Died at age ~45. Such a short life.

Maybe the ones we lose young are compensated for (the rest of us) by the ones who live long...?

Well, at least we are still here to appreciate his work. Thanks for the link Rob. What a wonderful photographer. The film also allowed me to put a name to an artist I liked many years ago: Bridget Riley.

An interesting video.

What it really reminded me was my Distance Education training. First and foremost, hearing and or readability is the key. I struggled with text.

Yes, white subtitles on white don't work so well.

However to be fair, it was a promo for an exhibition in Tours, France... which is apparently going to "resonate" with another in Lyon during the Biennale (which I'm happy about, since I live in Lyon).

So it was aimed at French speakers, and the spoken commentary was very clear, even for a non-native speaker.

It was just a reminder. I occasionally used to take stills with video crews, mainly "talking heads" for online posts. I was amazed at how often the video crew would emphasise how important the sound was.

Indeed, even on professional tv there are very good and not-so-good interviews.

It certainly isn't a matter of volume, it's one of clarity to the ear, and the absence of echo which, for my ageing ears, is a killer. This can hit me even in restaurants when they fill up: multi-directional echo off walls creates a cacophany through which my knife ain't sharp enough to cut.

It also happens on some Internet videos, and my solution there is to put on my earphones which make for a cleaner, non-bouncing sound. Imagine being a dog in the city: no wonder some go nuts and bite!

Thanks for that, Rob. Fine, fine photos. Lovely tones and gorgeous grain texture in the prints too.
