  • 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 ...

    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 ...

    Glad you liked this little effort to follow in your footsteps. As always, your encouragement keeps me going, and much appreciated. I was very happy to see the coyotes as their habitat is dwindling ...
  • Inspired by Louis's sakura shots, I went out looking for spring in my neighborhood, and saw these. I was delighted to notice that I was being watched while I was the watcher :-) (109 with Velvia ...

    You are asking some very good questions. I can tell you that the sculpture is "small" by Serra standards. It is made up of two steel panels (attached together to form one continues curving wall) ...
  • Replied in Calder
    I appreciate your generous feedback very much! I am glad that the deep beauty of the moment somehow came through in this picture, in some way. Next time you are at the Toronto Airport, you will ...

    Thank you so much for your comments, especially as a fan of his work what you are saying means a lot to me. I think it's a great challenge to present this in 2D as it really has to be experienced ...
  • Replied in Louis
    You never fail to amaze me with your generous support and most encouraging comments on my attempts at photography. I'm happy to know that you liked this as this sculpture has become a special ...
  • Created discussion thread sun setting into a Serra
    This is a Richard Serra steel sculpture (Torqued Ellipse) that I like very much. It is on the UCLA arts campus. Depending on the time of the day and the weather, seeing it is always a unique (and ...
  • Every year, I look forward to your poetic images of this "blooming event" with great anticipation. And, it is always a sumptuous feast for the soul (not just the eyes) to see your images. This ...
  • Spectacular! I love the gentle curves that generate further energy and movement. It's an image bursting with life. Louis, this is fantastic! Happy Spring! Ece
  • Replied in Dear Louis!
    I love this Grand Tour! This set has some of your classic themes and each image has a master lesson in it somewhere. I particularly love the juxtaposition in #2 and how the image feels like it ...
  • Beautiful double portrait with warmth and great story easily felt through your lens. Their story is the human story that gets repeated over and over with no end in sight while the "leaders" bicker ...
  • Replied in Mike
    Thank you so much for your thoughts on this. I saw the headless statue as a stand in for all the humans negotiating their way through these canyons of steel, in a seemingly endless loop. And, you ...
  • Replied in Louis
    Thank you, dear Louis! I am already back home, missing NYC. It was a busy trip, I didn't get a chance to see Stuart. Hopefully next time... Hug back :-) Ece
