Greetings; fellow travelers, dreamers, & others,
During summer humidity I spent many days/daze here at my Outerboro apartment in my boxers in front of the fan involved in putting together a website exclusively featuring my travel photos. It has made for a good vacation of itself, culling through thousands of images from discs and memory cards. It is an indefinite project, perhaps to continue until the dirtnap — improbably ever to be completed...
World travel is existentially enriching to an extent that is not adequately relayed in words — and I subscribe to the adage that "one picture is worth a thousand words".
In 2006 I took my first trip to India. This coincided in time when I finally broke down and bought my first computer, having been dragged kicking & screaming by friends with my best interest at heart to the Apple store.
Before the trip, a friend who is a professional photographer gave me one of her digital point-and-shoot cameras to have for photos during the India tour. — I had not been familiar with photography in a friendly way. It was often required in my work as a visual fine artist to shoot my paintings for slides to submit to galleries or for grant applications. I found this to be an annoying strain, setting up lights and tripods and so forth -messing around with the film, using the gray card, etc... It was a royal aggravation followed by the expense of development and occasions when everything would have to be shot all over again. I did it only because I had to. In short, I did not like engaging in any aspect of photography. —Well. With this digital point-and-shooter there was no muss, no fuss. In subsequent years I have maintained the practice of pointing and shooting with an inexpensive Canon powershot model set on auto, taking way too many pictures. Many are deleted but some are keepers. And even if the image doesn’t suit, sometimes it can be adjusted with standard photo hardware that comes with the computer. I crop or make lighting adjustments as needed without resorting to Photoshop.
The images are not necessarily polished and generally not of high resolution, but they are adequate for conveyance in this website format/venue, although not likely for printing in any large extent. My general aim is to capture moments as they appear during travels. The website is provided for people who simply like to look at pictures… Reality is ephemeral. I regard its passing.
