is not the loneliest number…
I went to a photo critique at the B&H Event Space today. I showed one of my favorite in-camera double exposure images from the summer…
This was a group crit lead by four very talented folks, two from the B&H Event Space and two from the Soho Photo Gallery. Several of them felt it was too green. One suggested de-saturating the image…
two others suggested taking it into black and white…
So I figured let us see. You go to crits to learn something and get other’s opinions and ideas, yes? So I thought I would give it a whirl.
Granted, I have not spent a lot of time tweaking the two alternates but I didn’t just push a button and say, enough, either.
I would love to hear anyone’s thoughts on which image they prefer.
Katherine and I took a week off and headed to Wellfleet (alone!!!) before depositing the future back at college – a freakin’ Junior????
We had a delightful time
Meanwhile the Challenge this week is mirror and, using a bit of license, I think the following images “mirror” our week.
I took a Natural Light workshop last week taught by Andrew French. I had the opportunity to work with several of my favorite models as well as some folks new to me. Today I am featuring Brittany Sanders in a featurette I think I’ll call American Woman

An excellent night of music.
“Life does not consist mainly, or even largely, of facts and happenings. It consists mainly of the storm of thought that is forever flowing through one’s head.”
A photograph is a secret about a secret. The more it tells you the less you know.
I call these images
The Millennial Godot…
“”Let’s go. Yes, let’s go. (They do not move).”
“Let’s go. Yes, let’s go. (They leave).”
Of course…they return…
Special thanks to Glòria Juan Villegas for the excellent performance in my little updated event.

nope wrong song…
So you live day to day,
And you dream about tomorrow, oh
And the hours go by like minutes
And the shadows come to stay
So you take a little something
To make them go away
I could have done so many things, baby
If I could only stop my mind
From wonderin’ what I left behind
And from worrying ’bout this wasted time
The challenge is time
Well, an answer, I believe, is found in this snowy portrait…
