Thankyou ronnie for the kind observations. Photography, music, sign language, pottery, buddhism....family and friends.....all have different valuable values to my life. Just go with the flow and accept what is. I never become fraught from criticism if it is aimed my way. But I do like the old positive feedback like anyone else. So thankyou for this. I just enjoy the process of learning something new and producing something tangible be it pottery, a print, or a song. If others get 'something positive' from what they see or hear, then that is good fortune.
Noticed you on Pentax User, and have just enjoyed looking at your photographs. I really do like them, and that's a bit of an understatement. You have an interesting philosophical approach to photography and it comes through in your thought provoking photographs.
Thanks for making your work available for us to see.
Thanks Malcolm. I have to get out there and seek new inspirations.
I'm really impressed with what you're doing both here and on the Pentax Gallery.
Please keep sharing.
Thanks Paul, Had a look at your website. Interesting collection of cameras. No LX on show. If you haven't tried one out, it's a joy. I've used an ME, MX, 645 and just got a diddy auto 110 with only a 28mm lens though. My son had it ready for the charity shop and I rescued it. Great photographs on your site. Love the 'Onze Lieve Vrouwenwal' black and white shot. Great perspective photograph and great tones. I was thinking that a darker rendition would have given it a Brandt feel. That lamp....Godsend. Good fortune
Black and white works really well for you! That, plus an LX - sounds like an ideal combination. See you on PUG.
Thankyou Julian for dropping by to have a look at these images.
Sensational images. Thank you.
Thankyou Hamilton, Been to look at your work and am much impressed. Very good eye behind the many different lenses you use. Love the fact that you have black and white inclusions and possess an inherent ability to achieve amazing results in this format. You tackle your subject matter with panache. Good Fortune. You gained a fan.
I have been looking at your website and I am impressed. Your use of patterns, textures, shadows and light combined with the gritty imressions makes me rethink my own work in ways I never considered before. Nice work.
just testing whether it works
good fortune :)
You know those people who seem to do nothing but live, eat and breathe photography, yet whose pictures leave you cold? What a dreary lot they are, with their opinions and their rules. And then there are their opposites - those who profess to just putter around with photography a little, taking no real interest in it seriously, and yet they produce stunning works. I think that real enthusiasm for a subject is one of keys that separates these talented folk from the rest. Because I think that photography that matters to others is photography that matters to the photographer.
I really don't care much what the genre of a certain photograph is - landscape, portrait, still life, nude, documentary, etc. What I care about is that the work somehow captures my imagination, takes me places, introduces me to people and cultures that I may never visit, or that shows me something familiar in a new way.
Which brings me to Gray Summers. No, I'm not talking about a cloudy season, I'm talking about another fine photographer I met on Flickr.
I find Gray's photography as enigmatic, moody and mysterious as his name. "Contemplative" and "spiritual" are two other words that come to mind.
Words by Jeff Damron.....Many Thanks.
