Photographer's Note

The art THINGS in photography
Actually - it was never clearly determined where the regular photography ends and the art photography begins
One ( of many) factors would be - the moment YOU have purchased a camera and YOU are going to show to the world what an art in photography is all about !
The new era in photography is just about to erupt with the full blast
And, usually - it does With the one and only, undeniable proof of artistry

The shots of the pavement THINGS !!!
Those are the THINGS I was talking about lately

Next to the shots of people's silhouettes at the end of the tunnel, portraits from India, frosted bicycles in Amsterdam, chairs and park benches covered with the blue snow

Still - despite a huge competitions - the pavements THINGS ( especially those tilted 43.6 deg.CCW), with the pieces of the tramway tracks and the manholes - are hard to beat

Nothing can further express the depth of our intellectual thinking than the shots of pavement THINGS from above, or - more bravado - shots of the pavements of the streets made from the level of the pavements of the streets

Years ago ( a lot of years ago !) - while my less advanced colleagues stayed within the level of photographing walls with some unspecified fragments of people in front of them, or - even higher level - photographing posters with the unspecified fragments of people in front of them - I skipped the level of photographing windows, door hinges, flowers and frosted bicycles in Amsterdam and moved to the very top of the art photography with the excellent shots of the empty pavements !

Something must have stayed in me over the years - because when I saw recently this excellent fragment of the tramway tracks ( abandoned long time ago - mind you !) in the streets of Toronto - I could hardly catch my breath

Here it is - the pavement with the manholes And, the steel tracks !!!

Glory hallelujah !!!

Unfortunately (like in many, many other cases) - the people's rude behavior of interrupting my photo session of tet--t皻e with the asphalt - didn't allow me to accomplish my task to full extent
I feel sorry guys, and I deeply apologize for your disappointment
Those of you who really appreciate the photography THINGS art - are deeply hurt right now seeing those shamelessly exposed fragments of human origins in the photo but, I promise you to post shortly - an artistic version of the traffic sign, or graffiti on the wall or, with the bit of luck - a photo of the stairs or some roof perhaps, or somethn'

As long as it is fully artistic to the deepest core of it

.
Now - I really understand that you folks, are running out of green makakas (judging upon rewarding my recent, posts and due, I strongly believe - to the global financial crisis, so please consider to substitute the green with the yellow ones - without any hesitation
We have to somehow solve that world turmoil and get back on the tracks all together Errr.. I mean get back on the tracks

Errr I mean

Forget it..!!!
