Photography: Profound or What?

-Ansel Adams Quotes White Brick Wall SB-

What is the quality that creates a creative reputation for a photographer? I ask this, not because I want a reputation. But, rather out of curiosity, some of those that do seem to put little effort into the subject matter. I actually, as a joke, took a photo of the white brick wall in its simplest form expecting to post it and see what resulted.

-White Brick Wall SB-

I see such images…plain this and that, which generate great ‘appreciation’ or obligation? I don’t really know. I know what I like seeing from others. But, for me, what to create is fairly random and often dynamic, unplanned. I suppose I plan to some degree by traveling to those areas that may afford me a worthy visual that moves, motivates, inspires, intrigues me.

Collage Renov Place SB

The other day I was perusing a renovation/hardware/vintage/junk store for a project. In a small section of the place was this odd array of shapes, angles, lighting, textures…not sure what exactly. I used my cell phone to quickly walk up to each small vignette and quickly snap away. Not sure why beyond an experiment and the end result provides what? My inquisitive mind, wakeful eye? A building block perhaps in seeing more. Hmm?

Momentary Chest Pains………….

hair grizzly

I guess I should explain for the non-fly tier/fisher: A few years ago the hackle industry was overwhelmed with the then fashionable style of long cock feathers blended in with the hair. Less worthy feathers were  used for earrings too. The trend passed and the feathers again became a bit more plentiful in fly shops for tiers. In looking at this above image, I believe the look is actual feathers, but rather the hair colored into a grizzly pattern. I do hope so…..


Fingernails & Hen Hackle Tips

The past few years have shown the styling craze of feather earrings, prime hackle for hair extensions and now, I am told, hen hackle tips are becoming quite the rage for fingernail appliques beneath an acrylic overlay…a form of nail art. What, if any, the impact will be on fly shops, once again, remains to be seen.

Even tonight, I was asked if I could part with any blue dun hen hackle!
