    Hi everyone,

    I just put together a little photo essay on my new blog, wanted to hear what people think. Maybe we can talk about it here after you've gone thorugh it. It's my first time doing this kind of thing, so I'd also appreciate any technical feedback. Thanks,

    Hi Gabriel - Your blog is interesting. I posted a response, but I'm not sure if it worked.

    I, too, try to look for form, but in the natural landscape, which I think is more difficult than in urban settings. Where I work, the forest is a tangled mess from which it is difficult to abstract a simple image.

    Hi Dario,

    Thanks, I think that's one of the most interesting ways to go about photographing, not having a preconceived idea or subject matter, but rather finding it in the process of actually looking through the camera. I didn't see a comment on the blog, so it must not have come through. Oh well, stay tuned, I'll be putting up an interview I did recently w a street artist here in Tel Aviv, a side interest of mine that's been developing lately. Regards,
