Rudaí23 - Winter
Rudaí 23 (23Things) is being administered by members of the Western Regional Section of the Library Association of Ireland.
I found this lovely photo of an olive grove in the Creative Commons image bank, Pixabay. I was looking for something fun, like creative representations of the number 23, but decided on something moody. There were a lot of beautiful B&W photos of trees - they must be popular. Then I headed over to Flickr, and made an account for my professional life, where I changed the header photo, and then looked around. A lot has changed in the last 10 years at Flickr, there are a lot more snapshots than artistic photographs.
Selecting a visual for a project, or post, that reflects the feeling or idea I'm trying to convey is an enjoyable process that allows me to be creative and also requires that I go through some trial and error. Usually, I place the photo in, try some different placements within the post/project, and gauge what looks or feels best, where the photo can best match up with the text. For the photo above, because of its panoramic-ness, it seemed better suited at the top, as an introduction, and I selected it because it is expansive, and has depth - I wonder what is beyond, and how far I might wander unimpeded if I were there.
