Art from Found Photographs Sadly, works get forgotten. A good eye can bring new life if one has humor, knowledge and vision. The used pictures must be either yours, from the public domain or legal rights of usage having been obtained. Be prepared to explain image sources without being defensive or mad at the moderator. This does not diminish your art, just helps with historical provenance.

Default Blurred vision

Since we last met the world has changed.
On a lesser note, the US has a new Master of Ceremonies for the next circus, GB has decided they hate the French and Germans even more than they could imagine and religion continues to twist the minds of gullible people.
On a more significant note, I have lost all clarity of thought and now see the world as a strange and contorted prognostication and I await my fate.
So that I am prepared, all images of the past have been eradicated. The past can no longer appear so clearly as in a photograph. It must be as blurred as the present or as unseen as the future.

The very idea that my present is beautiful or to be liked is abhorrent to me. The camera records what I see; the photograph reflects not a Decisive Moment but a lapse of time I do not see. In this, I can continue to be surprised by what I don't see clearly. Then the image can become anything I want. There are no mistakes, no indecisiveness, nothing to like or dislike: they are what they are.

It just is.
You can make of it what you will. I'm content with it being as it is, an incoherent jumble of probabilities taken to the nth degree.
The world and its contents do not need to be seen as beautiful. I'm content just seeing them, even if it is in faded light and fraudulent focus.
I'm of the opinion that we might not be satisfied with ugliness, disarray and the uncomfortable feeling of feeling a bit uncomfortable.
Beauty grabs us like a throttling vine and squeezes reality from our vision, not once but twice: first, in our search for it and second in our denial of the richness of what is not.

In our search for beauty, we are distracted from the prize.
Only when we have no knowledge of the concept is there a reward, an envy, a connection with the truth.
Beauty is not the truth. Beauty is less than reality.
Only the harshness of living, the denial of getting, the distance between us and what we want will give us a true knowledge of how we are.

That, Tom, depends!

In this case, looking at the entire picture I see beauty in the involvement of the child. But it exists to in the sensual photograph To her right.

What concept? Of the design/build/content of the camera's view? Or else, perhaps what was in the mind that formed the "intent" of the photographer. I would proffer that there is no "truth", just reactive feelings and subjective interpretations, some of which others share and so "resonate" and seem to coincide with some "truth" of the matter.

Since beauty, (although often culturally influenced), is "in the eye of the beholder", it is defined the moment that "appreciation", ( of "beauty"), is felt. So in that instance it is the truth.

Notwithstanding that, beauty, although partly culturally ordained, is unlike the concept of "gram" or "cm" and is only "somewhat" universally standardized or appreciated.

I think you might mean, "who we are", although the original "how we are" could be an entertaining philosophical exercise! In either case, reaction to a photograph, always, includes who we are!

However, alleged "harshness of living" is not, always, in play! Here, below, for example, there is ample and obvious beauty. That is not only "a truth" but also "the truth" of this photograph.

These are superb images of Sienna! You have gotten some great views and even managed to catch some protrusions of humanity!

Well crafted and memorable too.

Well Tom,

This took me to a different place......Venice! Typically the more economical hotels my wife books are a mile from the drop of by the Water taxi from the Airport. This is often my path, schlepping my bloody case and hoping the cheap wheels don't snap off!



As to the next one, folk might think I am gay for my affinity to woman's fashions and my tendency to scan through the windows of a hair salon to see the attention and the constant banter the women get!

........and that beauty poster, without shame, I admit I love it! I take it in and approach it as if it was a tree full of spring blossom!



_DSF3772 by Tom Dinning, on Flickr

Now look at that picture again and ask what on earth is that dirty black wall stain doing for the picture? I tell you what. I think it is needed to counter the seemingly "bland" hair styling element on the left with the powerful bright sensual poster in the middle and it does that with aplomb.

Well crafted and bringing some of the mixture of bland and glitter that makes up life we trade through!

Asher

Actually, Robert, my eyes are shot. I shoot on 'guess' mode. As far as the camera is concerned I feel as though I have come the full circle. As the martial artist does, I have returned to the white belt.
I own the simplest of cameras, use the simplest of settings and shoot with the simplest of instincts.

Each day I cleanse my mind of what I know and work with what little instincts I have. I seek no understanding or praise. Perhaps I have a destructive approach. Perhaps.

I am not referring to your physical eye.

I never mentioned camera.

If you didn't desire recognition or acknowledgement of your photographs, you would be keeping them to yourself or not taking pictures at all.

I could care less about your use of exaggerated self deprication in an attempt to force those viewing your posts, into accepting the illusion of yourself that you want us to have. That is why I will stick to talking about your photographs - which I happen to find to be quite competent and enjoyable to look at.

We pay a price for everything we get.

In some cases it is exacted on the "wrapper" - for some tasty and nourishing breakfast cereal, perhaps the manufacturer's exaggerated claims on the box, or the list, in a minuscule font, of the 307 ingredients in it.

Best regards,

Doug

Really!


Robert,

Yes it's just the actual pictures that gives Tom his placemat at the table and he's welcome!

But outback guys have a persona and this is his. The hard thing is that when Tom is downright hostile, dismissive and rude he is either having fun or thinking he is bringing reality to haughty, self-impressed folk. I tolerate this rusty patina as underneath there is sensitivity and humanity attested by the compositions shown here. Tom can wear whatever cloak he chooses, I like you appreciate his personal window to the planet.

The prickly, self-effacing banter, is to me just bark that peels from a tree, sort of raw and earthy but not Shakespeare or the Beatles!

If he talked as he does here in an Aukland, NZ bar, his jaw would get busted! In Darwin however, this banter means he likes us!

Asher

Here we go again. Still, its a conversation and it is raining and I am consumed with boredom.

I know you weren't referring to my physical eye, Robert. My sarcasm was a response to your metaphor; a legitimate way of responding in a conversation, I believe. We are not all morons in Australia, you know.

I could care less about your use of exaggerated self deprication in an attempt to force those viewing your posts, into accepting the illusion of yourself that you want us to have. That is why I will stick to talking about your photographs - which I happen to find to be quite competent and enjoyable to look at.

I, in turn, couldn't care less (or perhaps I could care less) about you not caring less, Robert. Your levels of caring are neither my concern or source of provocation.
My level of self-deprecation (note the spelling and use of hyphen) has its own motivations, none of which are to 'force'anyone to do anything. I'm of the thinking that intelligent humans can resist such manipulation.
As for the illusion; is that what we are about? Each image is just that; an illusion of the reality we achieve from our own perspective.

Your comment was not about my photographs at all; the comment was about YOU. You told me you like the photographs. Who is that about? Certainly not about my images. And when you referred to your judgements on how you believe I use photographic tools (and I might assume a camera is involved there) you are once again talking about yourself, not the images.

None of this is of any disliking to me, but none of that is why I take photographs, nor is any of what you say have anything to do with why I post here.
In addition, nothing I say is meant to provocate discernment, only conversation.

Thank you for yours.

By the way, I equally enjoy looking at your photos. Not for their aethetic appeal or story telling qualities but for their commonality and blandness.

Cheers
Tom

I very much like the concept of the first posted set and the individual images with the exception of the rose shot which doesn't seem to fit. These images could be printed huge and shown in a gallery. There are too many additional images following to comment on.

Hi Pete.
We haven't met. Nice to meet you.

In response you your post:

I don't do 'series' or expect any one image to connect to another. That will only be your expectation. These are rather random shots from a 'series' of some thousands I took over a 2 month holiday in Italy with Christine.

Each shot is a personal statement of who I am and what I see. They require no appraisal, criticism or alteration. They are what they are.

The only 'gallery' they get displayed in is in my own house. You are welcome to visit but the conversation will not be about photographs. Everyone who visits knows they can only comment on the photos on the wall if they also comment on my carpet and the color of my kitchen.

Feel free to comment on anything as long as you don't tell me you like it. I don't care if you do. It's not why I photograph. To me, that's akin to a woman dressing to be raped.

See how easy I am to get on with.

Cheers
Tom

Tom, I haven't even visited you yet but I imagine I'll love your carpet, your kids and your wife. The colour of the kitchen is daft.

Some bloody good pics here.
Forgive me but it's what I do. Give praise and stuff.
Sometimes your images are so good, I just skip past them. The one Asher just pointed out is ridiculously awesome. I knew that when I first saw it but haven't been very talkative lately so I kept shtumm.

Getting back to some of the other stuff that's been talked about in this thread.
I do think this is an important forum. It's important for the few of us who use it regularly.
It's a great place to view photos because there is almost no junk posting. Virtually everything is worthwhile in some degree and almost always technically proficient at the very least.
It's a place where intelligence tends to predominate (we use big words and everything).
I post here to get the odd reaction. An affirmation (of any kind) is earned here not given away like a hundred instagram likes and opinions are actually considered and mostly useful.

Tom,

It doesn't matter what you assert as your intention and how much you do not look for or seek comment, only, as far as I am concerned, how your work impacts others here


Same with the woman who claims she is not
inviting attention when she dresses provocatively
and saunters by a line of busy food trucks.


Take this picture.




_DSF3074 by Tom Dinning, on Flickr



It is not a snap, but a studiously composed, disciplined and critically defined composition. It lacks obvious "beauty". There are no human feelings embedded here. Worse it defiantly cuts major elements!

Your unlikely window excludes and isolates, creating a dynamic opposition. All from what is so mundane: a bicycle on the left and a car on the right outside a bland store with harsh angular light.

You cannot, then, realistically ask for the picture not to be "liked", reacted to, torn apart or hoped to be experienced in any of a myriad of ways.


This is no different from one wanting to engage,
follow, smile, photograph or even touch or caress
that woman, as she creates a wave of admiration
and movement, as she works her way through the
crowd with a thin silk fabric allowing her beauty
to radiate and astonish everyone in her path.


You are one annoying and arrogant fellow! However, beneath that baggage, I do like you but I pay a price and it's painful.

At least in the past week, you have generated not a single note to me as folk driven to tears walk away from this forum. For that I am grateful. At last folk are separating your technically and emotionally proficient photography from your socially haughty claimed detachment and disdain!

Asher

Tom

So that personal observation on your photograph, is in my way of seeing things exactly the same as me or others making statements such as "I enjoy these images".

Your demeaner may prefer the more verbose response (that appears to be all that you will accept). However I will allow you to deem it a privilege to have someone at my photographic level of expertise at creating images with such a "commonality and blandness" - to take precious time from my busy daily activities - to look at your photos, and find some value amidst the thousands of pics that I am inundated with, on my Instagram and Facebook feeds as well as the dozen photo forums I visit each day - - - and at least write a short note of appreciation.

All the best Tom. You are definitely the Energizer Bunny. LOL
