My brother checking out a Porsche 356C at the Owl's Head car meet.

Leica MP, 50 Summilux, Kodachrome 25 PKM. Look at all the lovely, rich black tones! Indeed, I'll miss Kodachrome.

These are some photos I took using a crystal Christmas tree ornament, a laser pointer, and a Korean pop music video that someone poasted on this board. The only post processing was increasing the contrast.

Red: Enigmatic work that reflects an empathy for your subjects soul. A poetic loneliness that stems from unaware disaffection. So technically brilliant yet wanting.

Would be interesting to see what you could do with a nude.

Thanks for the thoughtful critique. I would only disagree about the "unaware" part. I am certainly aware of my disaffection and the reasons for it. I try to be as much as possible simply an observer, looking in from a profoundly solitary outside. The result is an almost purely objective vision. Perhaps what you find wanting is a more intimate engagement with my subjects, hence the suggestion of shooting nudes.

The 'unaware disaffection' is as to do with the soul, the subject as your vision that mirrors. The reason I suggested nudes was for you to bring about that too, not intimacy, but a vulnerability unseen perhaps. If you could get the separateness of your work within that setting it might be quite wonderfully unsettling. Akin to the reaction on having a portrait painted but the artist paints the subject naked or eyes that undress, strip to the flesh. Unmasking yet not per say.

People in Ginza with hats. And speaking of "unaware disaffection," this girl . . .

Leica MP, 50 Summilux, Kodachrome 64 (the usual suspects).
