Because photography is still our home
I sometimes wonder what it might be like to have a gallery of my own work that I curated for my own amusement. What would I put there? What would I leave out? Would I open my gallery to the public or keep it private?
There are a lot of things to consider in that scenario, not the least of which would be the incredible amount of time it would take to pull prints and have them framed. I rather doubt that I would be up to seeing after everything.
Still, if I were choosing ten pictures for display this morning, it would be the following images. For many of them, this is the first time they’ve been processed and shown to the public. None of them have been processed in this fashion before now. We worked directly from the original RAW files and applied new technologies to our processing methods to create a specific tone that I find intriguing.
I thought oh-so-briefly about adding some type of descriptor but ultimately thought better of it. I will let you see what you want to see and interpret how you wish to interpret. My statement is in the photographs themselves, so nothing more need be said by me.
With our new daily emphasis on presenting verified news, we’re busier than ever now. The process we use is time-consuming as we vet every article and source. That doesn’t leave me a lot of time for just playing with the archives. Perhaps, if you keep reading the news articles, we’ll create a new gallery each Sunday. If you’re really lucky, we might actually shoot new pictures. That would be interesting, wouldn’t it? We’ve not done that in a while.
So, enjoy today’s gallery, please. I’m sorry there’s no way for me to serve you digital champagne. Use your imagination. Make sure it’s the good stuff.
