1000 Words Showcase, Week 54
This week’s showcase brings us wonderful photos from asleepundercolumnsovlight, Scott A. Woodward and strongcomet
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.

atomic by asleepundercolumnsovlight
“Atomic” is an installment of my iApparatus series. Basically it’s a bunch of dark self portraits I’ve taken with my M4 chem mask. My love for horror movies and cover art inspire much of the series. The apps used were ArtRage, Mextures, Glaze, Repix, Image Blender, Tangent, Decosketch, Afterlight, and VSCOcam.
What’s All The Hoopla About? by Scott A. Woodward

Camera: iPhone 4S
Backstory: The Formula One circus screamed into Singapore last weekend, with all it’s glitz and glamour. The parties – bursting with celebrities, fashion models, business moguls and international DJ’s and musicians – are as much a part of the Grand Prix experience as the race itself. I made this photograph, of an aerial acrobat performing in a hula hoop while suspended from the ceiling, within moments of entering Johnnie Walker’s ‘Circuit Lounge’ party on Saturday night. I was immediately drawn to the dynamic backlight and how it cast the woman in silhouette as she dangled precariously, yet gracefully, overhead.
The Bee Presenter by strongcomet

A Month ago we moved from the big city to a small village in the country side. It is quite a change in our daily lives, but we love nature, the people here are nice and warm, and we soon felt like home again…
The surroundings here are incredible. Vines, fields, forests, so we started looking around, and came across some bee hives, right at the edge of a forest. I took a couple of photos with Hipstamatic (John S lens & BlacKeys SuperGrain film). The scene was rather spooky and mysterious, but I felt it needed another twist. I love ghost stories / horror movies, so I added this haunted child that held flowers in one hand and a presenting gesture with the other that was just perfect for this scene.
All my B&W photos go through the AltPhoto app to give it a real film touch, and there you go: A ghost presenting bee hives!

Society Hill Hotel, Philadelphia by cecilyc123
Having lived most of my life on the West Coast I am always shocked as to how “old” cities on the East Coast look to me. I did live in Brooklyn/New York City for 6 years and this particular scene took me back to those days instantly: I remembered the warm, humid summer rains; the feelings of living in a sauna/steam room; and the wonderful release of taking a hot shower at the end of the day. What drew my attention at this particular moment was the Society Hill Hotel name contrasted against the rather dilapidated state of the “hotel” itself. To me the name of the hotel brings visions of Edith Wharton, intricate and elaborate dresses, engraved calling cards and horse drawn carriages. I also loved how the silhouette of the girl and the umbrella added to my nostalgia. I took this image with Hipstamatic and processed it lightly in Snapseed and Camera+.
“Pulvus et umbra sumus;” we are but dust and shadow by allophile
A couple of years ago, on New Year’s Day, I went for a hike up Blackett’s Ridge, about a ten minute drive from where I live; the trail ends up on a perch overlooking Sabino Canyon on one side and Bear Canyon on the other. Even though this mountaintop sits just above the edge of Tucson, the city seems a world away when you’re looking down into the canyons or up to the forested peaks… It was one of those cloudless 75-degree-in-the-winter days when Tucson feels like it must the best possible corner of the country. Despite my efforts to just ‘be in the moment’ while outdoors, thoughts of goals and mortality are inevitable on January 1st, and so some words from the Roman poet Horace came to mind: “We are but dust and shadow,” echoing Job who earlier said: “Man fleeth as a shadow…”
I used AutoStitch and snapseed to piece this together from 6 shots taken with my iPhone4.
The fighting cats by Veevs3
I have recently discovered the amazing Street Art around East London. Such amazing, talented artists. This one is a huge mural in Hanbury Street of two fighting cats by Dal East. The day I went to see this there was a group of people doing some filming in front of the mural. I was watching them when the guy dressed in white walked past so I took the shot. I loved the contrast of the bright red, the fighting cats, the white and black clothing of the people. I used Oggl to take the photo then processed it with Snapseed.
Pray by The_Real_McCoy
I am drawn to churches, but I do not pray. I observe. I learn. To deal with my pain.
Agenti segreti in pensione by iVajo
The title is Italian. “Agenti segreti in pensione,” translates to something like, “retired secret service agents.” A common sight around Southern Italy – older men sitting on benches talking about the good old days and watching the world go by. The picture was taken with PureShot Basic, with edits done in Snapseed and Lo-Mob.

I was walking by the entrance to a parking garage and I found the scene interesting. Processed using Snapseed.
