Award Shortlist   

Blue, yellow, and red.

By Aldo Panzieri
At sixty one I thought that I was settled for my career in journalism, but as cameras became smarter than the people who used them, the news photographer became an endangered species. My first editor Johnny Edwards a person I always admired told me before he died to get out when it wasn't worth staying in.

I did exactly what he said, and discovered a whole new world out there. At sixty one, I was trying to get my act together when one day I felt a pressure in my head as though some one was putting his finger in my brain. I thought I was having a stroke, but I suddenly saw all sorts of strong pictures where I had seen nothing before. Since then, I haven't stopped shooting every day even if it a concrete building with out much in the way of decoration.

This is part of the Goodwill store where I donate everything I won't need. When I got fat, I donated my skinny pants, and a decade later when I had dropped sixty pounds, I donated my fat pants and got skinny pants again. This building attracted me because of it's sparse decorations. You have to take a small detail, and compose that. I like false colors, or greatly exaggerated real colors. This detail is turned on it's side and makes an abstract picture I really like.

This close up of a small part makes for a very eye catching image, the vibrant colours pulling the eye even when viewed as a thumbnail.
And fine detail and textures captured.
Enjoyed your narrative re. fluctuating weight and clothes.......made me smile, not that easy at 3.04 am..........WinkWinkWink.

Great eye, as always Aldo. That is what makes us artists.....seeing things other people do not. That is a really interesting and heartfelt narrative also. Your journalism background doen not go away.

Good for you Aldo... the mixed patterns and colors of the wall do some extend represents the different stages of our checked or for some of us not so checked lives.
Keep shooting, many of us here will continue to do so.... the next great image is just at the turn of the corner Tongue
