    Hey! Xará!

  • Oh! We have a new place to congregate.

    Rio appears to have amazing light….

  • I have to say, this group frequently intimidates me.

    ….I guess it’s knowing the depth and breadth of the all the talents that regularly come here and read and post and share work…to say nothing of the well-above-average works that are selected and posted…I have typical artist self-doubt, I suppose….but also probably somewhat prudent and pragmatic knowing, since I am well aware that much of this is out of my league, so to speak.

    But in the spirit of Shakespeare (“Our doubts are traitors and make us lose the good we oft might win by fearing to attempt”), and in the spirit of sharing work, which has always been part of the bedrock of this place, here is a link to the root of my relatively new-to-me tumblr feed.

    Not much there yet – I am editing, but I ask for any who have a bit of time to waste and perhaps advice to share to take a look and even better to perhaps follow me as I try to build and grow and refine…

  • Andrew B…

    I miss seeing a little more human presence in your images. I suffer from the the same problem. It my case it’s comfy and less intimidating to add strangers/human presence in an image. Imagine the Eduardo image above minus Eduardo. There’s a slightly interesting broken fence and Eggleston would probably find something there but Eduardo and the light are the magic in the image.

    Thank you for looking – and you are correct, the images up there are a little “cold” and lacking interaction. I believe you will see that change as I fill things out…

    but a very astute observation – I naturally gravitate towards the “structural” and not the personal interactive side….interestingly (or perhaps it’s a case of obvious wanting what you don’t have naturally) I much prefer the personal interaction photos.

    I will continue to post – and evolve :) Please stay tuned…

  • Love watching the process of the all your work !

  • CIVI

    Thank YOU for looking – please follow! My son liked that photo and actually asked for a large print to hang on the wall in his room – so I at least have one fan!

    And your truth? Only you know, but it perhaps has to do with chickens and Ouzo!!

  • Andrew B…
    Keep on posting images. I’ll be watching! Human interaction with a camera is much harder for me than just talking to anyone. But once I manage to jump the hurdle it gets easier. It’s a bit like having a cold shower when the first couple of seconds are the worst and then you kind of get used to the temperature.

  • Thanks Paul.

    What’s funny is that I am such an extrovert, I can pretty much talk to anyone. I think that’s another reason I know I’m missing something in so many of my photos…

  • LOOK3 is coming….who’s going?? We most certainly need to have at least an impromptu gathering of Burnians…

    A little composite I made year before last to set the mood – a few regulars here have cameo appearances.

    (p.s. Paul, these are closer to what I want to be able to do consistently with more human presence in my photos)
