2048: Planting Asses: Duh Visual Story POV

Planting Asses 2048

Daily Create TDC1116
Play the 2048 Planting Asses Edition Game

Got some help from the #ds106 #noir106 community. I thought I could use my own images – but flickr wouldn’t register with the Create 2048. Mia came to rescue and passed on what she learned – SKOR!

The back story to the image choices is that my husband likes to visit antique and collectible malls to investigate history and see the origins of innovations we use today. To keep me occupied I chose vintage planters, mostly anything pulling a cart as the subject, to search for and find as well as research the origin and histories. Unlike him – I would purchase and now have a collection of approximately 115 planters. Yeah – sounds like a hoarder! I do try to display them tastefully on each side of the window in our office room.


Then I tried playing the game with no understanding. Got over 1200 points but don’t know why. I was trying to get as many of my pics to show as possible before doing the screen shot for the tdc1116. Took me 7 times to get enough visuals and not have the game end with the game obstructed by share options.

Moving on – I realized there is some method to this game and visually it could be several stepping stones to creating a feeling of accomplishment for the player by the images building a story or upon each other. DUH! Visual story – #ds106 – practice different methods in a daily create to inspire and stretch a more finished complete creation. Maybe another attempt in the future. This tdc1116 did what it was designed to do start me thinking more like a storyteller instead of just using a tool. This revelation came from viewing and trying some other submissions.

Have you ever just felt framed? I am working alongside some classes in ds106 by participating in the Open Course option. January 2015 has 3 sections with instructors in various locations and then a few of us in the Headless Open Course. The instructor led course sections  are taking a different slice and moving through the ds106 experience as “noir” and “noir film”. As I move thru the open course – I may take on some “noir” – once I figure out what it is and what it means. From some quick scans – I see hats and 1930-40’s film references. Somewhat inspired, until I figure out what it is – thought being framed and in hat and in amongst art seemed appropriate for this 2nd unit and the daily create.

TDC1108 Take a picture of you wearing something camouflage, camouflaging yourself in somewhere or anything that you see that is camouflage.

From my involvement in 365 and Daily Shoot – self portraits are like poison! But this challenge made it a little fun and easier to take a picture of myself. Thanks to Mia Boleis’ girafflage picture to get us started – it is so darn cute!!


Used my camera on continuous timed setting in order to get into place and get a few shots in a row. Sometime in the shoot, by focus went out and a few other things – hoping it is only the battery wearing down!

Stayed with the 10-20 minute rule on this one in order to begin to develop the habit and not make each day project productions. The variety is sure to keep the creative flow growing and add ideas to projects.
