Re: Slab

I don't dislike it, and it seems to be well taken and well balanced. I am asking myself why it has less impact for me than your other recent architectural-type abstracts. I think maybe because it doesn't seem to imply the movement that the others did via angle or light. It's pleasing and restful, bu...

Re: the pack

That's wonderful Piet, though your imagination can sometimes creep me out. I was happy until I looked close enough to realize who the enfolding backdrop was.

Well crafted fantasy.

Hint: Watch for this month's Masters.

Re: Lila June

Came to visit with me yesterday. She did bring her 4month old brother but that ended up to be a bust. ;-) The hardest session I could have is two very small ones. Another fine portrait, Ernst, in a classic style that could have been taken in the 50's. My favorite kinds of portraits. These are the o...

Re: Cross Over the Chautauqua Bridge

I am old but not old enough to remember Chatauquas which at least in the South were sort of like combination arts festival and tent revival. The only remaining Chautauqua site I know of in the state is in Crystal Springs. Some of the old structures, including a "tabernacle" and this bridg...

Re: Bethel Church

Minnie, This is my first post, so I may get it all coffluggied. In the first photo, the print on the pages is too muddy for me, but it may have been that way or it may be these aging eyes. Both the book and the page, I thought, could benefit from some highlighting or brightening -- not sure which o...

Oh, a longer exposure with them entering the frame, standing still, then exiting might have done the trick. Neat! S-

Re: Fort Gaines Part 2

I especially like that first one, with the reflection of the arch in the humidifier, er, puddle. ... I was thinking the same and while my eye wants this more in the center of the archway its overridden by the 'need' to know what down that hall. Like leading lines that are ignored for something grea...
