As part of the ‘A Word A Week Photograph Challenge‘ themed ‘Light’ I took these photographs of the evening Rush Hour under a thin vial of fog.
Star Wars Football Teams
I really love this sweet collection of Star Wars ‘Sports’ logos created in the style of American ‘NFL’ Football Teams, they really are great ‘geeky’ T-Shirt material, all of which are beautifully executed and crafted by David Creighton-Pester.
If they were real football teams who would you root for?
The winter frost and freezing fog proved an opportunity too good to miss yesterday, so armed with ‘trusty the camera’ it provided me with a brief moment in time capture some images which are so fitting for this weeksWeekly Photo Challenge theme of Delicate. I witnessed beautiful intricate spiders webs in the frost and winter grasses in suspended animation, it was a perfect lunchtime walk.
I’d originally planned on doing 4 individual galleries using the brilliant new WordPress Media Manager for this week’s Photo Challenge to represent the changing seasons of winter, spring summer & autumn showing all floras in my own garden, as I’ve taken quite a few images over the last 12 months…so the choice was endless. Sorry to say, but, this idea was quickly dropped as the drive to work yesterday offered me a true fragment in time to capture the beauty of a changing season in my home County of Yorkshire with a stunning winter sunrise over a freshly ploughed farmer’s field and a flock of birds preparing for migration on what was a very chilly and frosty December morning.
12 : 12 : 12 : 12 : 12 : 2012
This year ‘2012’ provides us with a truly unique moment in time on the 12th minute after 12 O’Clock & 12 Seconds, on the 12th Day of the 12th Month, 2012… Epic!.
But it got me thinking…how do we capture that moment… this precise second.
I came up with the idea to use my graphic design skills to create a typographical christmas wreath to symbolise this moment, although ‘thankfully’ through the design process it developed into a more fitting and festive ‘Christmas Tree’ thanks to observations from others.
The next stage was choosing the perfect typeface to build this yuletide moment in time, but I have to say… this was the easy part, as the typography company Aerotype had sent me a Promo PDF of their latest ‘Tattoo’ typeface Keepsake that had the most beautiful Glyphs, which can add so much character to any piece of typography. Although beautiful as it was, I couldn’t afford to buy this gorgeous font for my simple task at hand, luckily I managed to extract from their PDF what I needed to create my christmas typo tree (sorry Aerotype, no copyright infringement intended)… all in the name of Art.
Below is a ‘Tiled Gallery’ of my initial sketch ideas and all the ‘design-development’ concepts which lead to the final piece… but lets not forget this all stemmed from that 12th Minute after 12 O’Clock & 12 Seconds, on the 12th Day of the 12th Month 2012
… a true festive fragment in time
