Dazed is a word that comes to mind, Lisa. My conversations with Christine usually end up like that. She says I have a crazy brain that gets me into trouble often, especially with her. I can never figure out what I’ve done. Good thing she loves me. I’d be dead in the water otherwise. At least it gives her a laugh. Some days she just can’t stop…[Read more]
The house is quiet. Christine is still in bed. The grand kids will be on their way. Last minute dash to annoy someone. That seems to come natural to me, although I’m buggered if I know why.
@drus is always at odds with me. the Toad seems to think he can just swim over any time and…[Read more]
Ahhh! The dreaded business of business. Feeding the children is a necessity of life, just as is feeding the soul. Children and mortgagers seem to be a bit more persistent and certainly shout louder.n Is that why we have hobbies?
My Old Man used to hide in the shed doing whatever. I never asked for fear of him telling me. Turned out he was doing…[Read more]
Hey, @falx and @aarongei, is this a conversation anyone can join? Or are you just sending out verbal shrapnel to see if anyone will be wounded? If it was me you targeted, you’ll need to do better than that. My wife, Christine is from Manchester and she’s called me things I didn’t know existed. In fact they don’t. She invents expletives just for…[Read more]
Michael @michael-lloyd, you seem a nice bloke so I’ll save you a lot of pain.
When someone wants to do damage to a photo of mine just because they don’t like it I get a bit sensitive.
You see, telling me what you would have done is of no use to me at all. That’s not why I take photos. You can have your own personal opinion on any of my stuff…[Read more]
It’s a good thing you’re not my printer, @michael-lloyd otherwise I would have to shoot you. I must admit, though, I do use your approach when visiting people who own cats. “If I owned this house I’d kill the cat”, is what I say to the owner at which point they immediately oblige because they value my opinion. Check It Out
Very hip, @aarongeis. Shame you don’t talk English. I’m sure we could have a reasonable conversation based on a common language.
My intention wasn’t to whelm you in any way or form. Up until now I hadn’t given your personal tastes a midicom of thought. And I’m not about to add you to my ‘who cares’ list of people for my future…[Read more]
People who know me also know I have a slightly kinky view of the approach to learning photography. It’s because I never learnt any rules. Funnily enough, I have never been dissatisfied with any of my photos. Some I don’t keep but I know I learnt something along the way. When I look at someone else’s photo I don’t look for compositional structure.…[Read more]
Then there are the times when everything is a jumble and you don’t know where to start. It becomes a treasure hunt to find the place to stand, the framing, the settings on the camera and the timing. That’s where I love experimenting. This is one shot from well over a hundred taken on the day. It’s not…[Read more]
Composition often presents itself if you hang around long enough. Take notice and when the time is right all you need to do is press the button. Composition with photography isn’t a matter of placing things where you want them unless you have a studio. All other cases it involves taking what is there…[Read more]
The casualness of everyday occurrences is a treasure of photo opportunities. Purposeful and deliberate composition can be detrimental to the final result. Here I am looking for a view that has the same casualness that has presented itself in the scene of the young men doing their thing. Glimpses of the…[Read more]
Many may find all sorts of so called compositional strategies in this simple photo. If that’s all they find, their loss. If that’s all they’re looking for, poor fool them. One or toe out there might like the shot. Just as many may not. Since I didn’t take the shot for any of them, I couldn’t give a…[Read more]
