    How do you do it Leo?

    Get Leica quality results from a point and shoot camera plus minimum post processing/

    You have developed that special.....photographer's/artist's .....eye which allows you to ....SEE ....the world around you, then share it.

    Thank You!

    Whenever I see photographs of the people of Moscow, I see just how like we Brits they appear....we must share a very similar gene pool?

  • MY CAP IS BETTER'N YOURN ERN.

    Morning John....

    They will be like me......amongst the last two years of National Servicemen......We who were kidnapped by HM Forces .....we who had our hair shorn against our wills.....we who were ordered about from dawn until dusk, for a pittance and barrack damages....we STILL shine our shoes because we still take pride in our appearance and demeanour.....the exception is, that I have rebelled against forced hair cuts since....my ex RSM would have a fit if he saw me now.

    Strange thing is.....the hated National Service haircut is thought to be a fashion statement now.....stupid lads!

    I claim, that my free bus pass is in payment for my two year abduction.

    Did me good though......I still shave every day, and polish my shoes.

  • Not even death can do us part

    Morning Leo.....I thought it was yours as soon as I saw the thumbnail version.....

    A classic......as always.......inspirational!

    So many new photographers could learn from your examples.

    Shallow depth of field, combined with the expression of the subject makes for a very pleasing study.

    You certainly know how to handle that camera of yours Leo.

    I like this Leo......it forces your eyes to play with the negative spaces.....beautiful tones too.

    You have done it again Leo....

    Perfect tones, textures, detail, focus, mono processing and composition....you are setting a high standard in your field......

    A lesson in how to MAKE rather than just TAKE a photograph.

    .inspirational!

    I like this one too....

    A set like this would look great all together in one exhibition.

  • Little buddies

    As much as I like this shot.....I do know that to many dogs a face being that close to theirs can seem to be a real threat......my younger brother had his face badly bitten by a neighbours dog, many years ago now, but I have never forgotten the horror of it.

  • it sucks

    Morning Leo,

    You certainly have a way of.......MAKING.......a photograph, and not just .....taking.....one.

    Who would have thought that a tool from a vacuum cleaner would initiate positive comments?

    For me, you succeed as a result of you well chosen viewpoint and your excellent mono processing.

  • DECOMMISSIONED TRAINS

    Hi, Dimalexa,

    So sorry to learn of the devastating loss of all your photographic gear and computer, that must be very hard to bear.

    But......as someone else has already written.......They HAVE NOT stolen your obvious talent and enthusiasm.....I am sure, that after the initial shock has worn off, you will bounce back with whatever equipment comes to hand. After this, you will acquire, replacements...... I am sure, that there are many EPZ members like myself with the odd spare camera that could be sent to you.

    But you might be inundated, with far more than you can cope with......perhaps better to wait to see if a local member close to you can help.....or.....your insurance replaces items.

    Should you really be stuck.....`I have a Panasonic GF1 with a vintage lens attached......this would get you over the bad patch.

    Just PM me if it will help.

  • the art of posing

    Well done Leo......I think that it was Cartier Bresson who said something like .........

    " Find a photograph then allow your subjects to walk into it "

    I guess that with all the advertising hoardings around now, the open air exhibition looked no different in their eyes?

    Thank you for all you kind comments and the Award folks.

    I have recently been influenced by the work of Photography Pioneer and Maverick....ARTHUR STIEGLITZ........look him up.

  • abstract world 78

    I like this....

    I often take shots very similar but rarely do anything further with them....perhaps I should?

    We sometimes walk right past real potential!

    This pic proves that we must all become more observant.

    We rarely see lads of that age, roaming free, like we used to today......it is amazing too, that there isn't a mobile phone in sight.....

    A great study Leo.
