As positive a revelation as Instagram has been to encourage the world to embrace mobile phone photography, unfortunately most people that use it also seem to believe it comes with a free hat that reads “professional creative photographer” (I confessionly own this hat but have put it at the bottom of my “do not wear” drawer alongside my “tell people I’m bored today” facebook T-shirt and my “tots luv my bezzy friends” twitter cardigan), leading to hordes of quadrangular, lo-fi capturings of sunsets, buildings and what people had for lunch.
However, at times you do stumble across a gem that someone truly clever with the simple tools of the mobile photographers trade creates that brings a smile, Brock Davis is just that kind of a fella.
Just look at his ‘Historic Explosions in Cauliflower’ series to see how he likes to play. Can you guess the event?
Despite the unseasonal pleasantness of the last couple of weeks sunshine my associates and I chose the wet bank holiday weekend to venture Whitstable bound on our two wheeled steeds. Despite the lack of sunshine upon our faces and relaxed nature of the wheeled upon course it still gave birth to 2012 bike bound period and rehashed the memories of a slow steady ride about town, letting the pace of your pedals slow your thoughts in line with the hazy Sunday park session.
Brazilian illustrator Adams Carvalho captures perfectly in this series just that feeling.
The simplicity of the composition and strength of the shadow against the easy colour scheme just does it for me, makes me wish it was Sunday, or at least sunny…and possibly that I was back in Brazil.
stuff & things
Periodical, blog, diary or sorts, not too sure what you’d categorise these mussing as but let’s just file it under “STUFF & THINGS” for now. things that we like, stuff that amuses, and hopefully an insight into why. Plus I like to talk…quite a lot….whether anyone is here to listen or not.
