Narcissism rampant.

Ah, now we see you clearly, Rob.

Rob,

I think you are right about the "Big Selfie" idea.
I remember Minor White commenting that every photo is a portrait of the photographer.
For me, I think the urge to photograph comes partly from the notion that my photographs look more interesting than I do.

Another pic from my trail walk a couple days ago. Lately I've taken lotsa photos of park benches (sans lichen), algae, flowing streams and eroded rock. What kind of selfie is that?  :D

Apart from being a nice study of colours and texture, the selfie element is obvious: frustration at the injury that prevents the flow of music. Embodied in the image is the difficulty of flow: the minute but, collectively, devastating hinderances to where you want to be. The topography screams difficulty. That's what drew you.

That'll be $750, thank you very much.

Eric


How did you know I have a Samsung Smart tv? Perhaps it's due to the old problem of all great minds thinking alike - despite what Slobodan maintains. So, a double portrait, then. (Twofie?)

Two things:

1. I, too, would love a Mustang rather than a T-shirt;

2. as thumbnail, the girl's underlayer of pale clothing reminds me of the early days of Playboy, where it was sexy - I think? - for models to show areas of untanned skin where the bikini would have been. I think it made them seem more, well, naked? Or should that be nude, if spoken of within art circles? Is this an art circle?

Note that you also get a profile shot of the woman in the guy's glasses... :)

Now this is a funny one. Somehow it ticks lots of boxes for a dramatic street photo, there is a little tip of the hat to Fan Ho, and when I put it on 500px it got lots of love.

But it leaves me a little cold. Maybe if the woman with the pale underwear was doing the pedaling ?

I know what you mean: I think the trouble is that the guy looks like he's dressed up to pose in a commercial photoshoot ( maybe he was on his way to one ).

In every other way I really like it.

A minor key Blues Bro' does nobody any harm...

Rather like it; without any Chinese justification at all.

Nah, taking your advice (before you gave it) I just set the timer, tossed the camera in the air and let it take the photo. Self removal!  ;)

David, I think you need help. Hire an assistant.

Regarding the photographic aspect: should the assistant throw the working camera into the air, would that be plagiarism? Can you sue a camera?

The upside to having a "summer" with a near-constant influx of cool-ish northern air (in contrast to the roasting other parts of the US are receiving) is gettting to enjoy cloudscapes like this multiple times per week. Took this via iPhone outside my neighborhood coffee emporium earlier this afternoon.

Thanks, Eric; closer than you might seriously think.

In my working days it was all about showing whatever was being worn, and that usually meant frontal lighting. I would love the opportunity of using some of the same people in similar backlit situations as those two sunflowers found themselves occupying. Okay, the same people but as they were back in the 60s and 70s. After that it was all calendars, and that isn't something I really crave anymore. Well, unless somebody offers me a nice packet of money, that is. Ever the commercial whore! Can whores live in hope? But for sure, granted a return to the days of yore, fashion would rule. Having said which, my mind returns to some of the fabric horrors that I did have to shoot... maybe no sweeping statements of desire after all, then.

;-)

Indeed, that's really green and yellow!
I like them both.
