This little girl’s excitement captures how I feel when I stumbled upon Wells Baum’s Instagram feed. It’s a collection of trees, colorful shapes, and clever abstraction—it’s no surprise why I like it. This image is delightful in it’s spirit and wonderfully framed. Also, I really hope that is a drawing of an apple saying, “Avocado.”
It’s not surprise that I am attracted to color and shapes. They are the rudimentary elements of art and when I see them used in such a simplistic way, such as in this image by Shamila Chaudhary, my eye and mind are instantly pleased and calmed. While the colors red and yellow are said to cause tension, I don’t feel it as the boy’s confident, natural stride smooths the friction as he turns the corner.
Each week when I look at the #ExposedDC Instagram feed I’m amazed by all the talented photographers that Washington, D.C. has. I see many photographers, like Albert Ting, who know how to use light from indoor spaces to create a geometric oasis. Primary red, blue, and yellow hues are details in the room that the photographer didn’t add, but he doesn’t rely on a funky colorful spot to carry his image. Ting knows how to take a photograph and embraces his talent to produce a stunning image.
Today is another good day for monochromatic color. Antwain Jackson wishes us some St. Patty’s Day luck on this August Monday.
This is a fun image—I don’t think I’ve ever seen a photograph of inside a car wash. There were many images that I was interested in featuring today by Kevin Wolf. In this photograph, my eye bounces from every corner and angle. The colors, the gritty textures and motion of the suds fleeing from the mop are extremely captivating, making this the perfect choice for today’s In Frame.
