I like it,,,,,,,rather avant gaurde!
We are in a spot w no WiFi and poor cell service. Am missing internet but relishing quiet, solitude and family. Will have to try catching up next week. Some of my solitude shoots. ( I even figured out how to get the WiFi between camera and phone to work in order to do this!) these were all edited on an iPhone app but taken on my Nikon 750
page #34 is excellent trio of image@@
the last frame really hangs it out there
I was sitting here going through some of my files, just looking at what I have captured over the last 8 months and I came across this photo...it was taken on an outing with my good friends, we had been together all day and being a person who does most everything alone I was getting a little edgy and needed a break from being with people, so I used the line, "Hey you guys keep going I'll catch up!" and I found this little cluster of trees and I ventured in and just sat down on the ground leaned back, closed my eyes and breathed, emptied my mind and just plain relaxed. After a few moments I opened my eyes and saw this shot and took it. When I got home a few days later, going through the photos I had taken, I came across this one and said to self, "I really like this, let's see what you can do with it!" and I played a very little bit with the windows photo processing on my computer, got a little frustrated and just slid the color slider down to no color and saved it. I seen it tonight and thought, "WOW! There is a wonderful capture of a time of solitude!" I looked at the picture info....this was my 275 shot I had taken with my Canon just 9 months ago....I'm now well over 10k....but I looked at this and the calm feeling that I had when I took it just flowed back into me... and of course I needed to share....thanks for allowing me to...

life time experience defined
I was totally alone in 1946, standing on an ice-covered alpine lake so I could capture this view. I don't know how thick the ice was, but the air was frigid. The static electric discharge in the image apparently was produced when I advanced the film -- or maybe when the Compur shutter blades opened and closed for this one exposure. But I suddenly heard sounds and looked down to see thin spidery lines fanning out in the ice under my combat books. I was quite a few yards out from the shoreline, but I managed to carefully get back to the shore. I apologize for the 73-year-old negative's quality, but the scene was such a prime example of stunning solitude that I decided to share it with you. The site was Konigsee; today there are lake cruises there for tourists.
