Stephen McMennamy est photographe mais il ne se contente pas seulement de prendre des objets ou des paysages, il les mélange les uns aux autres pour jouer avec les échelles et créer de très chouettes mashups aussi absurdes que plaisants à regarder.
cup and straw + water tower. not a ton of water tower options in Atlanta, but I found this one (without chick-fil-a cows on it). an APD officer was kind enough to let me take the drone up to get this shot. oh and kids are kinda gross right? more #combophoto's ?? here. #watertower #straw #weloveatl #vscocam #combophotos
cardboard box + the "ice cube" ?? #tbt on a few levels. the structure is the Georgia archives building (built in 1965) and was designed by A. Thomas Bradbury. Google "georgia archives building" to learn more, but the headline is, the city plans to demolish it once it has the money to do so. BONUS MORSEL... my dad isn't on Instagram, but I'll show him a #combophoto from time to time. I asked if he recognized the building and he said, "yes, your grandfather was friends with the architect." which then unlocked even more enlightening old timey informational Atlanta nuggets about my grandfather and the cool stuff he bore witness to as this city was getting its architectural act together (though these men started their friendship at Lockheed in California). whatever, it's all pretty trippy and time is a flat circle and so on and so forth. DOUBLE BONUS... shot this with the drone on a windy ass sunny day, way back when we had sun in #Atlanta. ??? #weloveatl #box #architecture #drone #vscocam #combophotos
ice cream (+sprinkles) + front loader ?? this one was tricky and really numbing, but only because I had to pop the ice cream shot in the cold. in this case, the coldest day of the year. I lucked out with 14° at shoot time (and blue sky). all sorts of respect for the @chrisburkard's of the world for constantly capturing amazing images in the freezing cold. shooting when you can't feel your hands was a whole new challenge. double tip of the cap to the food stylists that deal with ice cream. not easy. a little learning moment over at @combophotofail. more #combophoto's ?? here. #icecream #truck #sprinkles #cold #vscocam #combophotos
winter + summer ??? though it isn't officially summer yet, it's officially hot as hell in Atlanta. so here's a little #tbt to the cooler months. thank you @erriemarie and @gnarguin for helping me get this shot during my last visit to @whistlerblacomb. and a big thanks to my youngest for her exceptional hand modeling skills. more #combophoto's ?? here. #ComboPhotos
UPDATE: as most of you saw when this was originally posted, I put it to a vote between two different plane tails. the results are posted over at @combophotofail. thanks again to all that participated. seagull + airplane the seagull was taken on the Santa Monica pier and the airplane (I think it's a MD90 or MD88) was taken at the Hertz rental car return lot at LAX. both locations have pretty great vantage points if you're looking to capture the undercarriage of flying animals or machines. more #combophoto's ?? here. #vscocam #seagull #airplane #MD90 #MD88 #avgeek #layout #combophotos
. hotdog + telehandler (aka: big forklift)? special thanks to Jose Santillan for his convincing performance of befuddlement over a giant invisible hotdog. actually I just asked him to "look up" and he pretty much brought his own magic to the party from there. and props to the construction foreman for the use of one of his many heavy equipment props (and that wall). more #combophoto's ?? here. #combophotos
crab leg + excavator ? I could've hung around and watched this thing move dirt for hours, but instead I went to #publix and bought a crab leg. a shout-out to the excavator operator, who was kind enough to help me get this shot. more #combophoto's ?? here. #diptych #crableg #seafood #construction #excavator #vsco #vscocam #combophotos
drink umbrella + beach umbrella.?? I'll lay off umbrellas after this. a big thank you to @asdzxc1986 and @jfigman for helping me out on this one. when I ran into these two they'd just rolled in to LA after a 15 hour plane ride from the Ukraine. (and during our brief conversation about @instagram Dmitriy and I quickly discovered we both follow @twheat. Ukraine/Atlanta/LA... I dig that.) more #combophoto's ?? here. #combophotos
Surprenant non ?
