Despite my ignorance, I like the geometries of this composition. The triangulation between the leaf, the shadow, and the camera lens takes me along a deep space route to a shadowy nebula. Even the cracks in the pool light up like runway lights pointing the way.

I find that shooting pictures in a crowd is difficult to impossible. One of the problems with a small Kodak digital is that crowds are unruly and they love to demolish compositions before trigger fingers can do their job. And another problem is the lack of focal length that could clear the scene.

Computers and digitalization offer us countless variations of visual scenes. Variation is the key word here. Kitty Kat was originally launched as a study into the variations offered by duplication. The computational ease of cutting, folding, duplicating and transparency offer formal design possibilities that can stimulate imaginations these days.
Working with a 2mb digital camera never slowed me down in the early days. The little Kodak always brought home something to work with. The possibility for post production work in Photoshop remains nearly limitless. This Bahamian Church offered an interesting compositional problem and solution. Rub-a-Dub in Photoshop: Voila! The church stands out from its background.
Ed's Closet is pretty straight, early digital photography with an addendum of blue background and words. All easily available in Photoshop. I post this image to remind myself of the magical ingredient in all documentary photography: subject appeal. After viewing any photograph I like to ask myself what it showed me and where it took my thoughts and emotions.

This is my 100th blog posting. Google counts the postings and I believe them.
I want to thank all you readers, fictitious or not, for taking this journey with me. I may be moving my blog to a new site soon: the crassly commercial gerryzeckphotos.com web site.
I am now selling my off beat photo art prints, photo art wall clocks and photo art note cards. Many of my photo art themes may be classified in the world of censorship as adult material. OK, I can live with that.
Warning: if you don’t like to look at photo renditions featuring the human body, don’t visit my web site at www.gerryzeckphotos.com. You will be offended. Go off somewhere else and have a good day.
If you do visit my new web site, you can register in the Guest Book to win a free photo art wall clock (see below) and receive an occasional photography newsletter in which I will update you on my latest photo thoughts and images. The newsletter is likely to become a photo history tour of sorts. But not all old work.
EyeEyeEye, a photo art wall clock
Web site visitors: Be sure to register in the Guest Book for the drawing. EyeEyeEye, an original Gerry Zeck photo art wall clock, will be presented to a random choice winner of the drawing to be held on September 14, 2009. The winner will be announced in the blog on site.
