This photo is from a series from some of my crazy, extreme photo adventures I  had photographing Mountains "Alpinists " and rock climbers. This is Alpes mountain range which is called   "Le Massive du Mont Blanc", Haût Savoir region  In France.  And this place is a White valley ( La Vallee Blanche - Chamonix ) the most beautiful region You must visit. I was very brave enough to carry my Medium format two lenses/ meters/ and a Canon EOS and a 50mm, a lot of films No tripod/ It is crazy when I thi

Bonjour Henri,   I still prefer black and white film (I use almost no colour). The advantages of digital don’t mean much to me. Seeing instant results is not so useful, since what comes out of a camera is always far from a final result, and the final result requires time and thought.   Film also continues to improve. The quality of available film and developers is as good as it has ever been, and it is still as competent as digital sensors of equivalent size.   I also much prefer silver g

On a week-long stay at the Faroe Islands, I took the ferry from Torshavn (the 'capital') to the southernmost island, Suduroy, and looked up potential shooting locations on the island. This image was taken a little before the sun was setting in the ocean, with wind from the west (left). With the uplift of the humid air at the cliffs, fog and clouds drifted over the island. A quite typical situation for the islands; the ocean can be more or less cloud free, but the islands are generally covered in

Aussie trailer life...  [XP2]

(The roll of XP2 was generously gifted to me by Phil, our dear man down at McCrae on the Mornington Peninsula. It's the only one of its kind I've ever shot.)

the little break of the tyranny of the rectangle in the upper right corner makes this even more interesting.

and a yellow or orange filter ?   Or is this the plutonium lens with the incorporated yellow filter ? 😆  Makes me seriously think about the where-about of my F1n which didn't turn up after the last  moving of my household...   last not least: a very impressive seascape. Makes me think of the dutch masters-- with a different lens we could even think of Turner..

This photo taught me an essential rule of composition: If at all possible, put a young girl in a bikini in the foreground.

It's a good film and one I tend to fall back on if/when we travel, as the whole lot (C-41 colour neg, and XP2 B&W) can all go to the same process.

Great photo.

 

So. You're on the  beach with a beautiful woman:........" Hey! let's check out what is going on with Twitter." I am now glad I am getting older.

 

Best,

what a wonderful combination of happy colors on top of a more subdued palette... I´will be coming back to this for sure. 

Ha, you did it again. Sending me to the books. 🙄...

I remember rolling on the floor and/or trying to discover the political message behind the  wordplay some decades ago... Today you find me musing about this specific color field and its connection with  Ionesco...

I'm not confident enough to have figured it out, either. Martin Esslin coined the term "Theatre of the Absurd" in 1961 to discuss the work of Ionesco and Beckett, as well as Adamov, Genet, Pinter, and other "avant-garde writers," as he called them, in Europe and the United States. The view had the common denominator of the futility to struggle in a senseless world. We had the H-bomb and tested thousands of times the ability to destroy mankind. Ionesco's Rhinoceros dramatizes the absurd comedy and terror of human reality gone berserk. In my first college stage performance, I played the Fireman in Rhinoceros, delivering all six of my lines with my back to the audience as I climbed a ladder to rescue a lady. In Notes and Counter Notes, Ionesco discusses his plays, philosophy, and arguments with other writers and critics. There are "notes" and notes "against the notes." So, this is the somewhat rambling background to my homage to Ionesco's Counter Notes. Start with Theatre of the Absurd, repetition being a hallmark, seemingly pointless repetition. It's not readily apparent, but the objects I photographed are windows. There's a black aluminum frame, but everything else is glass, the large window glass being backed so it's not transparent. The bluish window is transparent and has a kind of translucent quality; it seems clear, but it's enigmatic. In Perspective as Symbolic Form, Panofsky quoted Durer's explanation of the concept of perspective: "Perspectiva is a Latin word which means 'seeing through.'" The perspectival view of space, in this way, transforms the picture into a "window" so that "we are meant to believe we are looking through this window into a space." This echoes Alberti's advice to painters in the 15th century to imagine the picture as though looking through a window. Remember, John Szarkowski then brings us to Mirrors and Windows. So, with "Ionesco's Counter Notes," I have glass, some opaque and some transparent, using Josef Albers's technique to create the illusion of transparency with opaque colors. If anything, it's unremarkable, and for this reason, absurd. Hello, Ionesco. I chuckle when I think of Woody Allen's comeback to the question of what his movie was about, and he says, "It's about two hours." I want to borrow that and respond to the question of what "Ionesco's Counter Notes" is about and say, "I think it should be about 3' x 5'."
