~ Beyond The Shelter ~

By Lovebe_eyes
~ Beyond The Shelter ~ To Beer ~ !

I was going to segway off and introduce you to other stuff I've been up to with the camera but have decided to share this from August last year..

I've just edited this and even though I'm getting better at knowing what works within my artistic vision very much helped by of having quite a few printed large; I'm never completely sure until I talk with my printer man as I edit on a tablet. Though I'm pretty okay with that given how I love and I'm inspired by Saul Leiter's sublime 1950 's , 60's Colour New York photographs... Relating very much to the way he celebrated not being in control of colour renditions and the process..

I can imagine this printed large. The colour has a raw energy, you thought of Leitner, I thought of the Mark Cohen display in the V&A Photography Gallery.

The colours have a brash, NYC feel to them.

Aaah thank you... Perhaps a print will happen. Mark Cohen is new to me so I shall look at his work. I've had a quick peep.!

It's true, Leiter's colours were often muted and of course a different time, place and film camera,plus sometimes expired film. I do adore the eye he had for painterly abstraction and his approach and ethos. He was such a sweet heart... I love the film made a year or so before he passed.. In No Great Hurry.

This is raw, as real life is. Not all polished and perfect. Urban grit at its best.
More polluted, grimy city than rural Devon...

Absolutely true.. Not typically rural Devon There's been talk that this bus stop will be replaced in a re development of the seafront area. Maybe on hold though.

I'm glad I've photographed this beautifully decaying bus stop every which way for well over a year now.
