30 DAYS OF CREATIVITY — DAY 4
Day 4 already and I’m getting creative with the placement of the 30DOC in my post. Watch it closely … where it stops … nobody knows … and your guess is as good as mine.
Today’s look at creativity is a study of life imitating with the help of the digital camera. A couple of springs ago I took a photo of a plot of crocus growing along a side walk that has since turned into a Metrolink Station in downtown Clayton. My mother, who was in a wheel chair due to a broken hip and arthritis in her hands that didn’t allow her to use a walker loved the picture so I printed a few 8 X 10 for her and a couple of friends.
Was the creativity in turning real life into faux artwork in the flowers, in the camera, or in the printing?
I called the photo SPRING AWAKING in tribute to the German play of 1891 by Frank Wedekind and the American musical adapted from it that opened in 1906 shortly after my mother passed away. I doubt if my mother would have appreciated the play, but she loved the 16 X 20 print hanging in her living room that brought a little bit of spring into her life.
For Glee fans … SPRING AWAKING marked the adult* Broadway debuts of Lea Michele (Rachel Berry) and Jonathan Groff (Jesse St. James).
My photo is not responsible for their career success in any way. Actually I’m not that responsible for the photo … all I did was click the shutter. The camera added the magic.
