The Eye of the Beholder
It goes without saying that this is a blog about photography. Its about how we use photography and how photography has changed our perception of things. Its a personal blog so it will contain images that I like and hopefully will have some explanations as to why.
The Eye of the Beholder. Well, yes, its all in the eye of the beholder. Its your opinion, its about what you like……. if you give an opinion, and you are very welcome to express it …. if you give an opinion please validate it ….. you know, say why …… especially if you believe its all one big mistake. I make those all the time.
So if its all in the eye of the beholder, let’s see if I can persuade you to stay and have a look around; perhaps even come back and visit again…..
My first selection of images come from Japan. These images skirt the edges. They aim to be more about photography than about any particular place in Japan, though as it happens most of them were taken in the Kagawa Prefecture, so they skirt the edges of the reality to give a flavour, this is not a travelogue after all. ….. and as an impression takes a while to become evident, perhaps you might just browse through them, stopping here and there to savour a picture. If you find yourself muttering under your breath, that is also good. If I can’t delight and enchant you, lets hope that I can irritate you.
