“The Daily Creative is an exercise in the continual practice of spontaneous creativity through short exercises. Each ‘assignment’ should take no more than 15-20 minutes. There are no registrations, no prizes, just a community of people producing art daily.”
I went out for my five mile walk along the Willamette River on a very rare day in the south Willamette Valley, in that there was a skiff of snow on the ground. The first closeup I took was of the bench on the Greenway Pedestrian Bridge, which is “an easily recognizable, common object.”
Then I got the idea to turn the camera on my iPad2 onto myself to see how much of a close-up I could get of my own eye. It was scary! I decided to make a spiritual, Eugene-type comment by tie-dying the image with rainbow colors.
I posted this picture on Flickr and really enjoyed this exchange (no, I don’t know Dr. Garcia):
@DrGarciasaid:I love the life this photo captures. It’s at once energetic and contemplative. I especially like the nose area. It looks like the bridge of an elephant trunk, in the nicest way.
