Every story is an abstraction. Start with reality, carve away the things that don't matter, and leave the things that do. the result is not the same as reality, but it always says more than reality does on its own.
AS SOON AS WE PUT A FRAME AROUND REALITY, WE tell A STORY. how we light, color and shadE that image deepens that story immensely.
I love Hipstamatic and Instagram. I almost always find something mundane in my surroundings that I can cut from reality, paint with a filter or two, and shape into a short story.
This is a small selection of things that caught my eye, became a story, and made it to instagram.
