Yes, Alain, I have, as I have also read most of the articles, with great relish!, on your site. If you click the link in my signature, View my blog, and read the latest entry, you might say that I am just trying too hard. And you may be right. But Alain, I am intrigued as to how/why you have decided to move into the abstract. I have been reading your latest articles. Clearly, doing the abstract, which is where I see myself heading, since I am becoming bored with straight photography, has to require more than just experimentation? I can put together a dozen or so stuff and invent a reason to put on a show, but that just feels too arbitrary to expect something significant.
As some of my friends above have been trying to tell me, I can't expect to just "think" a significant project into existence. I know it doesn't work that way necessarily. It just seems to me that the discipline of determining a vision, however that is done, planning for it, and at least coming up with an idea for each photo in the collection that supports the main theme has got to yeild more unified collections or more time and much practice. Alain, even in some of your articles with exercizes, you seem to promote this. On John Paul Caponigro's site, he goes so far as to even make general sketches in advance before you even go out; very general sketches of simple line/shape objects that depict the overall design of each image in the series. I know that there are times when just pulling together a dozen or two of your latest abstracts can also work as a collection approach.
