1000 Words Showcase, Week 53
This week’s showcase brings us wonderful photos from D. Ingraham, tuanmudakrisna and Martina P.
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.

In an L.A. Mood by D. Ingraham

This image was taken earlier this year during an L.A. Instagram meet-up.
A bunch of us went down to the famously-cinematic L.A. river and fortunately it was a wet, gloomy day — not the norm in these parts — so it made for some nice moody photography. This is my friend Whittier Sam wandering the river basin.
Shot with Hipstamatic, I edited this in Snapseed and then forgot about it. Many months later I rediscovered it, editing the edit using Snapseed and Final Touch. The end result is a little over-baked — a lot of digital artifacts showing up — but it’s got a strong mood to it so I posted it anyway.
Untitled by tuanmudakrisna
This image was inspired by the work of Alex Webb, one of the Magnum photographers. I really love his work and I consider him one of the color masters in the world of Street Photography. I didn’t processed the image. It came just like that from Pro Camera (I set the aspect ratio 3:2 in-app).
Le vieil homme et les pigeons by Martina P.

I had just arrived in London and was walking in St James’s Park – one of the places I absolutely wanted to go to while I was in this city. I was, of course, walking with my phone in hand, shooting photos. When I saw this old man on the bench, feeding the pigeons, I knew I had to take his picture. I took six or seven and this is the one that came out best. It was better composed, I liked how the pigeons formed a compact mass at the man’s feet and I liked the expression on the man’s face: there was something very gentle and focused about it.
The processing was quite simple. I just tried to find the right Hipstamatic combo in Oggl. The John S. lens creates a subtle pattern that highlights the man and the pigeons, and the Uchitel 20 film gave the scene the vintage look I was searching for – because, for me, that scene seemed to come from another time. That’s why I gave it the title “Le vieil homme et les pigeons” (“The Old Man and the Pigeons”), alluding to Hemingway’s novel The Old Man and the Sea. There is, in this image, a distant echo of that book; the old man reminds me of Hemingway’s character, or, at least, of how I remember him and the book itself.

Gianni is a very funny fellow, a single laugh and a great lover of mini bikes. One day and one not question me when I go to compete with him and his brother. Process: Hipstamatic: Tinto 1884 + D Type Plate Combo.
Blind Love by Erika Brothers
The inspiration of this photo was based on experimenting different shots and angles to project a certain image. The photo was processed with ProCamera as the first shot, then Superimpose and final adjustments I use Camera+ and Snapseed.
Film Noir by Blangblenton
I shot this last Tuesday, close to where I live. I had shot there before, so I knew this shadow was cast by the streetlamp early in the morning. On my way there I saw this man with his hat going the same way as me, so I ran a little bit and waited for him to pass. I took a few shots but kept this one with just the shadows. I’m a big fan of film noir and it’s dark and oppressing mood. I get a lot of inspiration from the films of Fritz Lang, Jacques Tourner, Robert Siodmak, Sam Fuller etc. Shot with Hipstamatic JohnS/BlackKeysSupergrain. Cropped and tuned with Snapseed. I darkened the shadow of the streetlamp a bit with selective adjustment.
