Albert Einstein on vacation

For this week you should complete two ds106 visual assignments, each should be posted to your blog, appropriately tagged and categorized.

My second assignment from the bank of items was thinking about what Albert Einstein might look like if he did a selfie with a black hole behind him. Thinking he had a spaceship and wanted to visit one of his theories in real life was fun. I found some images of Albert and a black hole on the web and combined them in Photoshop. I took the black hole image as my background and crop/deleted the extra background behind Albert then super imposed them on top of each other. I left both as a layer so I could continue to crop and erase elements until it was believable. Here are the results. I hope you like it!

    And here I thought Einstein liked playing golf in Florida! Great idea for the selfie.Is he the type to send post cards, but t-shirts when he is on vacation?

    One thing- when you describe the images you use, I would like to see more specifically the source for them; a web site URL where you found them and.or a name for the site.

      I think Einstein would be a little more creative and send message at the “speed of light”. 🙂 Yes that is a good point on giving credit where I found the photos. I will do that more next time.
