1000 Words Flickr Showcase, Week 33
This week’s showcase brings us wonderful photos from Catherine Restivo, cecilyc123 and eloise.capet.
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. To see the Showcases by week click here.

Namaste no. 1 by Catherine Restivo

Last weekend I experienced a wonderful, unexpected New York City moment: I stepped outside a cafe to find myself in the middle of the Sikh Parade, engulfed in a glorious riot of colors and sounds, culture and spirit. Taken with an iPhone 4 using Hipstamatic John S lens + W40 film.
Experimenting with slow shutter app on Sunday by cecilyc123
I took a drive with my daughter last Sunday to go see some Lilac gardens in Woodland, Washington. Before we left to go home we went to explore the area near the levy on the Lewis River. My daughter wanted to bring this dress along so we could take pictures of her in it and we both thought this was the perfect setting. The clarinet was in the car because she had just had a Spring recital the day before. To make this image I used the Slow Shutter app to take the image and then used Photocopier and Snapseed to fine tune it. I also need to thank Clint Cline, because without his challenge on Eye’Em, I would not have combined these two apps!
Instability of femininity by eloise.capet
Flickr // FB // Tumblr // Twitter
A woman, an elegant pair of shoes, legs, a mirror, in the shade or in the light, melancholy or sadness, backstage or bracketed time, no matter. I love when an image tells a story that is why I stage situations full of mystery. I seek emotion with obsession and I found it in evanescence, illusion and instability of human being, especially femininity. I long to be touched when I shoot since I am highly influenced by subjective photography and photographers like Miroslav Tichy, Francesca Woodman and Sarah Moon. This photograph is an intrigue as the observer cannot refrain from wondering what is the matter with this woman. Who is she? Is she a contemporary parisian lady or is she coming from the “Roaring twenties”? Is she waiting? In vain? Why is she so elegant? Is she in love? Why is she stretched out? Is she feeling fragile, desperate?
I simply tried in this photograph to swing the imagination of the observer into motion by creating a mysterious and melancholic mood.
I shot with Cameramatic, using the B&W High Contrast Filter. I then adjusted the whites, luminosity and contrasts with Snapseed. I applied textures with ScratchCam and blurred the image with PhotoFX.
Untitled by GianlucaRicoveri
This photo was taken on an afternoon in Coltano, a small village near Pisa, Tuscany. The avenue to reach the village is formed by a long row of pine trees that I love to photograph in different seasons, at different times with different apps. The picture was taken with an IPhone 5 using 645 Pro, and used Photogene for some editing and saved it to my iPad. The second round of editing was done in Snapseed and finally I used Laminar for some additional textures.
The One Who Visits by Tracy J Thomas (tjthomas)
When I was a child I loved anything that had to do with Superhero’s. I also believed that guardian angels were real and would visit people in their time of need. ”The One Who Visits” is a composite of a photo I took of a street artist and one I took of a metal sculpture of angels wings on the grounds of a winery. This piece symbolizes the quintessential hero of my childhood. In essence he is my superhero guardian angel who in my chid’s imagination would visit and protect me from the dangers of my childhood Hell. I shot both images with my iPhone 4 using ProCamera and edited it with Camera+, Juxtaposer, Laminar and Lenslight.
Horse on Lincoln West Common by Phoneographer

I have quite an eclectic range of images but in general my aim is to capture or create an atmosphere rather than document a scene. This day in March the fog lingered and it is without a doubt my favorite weather to photograph in. The atmosphere is built in and the world is a mysterious magical place. I had to go out with my iPhone. Like a child in a sweet shop there were images everywhere. At the time I quickly apped a few and created a blog post. This one was captured on Hipstamatic (Tinto 1848 / AO BW film). The border was cropped away and image re-sized in Filterstorm. A second version was created in PS Express with boosted exposure. These 2 versions were merged in Pro HDR. It was then run through Alt Photo Toy Camera effect and then put to one side. My blog post focused on trees.
A month or so later in late April I picked it up again. I ran it through Rainy Daze and then converted it to B&W and straightened slightly in Snapseed. Finally it went back through Alt Photo to add the border.

This image was inspired first and foremost by my interest in the way hands look. I also love the creative messiness of paint. Taking this shot as a faceless portrait really accents the arms, and the off-center look conveys the intentional dissonance: simple beauty dashed with paint, a soft portrait but without highlighting a face.
I processed this photo with Afterlight: Russ filter 70%. Played around with the contrast until I got it how I wanted it, and then upped the exposure. Then vsco #5.
The dear and wonderful Lady Elanora Treehead near the Channel boutique in Knightsbridge by Paoloski22

This is another straight forward street photo with my iPhone using the Hipstamatic app and the JohnS & Black Keys Supergrain combo.
I find using my phone so much more discreet and subtle, as always I always try to look distracted, like I’m texting and as if I haven’t noticed the subject.
In this case the lady in the photo looked interesting with her look store and sunglasses. The light was just right and the street was fairly empty. I held the phone in front of me and fired off a couple of shots without looking directly, hoping for the best as I neared the subject. The tree emerging from her head was a total surprise and for once I chose a rather surreal title for the pic.

#emptychairsproject : : ιѕтrιa, croaтιa. by ar_55

This was taken with an iPhone 5 in the small village of Boljun, on the Croatian peninsula called Istria. For me, Istria is certainly one of the favourite parts of my country.
We weren’t even meant to end up in this village that day but the restaurant up the mountain Učka (not far from here) we were hoping to have lunch in was closed. So we ate at another place from which we could see this little village perched on top of the hill. And naturally, we went to have a look. And it was beautiful. Boljun is an old fortified village with an amazing castle ruins dating back to 11th century (right behind me as I was taking the photo). And the views – well, as you can see – not bad at all! The photo would’ve worked with just nature but I do like a human presence so my other half kindly obliged and stood on the wall until I was satisfied with the shot.
I love those empty chairs too. There for a perfect viewing experience.
I used Snapseed first for cropping, adding a Vintage filter (0 texture) and adjusted the saturation.
Then into Blender app where I blended a photo with one of the Merek Davis’ Mextures (I use them ALL the time!) and “brought out” the male figure with a soft masking brush.
And finally PS Express app where I applied a bit of Soft Focus and Reduced Noise too.
