A fantastic b/w gallery. Very dramatic images. v.
I love your BW work, dramatic, contrasted and always very well composed. Voted.
This one is great too Barri!
I love Bolt, Drilling block, Suntree and Token Creek.
They are a step higher, in my humble opinion!
The old tools, the ancient worn wood, are these in your work studio? (Cool) Your house? (I fear for your safety - get out now before the roof falls down around your head.) The textures and shapes are great - slow motion erosion.
Thank you Simon
I really enjoy B+W photograpy, it's not that I don't like color, I just think B+W is more graphic and sometimes more moody. Thanks much.
A really good gallery Barri, some great images here.
Shadows on Old Wood I thought was absolutely stunning.
Keep up the good work.
Yeah I've got, and have had a lot of pics that I wished were better, on my site, then sometimes if I get a better one of similar subject, I replace the old one (I wished that would happen more-hahaa). True about human nature too. I'm lucky in that I live in a city of around 200,000 so it's big enough to get some city shots (before they tear all the interesting stuff down)..and close to the country too (although that is changing fast). LOL on the one eye. Yeah I did some, but not that much B+W in film, and even in digital before maybe a year or so back, I do think there are some things mood wise etc. that B+W does that color doesn't...and vice versa. Thanks Tom for comments.
Yes.. it takes years to have a nice gallery. But that's why we're here, I think. To help get each other out, and shoot. Discuss, and learn.. or I like to anyway. I know right now, I'm adding things I don't really like but have. I'll be glad when I have enough I DO like, to have at least a few few galleries even close to the quality of yours.
I think we do like shooting a lot of the same type things, I just have a hard time finding them in the city. Human Nature... we want what we Can't have.
I always enjoy coming by to see your site, the black and white is wonderful. But to tell you the truth.. I spent so much time developing it years ago, I've lost my taste for shooting it. But I still love to have a look, funny the way things work.
Thanks again for shareing, Tom
P.S. Oh heck man.. about the EVF thing....
try closing one eye! LOL "grin"
But I know what you mean, Me... Too!
I think you have said it very well, and it is true about seeing. I've got to challenge myself all the time to "see differently", I think that is the hardest part in any art form, after people get by the basics. And, and if a person doesn't do that, they soon become bored...sorta like "writers block" maybe. I wished I could "see" compostions with my eyes, and then pick up a camera...rather than having to see them through the viewfinder or on LCD first, only once in a while can I do this. I enjoy your galleries Tom, very much. I find we have much in common in what we like to shoot . Takes a while to get them together eh? I've been on for about 6 months and I've only about 500 pics on, some I see are at 2000 or more. wow.
Great Gallery as usual Barri,
If you think about it, people love to see things that are different than accustomed to.
For me, shooting around Atlanta is a drag.. I've seen it all my life. People who live in the country might enjoy it. Maybe not my gallery, but City Galleries! So I enjoy looking at landscapes, because there are so few Large, open and green areas here. But someone that see's it everyday would love to come to Atlanta (and would probably do a much better job than I) to shoot. Looking through a lens requires the child like wonderment that we lose so much of as we grow. We spend so much time Relearning to see what was natural. Or.. that's what it feels like to me, while some people retain a larger amount. It shows in How they shoot, and with the quality of photographers on pabse it's natural that everyone wonders to different type sites.
Heck.. I don't know what I'm talking about, Maybe I missed the entire thing!
Now I'll shut up, lol.
Anyway, Thanks for shareing.
Fabienne. Donc désolé j'ai effacé vos commentaires avec le mauvais bouton, mais ont été beaucoup apprécié. Barri
Thanks much Vincent, and yes I've noticed this also, about the loose assortment...and I don't exactly know what it is, the people I notice all have very differing styles, and differing subject matter etc. You have given me something to ponder ;-)
Beautiful collection of B&W; interesting that Matias was here and loved this gallery also. It seems that there is a loose assortment of photogs. on pbase that catch the attention of one another.
This gallery is a must. My personal favorite of your whole site. The loneliness and the pure design of your objetives is trully a master work. I really have njoyed visiting your stuuf dude. Thanks a lot for posting all this here.
