Speaking Numbers

I’ve made this photo collage for this week Three Muses challenge: Numbers. It was really a challenge because we don’t have a good relationship at all, I mean, me and numbers.

So, I pick this Nathanael West (writer, 1903-1940) quote, a bunch of numbers graphics from Google Search, which I altered and cut like cartoon balloons, and this beautiful old photo I had already (sorry, I don’t know where it came from) and voilá.

WrightStuff asked me about Gimp (yes, it’s a weird name). I did all my stuff using it and have no complaints. I choose it because Photoshop and all these licensed softwares are pretty expensive here in Brazil. As I’m a beginner why not try free software that has good references?

I live in Brasília and we didn't have even a raindrop in 104 days. Weather people say we will have to wait a little more. I know, it's boring to talk about weather, but I can't BREATHE!

  2. I like the contrast of color with the beautiful vintage black and white photo. Very effective. AND, I sympathize with your longing for rain. We have had a long dry spell here too, and I'm waiting for a rainy day!

  3. I love this very creative entry- wonderful and colorful use of numbers here!

  4. Your relationship with numbers may not be your best asset BUT your relationship with GIMP and your own creativity has ensured you have created something wonderful. Bravo.

    PS, I will send you rain from the UK if you promise to send sunshine to me. We haven't had much of it this year and I feel left out!

  5. Wow this is great.
    Fantastic idea. Wonderful work.

  6. A fabulous piece - it make me want to eavesdrop! Hope you get rain soon - you can have some of ours if you want!!

  7. Great interpretation of the theme. I love this one
    Hugs from June x
