One more shot of "Rapunzel." These were shot as JPEG so it was quite difficult to work with especially it was about two stops underexposed. I had to go with B&W and added grain.

Leighton, this

http://www.fredmiranda.com/forum/topic/929565/3178#11752569

is really a good picture!

50mm f/1.2 contrast is excellent @ f/2, great aperture choice.

And thank you (to George, Philippe and Jeff too) for your kind comment on my picture some pages ago.

Wow John, I like this one

Great light and composition (and PP?).

When was the last time you tried listening Curtis? Pink Floyd's Dark Side of the Moon is a towering masterpiece of almost unquantifiable quality. No where else has anyone put down to music the feelings of life, death, and the stresses of one trying to make sense of their tiny life in the grand scheme of the world. Side one of that album, from the first heart beat of "Breathe" (a life is born), all through the end to death in "The Great Gig in the Sky", is an astonishing creative achievement. Absolutely unparalleled.

I used to love that album

You haven't been around long enough Tom to know that I've done volunteer work for the last 15 years with folks approaching the end of their lives. I'm the volunteer Intake Coordinator for the Living/Dying Project and have shared the journey of many who eventually died. I'm currently working with a fifty year old woman with a nine year old son in the end stage of ALS. I don't need to listen to lyrics of any song on the subject of life's meaning. I explore that subject each week with a person whose journey has been much like yours, though without the relief you appear to have found. She will leave her son and die, likely within the next year.

As Samy's comment suggests, the meaning we find in music changes much as our lives change. I've never liked Bach, but I'm mesmerized by his Cello Sonatas which have been playing on the CD in my car for about four months... without stop. Clearly, I didn't meet Pink Floyd when that music might have spoken to me. Now, it holds no interest for me. I'd much prefer a Tchaikovsky violin concerto or a Beethoven string quartet. I also love Alison Krause and the Union Station... lest anyone believe I'm a snob about such things. I love the Dixie Chicks and Tom Wait and a delicious young woman named Ingrid Michaelson who sells her records independently.

I have deep respect for each of us as we find the support we need during our lives, whether that comes from a tab of acid, music that speaks to our soul or a zafu and a day in a zendo. Different strokes. But to Jose's comment about desert island music, for me it would be Beethoven's string quartets.

ALS, absolutely brutal. I flew down to Hong Kong to be tested by a specialist to see if I had ALS. Thankfully I did not. I commend you for your work Curtis.

Beethoven's late string quartets are sublime.

Definitely the late quartets...

Here is a series of articles I wrote about a man in his forties with ALS who left his young daughter. I worked with him for two years...

A Graceful Journey

I was shooting Canon at the time...

Amazing article, perfectly written. I wish I brought my copy of the Diamond Sutra with me to China.

Stories like this, rightly or wrongly, make me embarrassed to be such a gear head with cameras. I place so much importance on the minutia of camera gear. It seems ridiculous after reading your article.

Again, I cannot overemphasize how wonderful your work with these people is.

Welcome home Mark, I like this one the best. What's up with the trees?


Thanks Leighton. The trees were badly damaged by hurricane Juan and those that survived succumed to an invasion by the pine borer beetle. because of the glacial formed landscape the soil is quite thin over granite rocks so they never develop really strong root systems making them vulnerable to the increasingly common storms.

A wideangle reminder of where I was a week ago Ray. Both are such excellent use of the fisheye! Ray, how did the first one get the yellow treatment, reminds me of the 35 1.4N

I love how the bow railing echos the curvature of the earth. I know this was not just happenstance and that you planned it, very well seen!

Thanks Laura. I don't believe it was recently restored.
