    “The eye should learn to listen before it looks.”
    Robert Mapplethorpe
    1946 – 1989

    Mapplethorpe was an American photographer who became known for his large-scale photographic images. His series of homoerotic portraits were subject to much controversy.

    I’ll admit this quote has me a bit confused.

    Steve you are correct in questioning this as it is also attributed to Robert Frank as you discovered. Mapplethorpe died young in 1989 and afaik Frank is still alive in his 90s. Any future info about this quote is welcomed but I'm now leaning towards Frank.

    A futile wait for the promised clearance of today's rain, is it happening? no it's not, a clear night is forecast and then we repeat it all tomorrow with more rain, shakes head slowly.

    Luckily I took this first thing this morning before the rain arrived.

    I think there’s something going on with my sensor or some kind of EMF interference generating these artefacts in this image...

    Sun finally came out for a while. An old railroad switch I've shot numerous times. CL and 23mm f2 Summicron T-mount.

    Early morning shot taken when I went to get the papers from the village co-op.
    DSCF5762_Snapseed.
    Not very well framed as I was standing in the middle of a busy road and couldn't hang about.
    Only two shops left now out of the seven when we first moved here.

    Holdover leaves and fruit from Autumn 2017. Common Floweringquince, Chaenomeles speciosa, is one of our earliest leafing and flowering shrubs. You can see reddish flower buds already swelling in preparation for Spring.

    Day Twenty Nine - the wrong escape plan

    Tough challenge finding leaves in Edinburgh after all the wind and rain this weekend. Finally found this lonely little guy flipping and flopping his way across the grass in front of the Scottish Parliament trying to escape me.

  19. My final three shots will be with a X-E2 instead of the X-Pro2 because the Pro2 is getting boxed up for sale
