Can't take my eyes away without taking some words on this. I am too attached to landscapes related to mountains. Lovely photo.

Lovely landscape and I am sure this is not handheld. If it were handheld what quality will it lose, I wonder? Beautiful monochromic that deserves to be seen on a big blow up.

Great photo and playing with a negative loaded manual camera to master this effect is not everyone skill. And  against the light and zero tolerance with the daylight and Non-bracketing is a mission impossible for me. Bravo! and you merit it.

Occasionally we see something very special here. We are all aware (at least I hope we are) that the range of talented photographers here on the "I like film" thread embraces every single one of us who contributes - of that there is no question. But then we see a photograph - a portrait, no less, perhaps the hardest of any genre to get right - that speaks volumes about the relationship of the photographer to the subject and knocks it out of the park. Look at this for long enough and the story is there - the older man speaking, his vast wisdom suggested by the books behind him - the younger man lower, in deference, listening even as he performs his art. To know that these words were among the last given to his son by the father adds an incredible poignancy. A wonderful, wonderful picture Eoin.

This rates a "Wow!" from me, Cyril. I'm not sure of the right words, but there seems something very human and soulful about this image.

Thank you very much, Phil - You read the situation well. I didn't appreciate his efforts to impart his wisdom until I was a long-time adult. He is the one who taught me about photography, developing, and printing as a child, and I let it lapse for several decades. I am glad that he got to see my interest rekindled before he boarded the flight.

I think all of us here are glad of that, too, Eoin - as will be your daughter and other important people in your life who will benefit from a treasured record - as well as the valuable time spent together in gaining them. Because, as your history with your Dad attests, it's never just about the pictures, is it?

Not sure anyone else seen this one. This is the situation and moments that everyone who walked in this time-lapse of the moment or another dimension of exsistance, without seeing exactly what is it. Those who participated and represented it without knowing the moment and going through the battles fear, joy, pleasure, the struggle will make them blind. This photo can represent anything in day-to-day life and a lot of people can read photos easily but not a lot can read a scene and draw it at the same time. I think Adam You have a very developed eye for details. I like how you see through the lens ...😉

😉     This is a great monochrome and this photo needs a lot of controls and perfections to get to this level. It is not the first photo of you Tmax most of your photos have the same DNA  😉

Well, Phil, this is just one of those images that's set to auto-replay in my visual archive with its enigmatic, strong imagery: the starkly silhouetted figure that anchors the diaphanous veils, flags of nations, blurring the colors of their borders so that metaphorically there's a confluence of cultures backlit in the setting, or rising, sunlight. The transparency of these flag colors constrasted against the woman's sculpture opaque form defines a moment that alludes to an indeterminacy, yet the promise it may snap back to determinate real time. One of those images that is set to auto-replay, the symphony of the visual archive.

Rog, thank you so much, sincerely. I really value incredibly your thoughts about images, and the many roads one's mind can take as a result of thinking about context, and importantly what the image alludes to outside the structure of the frame. And I have you and Steve R to thank for allowing me to see metaphorical ~tyches in some of the single photographs that perhaps I'd overlooked in the past (of which this is an example). It has really broadened my outlook just as considering your well-chosen and studied words enriches my understanding of images - even my own; maybe even especially those. I hope one day to get an insight into how you come up with the incredible "assemblages" (that's how I think of them, I hope that's accurate) that you produce - to me they appear as a result of a strange, mysterious alchemy. Thank you again.

Raspberry Night No. 8 Polyptych

Thinking further on Rog's "assemblages" such as Raspberry Night No. 8, there is so much that sneaks up into your consciousness the more you view various iterations. One such thing is the role played by texture. In one sense, it's a photograph ("no it's not" said little Nicola "it's a tableau or an artwork or an image or...") so the texture is illusory - only a two-dimensional representation of texture. Yet, because I think of the context in which we view it, its texture seems hyper-real - which, in a sense, it is, because the picture/tableau/whatever is an assembled work of motifs taken directly from the "real" world - walls and footpaths and what-have-you. The "texture" is, in effect, the only real thing about the "photograph" because the rest is the result of the artist assembling disparate elements into a coherent, and aesthetically pleasing, whole. Other elements - the composition, shading, the perception of depth and so on - the choices made by the artist - lead us to view this as a meritorious work that stands very much on its own - a monochromatic color field, a statement of classic art theory; this picture serves many intents, as does the rest of Rog's anthology of assemblages, ~tyches. I can only imagine that a well-compiled and curated exhibition, or a book, of these works would be remarkable. Perhaps, with a bit of encouraging nudging in Rog's direction, some day  we might see something like that.
