Picture of the Moment - De File
Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
Picture of the Moment
I've had some nice compliments on my photographs lately, as well as a request to show more of them. I'll try to do that. In the meantime, though, let me introduce you to my "Picture of the Moment" album -- once again on the sidebar to the right of my entries -- where I store all the pictures I've taken myself and then presented here on De File (as well as a few others, I should add). I don't blow my own bassoon very often, but I have to admit to feeling a surge of pride as I scrolled down through the photographs -- they're now arranged with the most recent at the top of the page, BTW -- a few minutes ago. There's a nice balance between family shots and the abstract compositions I am drawn to in my more reflective moments.

The guy that wrote the article about photography I just read must have seen your collection of POMs. He described your techniques -- candid shots (where you're not telling the subject you're taking their picture) and using alternative views (like the turtle's eye view) and varying focus. He also suggested combining posed/traditional shots with shots depicting inanimate objects and candid shots for a good, lively, body of work.

I really enjoyed looking at them (especially the new interiors on the Metro trains -- now they have red seats? Man, they were stuck in the 70s color scheme for so long!) -- thank you for posting the link.

What do you know? That's gratifying to hear. I guess I do try those things pretty regularly.

acknowledging, affectionately

I've been meaning to say I like this page lots.
Though I want captions, I like it without them. For a variety of reasons I don't wanna type out.

Re: acknowledging, affectionately

Thank you so much. I wasn't thinking about LJ when I wrote that, really, but it makes me enormously happy to have my photographs acknowledged. I'm deeply invested in them individually, but also as an ensemble. The captions usually come in the title of the LJ entries in which the photos appear, for what it's worth. But I like to have the page itself spare of anything other than images.
