July 25, 2020 — San Gregorio, California; The past few days — My Office
Here’s the simple reason for my prolonged absence. Obsession. I’ve been deeply immersed in a Black and White post-processing and printing workshop which is taking me apart piece by piece as a photographer and gradually reassembling me with new eyes and new skills. I’m getting closer, but still not finished. (Not quite finished with the workshop. I’ll never be finished learning.)
This particular one has been a particular obsession. Still a work in progress. Although the ultimate creative decisions are mine, I’m nonetheless curious to see the responses of others. This group in particular.
Could you please offer me your thoughts on the following questions:
Which image has the most immediate impact? Why?
Which image lasts the longest for you — i.e. which would you want to live with? Why?
Thanks very much.
I’ll be back to regular blogdom as soon as I can. Meanwhile, stay well.
