I was walking around Boston one day and came upon this scene that reminded me of the work of André Kertéz, one of my favorite photographers. I think we can learn a lot by occasionally trying to emulate another’s style, as long as we don’t make a habit of the practice!

Olympus OMD EM1 with Zuiko 9-18mm zoom, a lens that I believe is underrated.

boston snow (1 of 1)

Last year around this time I was at a Kelby seminar in Boston. It snowed lightly all day and interesting images were all around. I had my Sony Nex 7 with me and a couple of Leica lenses with me. This image was made with the Leica 90mm Tele Elmar.

I met John online through WordPress. We followed one another, “liking” and commenting on each other’s work until I felt that I knew him as a friend even though we had never met in person. We fixed that this past Summer when I drove up to Boston. When we met it was as though we had known each other for years. I had a great time being shown around Boston, talking photography, and in general just getting acquainted.

just Imagine

Black And White Photography, Photography


“Just imagine living in a world without mirrors. You’d dream about your face and imagine it as an outer reflection of what is inside you. And then, when you reached forty, someone put a mirror before you for the first time in your life. Imagine your fright! You’d see the face of a stranger. And you’d know quite clearly what you are unable to grasp: your face is not you.”

~ Milan Kundera
