Voodoo.
Who do?
He do.
He do what?
He reminds me of the man.
What man?
The man with the power.
What power?
The power of the voodoo.
Who do?
He do.

You see the perils of getting involved with photography? Nothing is ever normal again. Perhaps that's just as well.

Would have preferred it aganst the sea, but it's hard to move either boat or bike - owning neither!

I was thinking; what if you simply asked the owner.

Might end up being the sunbathing topless dame on the front deck. She wouldn't bother getting dressed for moving the bike a few yards, and as she flicks her leg over the seat and moves the bike, you try not to stare in any particular direction so as to make yourself look less like the dirty old fool you are.

"Is this spot okay?", she asks, as she throws you a smile.
"Yes, that's perfect!", you answer.
"Want me to stay on the bike?", she continuous.
"Oh yes, please do stay on the bike!"

and you take a snap, and then move around a bit to take a couple more shots to at least look like you know what you're doing. Yes, you almost feel like a professional again.

At home you quickly upload your images and find 5 pictures of an empty bike parked in front of a boat...

Thanks for sharing anyway.

A Miami facade as a Sydney step... This is surreal. Definitely an art nouveau.

Thank you chaps,

Despite a Victory for Victor - he may well become Victor the Vanquished with some haste while Nikolaus Karpf's Linhof Lingers and Karl Koch's Sinar Stands Steady.

Cheers,

Were photography tennis, I'd say: YOU CAN NOT BE SERIOUS!!!!!

Say I misinterpreted what you just wrote - please?

Or, just wrap it all up safely and post it to Mallorca but don't expect a cheque by return!

I never was into Latin American music very much; have one Astrud Gilberto LP on Verve, and that's enough for this rock 'n' roller's collection. It sounds terribly nice, though...

But your cover shot's more interesting!

Such hard work!

Trogging up the Ganges, down the Mississippi, along the Yellow and over the Red. Why do I do this?

You read my mind...  I had just said to myself that I'd like to know what is "nesting"" upper right in the first...then scrolled down and you'd already provided part f the answer...feels almost like stork territory... I would really enjoy seeing your work from time to time...I'd like to know more about how you "see"... so these two are much appreciated.... maybe you'd offer more now and again?

...to lure the innocent. (ok, maybe not completely innocent). You know how much I am enjoying your recent "details", but there is something more here which I have been unable to pin down yet... keep it going Rob!

Patricia,

I'm currently reading Keith Richards' semi-autobiographical book Life.

Unfortunately, I'm not a musician, and when he starts to explain chord changes, how one attracts the other and the reasons for five-string tuning, I look for another coffee because the birds are flying way over the top of my head. But, importantly, when he chats about writing songs and playing the music, he says that it seems as if the thing's doing it by itself. With that I can identify completely. It mirrors (oh those damned mirrors again!) my own experience with photography: the picture comes to me, and I am not really convinced that I'm playing much of a rôle other than that of carrying the camera about like bait. I am fully aware that this can sound horridly pretentious, but I honestly do think it's how things work out for some of us. Even in pro life I used to fly on faith, and faith brought me through. I never questioned myself nor the how - I just did it.

Photography is basically so goddam simple an endeavour that it just has to be something else that makes it click or otherwise.
