Looking at it another way…

Photography is such a subjective art.. Always looking to see things in a different light… as it were… The hints and tricks abound… Leading lines , and placement of the ‘subject’ in certain areas of the frame. Quadrants, and zone focusing… Adams, and Cartier-Bresson, and any number of flash (HAH!) in the pan photographers. Fashion photographers, and street photographers, and landscape photographers… Papparazzi… Any style of photographer you can come up with… there’s a practitioner out there who claims it for the one true style… Don’t get me started on style… But as long as you take what is good, and can see your way through the pretentious and the merely stylistic nonsense… as long as you can see your way through the fluff of another trying to convince you to join their cult… you’ll be okay… Don’t let the naysayers and the “anything, as long as it’s new…” campers get to you… In whatever you do… Business, or teaching, or the law… politics… you have to decide. Will you be a sheep, following the …

It’s that time of year again…

(Chills which seem to get chillier and, um… chillier… each and every year… by golly by gum…) So I search… For items which can inure me against the cold, and ensure I can endure for longer and longer periods outdoors. (… for someone trying to stay out-of-doors, I think I got all those “in”-type words used in the correct sense…) Anywho, there I am… Scouring my part of the world, for the perfect item of winter wear…   Such as gloves…   Gloves that lets one operate all the buttons and dials of a DSLR, without necessitating the removal of said items specifically designed for the protection of …

New Brrrrrr-england, it is…

It has, apparently, been something of a slow news week, here in that part of the country known as New Brrrrrr-england. The radio and television, and even the print media (what little of it I ever pay attention to) has been positively abuzz with stories of how cold this winter has been, and of how there’s no end in sight. Well… I mean… Where the heck have they been all this time? The Bahamas? Don’t the intrepid reporters for the media ever even step foot outside? Or are they whisked from newsroom to assignment to home to the newsroom once more, by some sort of vacuum-sealed transportation device invented by Rupert Murdock, on his breaks from corrupting the journalism industry and hacking into the private phone lines of just about everyone everywhere…? Kinda like a giant climate-controlled zip-lock baggie from the nether-regions… Don’t they read this blog, by golly by gum…?
