Is this a poem you have to write yourself or do you have to use a published author?

Maybe something about being alone or loss of a love or something....just a few thoughts


Maybe think about what that pic means to you? Does it look frightened, lost alone? then go from there

Good advice, Ms. Sixty haro must not be the poetic type :P So, haro, do you need a graphic, or a poem? Are you open to both? I could probably whip something up to fit a pic I have. What are the full guidelines? Sounds like fun, anyway Get back to me...

I'd like to see what you come up with.

ok, the project is not really dependant on if the poem is good, or if the graphic is pretty.

the graphic must be HI RES, meaning no pixelation at 11x17 and the poem must match the graphic.

i am thinking of using one of sols photos from his blog, he emailed me a full size one
http://www.solsblog.com/phlog/images/1026%20003.jpg

my roommate just bought a 5 mega pixel sony camera that is awesome, so i can take a picture of anything that you guys have a good poem about...

i really like that one of the parking meter though

the point of the project is to prove we know the software, and how to run it on an offset press

So, what does that "11x7" mean in pixel dimensions? I.E. 800x600

???

More like close to 2000 pixels wide. My 4.0MP doesn't go that high.
