“Simply look with perceptive eyes at the world about you, and trust to your own reactions and convictions. Ask yourself: "Does this subject move me to feel, think and dream? Can I visualize a print - my own personal statement of what I feel and want to convey - from the subject before me?”
Photography is more than a medium for factual communication of ideas. It is a creative art.
When words become unclear, I shall focus with photographs. When images become inadequate, I shall be content with silence.
A great photograph is one that fully expresses what one feels, in the deepest sense, about what is being photographed.
A true photograph need not be explained, nor can it be contained in words.
I tried to keep both arts alive, but the camera won. I found that while the camera does not express the soul, perhaps a photograph can!
It is my intention to present - through the medium of photography - intuitive observations of the natural world which may have meaning to the spectators.
There are always two people in every picture: the photographer and the viewer.
Some photographers take reality... and impose the domination of their own thought and spirit. Others come before reality more tenderly and a photograph to them is an instrument of love and revelation.

ho letto con grande interesse le citazioni di Ansel Adams e trovo che hai fatto bene a ricordarle a tutti noi di TE.
Belle sensazioni dal tuo scatto realizzato con la consueta attenzione e bravura.

J'aime bien les arbres tous croches qui ont eu la vie dure. C'est le genre d'arbres que je mets dans mes tableaux de ce temps-ci. Une photo bien composée, intéressantes et belles silhouettes contre le ciel bleu.
Toutes mes amitiés,

This is a unique and it really is miraculous and beautiful and all those intricate branches filling the frame superbly. Well thought out shot and the best for the contrast and exposure is fine and contrasting aspect ratios, a scene but becomes an artwork. I think the treartment in B&W is much better without color to distract and the view offers a better balanced image from this viewpoint. Great effort and ideas, thks to the additonal image and fine written notes. TFS
