We had another amazing Creative Sparks session last night. Lots of great photos and insights from the group. I always enjoy our Thursday evenings and want to thank everyone who was been there over the past few months for participating and bringing such great work.
This week’s featured image is from Laurie Young. Laurie went to Boston as part of her summer vacation and brought back lots of interesting photographs including this one taken of the Irish Famine Memorial.
I really like the strong diagonal lines of the buildings leading down to the figure in the sculpture. Even without the context of the entire memorial we clearly see the emaciation in the woman’s hand as she raises it to block the sun from her eyes. The light is in perfect place making the sculpture feel alive.
Creative Sparks is a unique photography class and creativity workshop based in Vero Beach, Florida. Students are guided to discover their creative vision with nationally recognized artist/photographer Aric Attas in a small group setting.
