Utilising an Art Technique for a Header Photo on Social

January 05, 2018

WordPress commemorated fifteen years Sunday.  It is a hideout for bloggers of all levels of ability and interests.  It’s only been in the last couple of years that I’ve improved as a blogger.

 

Juxtapose is putting together things for a result greater than the sum of its parts.  Today’s Prompt is the word juxtapose.

 

I thought of the photos that for the three months between January and March 2018 I “employed” as a header.  https://twitter.com/findingenvirons ….

I did the juxtaposition with a paint program.  I used other sources and mixed them into a juxtaposition.

 

You can see a photo of the late Roger Moore and Grace Jones.  Jones is thriving these days at age seventy.  The photo dates to 1985 when they were starring in A View To A Kill.

 

Some of the pictures were downloaded from StockSnap.  That’s a site for getting stock photos for free.  They’re not typically thought of as art.

 

They’re cheesy but fun.

The comic I found on Pinterest.  Although Pinterest confused me, I would have liked to get to know it.  The photo of the wallet was pilfered from some random website with the help of a friend.

 

Internet images should be used responsibly, but once in a while, something turns up that I want.

The headline is announcing that done were the days of the established hundred and forty character limit for tweets.

I tweet the link to a new post for when someone will want to see it.  I also tweet trending content, Tuesdays, and Saturdays.  It is quiet but rewarding.

 

Tonight is a full moon.  If you are interested, you’re welcome to “like” it, “follow” the blog, or leave a comment, as you see fit.  Thank you for having a look at my blog.

It’s the Beginning of the New and the Time is Noted

Sacrifice is inevitable, and, really, a loss is the essence of tragedy. That’s why tears are shed, whether the sacrifice is deliberate or not, and, in the end, what was most dear to us is gone and never again had. Whatever we lose, no matter how hard we fought to earn it or how profusely we sweated to realize what we hold close, the day comes when it goes and you may not even have a chance to say goodbye.

What do we hold precious? Whatever seems to us to be the best, what we cherish if we are among the lucky, people, animals, places, property… it all goes.

It can be gone in the wink of an eye. What’s more, it will most likely be that we will never have known it at all, except in our memory.

Fate unfolds for one and all, I suspect. We have opportunities to wield our hand and to stake claim to everything we feel we want, but if misfortune strikes, all of it can be taken away, and even if we do everything in our power to keep safe what we love, I think you must know that it will go, that nothing is forever. You don’t have but once, I feel, and it doesn’t matter what else is taught you.

I want to tell you this with the best intentions. You have but what amounts to today, and you have to strike, to hold, and to keep fast, and to love because you can never count on what’s ahead. It doesn’t matter what controls you set for the future.

You will see this time go, and it will never return. The most I can do, I feel, is to let you know.

Today’s WordPress prompt is the word “gone.” If you sympathize, if you “like” this blog post, use the “like” button or “follow” or subscribe. I didn’t want to be the one to tell you, but if you’re the same as me, you’re already here.
