    Wow. Been a while since I was in Seattle. Didn't know there was one of these. Nice shot though.

    I don't "take pictures like this" as well. Nevertheless I fully agree with you in estimating Steve's and Rayyan's pictures of the homeless, the poor, the disabled - resp. the "less fortunate" in general.

    The key to credibility of a photographer for me is due to the extent and the manner he is able to honestly identify with their subject and adopt their perspective(s) (be it just for the moment of the capture and "through" the picture - and be it in a more empathetic way or by a more intellectual analytic view). IOW: Is he able to achieve an internal perspective or will he remain in an outsider's view. The latter mostly very close to voyeurism ...

    For me it boils down to the simple analogy: Am I able to really speak to that subject or do I plainly talk "about" a person, a personal fate; in this case with my pictures? Probably very close to your statement of Steve's and Rayyan's ability to create a "bond".

    For me, it's as well a question of "themes" and "opportunities". If the content of a photograph only depends on opportunity and not on themes, I'm really involved in, "this makes me feel 'bad"" as well, to quote your words.

    BTW: I think, it's a great capture. And you indicated, why ...
    Hermann: Thanks! Very good response to what i wrote...and an excellent clarification and elaboration based on your thoughts.

    Cheers, Matt

    Lloyd: Thanks! Not a real system, like SLC. This tram runs from Westlake Center to Fred Hutch through Paul Allen's South Lake Union neighborhood. Although, you now can take Light Rail from downtown to the Airport!

The interaction between the four people fits your description; their scale in relationship to the composition, could even be "seed-like" (stretch, I know, but if they filled the frame, would you have given it the same name?) Nice pp.

    I sold my 28mm AFD to Glazer's about two months ago. It was sitting there, unsold, until last week. I'd hoped to get it back.

    Steve, guess all of us need an enforcer it seems! Lovely vintage tonality.
    The ' vicarious ' life leading, russian/french speaking coffee drinker is the
    main attraction once again, for me. Well done!

    I think you guys got it in reverse. The hat guy is flannel shirt guy's butler.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Lots of wonderful images here....I have alot of catching up to do! As one of my friends once said....."I hate it when work gets in the way of life."

    I did manage to fire off a few more shots with the D2X and 55mm Micro Nikkor over the past couple weeks. Here's one of them.



    My Nikon 28mm f2.8 AIS lens is now mounted up and I'm hoping to get a few shots to contribute to ryc/JT's thread this weekend.

    Unfortunately, I don't have a Nikkor 105 f1.8 AIS lens. I may need to rectify that situation real soon! :-)

    Love this image, Tim. Back in the late 60s, I hitch-hiked across the US and back, and mostly stayed off the freeways, opting for roads like these. Very reminiscent. Beautiful processing too.

    I did manage to fire off a few more shots with the D2X and 55mm Micro Nikkor over the past couple weeks. Here's one of them.



    My Nikon 28mm f2.8 AIS lens is now mounted up and I'm hoping to get a few shots to contribute to ryc/JT's thread this weekend.

    Unfortunately, I don't have a Nikkor 105 f1.8 AIS lens. I may need to rectify that situation real soon! :-)

    Very nice Gary. Great detail shot.

    Love this image, Tim. Back in the late 60s, I hitch-hiked across the US and back, and mostly stayed off the freeways, opting for roads like these. Very reminiscent. Beautiful processing too.
    Thanks and thanks!

    I remember when hitch-hiking was pretty normal, cool even. Made some pretty inexpensive trips in those days. Maybe travel time wasn't that important. Now? I don't see a lot of HHers, and the ones I do see, I feel like I ought to warn them of something.

    Yes, I know what you mean, I feel the same way. Wasn't really always safe even back then... I had a couple of close calls, but I thinks it's changed considerably.

    Rayyan: Admirable directness resulting from that telling gaze and the eye contact are so powerful, i.e. this one really is a favorite for me.
    Best regards - Hermann

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Tim: Kevin, the Blades of Green (all the set really, but i find that one especially impressive in its simplicity) and On the Road Again are great photos. Different styles, same mastery.
    The road shot is different from your usual production, but absolutely excellent (quite an interesting angle btw). Makes me missing all the road trips from the past. Love it.


    Rayyan: another voice for the "partitioned composition". What a great shot!
    The portraits are indeed, as always, sooo good. Tales of the Soul, they are.



    Steve: i like the atmosphere and imposing framing of "Seeds of Love", but what truly stands out is Snoopy and Mom. Full of love and tenderness, and it tells the story. Can't beat that.
    Oh btw, "The Enforcer,Protector of The Worlds Most Interesting Man..." is such a good line (and photo, neddless to say)


    Gary: clean comp and great detail. Superb lens, this kit is certainly a winner in your hands.

    re: Fun with Nikon Images

    Matt: interesting take, and exchange with Hermann, on the subject of "pictures like this". I probably missed a few points, disagree with some. But let's not over intellectualize. Not my style, y'know.

    Needed to quote this...
    For some reason I'm conjuring up a scene with a NoctiPot and AISKettle. One says "black". The other one throws stones. At glass, of course. No house though. But an architect.






    "one body, one lens", eh?
