I’m finally getting around to share my latest Polaroid Pogo series. As you can see I’ve been working on it since the magnolia was in bloom.
At the beginning of spring when nature’s fleeting blossoms were all around, I was so inspired to start this series. After shooting some of my favorites like the forsythia I realized that just the golden flowers weren’t enough. I remembered the Found Art Tuesday “time to grow” piece and my last Polaroid pogo images, and wished there was some way to use my box of pin letters. I finally got the idea of using a branch to attach the letters, but I still was stuck on what words to use. I was so inspired by spring, and how everything is green and new and like that it came to me… fresh, everything is fresh. But fresh also has another connotation, in modern slang and terminology, Fresh is “COOL”. Aha! My next series would be beautiful images from nature juxtaposed by modern culture and design! Matt keeps singing Outkast’s So Fresh and so Clean, and I have to admit it was in my head when I made the magnolia piece.
I really love this series.
Currently I have four images in this series. The words So Fresh over magnolia blossoms, shown above.
The word awesome over new growth grass. Everyone knows how much I love grass and this picture was taken before the lawn was mowed for the first time this spring. It was so lush and green, ahhhh!
The word tight over a well manicured bush. The sky was perfect for this shot with one single little cloud.
and lastly, the word Sweet over damp earth and luscious green moss.
These petite and affordable prints are all currently available in my etsy shop. Click on any of the above images to find out more about them.
