8-30-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Dialogue

Dialogue is an engaging conversational exchange.

When it comes to photography, dialogue can be perceived as a consensual interaction between two images.

Placed next to each other, each photograph opens up to meanings that weren’t there when viewed alone.

Each composition reveals the photographer’s specific sensitivity to certain content or visual elements.”

So it is a big day here. To celebrate the ch-ch-ch-Changes, I beg your indulgence for this long slide show but how often do you send your only child off to college? Herewith a small piece of one 17-year-old life, starring Abigail Wyatt Alford Johnson with Eva Moskowitz, Caroline Kravitz, Edy Getz, Lilah Weiss, Ari Lapidus, Gracie Remington, Brigitte Seely-Messick, Jennie Nadel, Kailee Breaux and thousands of others.

Thanks for stopping by. Keep on running.

 

8-27-14 The Glass Has Water In It

Today ended the “Abigail/Lilah Transition Show” as it is time for us all to go our separate ways. These are the last two photographs I took. Hardly my best but important due to the timing.

8-26-14 Glory Days – Bookends

These are perhaps my two favorite photographs of the summer. This is the way they came from the camera. I spent a lot of hours getting these shots. I believe I featured a different version of them earlier this year but I kept returning and finally got what I want.  I will probably work them a bit and may show them again or not.

8-24-14 Hawking – No Drama Sunday

“The best thing for being sad,” replied Merlin, beginning to puff and blow, “is to learn something. That’s the only thing that never fails. You may grow old and trembling in your anatomies, you may lie awake at night listening to the disorder of your veins, you may miss your only love, you may see the world about you devastated by evil lunatics, or know your honour trampled in the sewers of baser minds. There is only one thing for it then — to learn. Learn why the world wags and what wags it. That is the only thing which the mind can never exhaust, never alienate, never be tortured by, never fear or distrust, and never dream of regretting. Learning is the only thing for you. Look what a lot of things there are to learn.”
 T.H. White –  The Once and Future King

When I was a child my second favorite book, after The Lord Of The Rings, was The Once and Future King. I loved it all but for some reasons the hawking scenes made the deepest impression. This may be why, when I saw the hawk mousing yesterday, I spent 40 minutes just watching and occasionally shooting him/her as other people stopped, took a snap and moved on. These are four of my favorites from yesterday.

8-21-14 Weekly Photo Challenge: Silhouette

I thought before the week ended/began I would get back to basics with the photo challenge: silhouette. Just a simple studio setup.
