Fieldlife (plowing for the future) 06.10.07
Gertie 24. Oktober 2007, 19:19Countrylike....plowing with so big machines is the daily work of a farmer ...no one remembers the horse-plowing from former times and the many paintings of that.....this is just a modern way...and in decades of years...what might it be then...?? Because you made the pic supposingly with wide -angle it looks very dymanically. Greetings Gertrud
Claudia Jenniges 24. Oktober 2007, 17:36Thank´s for the detailed answer, Frederick.
To most of your pics:
What I wrote (combiner...) had been a kind of a flighty
it changed to figurative idea and now it´s grown up, adult.
I´ was able to transform it into words, your work.
Nice to meet you :)

(long pause thinking)
funny you should say that ... as
that's what I have been thinking myself
the last few days.... which is odd
(not that you were thinking the same thing.. but rather ) because I remember when
I started to fotograf
(you were most likely not born then)
color film was 1. rare
3, and I was very opinionated ... thinking
(yes I thought that too) that one can't really fotograf in color ... because I, as a painter... has control the entire composition... the materia, format (size of canvas or paper) the colors...
(not that I was then a control freak)..
but an artist (painter)
even when he paints portraits or landscapes ... adjusted the color to compositon mood feeling...
when a person came to pose... wearing a red dress..
I could paint it white... (with blue stars)
because it was better for the compositon.
(do you see what I'm trying to get at this far?)
(continues without a pause)
yes.. to make a long story short...
since I returned to my berufung
(as man artist failure)
after my social retirement
II took up fotografing
first as relaxation and fun
when I discovered my artist eye returned..
(I could see again)
I started.. well.. you can see.. ummmmm.....
it occured to me the other day...
my opinion about color fotografie has changed ...
I myself am amazed how well I manage color mood feeling and compositon...
thank you claudia... your statement helped me very much to clear out some of the fuzz I have been collectiong between my ears... (you may not see it that way.. but it's true, *g & .
