From the starting point, the first thing I did was to look at it from different angles to see what I could do with it. Then I saw an H but I noticed that the third line was too high up for any other letters but not for an exclamation mark so I drew that. The question mark was added because I want more to it but also keeping the simplicity. After taking the picture, I decided to explore for with it and found out I like it more when it’s flipped upside down.

The foreground in this art piece or photograph stands outs. From first glance all it is simple green grass. Its not so simple though, the grass brings out color in the photo and correlates with the background and helps the image overall and background. Showing contrast and layers of contrast throughout the photo. The background is foggy air with a bridge behind it (that u can see through the mist). The main subject of the subject is a black male wearing a bright shirt sitting on a bike. He positioned right in the middle of the bridge and is covering a tree u can see in the background only by a little bit. Being a very old picture the texture is very grainy, its not very clear due to technology/camera that was used in the 1960s. The motion the male is presenting and the overall picture presents is stiff and neural . There’s is no emotions in the males face and is posture and the way his body is positioned on the bike is stiff. One of the project Ive done n Graphic design principles 1 was project 3 SelfieMotion. In one of the beginning steps for the project we had to take a selfie presenting a emotion in front of a white bland background. Seeing this photo the differences was plentiful. My face showed my expression and the way my body was positioned made it look like I was ready and excited to take this picture. The male in the photo looked like he didn’t want to be there and somewhat sad. Just an expressionless face.
