Just like a snowflake, not another exactly the same to be found.

  1. You’ve got a leg up on ice pictures.

    Like Steve, I saw a leg — although I went a step further and had a passing thought about Gumby. There may have been another of your ice photos that I enjoyed more, but the combination of curves, layers, and textures in this one is terrific. There’s a lot to see, and to linger over.

    Ah, this photo is loaded with beautiful shapes, curves and mysterious things. My fantasy runs wild just looking at them.

    Wow, this one looks almost microscopic. Or perhaps a closeup of the legs/claws of a lobster or crab.

    I just found this guy’s youtube channel, and thought you might enjoy this hour of his Knopfler covers. It’s great working-at-the-computer music. I like acoustic, and I prefer instrumental for working. Otherwise, I start focusing on the words and lose my train of thought.

    • Thanks! I’ll mark that for future listening. I quickly looked at some of his other uploads and will watch some later on as well. I often put on a Pink Floyd or Clapton concert while working but this is likely less distracting. Not being a wordsmith like you, I almost always prefer instrumentals.

    Fabulous ice! It looks like a piece of textile art to me. πŸ™‚

    Wow. This has me smiling. The curved shapes look just like a Henry Moore sculpture. Or a Jean Arp relief. I love the black and white here, too. I like that you kept the lighter area in the lower left because it suggests 3-dimensionality. There’s a beautiful feeling of sinuous mystery.
    You have such a fine eye for a certain kind of curve and volume – I’m thinking of your Lady’s Slipper photographs. They have something in common with this one. Make sense?

    • It does make sense as I guess my eye for composition might be consistent across many subjects. Or not. πŸ˜€ I’ve been watching Alister Benn’s Expressive Photography vlogs, especially the interviews with photographers, such as Guy Tal and quite a few others. One thing I have heard which is encouraging is that not everyone has a specific way of looking at things and, like me, shoots more responsively than based on a specific outlook or drive to recreate what they have seen from other photographers..

        I know Guy Tal but not Alastair Benn. I like watching interviews with artists a lot. Not that different. The idea of shooting responsively is more appealing to me than the idea of having an agenda or specific idea in mind that you’re trying to photograph. Certainly, recreating what others do isn’t a goal that makes any sense to me, unless you’re trying to learn how someone did something, and then you move on to apply it to your own work.

      • I’ve become familiar with several photographers who I had not been aware of through his interviews and sharing of their images. It is at once inspiring and also a bit of a lesson about working harder.

        I guess what I meant more than agenda was the pursuit of “personal style”. I am not sure whether my images could be said to be immediately recognizable and in a way I prefer that.
