We were on an outing and I was photographing something when my friend asked if I could help him. "Not now," I said. He responded, 'you are such are door knob." Little did he know what I was about to show him.

Yea, I'm in there somewhere. Those door knobs now cost more than my older camera!

Eric, I am throwing these windows at you, so I suggest you dodge and duck.

Thanks Peter! Not like that guy Eric who wants to throw Apple(s) at me. Of course, I deserve it because I did throw Windows (7) at him.

Yes, very cool. You have to enlarge this to make sense of it- as thing we know and recognize. At the small level, I thought I was I looking at cow grazing and some shack above the cow.

Uncanny that on day Oscar posted his trout fishing, I just came back from a walk in the woods where people were fishing in nearby pond.

Willow and forest. Finally some spring-like weather and blooms everywhere.

The colors work really well in the second one, interesting sense of depth too.

Spring Hormones

Can't quite remember the last time my hormones sprang into life; is there any quick way to check they are still there? Which of course, assumes that they ever were, but how could one tell? Is a love for photography a hormone-inspired phenomenon? It might be!

I also wonder whether a love for photography actually finds itself able to reside within the same skull that has apparently lost its drive for making photographs. I've been thinking recently of just taking the battery out of the one camera that currently houses such a thing because I don't want it to rot there, just as happens a couple of times in every life with torches.

The current problem is, really, that at the end of working on some pix the moment comes when one asks - at least, I do - so what happened, did the Earth really move? Most of the time it appears not to have budged one iota. There has to be a certain perversity in continuing along such barren routes, no?

(This is all about personal considerations, by the way, not about any pictures folks have posted here.)

Is the pleasure one of camera ownership, of one-upmanship, of constantly upgrading and spending more and more to get somewhere up at the top of the totem pole; is it of a sense of adventure even, or is it something born of habit and the fact that the money has been spent, so may as well use the purchase simply to justify it?

I know without doubt that the removal of the professional bit has turned the whole thing upside down for me; rather than any supposed freedom to "shoot for myself", there is suddenly no other self for whom to shoot, since pretty much all I did professionally in the final half of the career was largely self-motivated and packaged to anyone willing to finance the gig. And there the rub: finance is of the essence if I want to do the things I want to do. Big finance I do not have, and would not spend on those trippy things if I had it. It would be hollow. It needs the client belief in one's ability to deliver.

I suppose I would never have been a happy amateur, never seeing photography from that perspective even as a schooldboy: it was always going, sooner or later, to be the job, the entire life. I wonder if professional journalists get the same feeling at the ending of their working lives and begin to devote their remaining time to the book they will never publish? Or the pub?

Unfortunately, I don't know any retired journos so can't ask 'em.

I remember watching some movies by Man Ray. In them he showed a world as I'd seen when being about 4 years old.
All that is probably lost now :-(

But the way the picture is of a male peacock trying to impress the ladies and at the same time of getting rid of the intrusive photographer
