1000 Words Showcase, Week 41
This week’s showcase brings us wonderful photos from maktub77 – street dog, _tuck and Photopaul15.
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.

When Jesus cry, oh yes he cries…. this is what i love about street photography. I took this one on a bus station and the woman studied the roadmap. With the right treatment and use of light it´s possible to tell a very different story and to awake emotions. I shot this with Hipstamatic. For the treatment i use Snapseed, Camera Awesome, Filterstorm, PhotoCopier and Mexture.
Urban lines by _tuck

This shot was taken on a weekend trip. Nagoya is not as famous as Tokyo or Osaka, but I like to shoot street snaps there. There are many very urban buildings and these make good silhouettes. I was really excited when I found this place. My friends and I posed perfectly. Shot with an iPhone 5 and processed with VSCO and Snapseed.

I stopped in the center of 8th Ave. in NYC and took this image just before the light turned green. The views from the center on any street in NYC are spectacular and I love to be able to allow people to see NYC that may have never been there.
Merelda’s Antique Shop by MahoganyTurtle
Merelda’s Antique Shop was inspired by a group of antique style telephones and gramophones that I photographed last week. The base image was a “no known copyright restrictions” vintage photo from the creative common archives of the State Records of NSW. I deliberately chose to use a genuine old photo to build layers on the antiquity subject. It was processed using Tinyplanet, Glaze, Juxtaposer, Image Blender, Paintfx, Pixlromatic+, picgrunger Lenslight and Photocopier.
Battle of Waterloo reenactment 2013 by shonski32

What could be more photogenic than a bunch of grown men and women that dress-up and play soldiers? The Battle of Waterloo reenactment is an annual modern recreation of the 19th century Battle of Waterloo on the original battlefield in Waterloo, Belgium. It is held every June on the weekend nearest to the historic date of the Battle of Waterloo (18. June 1815). In a regular year there will be 600-800 reenactors from France, Belgium, Great Britain, Germany, Poland and Russia.
Workflow: Snapseed (crop, details, drama, center focus) and FilmLab (Dark Makara)
Say Cheese by Ferguscat1
I took this photo recently while on holiday in Melbourne. As I was walking through one of the many inner city lane ways, I saw this man photographing the lady he was with. I initially noticed him because he was so intent on taking the photograph even though the lane was very busy. It was then that I noticed the wonderful old school camera he was using. You see people taking photos with their phones and DSLR cameras all the time, but this was something a little different. I decided to process it using some vintage filters and colours as it seemed fitting for the type of camera he was using. I took several photos of the couple and on the last one he spotted me. We exchanged hellos and I told him how much I loved his camera. He smiled widely and said thank you before turning back to continue taking his companions photo. My photo was taken using an iPhone 4 and processed using Snapseed and Distressed FX.
Wish you were here… by Catherine Restivo

I took this shot about a year ago while walking along the path that runs along the Hudson River. This group of friends were enjoying an animated conversation, and I took their photo while pretending to shoot the tree/sky. Stealth, that’s my middle name. I don’t think I fooled them at all, actually.
First I opened the shot in Snapseed and cropped it, then added the Drama filter and brought the saturation down quite low for just a hint of color. Then I used the straighten tool to level out the horizon a bit. I didn’t want the white pole and garbage can in the photo, so I first tried taking them out using Touch Retouch, but because the white pole was so close to the tree all I was getting was bark in place of the pole. So I brought it into Filterstorm and used the clone tool instead, “painting” on the background to replace the unwanted objects.
Brought it back into Snapseed and applied TiltShift, using the elliptical shape, and the Center Focus tool, so that there would be more focus on just the people, and I used Lo-Mob to add a frame (InstantX Tall). I wanted it to seem like one of the people in the group sent the photo to a friend, so I added the handwritten note using Image Blender. The handwriting is actually an old family photo that I have on my computer. To grunge it up and make it look well-worn and traveled, I ran it through Repix to add dust and scratches, and then Paint FX to paint on the Vintage Warm filter. Next I blended the non-Paint FX version with the Paint FX edit to tone down the brown tones a bit.

That’s the neighborhood where I grew up, just near my parents house. During that period the place was quite different but that bench is still the same. Seeing that old man I had the feeling of the passing time and I wanted to capture it in a photograph.
