This is an archived posting from my previous website “Chips Antidotal Wanderings” – a personal blog about family, creative moments, and pain management activities in my life. That blog was active from 2004-2011.

Boo's New Specs

What is it about a new shirt or a certain pair of jeans or that favorite shade of eye shadow, that makes a person feel just a little more special? More comfortable with themselves? Prettier? More confident maybe? I’m not sure what it is, but I can vouch for having those feelings myself sometimes. I have a navy blue dress jacket that I feel particularly smart in.

Our youngest daughter (Our Boo) is sporting a new pair of glasses this week and you know what? I think she has a fresh new air of confidence about her when she’s wearing them.

Triptych Fun

I decided to feature her in this little Triptych. FYI – a photo triptych is an artistic way of showing three photos together that tell a story or allow the viewer to make up a story of their own about the art piece.

Boo's Repeat Collage

This triptych shows a view of the photo slightly blurry, then one that’s focused, followed by an over exposed one. Think about when the optomistrist says, “Is is clearer with A or B, 1 or 2?” while he’s flipping through the lenses on his gizmo, trying to set the right prescription for you. Does the triptych open up a story for you now?

This is a fun photography art form that I enjoy every once in a great while. You can see more Triptychs at Flickr.  I have a few art-therapy triptychs too.  They are good to use in meditation to slow the pain sometimes.  😀  Maybe this would be a good idea for you to try as well?  Give it a go and point me to your Triptych creations.  I’d love to see them!
