I found this blog on tumblr a bit ago: Five Hours Of. These two photographers shoot complimentary photos back and forth. One shoots first, the other responds. I found it to be a really cool idea, so I started doing it with a fellow photographer that lives in Vegas.
We’d been shooting back and forth for a bit when he sent me this photo to respond to.
Are we kidding me? How am I supposed to respond to that? In Potsdam?!
Then I find this photo on flickr (or one very similar to this.) And the wheels start turning.
Which is why I learned how to make a boat out of newspaper.
I wanted to float the paper boats in the fountain, but upon getting to the fountain, I realized just how very fast the water was moving and that I would never be able to reclaim the boats if I set them loose. And breaking a fountain was not on my to do list for the day.
So instead, I placed them in front of the fountain, thinking I would photoshop them into the water since the lighting would be the same. But after seeing the final image, I kinda liked the result with them sitting on the dirt.
That’ll do. (Click on the photo for more photo pairings.)
