no-nonsense

Behold, my friends, the spring is come; the earth has gladly received the embraces of the sun, and we shall soon see the results of their love!
Sitting Bull

 

 

It would appears I’m heading in the direction of a crow-a-day, which wasn’t my intention. I got a semi-lecture to how un cool crows are and how they eat others baby birds. Geez, have you ever read about how the eagle operates. C’est la vie.


Not sure if anybody noticed but I caught what looks like a Wes Freed crow that was flying over Belly Timber when I was photographing my first G40 mural.

    It’s hard not to be pessimistic, and I find Woody’s comments re-assuring. He’s a smart guy. Lying to yourself is the way to go, though I’ve never quite called it by that name before. By the way, sorry you didn’t win the lottery. There will be other chances.

      I cannot thank your wife enough for indulging me on stops during our trip to Tidewater. After flying by this wonderful Peter Toth totem at Mt. Trashmore for over a quarter of a century, you can really see what we have missed.
      Having a bad pollen morning and along with Face the Nation am in no mood for Fool’s Day. Woody helps snap me out of it.

    I just found my BLACK SUN : THE EYES OF FOUR book and is going to push me forward with this crow photography.

    The Solitude of Ravens by Masahisa Fukase

    The Solitude of Ravens was Masahisa Fukase’s last work before he plunged into a coma. This is a monumental and pivotal work in the history of fine art photography.

    Words can never suffice for these emotional photographs. Fukase is considered to be both a legend and an enigma in his native Japan and for a culture that is traditionally reluctant to expose emotion in public, the expressionistic character of Fukase’s work has since been unparalleled in its impact.

    Born in 1934, Fukase grew up in a decade of the first Japanese children in which mannered self-control was not the ideal civic behavior. This new perspective, coupled with the effects of war, exploded into the avant-garde art scene in Tokyo. In elegant printing techniques emerged and the manic style of photography that Fukase shared with his contemporaries, among them Eikoh Hosoe, Daidoh Moriyama, and Shomei Tomatsu, reflected the “reaction to a world turned upside down.”
