good pair of wings, close your eyes, take a breath and let go, you won’t regret: after all you just have to forget for a moment to be human; or pig, which is the same thing. Right?
