Words with no English Translation

27 Jan

retrouvaillesSo with this assignment Make The Untranslatable Understood you are asked to choose a word from this random word generator provided and apply it to an Image that gives the word meaning and a better understanding through the visual.  I came to the word Retrouvailles meaning “The happiness of meeting again after a long time.”  I knew I had some pictures that would fit this description.  Do I decided to use this picture of me and three of my very good friends who haven’t seen each other in a long time.  We all ended up taking different roads in life so far so it had been a long time since we last met.  The process for making this was fairly simple.  I just opened my image in Photoshop and used the basic text tool to add my word.  I chose to use a muted color from the picture using the   tool so the word would not stand out as much and let the picture speak for itself.

    I’m so glad to see this assignment again. The feeling can only be described as Retrouvailles! Nice work.

    This is a sad, yet quite meaningful simple project. I like the photo because it is real and not too fancy, also thanks for muting the letters I thought that the word was there by coincidence.
