The term Milky Way is a translation of the Latin via lactea, from the Greek γαλαξίας κύκλος (galaxías kýklos, “milky circle”). From Earth, the Milky Way appears as a band because its disk-shaped structure is viewed from within. Galileo Galilei first resolved the band of light into individual stars with his telescope in 1610. Until the early 1920s, most astronomers thought that the Milky Way contained all the stars in the Universe. Following the 1920 Great Debate between the astronomers Harlow Shapley and Heber Curtis, observations by Edwin Hubble showed that the Milky Way is just one of many galaxies. The Milky Way is a barred spiral galaxy with a diameter between 150,000 and 200,000 light-years (ly). It is estimated to contain 100–400 billion stars. There are probably at least 100 billion planets in the Milky Way. The Solar System is located within the disk, 26,490 (± 100) light-years from the Galactic Center, on the inner edge of the Orion Arm, one of the spiral-shaped concentrations of gas and dust. The stars in the innermost 10,000 light-years form a bulge and one or more bars that radiate from the bulge. The galactic center is an intense radio source known as Sagittarius A*, likely a supermassive black hole of 4.100 (± 0.034) million solar masses.

Influence:

Wynn Bullock

My need to design very dark shades of grey, is inherently within me already, as I love the use of very contrasty Back and White imagery. However, if one Photographer has influenced me with regards to the use of very contrasty Black and White Photography, it would probably be Wynn Bullock (April 18, 1902 – November 16, 1975), who used the effect of very contrasty imagery with much success.

⊙How I Organize and Keep Track of My Already Used Image Files!

I used to think I was organized. I must have been lying to myself just to make myself feel better about, 1) My lack of good organization systems; or, 2) My chaotic memory….Or…Both.

■ The problem with having a bad organization system for your photography files.

If you lack organization with your photo files, you may not know which photo files you have worked with, which have been edited, which have been used already, and those you wanted to delete.

● A Solution — My Solution, in Steps:

  1. I download files from my camera SD card into one general folder on my device SD card.
  2. Since I deleted most files I wanted to delete already, in camera, while doing my RAW conversions, I can start moving individual photos to specific folders; for example, “Cloud Art”, “ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM”, etc.
  3. I organize my photos alphabetically, so when I choose to design a new art piece, I usually start with the first one in the folder.
  4. I rename the file and add the label, “Orig” for original, so I know it is Edit A in my Naming System.
  5. After I do all of my design work to my art piece, and have loaded the new artwork to my http://nawfalnur.imagekind.com/ web gallery, and have added it to a new photo blog post, I can now relocate the “Orig” file and my new artwork file, to an offsite cloud server.
  6. I may also make a copy and put the files on an extra hard drive.
  7. When I make sure the finished artwork files have all been removed from my device SD card, then I don’t need to remember later, if I have worked with the files already, and it saves device SD card space also.

That is my method of working with new photo files and organizing them. I need to do this, or, it would make my Photography Life even more chaotic than it needs to be.

Das Feuer ist außer Kontrolle Abstract Fire Photography

Title: “Das Feuer ist außer Kontrolle.”

Creation Date : 23 November 18″.

(The blog title does not accept the special German character (ß), ‘the Sharp S’ sound, character. Instead, WP replaced it with ‘ss’, which I believe is wrong. WP did something ridiculous here….strange). There is nothing I know to do to fix this, my apologies to German speakers.

Series: Abstract Fire Photography.

Imagekind Photo #: 2,438

Artist’s Note: I do not speak German, so I depended on Collins Dictionary translator, and Google Translate, to get the closest in German, to what I wanted for the title: “The Fire is out of control.”

Why did I not use English for the title? Because I didn’t want to.

Personal Note: My Grandmother was German, and spoke German fluently. However, I think that many German immigrants living in America, from the early 1900s, did not want their children and grandchildren to speak German. The reason being, because of tensions with Germany, due to WWI and WWII. It was safer for Germans in America to blend into American society as seamlessly as possible. Nevertheless, she did speak and sing songs in German at home, and I remember that very well. I only wish I had paid more attention to her speaking German.

I’m Living Technology Hell! My Tablet has decided that it does not want to work anymore: The Charging Socket is Spoilt

Hello blogging friends. I may be away for awhile, NOT BY CHOICE!

I’m Living Technology Hell!

My Tablet has decided that it does not want to work anymore: The Charging Socket is spoilt, I think. My cables and charger are in perfect condition and new.

Thus, IF I can’t figure out something soon, as my Battery is at 24%, and charging is in the negative mA’s.

☆If my Tab dies, that is it, I am Royally Fucķëď! I do all my work on my Tab, so if it STOPS working, it is total bullocks! I will be forced to STOP working too—editing and designing Art Photographs will stop too.

For I am screwed!


♡ If anyone want to contribute to the New Technology Fund for Nawfal, hey, that would be awesome. I’ve been blogging for at least 11 years, and have tried and done my best to give my subscribers good, interesting, and beautiful content—at least I hope my subscribers see it the same way.


☆ 23% now. Great, it is so awesome to know the exact time that your technology will screw you over.

Oh well….I’ll be back as soon as possible. Perhaps a phone repair shop can do something about the charging input socket, but I don’t know about that.

See you soon, I hope!

Rock Abstract in Shades of Blue and Grey, #1, Environmental Still Life

Title: “Rock Abstract in Shades of Blue and Grey, #1” *

Creation Date: 20 October 2018.
* This is a re-edited photograph from the original, which was photographed in 2016. This one has more vibrancy than the original photograph, especially in the blue tones of the stones. There is also an aquamarine tone in the rocks, but how freaking long of a title do I want, ANYWAY!?!

When You Become Uninspired!

Yes, I have become rather uninspired at the moment.

I am truly having difficulty feeling good about Creating and Designing NEW Art Photography! Don’t worry, I am not alone. At some point I think that most Creative’s will reach a horrible stretch in their creative lives where the main question they ask themselves is, “Why?”

I am asking myself that question, “Why?”

☆ There must be some overwhelming drive to make an Artist keep creating new artwork. When that ‘Driving Force’ becomes stalled in space, so to speak, inertia sets in and it leads to “Why?”

I believe that Without Inspiration, an Artist will find it very difficult to honestly create artworks they are proud of, and that joy to exhibit those new artworks, fades away.

The ‘Driving Force’ will return — The Joy will Return in Time.

■ “A body at rest will remain at rest until it is acted upon by an external force!”

I believe that Physics law is true for Artists who are in a creative rut: it will take some external force to nudge them, to get the momentum and creativity rolling again.

The External Force:

  1. It could be as simple as Seeing Something with Fresh Eyes.
  2. It could be help and encouragement from a fellow Artist.
  3. It could be a supportive comment from someone who admires the Artist’s work.
  4. It could be travelling to a new environment to liven the soul.
  5. It could be a sale of the Artist’s work.
  6. It could be the prospect and looking forward to an upcoming exhibition.
  7. It could be many, many things.

☆ Positive ‘External Forces’ can have a huge positive impact on an Artist who has become uninspired, become stuck in a creative rut, or even become strangled and stressed out with bad personal news to the point that the mind is overwhelmed to the point that it cannot concentrate on being creative….it can happen…and it has happened to me—now.

I am constantly thinking of ways to get back to being my creative self, but some personal roadblocks must be cleared first, and I am one who needs Positive ‘External Forces’ when things become overwhelmingly stressful.

I have no solutions, yet, but I will, I just need time to sort things out.

I don’t know if my Art Photography truly inspires anyone — I really hope I am, or, my work is of some inspiration to someone. I would like to believe that in some small way, at least, my Art Photography has added some artistic life to the Universe’s overall artistic ocean. ~ I said that. ~

That is all for now. More Art Photography is coming soon.

SERIES DESCRIPTION:

I came up with the name for this series, FROM ROUGH TO SMOOTH, after closely observing my Abstract Paintings. I realized that the cotton canvas underneath the paint, is actually a little rough to the touch. However, once the acrylic or enamel paint is applied, and a protective clear coating is painted on top of the paint, the surface has become smooth. And thus, that is how I came up with this Series of Ambidextrous (Rorschach) Abstract Expressionism Photography artworks.
In addition, this series has an oddity to the artwork Numbering because I’m not sure where some pieces are—some may have been lost in a hard drive crash. Thus, the first artwork in this series is No4, so be assured that you are not imagining things. In addition, there is a big jump in the series from No12 to No20. I just arbitrarily named 20, 20, because I did not want to accidentally give another artwork in this series, the same number: Jumping ahead in the numbering to 20, seemed like a safe jump in the numbering system of this series. Perchance, one day, maybe I will find the missing artworks in the series, but at this time, where the missing pieces are, is a mystery.
