  • No subject too mundane or worthless to photograph! This is a delightful set, I want to check out each of those shops, each of those items, as they look very inviting (and intriguing too) through ...
  • It is a nice shot. It is also a good example of how prematurely these kids (girls, in particular) are pushed into the adult world and decked out with adults' idea of "fashion" whether that idea is ...
  • It sounds like a very special experience for you and the kids. This set is beautiful, with painterly use of light, and strong atmosphere. I am glad you are enjoying the camera and shooting/posting ...
  • Louis, It's always fun to go on a stroll with you, taking in the sights and the characters that show up along the way. This set is yet another great example of this experience! Warmest regards, Ece
  • Replied in Raaj
    Thank you for that enthusiastic endorsement! I am glad you liked this experiment and I appreciate your input very much. I will have to look up the names as I am not familiar with their work. So, ...
  • Replied in Paul
    Paul, These are both very beautiful! I like both of them but in different ways. They have different emotional charge. Sometimes out of mistakes come great discoveries. Imagine what you can do if ...
  • Replied in Hans
    Dear Hans, Thank you for your always thought provoking comments that somehow end up bridging gaps, opening doors, shining light into dark corners. It is a time of transition for our family and I ...
  • Replied in John
    Thank you for taking a look at this and for your supportive comments and feedback. I appreciate it very much. I like your description of the wind and I can see how this can conjure all that up. ...
  • Replied in Louis
    Thank you, dear Louis! I appreciate your super encouraging words, as always. They mean a lot to me. I think it is a challenge to move in directions I never tried before (quite amateurishly too as ...
  • This is a stellar example of what film can give you, if you know what you are doing. Despite all the "film simulation" software out there for digital application, nothing comes close to the real ...
  • Dov, It's a powerful image to the point that I feel pain if I look at them for a while, and want to know more about their lives. And I try to move that stand (?) on the left, in my mind's eye, to ...
  • Raj, These are beautiful! I am surprised that they are still willing to cooperate as I find this impossible with my teenager. I hope you get back to 100% soon but not put your camera down anyway. I ...
  • Created discussion thread jacaranda impression
    My friends here know how much I love these trees; this time of year is a treat to see them bloom all over the city, painting the landscape neon periwinkle/purple for a brief period of time. I ...
  • What a beautiful girl and a wonderful shot! They are truly great dog. You are lucky. Ece
  • Rodrigue, This is a great write-up. I especially appreciate the way you emphasize your perception of the camera given a broader context of your experiential history. I think for all that this ...
  • Replied in Louis
    You know how to paint with light, and this set is a free Masterclass! I love the first image which has a 3D quality to it, and each subsequent "portrait" brings out unique qualities in each of ...
  • Rodrigue, It's hard to add to what's already said, but I feel compelled to add my voice to the chorus. This is spectacular in its scope and subject, and as a photographic panorama it's a well ...
  • Replied in Mike
    That's exactly how I was feeling, long before the end of my hike! I'm glad the feeling comes through. Much appreciate your thoughts, always! BTW, those are two coyotes I came across; the one on the ...
  • Replied in Mike
    I love the wide ranging interpretation you present with this set, each like a totally different book on the topic. Beautiful and inspiring! Very best, Ece
  • Replied in Smith
    Thanks so much for taking a look and for your helpful suggestions. I appreciate your example work too, looks very nice. Southern California light is all about heavy contrasts and on that day we ...
