A quick view of hobbo's recent activity.

  • city sculptures #12

    I'm just amazed that no-one has drawn a Grafitti nose on the face Leo......I could see that happening in. City park here......perhaps your park attendants are stricter or more observant than ours?

    A well observed study.

  • If I could share my pain with 20mg morphine sulphate

    OUCH!!

    No wonder I haven't seen you around town lately.

    I fully understand your situation on two counts......I broke both legs 10 years ago, I was off my feet for three months, then had to learn to walk again.

    Having surgery whilst conscious is a weird, but enlightening experience.....I couldn't see anything because it was my retina being scraped.....but the conversations between the surgeon, staff and even myself at times was fun.

    Rather have eye surgery, than go to the dentist.....Honestly!

    Get well soon!

    A great shot of an incredible Beastie, wonderful detail, especially those folded wings.....makes the viewer realise just how incredible, Nature is.

  • A BRAMBLE TANGLE......


    Quote:You're really a good "student", Cyril! Successful applying of Leo's technique, very good result! It's good to be influenced by someone who is many steps higher than most of us. But I'll tell you something, I think that Leo will agree: *** Be yourself !!!*** This is the best way to assimilate and make the best use of the effect someone's work is doing on you.
    Friendly,
    Dimitris



    Thank you Dimitris......I fully understand what you are saying here, but I come from the school of........

    Learning through Doing........ Just as Art students used to copy the work of the Old Masters, or the apprentice copies a master craftsman or woman.....

    This was just an excercise in using a similar camera to Leo, one very different to what I'm used to, and then to see if I could come up to his standard in post processing and presentation, and it worked,

    Also, I think that Leo and I have a similar, lateral-thinking, way of looking at the things around us, we understand and practice the same photographic/creative language, so to speak.

    Now that I have gone through this ,shared, learning process, I will go my own creative way...

    I much appreciate your observations and comments.

    Hey!

    That could be one very colourful aircraft banking to port....but, no.....it is Leo's take on a car-wash sign...... proving that he has different view on the world around him to many of us.

    Another good one......keep them coming please. 😊
