Photographs

I stopped taking photographs in the mid 70s when I lost my darkroom..my experiences with photo labs was expensive and  a waste of time as they didnt see what I saw  so I gave up and threw away all my darkroom. I began again when digital arrived as it was possible then to crop and reset the image how I wanted it ..many of my early images were poorly printed as I was learning as I went.  I am not a photographer , I just take photographs along the way and care little for expensive equipment relying more on where I point the camera and when I press the shutter..I like to see what the camera does within its own technical manufacture  almost as much as my own capability .No matter how poorly designed  I like to see how it performs ...   In fact it adds to my interest the cheaper and more basic as its like a pinhole camera ..the first one .  I wish I could start taking pictures again from the beginning as I would do it differently.

Photography is just like painting, expensive equipment wont make it good . its what your mind sees that makes it of interest to someone else .... and we do it all for someone else to look at.   It is a struggle to be what we believe we are .
