What's the story, James? Aren't these from before your birth, LOL!

Well, let's see......EXIF----- it was taken with a 5DII in 2012 at 1/160th sec! So was this at some expo or from the theater or TV screen?

James,

I never realized this vintage models could still work with modern broadcast! Do folk really still have such TV sets. This seems like a "collectable". Frankly I was totally into about 1960!

Once again the Farmers' Market in Beverly Hills, a social place for men too to catch up and explain one's plans and argue for what consumes them most!

























Asher Kelman: Men Catching up!"

Beverly Hills Farmers' Markety July 5th 2015

Sony A7R with Zeiss Contax MM,
28mm 2.0 "Anniversary" Lens


I am fascinated with such encounters all over the market! This one was surprisingly deep and concentrated and lasted over five and a half minutes!

Perhaps markets are also therapeutic, LOL!

Sure it does! Since there is only one channel there is no need to change it. I think its called back to the future classics but you still have to put up with commercials

I never thought of that possibility. I think they are just old friends and neither of them is connected to that booth! I'll look out for that place next time!

Hi Asher

No they always stop and pick up the coins and put them back in the cup. Sometimes because of guilt they would make a small donation. I have other similar scenes but always the same setup and outcome. They had no idea what was happening to them. Strange eh?


Best, regards

James

Great shot. Didn't notice it earlier.

Interesting the misspelling of CRÊPES (as CRÉPES) on the sign! An acute error.

Best regards,

Doug

I appreciate so much these pictures as I had the extraordinary opportunity to witness these same waves just days ago with you in Lisbon!

I find the second set especially interesting as it does not have the sense of complexity of construction i hereunto in the first set, where there are more components. This last set work well. Now m,right a triptych be even stronger? I don't know. what I do admit, however, is that I was, at the time, more focussed on trying to frame moving people and, at those moments, missed missed the richness at my feet that you saw.

So much of photography is an openness to "seeing". but there's much more. The presentation must consider what is placed next to each picture as the order creates that atmosphere and context of the work.

I am enjoying this so much!

Asher

Thanks for dropping by and catching my picture. I enjoy that Elliott Erwitt can inspire us to create more than we would have done without him!

Yes the trpich works!

I am enjoying your brave ventures, Antonio! This last one has much promise as the colors are spectacular and one can feel the angry energy of the waters thrashing the rocks!

I have been thinking that I could make a series of images under the title/subject "Sea" looking forward OPF Gallery 2016...

Antonio,

These pictures have a simple but rich color palette going for it.

I'd think the water must be remarkably changing or each picture reveals either progressively less or progressively more.

Have you done any more experimentation with this triptych idea. Do you think it might be better to have the narrow from in the center or perhaps have a wildly wide first image, a regular image at the center and your narrow one at the right. If the geometry is neither equal but not dramatically asymmetrical it might not work as well.

Looking forward to a surprise. It should really be a progression in a sequence to fit in with the O.P.

Asher
