from boxbrownie, "pelicans at port macquarie" - guess they've claimed the spot! katrin bechhold, a repro of a very nice tintype, detailed and graphic.... brucs mccaughey/steelbar, "a peaceful place", a very appealing image, and on this warm day, want to wade right in!
One more postcard from this exchange: Jake Willam's "wondering and dreaming". I like this print very much. Amazingly, I don't know what I'm looking at, even though I can guess. But it really does not matter, because every time I look at this photo a memory from one of my dreams come to me, as if I'm going somewhere on a train via trans-Siberian railway; I'm looking outside of the fogged and dirty window and seeing the Pyramids of Giza passing by. I know, it makes not sense whatsoever, but that's the feeling I get looking at this picture
Postacards from Bluejeh and Bluejeh2 came in today's mail. Nifty Heron from Bluejeh2 and an etheric detail of sails from Bluejeh. Much appreciated, thank you very much!
Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming– “Wow! What a Ride!”
Received a card today from Nova Scotia - thanks George.
Thanks for persevering!
“Photography is a complex and fluid medium, and its many factors are not applied in simple sequence. Rather, the process may be likened to the art of the juggler in keeping many balls in the air at one time!”
