the digiart is moving

Moving as in the suggested theme for PhotArt Friday this week – not any other kind of moving.  When I saw this suggestion from Bonnie my immediate idea was to use some (not very good) photos that I had taken of my TV when then 100m race from the Olympics was showing – Bolt and co really are moving.

But then I also wanted to play with a partial blurring technique that I saw on blogland (and now can’t remember where).

The original photo is of a theatre group (Oxford University Dramatic Society) trying to drum up business during the Fringe Festival – it worked as we went to see it and thought they were fabulous.

So whether you are doing the moving or it feels like the world around you is moving – have a great weekend. I’ll be doing some moving – over 8 000 km in a plane.

Have a safe trip!

You have given me something to think about today. I'm feeling in a calm kind of mood, but I can hear a lot of heavy traffic noise outisde

Well these are quite creative and so different from each other. . That last one really stood out. You did a great job conveying movement in both pieces.
