“When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.”
“A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.”
“It is my intention to present - through the medium of photography - intuitive observations of the natural world which may have meaning to the spectators.”
“No man has the right to dictate what other men should perceive, create or produce, but all should be encouraged to reveal themselves, their perceptions and emotions, and to build confidence in the creative spirit.”
“In wisdom gathered over time I have found that every experience is a form of exploration.”
“A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.”

very impressive sight. Your choice of black and white is rightly justified, it adds so much drama to the picture. Good point of view too.

A stark and forceful composition of astounding quality. Title totally justified.The dark tones highlight the mood of sorrow. Left me speechless!

Bon choix du noir et blanc pour mettre en valeur ce bâteau qui a bien gagné sa retraite.
Merci pour le partage et bonne soirée.

This is a different and slightly sad photo, very well converted to b&w. It makes me think of the carcass of an animal, left to die in the desert. The curve of the beach behind the wreck, and the contrast between the light left side and the dark right side make the composition as such very attractive, in spite of the sad sight.

I hope this old carcass abandoned, has rendered many services during better days. The B & W makes this show moving. Excellent quality. Bravo.

A well composed picture along the S-line of the shore. The broken boat is indeed representing someone's lost dreams. Now it is an interesting object in the picture, perfectly captured in black&white that enhances the feeling of sadness.
