Margy Dudley's Advice

A few years back I submitted a portfolio to Margy who's the owner of the wonderful Open Shutter Gallery in Durango.  She was, shall we say, underwhelmed.  But out of her lukewarm review came some of the best advice I've had.  It was, in short, to look beyond the obvious.  To look up, down, behind you and behind the subject in search of a unique view.  Here, in a shot much like the recent "Ten Penny," I looked straight down at a newly built deck.  The perfect lines and angles were sweet geometry.  This was shot with a Leica Point and Shoot with 8.4 megapixels of resolution.  Oh that Leica glass.

Good advice, Steve, and well taken!
That Leica glass is hard to beat, but the eye behind the glass is most important.

That's what you say. Still no JF blog. What's up with that?

John Farnsworth just said it best. "The eye behind the glass is the most important." A stunning shot, truly luscious!

Thanks Daryl. I've always like that shot since I really like shapes and plane geometry. Notice the profile pic? It's cropped from the man and guitar shot you did of me and that I posted last week..
