The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
Dont quite understand the art but think i saw a lady and a cow?;pHappy WW!
That looks quite freaky to me whatever that is :P
My guess: Overhead shot of a woman at the shore, just at the edge of the waterline. Looks like maybe she got caught by a wave she wasn't expecting to come up so high.
What is this?
This is really neat! It looks like a blown up newspaper photo, where you get all those rough pixels. Hmm... wonder what the headlines would be to accompany this photo???Well done!!
I can see a woman walking on the sand. Am I right?Happy WW.
Definitely freaky looking! I like :)Happy WW and thanks for visiting :)
It's a still from the very eerie and brilliant 60s horror film Carnival of Souls, I believe. It's well worth a look if your taste runs to unusual and atmospheric horror cinema.
That's so interesting. At first I thought it was a photograph of someone on the beach and then I realized it was canvas.
I like all the speculation ;). Thanks for sharing!
Little girl in the waves!
I thought it was something creepy, but when I looked really close, it's a girl on a shore.
Thanks everyone. The exhibition had a screen showing clips from apocalyptic and eerie films. I took a few shots and I sort of like dthis one.Egg you are quite right!
Very "decisive moment."
It looks kinda haunting to me :)
Great shot. I had to look twice but now I see the little girl in the water. I wasnt sure what she was doing at first. Happy WW:)
A different shot again!You always have us thinking!Happy WW! :)
Looks like an old woman on a snow-covered ground to me but of course, I read your explanation :)
Wow, this is really interesting!Happy WW!
That's a beautiful print, it has both the apocalyptic qualities but also a serenity to it. And the grainy texture adds to both effects.it's not technically part of WW, but you might like the Dystopia photo exhibit I reviewed this weekend.http://www.ptank.com/blog/2009/02/first-thursday-and-mission-arts-performance-project/
It does look scary, not knwoing what is happening to the woman.Happy WW!
interesting! does look creepy. would love to watch the film!happy WW
Yes, very 'odd', and yet... there is a certain 'something' about it. Very interesting, Jams.
Is that a special exposition ? I only see an old woman, I am not even sure it's a painting. Anyway nothing for my living room, lol !BTW Kim hadn't her hair cut (poor thing) but brushed ! All this fur laying on the floor came out by brushing ! She never lets me do it myself. She is very shy.
For some reason that picture brings to mind the horror movie The Ring. Would love to see it in person.
I'm guessing she's walking at the edge of the water, but it sure looks as if she's floating.Very cool.
Neat shot, Jams.
Cool shot! I'd love to go to tate someday.
I'm not sure about the explanation behind this shot but it's intriguing.
little girl in dress walking at the shore..hope you can check out minehttp://www.inthespiritofdance.com/2009/02/wordless-wednesday-no-18-alone.htmlHappy WW!
I like how the wave seems to be going uphill. Rather disorienting.
Very haunting. Looks like a terrible scene from a war zone.
