Reflections: For Gav

Here’s another one for you, Gav. Helios 44-2 (one of my favourite lenses ever- imported from Romania)
ForGav>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> 60 x 40 (customizable) Canvas/gallery wrap available for purchase here.

This is why I said your Puddle Tree reminded me of my work. 🙂 (And it does, no?) I get so inspired by dreary days and rain, don’t you?

And on that note, I’m up with the chickens today and will be taking a photo walk down by the tracks behind my place. There’s a creek and some interesting foliage and such; I’ll see what I can grab down there. (Check back later!) As always, thanks for always being such an inspiration in the world of black and white and to all other monochromejunkies such as (yourself and) me. 😉

    A tree dreamt it was a pool of water,
    upon reflection it vanished in the ripples –
    only to return to itself in a moment of calm. 🙂

        Ask your doctor to prescribe some and you will feel like you all ready did. 😀

  7. Your photography is stunning! Who/what inspires you?

    • Hey, thanks, Millie. :0) As for inspiration, I would have to say solitude. But also, I believe every place/person/thing has a story. I like to think of myself as an “artist with a camera” rather than a photographer, you know? I’m a bit of a voyeur and feel that there’s a story waiting to be told in any location. My job is to be very still and listen. And then retell what the place (or thing) is telling me- but without words. I’m fascinated by writers in that you guys take the visual OUT of the story, and you create one with only words. What I do is the exact opposite. Both sides are fascinating to me. Thanks for stopping by! :0)

      • Thanks for the breakdown of your process and photography methodology. You have an interesting eye and an interesting life, and I’m looking forward to more of your posts. : )

      • If an “interesting life” means cramming for finals in jammies (round the clock) then yes- my life is VERY interesting…heheh. Thanks again for stopping by!
