Movement Along the Journey’s Path

 

Yes, there is some movement along the path of the creative journey. I have been thinking that I have not chronicled the journey very well on this blog but there is a thread throughout the whole site, if you can find it.

Most folks (are there any folks looking in?) will not follow the site that closely so I need to rethink this whole journey thing.

There has been over the years preceding my return to image making, a distinct reaction on my part to the images I was seeing from other photographers. Many had a very unnatural cast to them of which I was not fond. I have always had a very traditional eye and had worked within the limits of film and paper and processing to achieve a natural image. This is still true and evidenced by my excitement about Jon Olsen’s work.

My re immersion into image making has me reading MANY photo mags and looking at many web sites. I keep seeing more and more images that have a highly processed quality. Then, my sweetie, pointed out to me how much she liked these images. Aha!

Well, I have given it a shot. It is a new creative path. I kinda like it. I will continue to pursue “natural”, but… what excitement in these discoveries!

    the wintry lake with the naked branches is somewhat disturbing….what were you thinking?

      Winter brings a whole new landscape in my eyes. The form of the earth is exposed. The details of the trees are open to inspection and very beautiful. I love the high contrast of ice and snow and naked branches. Nothing dark, just another version of beautiful and striking.
