Photography is not about cameras, gadgets and gizmos. Photography is about photographers. A camera didn’t make a great picture any more than a typewriter wrote a great novel.

    Beautiful wedding of a wonderful image with a profound thought. You have succeeded wonderfully at this here, a ‘genre’ I think I am most fascinated with – the perfect image to merge with a profound thought, a thought expressed with exquisite economy – and a ‘minimalist’ [in a colloquial sense] image. Wonderful.

  • sorry if it took a little time to answer you, but I needed to write something else than the usual reply…
    this is problably the best comment I ever received on any of my images, therefore truly many thanks for your great words. I too seem to be fascinated with this “genre”, but almost all the time failed to achieve the real idea I have on mind by adding too much text (so much to say and more is less in this area) or by assuming that the viewer “must” understand the message as it is obvious for me (which is the wrong path to follow evidently)… and once in a while image, text and meaning just decide to express exactly what they should…
    all the failures are then worth the effort !
    I am so glad I could share it with you…
    my best, francis.
