HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYBODY!

Dec 31

In Rambling at 3:25pm

At the risk of repeating myself….

On New Year’s Eve day, late in the afternoon, quite a number of years ago, I stopped for gas. An elderly gentleman was tending the pumps, and we struck up a conversation. Innocuously, I alluded to the fact that I had “made it through another year.” He snorted and looked at his watch. “Few hours left. Don’t get cocky!”

To all, many thanks for reading the blog, and stop by on Monday. I’ll be confessing my photographic sins from 2009. More tk….

Właśnie skończyłem czytac “Uchwycic moment” i biorę się teraz drugą Pana książkę. Podziwiam zdjęcia i życzę Szczęśliwego Nowego Roku 2010! Książki też są cool! ;-)

Happy New Year Joe,
Your style and artistry is an inspiration. As I looked at your 1979 calendar I remembered my daughter, born in 1979. As a photographers daughter she has been subject to the lens for her entire life and takes it in stride. She’s thirty now and I just stuck her in front of the lens to model for a project I was shooting for FJ Westcott. All the best in this coming year.

Thanks for freeing me from the studio, Joe! My background is studio photography. Now with a DSLR in hand and your location lighting techniques, I can control (modify) the light nearly anywhere with a minimum of gear. All the best in 2010. I hope our paths cross again this year!
