Jay is a true modern-day master. Always a pleasure to listen to his wisdom.

And, I might add, a real gentleman.
Jay and I have a somewhat similar attraction to the abstract. The one presented here is of particular interest. Abstractions sometimes may appear easier to achieve than they actually are; at least as well composed as this one of Jay's. Of course, using an 8x10 camera does not make the task any easier; I can attest to that!
When I first glanced at this photograph, I thought, "move in" and get closer; that is what I would have done. Then, I came back a number of times and viewed what Jay had done. He nailed it! It can not be enhanced by cropping; the dark right side and that anchor in the upper left corner bring it all together, aided by that beautiful central focus, devoid of scale. It is marvelous, and well done!

Pictures made "going from someplace to someplace else." I do that.

I got 'this is a stick' because of what you said it represented on your site and to remind myself to use the things I already have as my disposal. All of the tattoos make me ridiculously happy but I'm especially pleased with the stick. Read more http://rushessay.com/essay_writing.php
