Pondering

This weekend friends and I visited several exhibitions of famous photographers.
It is still photomonth with so many fantastic photos to look at. One of the galleries we visited was the Barbican Art Gallery to see the works of Robert Capa, Gerda Taro, Geert van Kesteren, Omer Fast, Paul Chan and An-My LĂȘ. I also saw the current exhibition of Annie Leibovitz's work at the National Portraits Gallery.
All these famous photographers manage to portray so much emotion in their work. It is both inspiring and intimidating.
I'll just continue plodding on and maybe one day I will take a photo worthy of mention.

I think we all feel like that. We just have to keep doing what we're doing.

I'm hoping to see the Annie Leibovizt's exhibition. Is it good?

I find blogging to be a very humbling experience and also a very creative one.

Just remember that these photographers are/were using cameras that cost a lot, take hundreds of photographs to get just one good one, use filters, multiple lenses, and manipulate the image once they're in the darkroom/on the computer. I forget that all the time but seeing your post reminded me of it. I think you have a great eye for composition and that you're doing great work.

I have to say I am jealous of you visiting all the exhibitions. This is a fabulous image, so at least I get to visit your exhibition.
