1000 Words Showcase, Week 23
This week’s showcase brings us outstanding photos from cedric blanchon, Suzanne Beard and Tuba Korhan.
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.

This gallery is curated by Ryan V. To see the Showcases by week click here.

And we go leave in smoke, our past memories by cedric blanchon
Memories are very important. Death passes but the memories remain. The people we love are always there if we remember them. Burning is an allegory for death, smoke with my face is my memories, but I know that I will always live in the memories of others.
For this image I used Blender, Spacepaint and Snapseed.
Street | People | Places • London Underground • by deletedpeople
I love to photograph all walks of life, nature and share what I find on all platforms. This has been such a great inspiration. For this image I used the iPhone 4′s native camera and Camera+.
Totem by aproudlove
This image originated from a photograph of a tree that I took in the mountains and essentially I was looking for a way to present it and so I was playing with various different ideas but trying to find something that would be either ethereal or spiritual. In the end what inspired me was that my kids were watching Pocahontas, which gave me the idea of trying to create a totem pole. I wanted to have this idea of a place of solitude, of being alone but at the same time not alone. I took the original image into Snapseed where I tweaked the contrast a little and then converted it to black and white using the neutral setting and I think the green filter. From there I took the image into Diptic into a two frame, wide layout and flipped one of the images to get the mirrored effect. I took the Diptic image into photo fx ultra and applied a bit of cool black mist to it. Next I went into Pixlromatic applied the Alex film, carbon light and I think the whitefiv frame. That was that

The picture was taken during a Citydialog photowalk with groups of photographers from different cities taking to the streets to take photos and collaborate on the editing (you can check the citydialogues_meet1 tag on IG). This shot was taken in front of a new wooden structure in front of the National Theatre on the London Southbank. I love bright colours and I was fascinated by this bright red background. I spent a long time trying to take pictures of people walking past when this old and fragile-looking man appeared with his hat and stick, he started walking very slowly along the structure. I snapped 4 or 5 images as he walked past. I like the contrast between his apparent fragility and the bright and bold red background behind him. The editing was quite simple and done entirely in Snapseed. I cropped the image slightly to keep the focus on the man against the red. Then I increased the saturation and the contrast in order to get as bold a red as possible.
No Vacancy by Suzanne Beard

People are into teeth. As a culture, we’re more than a little concerned with how they look, their overall health. Of course—this is hardly a bad thing. But my interest in photographing X-rays recently (and there have been many in the last year) is that this type of image shows EVERYTHING that is going on—the good, the bad, and the downright freaky that’s going on underneath our polished veneers and gym-toned muscles. Anthropological juxtaposition! The films of my two kids’ teeth were shot with the native iPhone 4S camera and edited in Snapseed–just for a little Retrolux flare and framing. The single slide is of my son’s mouth a few years ago. I’m almost certain that I used native camera here as well and framed it and added an Instagram filter, like XPro II.
Too much, the Magic Bus by angelesandexposures

I came upon this bus in a very rural part of Montana on a road trip last Fall. It had been dreary and rainy all day but the sky magically opened up during “golden/magic hour” and I was able to capture the drama of the big puffy clouds that are the namesake of Big Sky Country. I originally tried to get closer to the bus to get my shot, but realized that there were people actually living in it and of course wanted to be respectful of distance. Incidentally, not getting closer worked to my advantage because it helped in giving the bus great scale against the big sky. I love shooting with Hipstamatic and often use the John S Lens and Ina’s 1969 Film in certain situations. This vintage bus settled out in the middle of nowhere seemed like the perfect fit for this Hipsta combo. I cropped the Hipstamatic frame out of the image in Snapseed and then used the Lo-Mob app where I applied the ‘Family Instant 2’ filter to give it more of an old Polaroid feel between the filter and frame.
PunkPrincess by Tuba Korhan
I took the photo of the little girl sitting on her mother’s lap while she was listening to a story read by her mother. She seemed to be lost in the story as she was so concentrated and out of touch with her surroundings. As I began to edit the photo, I came up with the idea of creating her as a character in a fairytale atmosphere. I used the apps Popsicolor, Percolator, Perfect Image, Halftone and Laminar during the process.
