    the pictures are kind of dark so it might be a depressing love story. i think it is a love story because i see a heart. and i think that they die together because there are two skeletons holding each other.

    the pictures relate how the play is about a undying love. How Romeo and Juliet both love each other and how they can't be together. How they want to be together and the color of love. How Juliet is seperated from Romeo and Romeo wants to be with her but he can't. The darkness represents how they have to see each other in the dark and no one can know about there relationship.

    i think the apples are apart from the other because the two lovers are completely separate- tyler shockey

    I think the skeleton picture of the two people represent that they died together, but they died because they were in love. I think the two apples mean that they are two different colors that are trying to be together even though they are separated by a bowl. I think that the broken heart picture represents that both of the characters hearts were broken because of their forbidden love. The color red represents two things; love and violence.

    Romeo and Juliet is a tragedy written by William Shakespeare. Most of the pictures have the color red associated with them. Red is usually connected with blood which is usually associated with death and red represents love and how they will die for each other. In most of the pictures a man an a woman are kissing. Romeo and Juliet are two lovers I'm they kissed a lot. Lastly, some of the artists picked symbols to portray the connection between the two people and the fact that they are of two different families or colors which separates them from one another.

    I think that romeo and juliet love each other so much that they would die together. I think that romeo is a nobody and juliet is a princess.

    They are two young lovers that have an intense burning passion. They will have an inflamed love for each other until the day that they will perish in an internal hell. One of the young lovers is way to intense to the other and he is feeling awkward and may want to break the relationship off. She has way to of an intense passion and a longing to make babies, but the man is not sure he wants to put forward the commitment and they are moving to fast for him. He had a huge crush on her, but when they started on an actual relationship she is coming on to him to fast and he feels uncomfortable, but likes it at the same time.

    I think these pictures represent the passion between Romeo and Juliet. The apples represent their differences and hpw there is a barrier between them. The skeletons show how they went to death for their love. All the kissing shows the physical parts or their relationship and how they just were meant to be together. The wooden figures shows Romeo calling up to Juliet. The red represents their love and death. The red and green apple show how they're on two different ends of the social scene. Their parents hate each other and there is a barrier between their two lives. The lollipop show that their love was broken and sweet.

    The artwork symbolizes both the loss and the love that are predominant in the. Some of the colors are bright and expressive, maybe representing joy and happiness. However, some colors are also dull and depressing, representing the loss and sadness. The color red is largely used in each picture; red is both the color of love and blood.
    On the top, the second picture on the left, two skeletons are intertwined in each other. They are obviously both dead, but wrapped in a warm, loving embrace. Like in Romeo and Juliet, the two skeletons are together(even in death); they will endure even death to be together.

    Two Lovers are together! They want to be togethr until they die but they are not destined to be together. There are other women invovled. Maybe a different lover. They are seperated and miss eachother. It is very colorful and maybe that represents a certain moodthat is trying to be set. The skeletons represent that they want to be together until they die. The apples represent the different people they aare and the different families they come from. They are not meant to be together everyone think. Yoou can identify that you can realate to the story and that even stories that old are easy to relate to.

    Most of the art on the post shows some type of heartbreak and sadness.They show two people and sometimes they're drifting apart. Red is the predominate color probably because it's a love story. There's a painting of a heart broken in half which also signifies heartbreak. The painting of the two apples in the bowl says tome that there are two types of people with a barrier separating them, signifying that they can't be together.

    There is a lot of red and it looks like it about love that doesn't end well.The lighting in all the pictures is dark so that makes me think it doesn't end well. The crushed heart candy also tells me that someones heart is broken. The skeletons tells me they love each other and they would die together. The apples seem to be separating them

    Mostly the color red is being used and red symbolizes romance and love. So that means that Romeo and Juliet is a story probably about romance and love. A couple of the pictures are very dark and black symbolizing death. So maybe one of the characters or both of the characters dies. The broken heart represents well a broken hear maybe one of the characters does somethings to hurt the other. In all the pictures they are together accept for the apple and the puppets. The apples represents love that shouldn't be or can't be.

    This art shows the love that they have for each other. Many of the pieces show the devotion to each other, the pictures that have them kissing or hugging and the colorful one standing next to each other. The one with the skeletons show how Romeo and Juliet died for each other so they will stay together when they are dead. The two apples represent how different they are from each other and how their worlds are completely different from each other. The heart shows how there is some heartbreak and hard times in their love.

    The artwork created to tell the tale of Romeo and Juliet look very colorful. In each of the pictures there is a man and a women that look like they're in love. The first one shows a lot of darkness but it still look romantic. One painting that look as if they are some type of puppet shape is also dark and both figures aren't as close as others are as for Juliet seems to be on the balcony. The skeletons look like as if they have promise with one another as they will die with and for each other. Another painting shows two apples which symbolizes that they are the same but different colors and the bowl Juliet is in is the force keeping one another apart. The one painting that caught my eye was one that is very colorful and right in the middle are to faces that seen like there is a lot surrounding them.

    I think that from seeing the images of Romeo, and Juliet, that this will be a dark story, of forbidden love. I see a lot of red, signifying blood. I predict that some one will die in the story. I see skeletons together signifying that both Romeo, and Juliet will die, and finally be together, in death. The apples signify two different things that are yet the same. The bowl represents a force dividing them apart.

    The artwork has a lot of colors that look kind of calm, but the colors are also pretty intense. This reminds me of romance because in 6 out of 8 pictures there is a man and woman kissing or together in each others arms. The broken lollipop maybe means that the love is bittersweet, or maybe its sweet but broken. There is a picture of the couple where they are skeletons and I think it means that they love each other forever. The 2 apples make me think that they are different things yet they are the same in a way and make a good match.

    I think that the picture with the skeletons reflects on that both Romeo and Juliet die at the end of the story but it also shows that they are willing to die to be together. The next picture to the right looks sort of like a cartoon picture. Romeo looks scared. The apple picture I think shows that the two apples are very different and similar at the same time. It also shows that one of the apples in the bowl and the other is outside of the bowl. The picture to the left of the apple seems to be mostly red which reminds me of blood and love at the same time. To left of that photo shows Romeo and Juliet kissing, but Romeo is kinda outside the the wall which makes me feel like they are not suppose to be together. The lollipop photo makes me think that the love is sweet but very easily broken. The puppet photo makes me think that since they are faceless that everyone could relate to this situation even though it was a long time ago.

    When looking at the artwork for Romeo and Juliet I noticed almost all of the pictures have two people in them, a man and a women. Im guessing these two people represent a Romeo and Juliet. One picture that caught my attention was the picture with the two apples, one red and one yellow. This could represent Romeo and Juliet and the bowl is the separating force between them. In the picture with the two skeletons, they could be skeletons because they both die in the end and die together. The picture with the smashed lollipop shows sweet or innocent love, broken and it kind of looks like a smashed heart. The picture with the two puppets could represent how it can still relate to modern days.

    i think the apples represent romeo and Julietta because they are different color witch represents th different families they come from and they are separated because they have no way to get to each other

    the skeletons represents the idea that they will die for each other.

     
  • At 12:40 PM , Blogger CLINTONM said...

    well the skeletons mean death but alot of the pictures have some love like the heart but its also broken so someone broke someones heart and theres some romance in the kissing pictures and the apples to me mean that there is some separation by an outside force and last the painting with the reds and greens and yellows might show that there is blood but its got bright feeling

    My eyes first traveled to the small one with a crushed heart sucker and splashes of red around it. It made me think that someones heart gets broken and battered. I wonder if it does, if it gets better for that person. Next i saw the one with skeletal figures. I think it means the Romeo and Juliet story is a dead dream, and cannot happen. Next to that the picture has non real figures, which again i feel symbolizes it cannot be real. The picture with the apples i realize they are different colors and are seperated. So maybe they are different but love eachother, and are forced apart. In the two touching the corners on the left, and the one in the top right corner, you can see them embracing eachother, showing they do in fact love eachother. The large contrasting one brings out their faces and the color red, showing possibly that its about them and their love, but goes through alot of confusion.

    The picture of one apple in a bowl and another apple out of the bowl could represent Juliet being stuck in her room, and Romeo trying to get her out. The two main colors used were red and yellow and the red could represent the love between them and the violence that it takes for them to be together. The yellow could be gold and represent royalty and how Juliet is "better" than Romeo.

    I think the darkness of the pictures connect to Romeo and Juliet is that they love each other and they want to be together for therest of their lives so it kinda paints a sad and dark felling but at the same it paints like a happy love story

     
  • At 12:41 PM , Blogger Davis said...

    The pictures each show something different, some show how there love is forbidden and always something in there way, heart break, and when together they are very close and seem like they never want to leave each other. It seems as if something is always blocking there love.-Jolene

    theres a plethora or shades of red bright and more dull. most of the other colors are more dull and dont pop out as much. shows love and a deep connection of the 2 but it seems they cant be together or it may be a challenge to stay with each other but no matter what they will try and be until death.

    lots of red and yellow,people kissing,the apples are separated?, why are they skeletons, they will do anything for each other even die?, why is the sucker broken and why is there blood behind it?, They are young kids from a long time ago,there opposites that are attracted to each other.

     
  • At 12:42 PM , Blogger Katie said...

    I see first off is the picture is of the sucker, because it showed like how someones heart got smashed. And that is just something simple that it doesn't matter. Apples were next that I saw and how they were different and one was red like the one most people would go for and that the yellow one wasn't. And like the blow was their social ranking and how it makes it so they cant be together. I found next the one were their like dead and how it demonstrates that they would die for one another. The rest were all the same and stuff

    The picture show that Romeo and Juliet are in love forever, even after they die. their love was a dark path to get to each other put when they are together its a bright romantic love. the pictures also show that they will die for each other and the apples show that Romeo are separated with a wall of force to keep them separated and they are different but the same species. the broken lollipop shows that even sweet love can be broken. Also the pictures show that people can find themselves like Romeo and Juliet in present time.

    They are in love till death because the dead people are hugging each other. One is sweet and one is sour but one is grown up yet. They look very in love because they kissing in almost every picture.Someones heart is broken during the story.

    i think the skeltons shows how they love eachother so much that they would die with each other. and the apple how they are the same but also different.

    in most of the art peaces they are some how separated and it is dark and forbidden looking, the one with the skeleton i think shows how the only time they truly can be together is when there dead. the one with the apples i think the bowl represents the force that wont let them be together. the apple also is the forbidden fruit in the bible so i think that has something to do with it.

    the first pictures in the slide show kind of showed separation, but as the slide show went on the pics showed animals cuddling so it showed more love. the music gave it a dark feeling
