Summer Birches by Stefan Berndt, auf Flickr

I was too lazy to set up the tripod, thus blurry and/or unsharp . A shame, I know. Like the light anyway.

Russ, Eric and Peter - thanks for the vote of confidence; it's a bit ironic that that establishment has been waiting for me so long, though I did visit a few years ago, but with a different attitude. Maybe the rain put me in the mood as it did the place. I really have reached a point where sunshine pretty much puts the camera away.

Looks sharp enough to me. But I admit my interest in sharp is fast "on the wane" these days. Nice light for sure, and nice tones in the photo.

Hello Rob, long time no speak.

Is this the place you have been wanting to shoot for ages? I recall you mentioning an industrial type area close by some years ago.

Hi Riaan,

Yes, it's only about 20mins away by car (using the by-pass systems to avoid chaotic town traffic) but as with so many things, it gets put to the back of the list... I feel amazed that I still have lists!

Another thing on the list is trying to get official access, but as I am also caught up in the annual shutter-varnishing ritual... for myself, the thing would really come into its own as a location for fashion pix, but as I don't have any of those to do, I suppose I might just shoot stuff and save it as effect files for any model stuff that may come along with the lottery win. I would choose the lottery win first, though.

The heat had started in earnest, but it has been a long, slow winter, not as cold as usual but looong.

All the best to you and the Blonde.

Rob

But I am cheerful, Slobodan; either cheerful or high on marine varnish fumes.

At least that's legal here.

I understand...I pass all kinds of things while I take a drive to clear my head.  I see all kinds of possible subjects. Nothing jumps out on these drives. It takes time for me to be receptive. Often a subject will emerge years later. A certain time of day, a difference in light and weather and all of a sudden I'm into a start of a body of work that could take three years to complete. Totally consuming me...

Try explaining that to somebody who hasn't spent their life working in the graphic arts!

Though it can be a bit of a real bitch sometimes, I really wouldn't have been able to a work at anything else and stay sane. The beauty of the thing is that you never switch off by the clock: it can be as compelling at midnight as at ten in the morning. Those dry periods we all hit are only - for me - a product, of the amateur state - a luxury, perhaps; it never happened to me during the working years. In fact, my appetite was insatiable.

People not in the arts, whatever type, don't get it...And I think that's a good thing.

Thanks, Keith

I've a few more from the power station visit - surprising what a quick shoot can offer if the place has potential. Reminds me of Bailey's famous throwaway line about Jean Shrimpton: "She's the cheapest model in the world because you only need to shoot half a roll of film and you've got the shot."

I know this is the WP thread, and no how-to-improve-it comments are wanted, but regarding your old guy in India, I just wanted to indicate to anyone wondering about photographic balance etc. that they should consider the sunlit spot on the right, and how well it strikes an equilibrium within the whole. Take that away, and it alters everything. These are the kinds of details that might look accidental but are anything but, and give you immediate framing clues on what feels right as you look through the camera.

As that's dangerously close to describing/defining art, I think it a good moment to retreat.

:-)

Rob, I believe you are right. That said, sometimes, particularly when speed is of the essence, framing, by necessity, becomes instinctive rather than considered.
