Giacometti Walking Man Morning Rush, Darling Haarbour

Giacometti is best known for the bronze sculpt[22ures of tall, thin human figures, made in the years 1945 to 1960. He was influenced by the impressions he took from the people hurrying in the big city. People in motion he saw as ‘a succession of moments of stillness’. The emaciated figures are often...

Re: Is The Schneider Super Angulon XL 47mm 1:5.6 Any Good?

I love the mood of both those ahots Mark. I'm still trying to determine if one takes precedence. Each is their own narrative.

Re: Is The Schneider Super Angulon XL 47mm 1:5.6 Any Good?

Thanks for the comments gents, Colour has always a matter of commercial expedience in my world view. In my recreational endeavours I find it a largely unnecessary and unwelcome intrusion. But sometimes it can be the subject aand that's a different matter. Having said that I quite like it as intrinsi...

Re: Observatory Tower Indoor Wet-Edge Pool

Thanks Maris, careful exposure always. I'm not sure how it is these days but given that it is building of private apartments owned by some heavy hitters (including at lrast one former PM) it might still comparatively undefiled. Architects invariably give the brief to get in and shoot quickly before ...

Re: More Fujifilm ending

Masters of infanticide. They gave birth to two of the most emulsions and suddenly killed off Acros and Astia years ago nothing much else has mattered since then. I've never thought much of their other stocks, but thanks for the heads up.

Is The Schneider Super Angulon XL 47mm 1:5.6 Any Good?

You tell me ......... I'd been using the Schneider Super Angulon XL 58mm for quite a while, it had quickly become almost my 'normal lens for the stream of habitat I was engaged in. Then first 47mm came available. I drove out to Vaucluse, set up beside the old convent and shot the sunset over over th...

Re: Observatory Tower Library

Thanks, the warm colours are quite comforting but all the wall covering in these communal spaces was padded velvet and so 2/3rds of the shooting time was taken up with going around with a suede brush smoothing the nap where every potential buyer (and their kids) had been compelled to write, swipe, o...

Re: In Praise Of Minor White

John, I also served some time beforw the mast Shooting for habitat and, to a lesser extent, lifestyle, magazines. Thankfully I managed to dodge the bullet of RealEstate ads.

Re: In Praise Of Minor White

When you mention "the brief" did you do this work always with film? I'd not heard of Minor White before this. Observatory Tower was originally the IBM Building and it underwent extensive redevelopment as a residential conversion completed in 1996 which is when I documented the building fo...
