More on this critique and those questions on https://caritatblog.wordpress.com/2016/02/02/critique-of-a-dailycreate/.

1. What stands out the most when you first see it?
The blogpost that describes the making of the story.In the soundcloud I see the diagram of the sounds. The diagram is symmetric.
2. Explain the reason you notice the thing you mention in number 1.
The visual aspect of sound is meaningful to me as I am a musician. I do regard Soundcloud sounds as music.
3. As you keep looking, what else seems important?
As I am listening I hear a kind of music with a prelude, after the prelude a piece of music without peaks after that the center piece which is louder. Than I hear a reprise of the second part and the finale is again loud and has some peaks.
4. Why does the thing you mention in number 3 seem important.
I would like to hear some more peaks and surprises in the soundtrack.
5. How has contrast been used?
Contrast is almost not used.
6. What leads your eye around from place to place?
The text in the blog post helps to imagine the movie that could go with the soundtrack.
7. What tells you about the style used by this artist?
The artist seems to like an easy going kind of music.
8. What seems to be hiding in this composition and why?
The horse has a great role in this piece. Is it love for horses that lies under this composition?

It is peaceful and

A ride to town

Did I tell you I like the work I did critique?

 

Critique of a dailycreate.

This is a review of the dailycreate mentioned on the page of Kelly. The questions are copied from http://johnjohnston.info/106/my-way-to-the-west/. You should read that blog to understadn what fun it is to write a critique of a work in #ds106.  I did enjoy this review very much. I did watch with attention and that is great to do.

1. What stands out the most when you first see it?
The first thing that wants attention is the wagon. and the yellow of the grass

2. Explain the reason you notice the thing you mention in number 1.
The light is on that part of the image. the surrounded part is hardly visible its dark.

3. As you keep looking, what else seems important?
After seeing the window with the western view, I notice the walls around the window.

4. Why does the thing you mention in number 3 seem important.
I was surprised to see the walls. At first sight I did not see them.

5. How has contrast been used?
The contrast is light and dark. to me the contrast could have been a bit less extreme. But it takes some technical work to make a photo like that and find a balance in dark and ligth. (In GIMP I do use colors > curves) But using a flash light will help also.

6. What leads your eye around from place to place?
The central part is dominant and the painting on the wall leads the eye to the dark parts of the picture.

7. What tells you about the style used by this artist?
Maybe she likes contrasts? The contrast of the peaceful cart and the arrows in it seems to underline that.

8. What seems to be hiding in this composition and why?
A contrast between a safe in house life and the dangerous world outside?

9. Imagine the feelings and meanings this artwork represents?
The world has sunny spots and dark places?

10. What other titles could you give this artwork?
Safe in my room
The wild west is outside

I am really surprised. These questions do help te watch more attentive.

Digital storytelling?

My father did a lot of storytelling. He invented lots of stories. Walking in the woods with him, we asked for a story, he did his walking storytelling. When I grew older he told me he almost never knew the next part of the story. He had to invent it sometimes just seconds before telling the story. But he did also prepare  stories when at work.

Telling a story is like playing a game. The storyteller is capturing the listeners in a web of sentences and emotions. The story has its rules.  The listeners do engage in the story by bodily reactions, emotional signs.

Digital storytelling is not like the P2P emotional web of the story told face to face. It is more like writing a book.  Listeners or readers reactions (mostly) do not help shaping the story.

 

My name Caritat

Marie Jean Antoine Nicolas de Caritat, marquis de Condorcet  17 September 1743 – 28 March 1794), known as Nicolas de Condorcet, was a French philosopher, mathematician, and early political scientist.  Condorcet descended from the ancient family of Caritat.
My mother always told me we had a famous French name, but when I grew older my elder brother told me another story.
My mother was a foundling and nobody knew her name. She was taken care of by an elderly lady who named her Caritat because of  she being given to her. It is a Latin word meaning giving.
My mother did learn a lot of her new mother, who was a teacher in a Midwestern town. My mother went West with a bloke who was shot by some Injuns and that is why she became a teacher in the DS106 City.

Home on the range #western106 #ds106

Oh, give me the steed and the gun that I need
To shoot game for my own cabin home;
Then give me the camp where the fire is the lamp
And the wild Rocky Mountains to roam.

A home, a home
Where the deer and the antelope play,
There seldom is heard a discouraging word
And the sky is not cloudy all day.

o give my a 4 wheel drive  and the guns that I need
to shoot some neighbors  at will
then give me my media moment
and some victims to shoot and kill

an automatic big gun

1. Shoot to kill

Spaghetti Westerns are  characterized by the presence of more action and
violence than Hollywood Westerns. Also, the protagonists usually
act out of more selfish motives ( money or revenge being the most
common) than in the classical westerns.dollarsshoot

In A fist full of dollars the hero shoots three men because of a nasty joke.

Western satire

This subgenre is imitative in style in order to mock, comment on, or
trivialize the Western genre’s established traits, subjects, auteurs’
styles, or some other target by means of humorous, satiric, or ironic
imitation. Examples include Carry On Cowboy (1965), The Hallelujah Trail
(1965), The Scalphunters (1968), Support Your Local Sheriff! (1969),
Support Your Local Gunfighter (1971), Blazing Saddles (1974), Rustlers’
Rhapsody (1985), Three Amigos (1986), Maverick (1994), Quick Draw (2013)
and A Million Ways to Die in the West (2014).

Comics

Western comics have included serious entries (such as the classic comics
of the late 1940s and early 1950s), cartoons, and parodies
(such as Cocco Bill and Lucky Luke), more traditional Western comics are found throughout this period (e.g., Jonah Hex and Loveless).

Lucky Luke

The Daltons are fictional outlaws who regularly appear in the Lucky Luke
comic book series and are recurrent villains. They were created by
artist Morris and writer René Goscinny.

Lucky Luke does use his gun, but he never killed a man. He uses the gun for jokes and tricks.
