Orange Crush

This was a very delicate operation. Or… something like that.

‘ Follow me, don’t follow me…

 I’ve got my spine, I’ve got my orange crush

Collar me, don’t collar me…

I’ve got my spine, I’ve got my orange crush’

– Orange Crush – R.E.M.

Random fun with mechanically fastened fruit. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Behavior this odd (more cherry shenanigans here) just might get me excused from unpacking groceries in the future. So… that’s nice. Have a great weekend, everyone!

I’d hoped to share a milk droplet photo today, but after several hours of complete failure set-backs I decided to take a break and post some vector art instead. Take that, foodstuffs. Have a great weekend, everyone!

Chiasma

This is from a long time ago. It’s printed too dark in some spots and too light in others. AND only two students besides me actually took the time to submit images (which was nice – got me the back cover and a few pages inside, too). Still, I was very, very honored Chiasma put up with my shenanigans. AND the pear is on FIRE! Right?! Right?! Eh.

Another… ‘unusual’  conversation heard only here:

Me: “Hey, Annabelle, do we have any electrical tape?”

Annabelle: “I’m not sure. What do you need that for?”

Me: “Oh, I was just going to tape some fruit to a piece of metal. I wanted something black…”

Annabelle *without flinching*: “I think we have something similar in the top drawer.”

Pyrus Vitrum (cyanotype)

Maybe I should start out by saying I’m not a big fan of pears. The funny thing is, I always think, “if I just give them another chance I will like them”. They look like they should be… sweeter than they are. And taste… different than they do. Also there’s something about their texture… it’s just a bit off. I think.

I did a whole  series of ‘pears’ back in the day (although I probably won’t subject you to many more of them). This image I do like quite a bit, though… it’s my one remaining ‘authentically genuine’ cyanotype! Granted these things are very, very easy to ‘fake’ in Photoshop, but… still.

This is not exactly ‘your grandfathers still life’, but please bear with me (I’ve got something a little less… bizarre for tomorrow). I’ll try limit CrAzY posts to one per week, because that, dear readers, is just how I roll.
