Something’s Fishy…

I thought it may be time to give you a lil sum-sum of my own again.  Here are some photos I took of fish that I bought at the farmers market (and touched with my bare hands!) for a photography project in high school.  Actually it was my senior project, i wanted to do a series on animals, creatures, what-have-you.

Side note: when I went in to buy the fish from the market I made the mistake of telling the man that it was for an art project, and he was quite unhappy with that.  He was adamant that the fish were cleaned and cut perfectly for eating and that it would be a waste.  I felt terrible, but I don’t think they went to waste.  What do you think?  Do you think?!

Now I am pretty happy with these photos, I think the fish look beautiful, they shine and the colors are the greatest part.  The beauty of nature, huh? Yes.

Aside from these waterbabies, I also photographed a friend’s dogs, farm animals, and some zoo animals.  Maybe if you’re lucky… I’ll throw in a little extra here.

Now please, help yourself to some fish.

I compiled these photos- and a few more- together in Photoshop to create one final product.  With all of my final animal compilations I had a space in the school gallery for the Senior Project Show.

(It kind of looks like child’s play now…but it was cool at the time.)

Oh alright, I’ll throw in a pup for you.

Woof.

Top 10 Baby!

This was going to be a ‘top 5’ list but my favorite paintings by Vladimir Kush just cannot be narrowed down to 5.  Yes, Mr. Kush is another artist I stumbled upon while surfing the web.  He is a surrealist painter originally from Russia, who now resides in Hawaii.  Kush has four galleries in the U.S. currently, and plans to expand throughout the world.

His paintings…. they’re just so…epic.  And witty!  And stunning, breathtaking, heartstopping…all of the above.  I want to be in them.  I want to float away inside of them.  I want to wrap them around me.  I want to see through their lens.  I want to live the lives of the creatures within them.  I just want to sip margaritas and watch the suns inside of them set over the waters (my perfect man will want this too…but that’s irrelevant).  There aren’t really words, so why don’t I just show you?
