Quotography – Winter

Welcome to  “Quotography and Affirmations”. The rules are simple, a theme will be suggested and you will match a quote or affirmation to a photograph or a digital collaged image.  The link at the end of the page will be open for a month so you can post as many times as you like.

The theme for January is “Winter” and I have featured the art of Rakusan. This piece is titled “Dead Tree with Scarlet Kazura Vine and Laughing Thrush (Winter)” and I have added a Haiku poem by Charles de Lint.

“Somewhere under these great piles of snow, the flowers of Spring lie dreaming”.

Painter, woodblock print artist and printer, Rakusan was born Tsuchiya Kôzô in Hyogo Prefecture in 1896, his family moving to Kyoto while he was still a child. He showed a talent for painting as a boy, and with no introduction from influential supporters, his family still managed to get him accepted as a student of Kyoto’s most famous painter of the day, Seiho Takeuchi. After seven years with the master, Rakusan opened his own studio. During the 1920s and 30s he printed and sold his work from his studio until it was disrupted by World War II. In the 1950s his work was sold in the US by Walter Foster. Rakusan’s best known work is a series of 100 woodblock prints done between 1925 and 1929. The work is called Rakusan Flower and Bird Print Series and became so popular the artist went on to print second and third editions. He died in 1976.

Quotography – Harvest

I regret to announce that I will no longer be able to continue with Quotography, I have enjoyed my journey with you all and this week will be the last week the site will be open.

This week my photograph is of hay that was harvested last November. I have used a black and white filter from Topaz Lab, just to add some drama.

Quotography – Page 13

Welcome to  “Quotography”. The rules are simple, a Title will be suggested and you will match a quote to a photograph. From time to time a quote maybe suggested. It is okay to edit your photograph with textures and filters, but please do not alter the photograph so that it is unrecognisable.

HOW IT WORKS

1. Find a a picture, or a quote to match the weekly prompt. The photograph must be taken by yourself.

2. Give credit to the quote when possible.

3. Put a link or the button in your post so other know what you are joining in on.

4. Link up here.

5. Take a moment to view other entries

As I live in Australia with a time difference I will schedule the posts for Sunday New York time.
The link is a little different because I use wordpress.com, just click on the link and follow the prompts.

This week I chose the theme is “Page 13 of a fairy story”,  The story I chose is called “Morg” by Clare Reddaway, the story set in the Iron Age. My photograph was taken of the Pinneberg River during our trip to Germany 2011.  I have played in PSE12 and Topaz Lab to create a slight painterly look to the image.  Next week our theme is “Harvest”,  I look forward to seeing your photographs and quotes.

Page 13

The path became muddy. Morg squelched on, trying to keep to the firm grass hillocks, jumping from tussock to tussock. Her shoes were made of thin leather, and they were soon soaked. The path had disappeared into a bog. Morg hesitated and looked around…. T

I mustn’t lose courage now, thought Morg. If I do, I’ll never get home. Clutching the piglet with renewed determination, she took a leap onto a patch of grass. Soon, she was through the trees and she was right. There was a clearing. Best of all, from the clearing she could see her hill, rising tall and black above the forest. Morg nearly sobbed with relief.

This week the theme is “Stars”, I have chosen the star shape in my flower.  Next week our theme is “Darkness”,  I realize that I may be repeating myself, so there is a second choice choose page 13 in a children’s book and arrange your photograph around that quote,I look forward to seeing your photographs and quotes.
