Eat Your Own Words by starg691 Eat Your Own Words by starg691
Theme 80/100 - Words

Sometimes you aim for words to be said. Just like as if they were magic and could change everything. And then there are those moment that you just wish you could eat your own words and start again on a blank page.

I feel like this is a bit deppresing image to start the year with, but I just feel the need of shooting and my 100 themes challenge was the perfect option to start the year thinking about photography.
HAPPY 2013 TO ALL OF YOU!! :party: :party: :dance: :dance:

Daily Deviation

Given 2013-01-16
Eat Your Own Words by *starg691 is a clever piece that gets the message across powerfully, from first looking at the top piece to looking at the second. Presentation in both photographs is great, the depth of field shallow enough for us to focus on what is profoundly being portrayed to us. ( Suggested by LadyofGaerdon and Featured by 3wyl )
A meaningful photo with dynamic idea and carefull chosen details.

Through the shot, we can feel a little part of the photographer's personality: a bit necessarily 'choosy'. Though the materials used are not at all label-designed, it is not as easy as picking up randomly something in the shop to creat such a brilliant contrast. The plate and the utensils, the table and the shirt; when put together, they give viewers a gentle yet needed annoyance - a useful addition helping convey the message. The tiny well-placed signature and the beautiful lips of the model are nice bonuses that keep the annoyance at a pleasing level.
The word 'regrets' is an excellent choice, in my opinion. Regret(s) is not an easy thing to chew and devour, but nobody can avoid tasting and (HAVE to) try to digest it. What an annoyance!
Please remember there's an 's', and the artist, playfully, sets it upside-down - an effective emphasis!
It's a pity that the lighting is a little weak and pale. And the name of the artwork, honestly, cannot keep up with the stories behind the shot; it's only capable of giving viewers ONE 'thinking direction', while the lips is telling us not only 'eat' but also 'kiss', 'spit', for example.

Have you all find the word(s) you want to try eating, my dear readers?
