From the photojournalling online class I'm taking from LK Ludwig. It was a bit hard to start but now I seem to be getting more into it. Here are some pages...
The first is a single page spread, using black and white photos on glossy paper and scratching into it with a heavy duty needle (for sewing leather so it's heavy and 3-sided), then adding words here and there.
The second is a double page spread. Brushed black acrylic gesso on the left side and, when that dried, took regular gel pens and wrote some things that came to mind when thinking about the 3 photos I'd chosen so far.
The themes were Resonate and Echo so you can see those words dropped in here and there. And, yes, that is me on a pony. A man brought this pony around our neighborhood and, for a price, a kid could wear the cowboy get-up and take a very short ride on the pony and then he'd take a photo, which Mom and Dad would buy. Since we had very little money, I'm surprised that both I and my brother were allowed to do this - and I still have the photos.
The next theme is Travel and I've begun on that for the next few pages which I'll share later...
"When I grow up, I want a pony.
I'm gonna ride her from dusk 'til dawn.
I'll brush her mane
and feed her sugar cane
and keep her in safe from the storm.
If I had a pony
I wonder, could I be your girl?"
