The Lens-Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Ann-Christine.
Per A-C: “…small surprises usually occur in our everyday life. It could be surprising meetings, incidents, or maybe eye openers. In fact anything you feel surprises you!”
My MacBook Photos library has a rudimentary search function, which I sometimes use to start on a challenge, as I have thousands of hugely inconsequential personal photos through which to dredge. I plugged in ‘surprise’ and what to my wondering eyes should appear? NOTHING! SURPRISE! Why am I not. (Surprised.) The subtle nuances of human reactions have yet to be discernible by artificial intelligence. Or real, often, for that matter. Regardless, that leaves me to be ‘makin’ it up’ this challenge.
For starters, Google Art has a way of converting photos to the styles of famous artists. These conversions may well express my sentiment during self-isolation. You be the judge.
Van Gogh is a personal favorite, just because I like Van Gogh. At least I have my ears attached, and they will remain so.
Signac I find a bit pointless (not), if you catch my drift.
Munch is probably the most accurate. Mr. Grumpy, I can easily call myself. ‘The Scream’ is definitely my most used emoji when texting: 😱
Stay safe, be well. Be kind to one another. 😷 👏 👍
Kudos to the tireless leaders of the weekly Lens-Artists challenge.
