Re-creation

“After Thanksgiving dinner, our family is known to play some cards. One particular card game we play is called ’31’. In this game, you’re given four ‘lives’ and the last player alive wins. Because my brother stores his wine cork collection in close proximity to his cards, the corks often become the life counters. Over the course of this game, as players slowly got eliminated, I re-created this first wonder of the world. This was my first sheani photo taken with an iPhone 6 — pretty impressive quality.” –B

Before we delve into my photo blurb below, I’d like to add that I won that game of 31. :)

I am often impressed by some of the photographers that I follow on Instagram, especially the talented Brock Davis. He creates pieces of art by transforming ordinary items into something else entirely. Brent and I are both consistently inspired by his work and thus, I decided to draw creativity from Brock’s art by creating a little nest from dried flowers and painting several jelly beans into mini eggs. I placed the little nest onto a plant in the apartment. I have a whole new appreciation for the tedious work of nest-building. It was not easy, but it was definitely a lot of fun.

I guess we’ve been on kind of a movie binge lately, perhaps that is why Brent decided to choose a topic:

Movies and TV – recreate a scene from a movie or TV episode.

Any actors out there that wanna help me out?
