All about Photograph

A great photograph is a full expression of what one feels about what is being photographed in the deepest sense, and is, thereby, a true expression of what one feels about life in its entirety

Not bike themed because I was working, but I took this one Friday night with the big camera. I love getting paid to "play".

Ansel also said a great photograph is knowing where to stand! Not berating the guy, he is my hero. You will never get an appreciation for his work until you see his prints. They are amazing, it looks like you can just walk right through them.

I saw on the news a few nights ago they just verified some new Adams glass plates found in a suburban garage sale.

I read about that. It seems there is some dispute over actual origin. Still, the photographs and Adams' work are both stunning.

Same should be said about painter's brushes, pigments and canvas'; musicians should defer any credit to the instrument maker; and writers to the makers of their pens, paper or computers.

Nice framing and like the black and white. You don't always need color.
Nice job

I always liked the yarn that goes:

An Engineer retires from the factory.
The factory breaks down and nobody can work out how to fix it.
They call the retired Engineer as a last resort, he says 'I can fix it but it will cost you $500 per hour'.
After all other efforts are exhausted they employ him as a consultant for $500 an hour.
So he goes down to the Factory, grabs a big hammer and whacks the boiler just where the valve sticks.
All good, production resumes - $500 thanks.
'$500 for hitting the boiler with a hammer! Outrageous!' Claims management.
'No' says the Engineer 'The $500 is not for hitting the boiler. It's for knowing where to hit it.'


Now I see that maybe all you have to do for photographers is change it to 'knowing where to stand'.


Or lie down. :-)

Was just looking at it. Some of my better shots are because of where my press pass lets me stand.

Ya gotta know when to stand there, too. Never have had any luck getting sunset photos at high noon.
