Now Playing: the cardigans - my favourite game
Topic: divine diptychs
This week I was the one selecting themes, and being uber-nerdy, chose words that were homonyms: words with more than one meaning that are spelt and pronounced the same.
I gave myself and Ligeia the theme of game, and despite the variety of definitions, we both ended up choosing to depict the playing of a game. Admission: I already had in mind what my image would be before selecting the theme, as I felt with so many photos to edit from my road trip, taking something new might be a bit much! So I had already decided to use a self-portrait from Walhalla Cemetery where I look like I'm playing Hide'n'Seek.
Ligeia had toyed with ideas of Rubik's Cubes and chess, but having just gotten a super-cute little kitten, decided to photograph it at play.
She sent me two images which initially I thought wouldn't match very well with my image, but on placing the images together, I realised the brown tones from her image worked well with the browns in the left half of my image. I had originally paired the other image she sent me with mine, but on looking again at this image realised that myself and her kitty, Byron, are in somewhat similar poses and we made a nice mirror image together!
You can see the other images from Week 8 appearing on the Divine Diptych Project blog now.
