Pictures for Pam, Day 102: Macro Monday: Company Logos

Pictures for Pam, Day 102: Macro Monday: Company Logos
(+14 insets!) (my apologies, I misunderstood the concept so I did the project twice!)

I woke up to another very light dusting of snow which melted quickly as the sun rose over the hills. It's been very cold today but bright and sunny. What a nice change from the dreary grey days we've been having lately!

In case you didn't notice, it's Macro Monday! This week's theme is "Advertising" and today I learned the lesson, "Understand the specific rules of a challenge." As in…I didn't. The rules state, "Advertising challenge: a branded product known in your country, so close that you hardly recognize it anymore. But if possible in such a way that you can guess it." I totally misunderstood. I thought the idea was to take a picture of advertising at a macro level.

With this in mind I got a bunch of pictures of advertising around the house. Then, for an interesting twist, I found some ads online which I then took pictures of so they would be macros. I was happy with what I came up with but something told me to look at the rules again. Which I did at 3pm on Monday. Oops.

Once I realized I misunderstood the directive I grabbed my camera and tried again. We're not supposed to say what the subject is so you'll just have to try to figure it out! I took pictures of three very well-known company logos, and a fourth one worked from my photo shoot yesterday. I'm also including all of my misunderstood pictures so you can see what I came up with originally! I hope you can stand all of the insets! :D

Pam, what did you do for your career? I am a graphic designer so the subject of "advertising" is burned into me. I hope you had a career that made you feel satisfied. Doing graphic design is really fun for me but only when I can stand behind what I'm involved in. Thankfully I have only worked for companies that essentially make people happy, which is a driving force in my life. Sending *BIG HUGGGGS* from southern Oregon!

IDID MY APPRENTISHIP AS A DENTAL TECHNICIAN... WENT ON TO MAKE GOLD AND SILVER JEWELRY (WHICH I DESIGNED) JEWELLERY.... DID MANY OTHER JOBS... ENDED UP AS A GARDENER /HANDYPERSON... APART FROM THE GOLDSMITHING THE GARDENING WAS THE ONLY THING I LOVED TOTALLY. I ALSO FOR SOME YEARS HAVE WORKED IN GRAPHICS.. AND THAT GIVES ME A HIGH DEGREE OF SATISFACTION. DESIGN AND CRAFTWORK IS IN MY BLOOD.

Damit hast du den Vogel abgeschossen, Janet. Damit ist gemeint: Du bist die Beste. Die Metapher kommt aus der Tradition der Schützenfeste, bei denen auf einen künstlichen Vogel geschossen wird. Wer den Vogel abschießt, ist Schützenkönig. Du bist also die Schützenkönigin.

These are incredible photos Janet - they are all beautiful. That main picture looks like it's a logo from a car - is it?

I trained as a Hydrographic/Cartographical Draughtsman and worked for the Ministry of Defense in London. That was in the late 60's and then after I had stopped working to have my children, I started working as a secretary to Chartered Surveyors. I stopped working about 20 years ago as I was medically retired - but that's another story. I was fascinated to hear that you are a Graphic Designer - with your eye for beauty and attention to detail, I'm not in the least surprised.

Those are an impressive set of PiPs, Janet. I'll take a guess that the main image is a car bonnet badge, but I shan't try to guess which! :-)
