Excellent pictures and write up. BTW - happy 150.

 

 

I really like the quote you had on Picasso: "I would like to manage to prevent people from ever seeing how a picture of mine has been done. What can it possibly matter? What I want is that the only thing emanating from my pictures should be emotion. - Pablo Picasso" ;   

that's what I feel - the "emotion" to be projected, and that's enough...

I'm up to page 82, still loving this story!

 

Enjoy...  looks like you are still within the Tibet portion of the images...   All the regions are fascinating, but That Tibet area has a special appeal to me...  after more than 10-times visited Tibet Autonomous Region, there is still inspirations received each after each visit... 

 

I like your quote of ""Your life is a story, make it a good one"

 

You are also welcome to partake our upcoming "Train through the WonderLands" - a Cultural/Photographic Expedition by high-speed-train to Southwest China...: http://photoart.chebucto.org/2017-november.html  ...

That would be wonderful, but we are already booked to be in Paris during part of that time, however, let me know where I can find out about future journeys.

Many thanks. I am not against things technical, but technical stuff and the craft of photography are tools to be mastered in the service of making pictures that draw in the viewer. I do my best and spend time and a little money to master the craft, and I am happy to discuss these things, I present pictures to be viewed and (hopefully) to engaged with – whether I used a Summaron, Summicron, or Summilux doesn’t matter. If my pictures rise or fall on which lens I used, I’m in trouble.
 
 
Apropos of craft, I am a loud promoter of learning to print. Printing has classically meant on silver gelatin paper, but preparing a picture for presentation on a screen is also important and falls, IMO, under the term printing. The first job is to look at good prints, and to get a solid understanding of what a good print looks like. In this regard, it is useful to go to exhibits and look closely at what is on display. After learning where to point the camera, learning to print is the most important skill to develop – whether for silver paper and the wall, or for the computer screen. A good print is the best way to evoke that emotion that Picasso speaks of. In fact, I think the final success of a picture depends greatly on how well it is printed.

Excellent!  For future posts of this sort I strongly urge you to place at least one or two images directly on the forum along with the link to lure more of us into clicking through to see the entire piece.

      Ich verkaufe meine Leica D-Lux 7 mit Garantie bis Dezember 2020. Gekauft habe ich die Kamera am 11.12.2018 In Stuttgart bei einem Fotofachhändler. 
      Produktionsdatum der Kamera ist 11.2018.
      Original Lieferumfang: Originalverpackung, Leica D-Lux 7, Akku, 2 USB-Netzteile (US und Europa, unbenutzt), unbenutzte Handschlaufe, unbenutzter Blitz, unbenutztes USB-Kabel, Rechnung, Papiere.
      Zusätzlich lege ich in das Paket:
      * Automatikdeckel in silber (Original Panasonic/Leica) - quasi unverzichtbar
      * Gegenlichtblende in silber (JJC) mit passendem Deckel mit Innengriffmulden - sieht stylischer aus als der Automatikdeckel... 
      * 2 Pantona Akkus
      * Baxxtar Batterie Ladegerät
      Die Kamera hat ca. 150 Auslösungen (wenn es hochkommt).
      Die Kamera ist technisch und optisch natürlich top und m.E. von einem Neugerät nicht zu unterscheiden, da auf dem Display ab der ersten Sekunde ein hochwertiges Schutzglas von Brotect angebracht ist.
      Abholung bei einer Tasse Kaffee/Tee im Rhein-Main Gebiet nähe Hanau ist natürlich gerne möglich.
      Der Preis für das Komplettpaket ist 980 EUR incl. voll versichertem DHL Versand.
      Ich habe schon viel online/hier verkauft. Bisher waren alle Käufer zufrieden. Weitere Referenzen nenne ich gerne per PN.
      Fragen? Fragt gerne per PN.
      Bitte beachten: Ich möchte nicht tauschen. Ich lege nicht zurück. Ich biete keine Ratenzahlung an. Es handelt sich um einen Privatverkauf. Keine Garantie oder Gewährleistung durch mich, keine Rücknahme.

      Hello all,
      I have the 'level gauge' feature enabled on my Typ 109, which is supposed to show a green line in the viewfinder when the camera is level.
      My images have often been out of level, with horizons dipping to the right so often that I couldn't believe I was not paying attention to the level.
      I finally went out to test it today, and sure enough...a series of 8 photos, horizontal and vertical, all taken with careful attention to the green line, and all very badly out of level.
      I'll attach one example here...they are all consistently like this. Takes a 1.7 adjustment in LR to level the horizon.
      Wondering if this is a known issue? Can't imagine I'll send back to factory and wait 6mos for a repair...had to do that once already. I'll just turn it off. But I am disappointed!
      Thanks for any advice.
      --C

      Liebes Forum,
      mir wurde meine Leica D-Lux mit der Seriennummer 5077567 gestohlen. Ich wäre sehr dankbar für eine Nachricht, sollte sie Euch in irgendeiner Art über den Weg laufen. Der Diebstahl wurde bereits zur Anzeige gebracht.
      Danke!

      The Chinese believe in recording their every family member in meticulously recorded detail. These records are kept at the family home for generations, usually tended by an elder. I was very privileged to be shown this families records and, after some persuasion, was allowed to take his picture. But he only allowed me a few seconds and I had to work with what was available for light. Hope you like it. M9 with 35mm Summicron IV. If people are interested, I can post more of these travel portraits on this thread maybe. Or each as a separate thread? Mod advice please!

      Greetings!   
       
      I'd like to share with you another of my special China Cultural/Photographic Expedition photo-diaries:  
      “The Best of Inner Mongolia Expedition” -  
      http://photoart.chebucto.org/photos-folder/2016July_Best_of_Inner-Mongolia_Expedition_PhotoDiary.pdf
       
      Back from this 2016 July expedition, I thought I did not have enough good snapshots to form a photo-diary like most time I would do... so did not make it.  Although some of our expedition participants have been urging me to make the photo-diary for their record review... Only till in the last week that decided to sit down have it done as a record...  
       
      After all the vast grazing land in the eastern part of the Inner Mongolia, the northwestern China region's ritual celebration event, the amazing beauty of the desert in the western Inner Mongolia still running through my mind (although could not document well with those simple snapshots with a D-Lux5 pocket camera, but here I could not show you my film-slides shot with the M7...)
