The Inner Path of Photography

We yearn for the taste of the sacred…and through our cameras discover it, the world, and ourselves.

Tag: Istanbul

Showing context…

Actually, I like this image too. It gives you the context of the previous image…this is what we came upon while walking down the street.

This woman was actually making bread in the window of the restaurant.

No need for signs…you got the message.

Images from Istanbul

Printing images from my trip to Istanbul in March of this year.

How do you choose what to print? I go with what gives me energy, makes me light up, laugh, smile, or feel some kind of emotion. I started with the intention of printing some of the graffiti art I discovered, but got side tracked into some other street scenes that I had forgotten about that visually got my attention.

I’m also trying to categorize my images so when I’m looking for them later they’re easy to find. Hooray for tags! But in the process I’m learning how much I DON’T know about using Lightroom 3 to best advantage (where’s my darkroom?!! where’s my easy filing of negatives in notebooks?)  but hanging in there, knowing that eventually I’ll have a system just like I did when using film.

Here’s a sample from the printing session:

And the road goes on forever and the party never ends…

Hagia Sophia, Istanbul, April 2010

Last month I was in Istanbul, now in Taos, NM, in a few days, Houston and Galveston, Texas! Where will the road lead next? Still enjoying the party of life…

Photo by Heidi…but thanks for a great line, Robert Earl Keen!
