I thought it might be a bit of fun to pop along to the banana and breadfruit festival at the Tahiti cultural centre. It was well advertised.
I remember with affection attending my local village fete. Arch rival allotment gardeners fought for the biggest marrow title, accusing each other of cheating. Not to mention the dramas over the cake and floral competitions.
Moving forward. On arrival at the banana and breadfruit festival, I noted that there was a paramedic on duty. She was surrounded by all the medical equipment including a defibrillator. Crikey this could mean war.
Create an image that represents being “a face in the crowd.” Explore silhouettes, shadows, orientation, and other ways to mask your subject. As you hide the defining characteristics of your model, notice which traits continue to stand out. Without facial expression, can you tell how someone is feeling? Without color, does your impression of that person change?
It’s always sad to see a reputable business go under the hammer.
Polite staff, selling luxury goods at the high end of the market.
Spare a thought for the dummies. Stripped of their dignity and some bearing job lot numbers.
Enthusiastic crowds eyed up a potential bargain. Others traipsed behind their partners, concerned about the effect the auction would have on their wallets.
Meanwhile the dummy ladies do their best to entice the punters in. The more money made at auction, the better the chance that the staff will be paid.
