Another good grab, Rob. You make me strain at the bit and want to get out and do that kind of shooting. Instead I'm gonna have to shoot a play's dress rehearsal on Sunday. I enjoy doing that, but it's not the same kind of enjoyment as street is.

I understand only too well.

I'm almost dizzy trawling this little coastal resort looking for stuff that will have vanished come the clean-up, and summer's tourist crush. I crave the rush of a city and its constantly renewed landscape of motifs and people and the signs of life. Realistically, though, the real estate economy appears to indicate that I will end my days here instead. Could certainly be a lot worse: at least I have a home!

Is that your window? The one with the light on?   ;)

No, its not ... but when I walked around to get rid of a &%#) headache I watched out whether somebody else was awake, too. of course there were. No bad photographic opportuity, artificial light in the blue hour. In the evening theres too much of it, in the morning just few spots, quite nice. But, honestly, Id rather like to sleep that time ...

I sympathize. I'm pretty good at sleeping at that hour of the day. That's why I don't have any good (or bad) sunrise shots.   ;)

Seeing my snap above just now, the attached alt version seems kinda obvious. Duh

If you look at Keith's website you will realise that the two pictures from India fit perfectly within his highly developed visual ethic of colours and unconfused motif.

There is seldom any unnecessary item or distraction within the frame. That really does take a lot of confidence and, also, instant recognition of what's right when the image has to happen quickly.

Just another of the things you have or do not have in your box of tools. Or at least, so I believe.

Another thing I note is this: how remarkable the apparent ease of transition from a world based on 6x6 to a different one based on 24 x 36!

Rob, I'd put that down to a background as a painter and illustrator working with no end of differing formats. What hasn't been quite so easy has been the transition from tripod based shooting to handheld: my hands have become less steady with age :-(

I don't find that my hands shake much, but what has changed is that instead of the usual 1/125 or 1/250 speeds that were my normal zone, digital has pushed me way up the range and the lens more often than not almost wide open. Perhaps because DOF no longer matters much, and I have no need to show a sense of location just to keep clients happy and justify travel.

I agree, though, that 6x6 was almost inevitably tripod-bound! Thank God I left that behind.

I can't agree with you about this, Rob. My 6x6 Mamiya 6 RF camera was such a joy to use, and I never once put it on a tripod. It was really easy to hand-hold, and it's the one camera I really regret leaving behind when I went over to the (digital) Dark Side.

Cheers,

Eric
