I'm  reminded of another image ... where did I get this from?? But then.. 30 years ago I also took 'one eyed' portraits as seen by the image below the photograph of Tiziana..I took the bottom photograph working on 'The Hundred Echoes' at college. Most of the time, I only have a feeling that so,meshing is working for me. I prefer to trust in instinct... the analysis of the message...well that is something to write about perhaps. In the online world..words count so much. But, truly I would prefer to just let the images speak...!!

2016 Just Got Real...

April 25, 2016

I've been sitting 'on the fence' for quite some time.. not my fault. Circumstance. Bitingly bad luck - fatigue, stress...mis-diagnosis. None of that helps... slowly slowly does it. Here are a few recent images to show 'you' I'm still here and about to load a fresh memory card and shoot!!

Athens

December 06, 2015  •  Leave a Comment

The Greek capital of Athens. I haven't been there for 25 years...and the last trip was not the happiest event - girlfriend woes.. it's a long story.. suffice it to say I hadn't really had much to remember the city by except a sense of loss. So, when a colleague of mine in the Meet Up group Simple Street Photography suggest we host a trip to Athens as something different for the group I was pretty keen to go and rediscover the place.
 

It was a joyful experience! Not only were my travelling companions (some 16 people) great company but the city itself was so alive with energy..art..colour and life! So welcoming.. so easy to move through and we rarely experienced any form of camera shyness from those we chose to photograph. On just one instance - someone made a fuss at what he thought was a surreptitious portrait being taken (this was in fact an error on his part as no photograph had been made)... but otherwise on many occaisions people welcomed the attention...I took one small camera - the Fuji X100s as I knew I would spend most of my time looking out for my half of the group- and whilst I was not an "official guide" I was responsible for everyone being taken care of..looked after, not left behind. I'm pleased with these few images..taken whilst 'on duty' they express the colour I am interested in showing at present..

Heiss_Portfolio-_DSF8737DungenessTwilight. On the beach. Hand Held There is always something 'other' to do with a camera. After standing and taking tripod based long exposures of the shoreline, houses, and wreckage at Dungeness I attempted to photograph the heavy cloud and setting sun across the bay. Totally unsuccessful in bringing the 'feeling' of what i was seeing to life I just took the camera in hand and 'painted with light'. This felt much better to me- felt more akin to the wind and the sound of the sea... the motion of nature. Hand held at a few seconds it makes an image thats more abstracted, impressionistic- intuitive than all the steady tripod based one's (of this view).

The Dungeness ambience... Ok, so it's not obvious it is anywhere specific- butI know where this is- and against the many sharp and textured images I have taken in and around the area over the past 20 months, I'm happy that I can present something different- a counterpoint via Fuji X100s magic!!
