LMAC has launched the fall contest season with a stunning gallery of collages. Please take a look at the winners from last week here. Today @shaka presents another template photo, and the contest begins anew. Check out the rules for entry and the amazing template picture here. I just saw it. Wow!
An important part of the LMAC collage contest is our image library, #LIL. A dedicated website is under development. Take a look at it here. A beautiful thing to behold. We have a rich index of copyright-free images, all contributed by the LMAC community.
Rules governing LIL contributions may be found here.
My photos today are for the library. A couple of words about a few of them. The 'Man Walking was caught accidentally on camera while I was trying to snap a shot. He is related to me😇, and graciously consented to have his image used (no face, obviously). The Woman in a Red Sweatshirt was walking with me and I asked her to stop. I took her picture and that came out OK, I think. (Shown with her permission, of course).
I did not take the shot of the pool player, but she is part of the family, as is the photographer. They both gave me permission to use this rather cool image (I think it's cool, anyway). I hope you enjoy my pictures, and I hope they are useful to future collage makers. It tickles me to think the photos might appear in a work of art.
Thank you for reading my blog. Have fun!
