Quote from: Rob C on October 19, 2018, 03:26:30 pmOscar, in your last paragraph, why do you want to, or how can you separate decomposition from purely chemical effect and its resultant pigmentation signals? That's chemistry, and possibly entirely removed from the spiritual sophistry of mankind with its inquisitive conceits, its assumptions - or at least expectations - of a greater affinity with everything that exists. Yes, we do all, roughly, share the same neighbourhood, but perhaps our family units, in the sense of the family of man, are slightly more restricted in bandwidth and thus able to retain distinct areas of unconnectedness. Entirely remote passengers on the same spaceship.It's at least a possibility.
Quote from: opgr on October 19, 2018, 03:55:47 pmWell, i once caught an interesting tidbit of information, one of those seemingly irrelevant little microbits of data that shouldn't clog the gray cells but does much like dust accumulated in the corner of the room where the vacuumcleaner can't reach because of the round shape of the nozzle, and it more or less was something like this: trees actually expend additional energy to turn the color of their leaves???Sure there is a possibility that our coexistence is purely random and determined by mere chance, or even perhaps by the hand of god, but, well, he (or she, i don't want to be condemned for being politically incorrect here) has bestowed upon me an inquisitive mind. So what's one to do during a dry spell of photo opportunity?

Quote from: Rob C on October 21, 2018, 05:29:38 amI suppose that what Oscar has just said is where I find myself today: walking about, now and then, carrying a camera I would rather not have to carry. Why can't my head be the only camera I need?This leads me to a few ideas or conclusions about the status quo:1. I do not really like cameras as much as I used to think that I did - or perhaps acually did;2. cameras are really the weak but essential link in the artist's imagination train; weak because they compel a set of restrictions which then have to be navigated and turned into positives, but worse, cameras make the photographer obvious at the same time. I am aware of the argument that those very restrictions can give rise to identity or style, call it what you wish;3. not ever being subject to that image-oriented creative desire might really be a better state in which to be.I base no.3 on the observation that all of the many people I know, who are devoid of creative urges similar to mine, seem to be every bit as content - or more so - with their lot than do I. For a start, they all appear to enjoy far more disposable income in their dotage!Rob
