Stephen McMennamy 超幽默 + 想像力「合併照片」新作欣賞（2）
hose + waterfall ventured out to Grotto Falls in the Great Smokey Mountains (Tennessee) for this #combophoto. and then ventured out to the bushes in my front yard for the hose shot. hand modeling courtesy of @lmcm2 and freezing cold water modeling courtesy of my brother in law and my youngest daughter. thanks for all the fam love and assistance… ⚡️??⚡️
toy car + real car 「Darn traffic.」 Just continuing to plow through some old #combophoto favorites of yore. This one is especially near and dear to my heart for many reasons, but a big one is how hard Isla (who’s 6 now, but was 4 at the time) worked with me on this one. She’s a performer and she did a damn good job capturing the essence of a disgruntled motorist. It isn’t true for everyone, but I always thought there was something sadly prophetic about this one… and funny. It’s probably too late for guys like me, but let’s all see what we can do to help our kids avoid growing up to become assholes.
van + roller skate ? this is another throwback, back when I was obsessed with combining wheeled objects (and contrasting scale). I shot the van (courtesy of @steveruggieri) on a backlot in LA and my daughters skate was shot in a parking lot here in Atlanta. The thing that stood out to me with this one was the positive reaction I got after posting it. I just wasn’t expecting such a positive response. I can get pretty unsure of myself when things come together too easily, but fun doesn’t depend on complexity. #combophoto
booze + cement mixer here’s a little something to help all those thanksgiving travelers get through the week. this ones been on my 「things to combine」 list for quite a while now. I guess it required me taking a vacation to make it happen. down in the Bahamas this week, and though I don’t drink, it only seemed appropriate to throw some festive spirits in a cement mixer. I tried it with milkshake ingredients (my preference), but it was done hastily and didn’t quite land for me (milkshake version over on @combophotofail). regardless, happy early thanksgiving. major thanks to uncle Bryan and @lmcm2 for helping coordinate the first dual video #combophoto.
fire + hot sauce ?? this is the result of a spontaneous trip to the grocery store. I saw some Sriracha and then I saw some flammable stuff. combined, they probably taste horrible, but add a flame to the aforementioned flammable stuff and they make for a fun little #combophotoVideo (don’t try anything like this at home or on a parking deck near your home). as per the usual #combophoto, I had several people help me get this to a better place. starting with @lmcm2, @alexrusselljr, @calebdewart and @flyingtrucks… all coming through with visual quality control, tweaks, criticisms, general opinionation* and overall improvematism* (*not words). and sealing the deal on some much needed iPhone video flicker correction (and much more technical stuff I’ll never understand)… @reverendcatino. thanks everyone.
