Tuesday Photo Challenge – Round Up 84

Progress can be good!

Welcome to the 84th round up of the Tuesday Photo Challenge!  It was great to see how you thought about Progress in all of your posts!

It appears that progress is welcomed by most of you, although you may be selective about the types of progress you support. Many of your posts looked back and found areas where progress is a bonus, such as indoor plumbing. Many views were nostalgic, which I can definitely relate to 🙂 It was a true joy to read your posts!!

Thank you all for your wonderful effort in putting these posts together!

Here’s another item that was run over by progress…

Photographic Recall

As I was walking through Atlanta, in search of an office supply store, I encountered this shuttered store; a reminder that much progress has been made in photography, as 1 hr. color film developing is not fast enough in this day and age.

The following were this week’s participants in the challenge with links to their posts:

  • Sarah kicked things off this week, by reminding us of progress that we do not want in an outstanding post in By Sarah!
  • In Land of Images, we see the changes that have taken place on poles and pylons to going underground.

A Fresh Perspective Photography is more than just a vehicle for capturing the world around me; it provides me with a palette and a set of brushes, with which I paint not only what I see, but also look to express the emotions that are evoked by the scene in front of me in that moment. Growing up in the Netherlands exposed me to a wide cross-section of visual arts that laid the foundation of my photographic view of all that surrounds me. Early influences were the Dutch Masters of the 17th century, to whom I was introduced by my grandfather during museum explorations; favorites among them are the scenes of quotidian life depicted by Jan Steen and Frans Hals and the vivid landscapes of Jacob van Ruisdael. My classical high school education was supplemented by the Boijmans Van Beuningen museum, where I spent many a lunch hour exploring its great collection. Here I was introduced to surrealism with a particular love for the approach taken by Salvador Dali; Dali also rekindled my appreciation for the work of Hieronymus Bosch, who often showed the folly of us mortals. Universal Connections My approach to any photographic subject is to look for understanding first; in this I look to establish either a connection between the viewer and the subject or capture the connection of the subject with its surroundings. The captured image then aims to portray this connection from a perspective that is part of my personal interpretation. This interpretation is often a form of externalized introspection, which may alternately display the connection of isolated beings and items with their environment or highlight the whimsy of the profound world, in which we find ourselves. The universe is full of connections, many of which are waiting to be discovered; part of my journey as a photographer is to document these connections. Any assignment, be it an event, a product shoot or a portrait session is always approached through communication with the client; this is where the first connection is established. Ideas are exchanged and a collaborative plan of action forms, ultimately resulting in a set of images that aim to exceed the expectations of each client. And, lest we forget, it is important to have fun while practicing the serious business of photography!
