Focus

Have you ever run out of storage space while taking pictures with your iPhone?

Dreamy Rothko-like images appear and freeze the camera.

Is it possible to deliberately take a photo like that on a smart phone?
Or are the devices too smart, assuming we always want things in focus.

The First

waterlogue of a truck butt
605 North, digital watercolor, 2015

Here is the first waterlogue I made of the back end of a truck for the #myshittycommute series. Created on 6/16/15, I hadn’t yet completely formed my compositional parameters (wipers visible).
This was recently released from “photo jail”.

I have more than 15K photos/images on my phone.
I “lost” computer access to them due to an OS upgrade in September January (no room on the laptop for the new Photos application). I had some clunky workarounds, including emailing to self. I finally decided that I’d had it and got myself a new Mac Mini, which arrived on Thursday. I can now see ALL my truck waterlogues as thumbnails in one place — what a relief! I have to figure out what to get printed for my show in July!

Wait… July 9 (hanging day) is only 35 days away. Uh oh.
Procrastination is the bane of my existence.
