1000 Words Showcase, Week 52
This week’s showcase brings us wonderful photos from clix2020, thomas.kakareko and Raffamuffin.
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.

The Answer by clix2020
Flickr // 500px
“The Answer” is literally an answer to its sister-image “The Question” and, as a set, illustrate the subtly of unspoken language, a mother tongue we all share. While we can only imagine the question, the sparse reserve of The Answer suggests a less than affirmative answer, or perhaps a calm resolve that needs no words to communicate.
It was created with Snapseed, Camera+, Decim8, iColorama, Mextures, DiffusedFX, Superimpose.
New York 1 by thomas.kakareko
I took this picture during my short trip to NYC last week. It was my first time there and I was so excited about the endless street photography possibilities. This city and its people are just perfect for what I love to capture. I was walking towards Columbus Circle when I spotted this cab driver smoking while he was leaning against his car. For me this was such a typical NYC moment that I had to just stop and take a photo even though I knew that he would most likely notice me.
As always I started my edit with Snapseed for cropping and some minor tweaks. Afterwards I took it to VSCO and tried every single b/w filter until I found one that I liked. I’m a big fan of the b/w tones that VSCO creates and I also appreciate the fact that you can fully customize every filter. Then I took it back to Snapseed and added some contrast and a slight vignette.
Tonino libero by Raffamuffin
I shot this with an iPhone 4S and edited the photo with Swankolab I used the “formula” Jungle Jim’s Secret Sauce because I wanted clean the green so the writing is more visible.
The place is the entrance of the Poggioreale jail in Napoli, Italy “Tonino” was one of the most famous members of the anarchy groups in Napoli during the 90s.
Catharsis by devine1225aaa
The inspiration for this image came from the most talented instagram artist, @THELJILJA and her words to me saying that her photoset was a result of exploration of how it feels when pain starts to bleed … that was her driving force that guides her to send me the right wonderful pic of hers. That was it, I felt possessed at once and I took one more pic of her library to satisfy my driving force this time that was my darkness and my passion to create creepy images … So I cropped the two pics with squaready and then added them to Filtersrom pro to brush the areas I wanted to hide…then I loaded the images into Blender that is my favorite app to blend images and I had already a wonderful result. Then I went straight to Mextures to use that texture pack called grunge and then to Snapseed to make it black and white. Back to Filterstrom pro to adjust the contrast and give that noise effect to make the edit look more creepy and that was it … a great image my Catharsis and hers that without her beauty and her darkness it would be nothing.
Zébulon by Catherine Restivo

While on vacation in Nice, France I walked past this store front and was struck by the colors and retro feel. As I whipped out my iPhone 4 and opened up Hipstamatic, I couldn’t believe my luck as these two men and the dog came walking through!
The Hipsta combo I used was the Doris lens and Sussex film, part of the Brighton HipstaPak, and I think the warm retro feel of the combo worked well with the shot. I ran it through Snapseed to apply structure and a slight frame.
It’s not who you love, it’s how by Rob Pearson-Wright

On this day I found something pure, something special. Two souls connected, two hearts entwined. It warmed my cynical and slowly mending heart. Their expression of love for each other was clear as the deep blue sky above them and burnt as brightly as the sun that bathed them in light. Oblivious to anything else, they touched each other more sensually than sexually, enjoying the simple pleasure of touch. There were no words spoken during the time I observed these two ladies, just physical expression. Two people totally in to each other in a moment in time. Whoever you fall in love with, love them well.
Shot taken with the native camera on an iPhone 4. A little brightness and white balance adjustment in Snapseed. Put through BigLens to bring the lovers into deep focus and then Noir for a black and white conversion and a little vignetting.
Merely a shimmer by iamscottiew

This image is the end result of an experiment in layering. Having just purchased the PhotoShop Touch app for my iPhone, I brought an image in to the app that I felt lacked interestingness. I played around with the various tools and ended up creating a new layer of just the church, then stretched and warped it until I was satisfied with the look. I then replaced the base layer in PS Touch with another version of the image created in Camera Awesome with a grunged-up sky, which gave me the final look that I wanted.
Thunderbird dash by iamscottiew
I’ll always slam on the breaks and recklessly cross three lanes of traffic when I spot classic examples of mid-century engineering. What was supposed to be a quick trip to pick up some Chinese take-out, resulted in a 30 minute photo shoot at a roadside car show. For me, the bulky lines, the polished chrome, the vibrant paint and delightful designs just have to be squeezed into a square format and treated with a splash of some lo-fi loveliness. I’ll have an anxiety attack if I drive by a pre-1965 classic car and can’t stop to snap a photo. Please tell my family that I am truly sorry for the cold Chinese dinner Friday night. This image was shot and edited with Oggl, I used John S lens and BlacKeys XF film for the delightful dash on this old Thunderbird.

Camera Roll-227 by asleepundercolumnsovlight
This shot is of Mike, a mechanic I know. He’s a really laid back stoner who plays in jam bands around town. Whenever I bring my truck in to his shop we usually end up talking about classic rock and how hard it is to find decent drummer.
