I love to travel, and although I haven’t been able to as of late, I can still appreciate the beauty of the world through photographs the many talented photographers throughout the world provide us with.

Yes, I do have a thing for beauty, and yes I do have a thing for beauty outside of the fetish and erotic communities. I find it in many things, and hot on the heels of my post A Change of Seasons for Sexy This Week, a friend in a little note also expressed the same interest. A friend in Scotland, a place I’ve never been, but do plan on going.

Introducing Crannog Photographic, for the Wild and Wondrous portion of Wacky Wednesday. A Glasgow based photographer specializing mainly in Landscape/cityscapes and Urbex subject matter as well as the natural world, events and individual portraiture. Photographic works that are dramatic and colourful, detailed and clear, drawing the viewer into an ethereal visual of the Scottish highlands and lowlands, cityscapes.

I love old world landscapes that stand timeless within a changing world. Landscapes that go on forever to the horizon and beyond with rolling hills and running streams that pass under ancient stone bridges still traversed by vehicle and animal. Water, and lots if it, canals, rivers, lakes, and lochs, serene and endless.

Cityscapes that during the day display a unique meld of old and new architecture for growing populations. Evening shots lit as though they are the back drop for a sci-fi movie. 

Urbex, the exploration of man-made structures, usually abandoned ruins, photographically explored as nature begins it’s reclamation process.   

Graffiti, ruins, old world architecture, and a land far away. You be the judge.wacky wednesday-crannog-photographic-City-Lights

Wacky Wednesday: Matt Crump’s Rich Pastel Photographic Manipulations

matt_crump_wacky_wednesday_1

Most folks shy away from the use of pastels, especially men, however Matt Crump’s rich pastels photographic manipulations prove otherwise,  proof he has embraced the use of pastels and is producing some incredible works of art that are downright delicious.

Wikipedia describes; 

“Pastels or pastel colours are the family of colours which, when described in the HSV colour space, have high value and low to intermediate saturation. The name comes from pastels, art media characteristic of this colour family. The colours of this family are usually described as “soothing”,”soft”, “near neutral”, “milky”, “washed out”, “desaturated”, and lacking strong chromatic content.

Pink, mauve, and baby blue are typical pastel colours.”

Everyone knows I’m big on pink and pastels, and if you don’t, well now you do! I feel and believe there is so much strength in these types of colours that paired with black or other colours, shades, and tones of opposite value or slight variation on the colour wheel, they are downright sexy and awe inspiring.

Tentacles wrestle the sexual status quo; secret identity exposes itself; and the Empire is challenged by authentic expression, in a work that mixes whimsy, savage poetry, heartbreaking vulnerability and B-movie joy.

Actor/director and Alien Sex instigator David Bloom conspires to bring together an exciting and diverse team in a multi-genre, multi-generational feast, inciting new work by emerging local artists and unearthing rare and unexpected discoveries by established cultural luminaries.

The all-star cast features Vancouver genderqueer creators Olivia B (performance poet/tap dancer) and Floyd VB (performance poet/visual artist) propelled by the visceral and immutable life force of Taiko drummer Eileen Kage, composer/dancer/video artist Sammy Chien, actor/dancer/visual and performance artist Robert Leveroos, and photo-based artist SD Holman (of BUTCH: Not like the other girls).

Drawing upon energetic interpretations of the transgressive BDSM poet Linda Smukler/Samuel Ace and the divisive heterosexual playwright David Mamet, each of these artists individually transgresses the constraints of any single genre, while sparking a shared explosion of preconceptions, categories and labels.

Gay, lesbian, bi, queer, straight, vanilla, kinky and yet-to-be-named perspectives collide in a speculative fiction that fearlessly explores the strange, beautiful, and sometimes inexplicable territory of human sexuality.

Romantic, disturbing, passionate, and tender, this epic yet intimate collaborative project weaves together an original and contradictory collage by artists creating in words, images, movement, and sound.
