A Photographer's Eye

"The only thing we know about the future is that it will be different." - Peter Drucker

Over the years I 've had people ask now and then why I don't sell my photographs; why don't I enter contests. I've wondered, publishing the blog over the past year, what type of response I would receive if I put my work up for sale. I've decided it's time to find out.

I'm at a point, though, where I don't think I can fit one more thing on my plate. Unless I do it half assed. And that's not my style. So, I've worked things out with one of my associates to open and operate an online art gallery for me.

Normally I'm not on the client side of the desk. As a consultant, though, I learned quickly that two things affect client success. Accepting good advice and having them be diligent about doing the things to which we have agreed.

Given that, we will be launching a new blog this coming week. We'll be offering photographic prints for $20 including postage and handling. {Not digital prints run off a computer printer.} The catalogue will include my photographs, lithographs and renderings which have appeared in The Gonzo Papers. {And additional images which haven't been blogged.}

Upon request, I will autograph the prints. 8-)

Last night I went out to shoot the sunset. I only managed to get three shots that I thought were worth keeping. When I came home the weather was on; they said the "feels like" temperature, with the windchill, was 5 degrees.

GREAT IDEA! Another wonderful shot... what do you think of when you take a photograph like this? ~M

Thank you, ~M. We'll see how it works out.

Your compliment is appreciated. I have to feel inspiration to go out that comes into play as to what I think.

Shooting sunsets is an interesting proposition because, I think, it requires having faith and being patient. The sun always sets, but there's not always a sunset. It's something that in a way happens very quickly and in another way something you have to wait to develop in terms of capturing the shot you want. Which means you can also wait too long and the shot disappears.

Photographing "things" to me is alot different than capturing "moments".

I like the idea, Kilroy, and I hope it goes well for you - you have some beautiful and interesting photos and lithographs, and I sincerely hope the business venture works out.

I know, from my experience with sunsets, that patience is required. I tend to take pictures constantly, until the light is gone, and hope that I've captured what I wanted to. Sometimes I do, sometimes I don't... but fun trying anyhow!
