    Ralph,
    I am glad you are aboard. I really appreciate your warped sense of humor. I gotta get my "Clown/Politician" photos scanned!

    Well, interesting question and here is my comment, and I will not bring politics into this. But be warned, I am an artist so those who don't think photography is art or artists who question what they or others do should not post, be warned

    I have recently had another exhibition. http://www.photospace.co.nz/expo085.htm

    I had worked on this for some time and the theme was personal to me on several levels. I ended up hanging a large body of work that was to be viewed as one work. Of late much of the way I see has been influenced by Renaissance painters and the work of a New Zealand artist Colin McCahon. I wanted to look, like McCahon did, at the spiritual relationship that I have with the sea and the land. The show was successful on some levels, I got good feedback, sold the work to a collector and people told me they liked the show.

    BUT.

    I felt ambivalent when I hung it and each time I came back to it I looked at it and thought no, its not good enough, its too personal, too obvious and pretty. I had spent too much time when I was putting the show together thinking will it sell, not is it what I wanted to show and showed images to people to get their opinions.

    Anyway what I am saying here is that I made a decision as the show came down that I must do what I want and have subsequently begun revisiting the idea and re-shooting and refining the idea without any outside input. This is way way outside my comfort zone but I think its going to work.

    In this case my getting outside the box is going to be trusting, completely, my own judgement

    Ralph:

    I hope that was an ANALOG shot of Mickey...You know that digital images of crime scenes are inadmissable in the court of APUG...

    For all the talk about thinking outside the box, there's a few people here I'd like to see think INSIDE the box... just once!

    Thinking out of the box for me would be waterfalls, landscapes, church interiors, dog portraits, and nudes. Now what the hell do I do?? Guess I'll stick to brightwork on '37 Plymouths.

    David, I think you've hit upon a niche. This and the other one you posted truly connect with the spirit of Weegee. When will we see a good crime scene shot? :o

    I think I'm stuck inside the box.

    And then someone comes along and finds one of my images disturbing. So to them, I guess I'm outside the box.

    I'm still looking for the boundary of the f*****' box.

    Guess it's better to be two places at once than nowhere at all.

    Anyone can appreciate a fine print. But it takes a real photographer to appreciate a fine negative.
