This week we welcome Jennifer [ @jenniferherbig1 ] as guest editor!
About Jennifer: Personally, I’m 1 part Disney/Pollyanna & 1 part Dramatic-Dark/Dexter loving kinda girl. I started out my life as a dancer/choreographer, turned singer/songwriter – under the artist name – a girl named jaen (www.agirlnamedjaen.com : I just released an album last year and EP this past month – check it out by searching my sets/albums on Soundcloud, iTunes, Amazon etc.) & now photographer. Therefore, I’m passionate about all kinds of art and especially artists who push boundaries and break ‘rules!’. I feel so fortunate to have been introduced to this community and I’m looking forward to getting to know more of you.
About the image: Decim8 this classic! I had the pleasure of meeting David and so many other wonderful Igers this past week at Macworld in San Francisco; some of whose work I’ve been admiring for some time now, like at @poppybay & @punkrawkpurl – Not only was the event inspiring; but so was the city. So, I chose to shoot the iconic Transamerica Building. I thought it would be a challenge to present a really geometric but minimalistic image and see how we all use Kris’s app to completely transform it! Plus, with Decim8nday suggesting we use several Decim8 effects, the skies the limit. I also chose to shoot this classic structure with the now classic Hipstamatic combo, JohnS lens & Inas1969 Film. This lens always gives such rich color.

Hi all! I have so much respect for all of you fabulous artists that participated this week! It was my pleasure and honor to be guest editor! I felt a big sense of responsibility to examine and re-examine to make sure I chose and spoke from the heart. It has been mentioned many times and I concur, that this week has had so many outstanding entries; therefore, I was granted the ability to choose a total of 6 (Top 3 & 3 honorable mentions).
Please Pardon my giving a name to each piece; but as a writer it’s my way of describing what I see and feel! Congrats all! Here we go…
“San Francisco Matrix 2080″ – The darkness, depth & detail of this image is mesmerizing.
“Carnival Boardwalk, Happy, USA” – To me this image created a whole new town. The complexity, motion & transformation is fantastic.
“Mono-City Drive-By” – This beauty is so mono-minimal, yet graphically strong & I wanna visit! See the face on the left watching over his town”.
3 honorable mentions:
“We’re Leaving this rock behind!” – Love this crazy texture & surreal chaos.
“Goodbye San Francisco!” – Oh, the rich color, the terror.
“Never Forget” – Too deep to fully describe this simple but powerful surreal juxtaposition of happy blue sky & dark mournful memories! Crazy random Decim8.
The Cr8ors of Decim8nday [ @suz4nne_ and @david_baer ] and I thank you, Jennifer, for playing along this week! We hope you’ll participate again soon!
Stay tuned next week as I, [ @bridgettesxo ], take the editor’s seat for week 23 :]
