Famous Photographer Quote #0296

Oliver Gagliani

“It is the photographer, through the medium of light, who must confront these objects directly, not as he would like them to be, but as they are in themselves. It is the measure of his success as to how deeply he is able to perceive the life which they have experienced, and penetrate the surface to tap the wisdom which they have to offer.”

Oliver Gagliani 

(1917-2002)

Brother Tree, tell me what have you seen
Brother Wind, tell me where have you been
Sister Water, why do I feel like I know
All of them told me, all that they said was one word…

My Photography MO:

  1. Get off the interstate.
  2. Get on a Country back road.
  3. When you see a scenic overlook, resist the temptation to stop and take the exact same photo the other 50 tourists are taking at the exact same time.
  4. If you see a dirt road take it.
  5. When the dirt road ends, get out and hike.
  6. Now you have a much better chance of finding a unique scene that hasn’t already be photographed a million times.

Famous Artist Quote #0293

Vincent Van Gogh

“If one draws a pollard willow as if it were a living being, which after all is what it really is, then the surroundings follow almost by themselves, provided only that one has focused all one’s attention on that particular tree and not rested until there was some life in it.”

Vincent Van Gogh

Letter to Theo van Gogh, circa 15 October 1881

 Paschal Morning in the Open Space

Coastal Live Oak, Easter Morning, Cheeseboro Canyon

Paschal Morning in the Open Space

~ view larger ~

It was a glorious, foggy Easter morning in Cheesesboro and Comado Canyons. My hike started at daybreak with not much visibility so I didn’t see any bobcats, coyotes, deer, or puma (a long shot anyway). There were just a few cotton tail rabbits that quickly scurried into the mist, and I could only imagine the grizzly bears that once thrived in these canyons before being exterminated by cattle ranchers. The cows are gone now and the native flora and fauna are making a comeback. There were coastal live oak seedings sprouting everywhere assuring there will be many more specimen live oaks like the one pictured above in the future.
