I had to get close with the 28mm on and I thought this guy was going to clobber me with his hammer.

Leighton, that's ^ very, very nice B&W! I like your framing and the textures a lot, including the smoke.

Paul, I like the light in the curtains too. From your "Potsdamer Platz"-series the last one is my personal fav.

Chuong, this Rapunzel-portrait is very nice too. Going B&W and adding grain was a good idea (my personal motto is "In doubt make it B&W, add grain and print it really large" ;-).

Steve, very cool pepper-macro!

Haha you're quite right on that Paul, I looked at it for just awhile and I did feel a bit dizzy

Leighton, was that at the market or err a blacksmith came by the farm to shoe the horses? I hope the latter didn't make me seem like such a silly city boy

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.



I'm a gear head too Tom...

Doubtless you've heard the Indian saying... the first twenty years we're a student, the next twenty years we're a householder, the next twenty years we're a "gardener of the one" and the next twenty years we're a "teacher of the one." It seems you're right on track, raising a family in rather remarkable circumstances. The teacher I visited in India 18 years ago had been an engineer, another teacher whom I respect was president of the Bank of India before they devoted themselves to spiritual practice.

Photography brings us together, but we each have our own unique journey to follow. We do well when we embrace it...

Wonderful work you're sharing with us Leighton. You're aware, of course, that you COULD have used a longer lens for that blacksmithing shot and avoided the danger... Love how you converted the image as well as the nice tight composition. You're knocking it out of the park my friend.

Shot a couple of days ago in downtown San Anselmo with the 20 f/3.5 U.D. AI'd. Perhaps it is because I'm approaching my 72nd birthday that I look at older folks win infirmities and pause to wonder about what life has in store for me. When I was younger thoughts like that never crossed my mind. But in line with the conversation Tom and I have been having of late, it is well to remember what the Buddha taught... we will all die and we don't know when...


This woman still finds pleasure in window shopping...

Maybe she's going to apply for a job at the Booksmith?

Quite like it. She is small in the frame, that leads me down a whole different path of thought.

Also I am taken by your tiny sidewalks. Not sure why ours are so large in comparison.

My wife, in a furious stage whisper
Take this shot now!
The laughed till bowled over after the shutter tripped
She has a weird sense of humour

Wonderful Chin, very nice light... and a delight that you have a partner in your adventures with a camera. She has a good eye for possibilities as well, which is helpful. My partner is a advanced novice at oil painting so we can share and appreciate aesthetic possibilities with one another. She also has great patience when I'm shooting. Of course, I don't use a tripod so grabbing a shot doesn't take a great deal of time.

No, you're not a "silly city boy". It was actually a demonstration at the county fair.

Thank you Curtis. I like your window shopper, looks like you're going after the look that our friend Georg so often displays here.

Very nice Georg. I like how the fisheye creates that "in your face" perspective.
