Random Sampling the Past ds106 Flow

  1. Diriyah

    --Originally published at Let's Make Some Art, Dammit
    November 3, 2018. Woke up this morning in Riyadh, had some breakfast, took a nap, waled around, and then in the evening went for supper with my hosts (and Tomohiko form Japan) and a tour of the area around Diriyah, an old town on the outskirts of Riyad...
  2. One for One

    --Originally published at Ashley Edmonds

    Today I was inspired to go the day without shoes to raise awareness and money for Toms. Toms is a company that would match every pair of shoes purchased with a pair of new shoes given to a child in need. One for One. Today April 10, 2012 Jacksonville State University held a campus wide awareness down for One for One. This event consisted of walking around everywhere barefoot to obtain a better understanding of what children without a way to protect their feet have to endure on a daily basis. As the day of fun and festivities ended it was time for the long walk around University/Trusties Circle, barefoot of course. This is when the reality kicked in. With the asphalt almost unbearable and the rough rocks rubbing blisters on the balls of feet, it was a real challenge to make it to the finish line.

    This picture was inspired by today’s events. I used (online version) to increase the contrast, brush the toenail polish glair, and made the blues really pop. I found this assignment exciting and what a great way to involve my experiences of today in my blog.
     Yes those are blisters.
