A motivational quote

"This life is what you make it. No matter what, you're going to mess up sometimes, it's a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you're going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends - they'll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, some go. The ones that stay with you through everything - they're your true best friends. Don't let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they'll come and go too. And baby, I hate to... continue reading

Simple is not easy

“Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple.” – Steve JobsNo, this is not going to be a blog about sayings by the late Steve Jobs.It just happens to reflect very well the reaction I had (eventually) upon seeing a sample of photographs taken by Paul Caponigro.The pictures I was looking at were mostly still life or landscapes, and I am ashamed to say that upon a superficial glance, I was inclined to dismiss them as simple shots... continue reading

My next victim - Peter Adams

Hello again,Based on the reactions to the last blog (Abell concise and me ranting), it would seem that people actually enjoy it when I rant.That, however, does not seem to include my wife who has made it absolutely clear, that all my ranting must be done outside her presence or I shall in no time at all, be ranting about sleeping on the sofa with an empty stomach (ha, I’m one up on her there, I love to cook and my sofa is pretty darn comfortable).Anyhow, I am back here again with another... continue reading

Mr Adams and me

Robert Adams gained prominence with his pictures that depicted how natural landscapes are transformed as civilization encroaches upon them.As a lover of the inherent beauty of the natural landscape his photographs strongly hint at the dismay he must have felt as he saw it being defaced by ever advancing human activity.It is not only his pictures that captured my attention; his musings also make for some thought-provoking study.He was at some point a teacher of English, and I think this as... continue reading

Provocations of Dorothy Lange

“While there is perhaps a province in which the photograph can tell us nothing more than what we see with our own eyes, there is another in which it proves to us how little our eyes permit us to see.”I am simply awe struck by that thought.Read it again, please and then read the next quote.“This benefit of seeing...can come only if you pause a while, extricate yourself from the maddening mob of quick impressions ceaselessly battering our lives, and look thoughtfully at a quiet image.... continue reading
