Mobile Photography & Art – Flickr Group Showcase – 1 July 2018

The Big Picture’ is an idiom we use for a number of expressions. As a noun, it may mean the overall scheme of something important, as opposed to the significant details. As an adjective it can be used to describe a scheme, such as ‘these are big picture projections, we’ll sort the details out later”. We also use it informally in conversation, such as one I was having with my eldest son this morning over breakfast, (he’s home from university). He was explaining, rather alarming to me how at a nightclub last night, he narrowly avoided being stabbed because of his ability to ‘see the big picture’ and managed to diffuse the rising tensions among some of the locals and the group he was with. I preferably prefer to examine ‘the big picture’ when considering a photograph of great significance and in this weeks’ flickr group showcase, you will see a vast number of ‘big pictures’. There’s the poetically enigmatic, imbuing the quotidian with luminous alluring images and there’s the more low key, almost conversational style of images in this weeks showcase. Feel the energy and their vibrations, with the subtlest of shifts as one slide dissolves and the next emerges, representing a small gem of close observation and collaboration. Enjoy!

“Individuals often withhold help because they are uncertain about whether beneficiaries will appreciate their assistance. Expressions of gratitude can signify that a beneficiary values, needs, and accepts one’s assistance. Previous research has shown that grateful feelings enable people to savour positive experiences, cope with stress, and strengthen social relationships. A disposition toward gratitude is also associated with higher levels of subjective well-being, demonstrating that counting one’s blessings can increase positive emotions and health”, Francis Flynn, Professor of Organisational Behaviour at Stanford. Appreciation is one of life’s great motivators, when we take the time to let people know that we value them, it naturally inspires them to continue doing even more. Gratitude is the ultimate gift that keeps on giving and I hope you all realise that each image you create, and each artist that we feature, enables this process to multiply. Emotions can cloud our judgements and influence our decisions when triggered by a situation at hand, it is of course also possible for emotions triggered by one event to spill over and affect another, unrelated situation. Here at TheAppWhisperer HQ, we are well versed in this, ‘linger longer’ as our dear friend and artist Carolyn Hall Young advocated throughout her life. We each have a choice in our decisions, however complex, objectively and thoroughly. This weeks Mobile Photography and Art showcase is bursting with high end creativity. “Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose”, Steve Jobs. For many of us who have stared death in the face too many times, it is important to remember disinhibition can be a good thing, sometimes feeling anonymous frees some people to be dishonest, for others, it frees them to perform at their very best.
