I’ve just had my seventh work “explored” on Flickr. As many of you know I don’t very often produce absolutely “straight” photographic work which, on the whole, I think that Flickr explore seems to prefer so I’m always surprised and delighted when one of my works appear there. By way of a little celebration I thought I’d post them here in chronological order. The first work entitled “Last of the Summer Wine” is a pretty conventional work but still a surprise when it appeared in Explore.
And then came this work “Between the Ponds” which came as a real surprise as it’s an out and out, full on painterly work and generally-speaking more reflective of my style and interest.
The next two works “The colours of spring” and “Under Pressure!” again in a painterly style and, in the later case, the first of my “Klimtesque” style works to be explored.
This work, “Good Light” is a bit of both, certainly not an out and out straight work and not overtly painterly either., a sort of halfway house if you like and marks a bit of a change in my style.
My most recent explores ” Come all ye faithful” and “Dreamscape” have really pleased me as I think that they reflect the direction which my work has taken recently.
Another place that I sometimes post my work to is to the Olympus Gallery. Understandably perhaps they nearly always favour straight photography as they’re a manufacturer of photographic equipment but it would be nice if they occasionally recognised that not everyone that uses their equipment produces conventional photographic works.
