salut raphael !
i was not able to visit his home, and someday i would LOVE to go there. we stayed near montbeliard between there and besancon ...
unfortunately not a lot of travel this year, maybe the next time though
thanks bill !
i appreciate your kind words -
Your always looking thru "different eyes", John.... I do admire your work very much, keep surprising us.... Bill
Have you take advantage of your trip in eastern France to actually visit the Nicephore's house, in Saint Loup de Varennes ?
I know it's almost South-Esatern France, but it worth the distance. I did it last year, there are no so much things to see, but this is a very nice, quiet and stirring place to see.
Here is a link of a few shots I took then
Interesting work, as usual, btw
thanks stone ..
all you have to do is look at clouds in the sky
or in your coffee and you will find the answers you seek ...
Someday your work will be famous like Jackson Pollock, and I still won't quite understand it .... but it's pretty at least haha
thank you so much for your kind words.
i will be getting a mat spray to coat my prints with
to see if i can try my luck with watercolors and inks instead of photoshop.
i have been doing it a little bit with the cyanotypes, but they are more abstractions
than anything else we'll see ... i look at eddie's hand colored photos and am in awe ..
i see how hard it is just to add colors to a photogram never mind a "realist" photograph ...
thanks for your encouragement!
I found your other post first and came to this one later. Whatever digital method is used I liked the colors very very much. Compositions and unsharp areas are excellent. Its quite suprising to know that you were a bw artist and switched to color as that powerful ideas and quality. I am not sure you could color a positive with that quality with analog methods. Digital photography and painting with photoshop brushes is a huge widely used hobby and to stand up with it is difficult in crowd. Its also suprising to know you are using photoshop that well I think your architect background support it. I think software makers and I are different people especially cad softwares I could not draw a triangle whatever the cad program is. Keep it going.
i am doing the newfangled-way
this image is made using PS, and
is ephemeral rather than something
that is tangible ... its giving me practice
for when i do it with physical paints, and brushes &c.
