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:

OMG! WHAT!? A DD!?? Oh My Goodness Alpaca Lord :faint: ThankYouThankYouThankYouThankYouThankYou! =LadyofGaerdon and ^3wyl, you two are the Loviest people on the planet for me right now! :love: :hug: :tighthug:
Ohhhhhh Meeeeeeeen!!! I'm dying of eternal love right now :love:

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 )
:iconvoiceless-song:
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?
What do you think?

I will never forgave myself for not thinking about that before posting it T_T.

Still it's so funny and lame...now everytime I look at this I cannot stop myself from laughing at how stupid it should have looked to all you english-speakers people :XD:

I had a different interpretation, and I like that both mine and the explanation you gave both read so clearly. I thought of it like "swallowing your regrets," like you're pushing them down and trying to forget them. Very clever and well-executed photos. :)

Thank you so much for your words. You're explanation was also on my mind while creating this picture but as I was working on my theme challenge and I was working around the theme "words", the 'swallowing your own words' seemed more suitable for it!
But thanks for expressing your point of view :) I really appreciate it :heart:

This is a really beautiful picture! I absolutely love the concept, and something in the tone of the pictures is moody yet straightforward. It makes me think of one of my favorite songs, Shake It Out by Florence + The Machine. Wonderful ^^ (I enclosed lyrics below because I couldn't resist)

Regrets collect like old friends
Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way, I can see no way
And all of the ghouls come out to play
And every demon wants his pond of fish
But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issue strong
It's always darkest before the dawn

And thank you so very very much for your lovely words. And that song is probably one of my absolute favourites of Florence! Actually I was hearing it all the way through while I postprocessed this!:dance: wow! It's so extrange and sweet that you thought about it when seeing my picture *_* :heart:

LOL a lot of people who do speak English seem to have never heard of egrets. When they see one, they think it's a crane or a heron. :D
