    Have enjoyed your abstract diversion, but enjoy more your street work :o))
    For me this is “Classic Rhoufi” :o)))

  • Ah well, I have had a break from candid captures, trying to develop a more poetic eye. But I must admit the old steet calls to me. There was so little light for this I could expse the right foot resting its big toe on the tiles. I liked the grain and the odd framing. It was very much on the fly, only seconds to decide. Thanks Elle, I will not desert the street believe me.

    The thing you have here that I really aspire to is that delicious dark velvety black, and a tonal range that makes textures so exquisitely touchable. I’m finding my way into the street, and love this kind of example. Thank you.

  • Thank you Evelyn. That’s exactly why I like B+W. Colour distracts from texture and form. Without colour, if you can get the depth of blacks, the eye follows the forms that hold the emotional essence of the photograph. Touchable: exactly, both sensously and metaphorically. Well expressed, and a big thank you for seeing it.

    Ell and Evelyn expressed my thoughts better than I could, R. Nicely done!

  • Thank you Jan. I’ve been a bit of a hermit lately. I hope you are well and writing your heart out ;)

    I like the graphism here
    and the special light
    a bit mysterious
    we wonder where she is….

  • It was vey hard to take with nearly no light, no time and no tripod. But there she was, bare foot, a bag, a listless pose and something mysterious; too much for me. To enhance the mystery more she is in a convent where my mother was raised ;-) a ghost perhaps!
