Moment#15–Tour Time

This is the last week for our photo exhibition, Moments and Souls at the Percolate Gallery in Pittsburgh. I realize that many of you can not make it in to the gallery so over the next few weeks I will be publishing “the moments” that were my contribution to the show.

This Image was taken in 1977 In New York City.

Moment#14–The Wolves of Prague

This is the last week for our photo exhibition, Moments and Souls at the Percolate Gallery in Pittsburgh. I realize that many of you can not make it in to the gallery so over the next few weeks I will be publishing “the moments” that were my contribution to the show.

This image was taken in the center of Old Town in Prague. During a weekend market crowded with people, a man walks a wolf and two wolf dogs through the crowd.

Moment#13–Heat

This is the last week for our photo exhibition, Moments and Souls at the Percolate Gallery in Pittsburgh. I realize that many of you can not make it in to the gallery so over the next few weeks I will be publishing “the moments” that were my contribution to the show.

This image was taken in Lake Como Italy. I was photographing without looking through the viewfinder while walking. Holding the camera to my eye to take this picture might have entirely changed this moment.

Dreamboat

I grew up in Cleveland Ohio for the first part of my childhood. We used to vacation on lakes and I would go fishing with my dad. We would see Chris Craft boats on the lake and I would ask my Dad why would couldn’t have one of those. He would laugh and say well may someday you will. I still have never ridden in one of these beauties and plan to change that soon but I will never be able to afford one without winning the lottery.

We saw this one while waiting for a steamer in Lake Como. It was privately owned and not available for hire. Who knows maybe it was George Clooney’s

Candidate #2–Prelude to a Kiss

I am starting to toy with the concept of doing more exhibition photography after we relocate. During the 1970’s I worked as a photojournalist in Pittsburgh and displayed some work in museum shows including the Carnegie Museum. I stopped working in the field when I became involved in printing and publication. I retired early so I could pick up Photography again and began doing photojournalism although this time without assignments. I am looking for work that Henri Cartier-Bresson would like.

I am going to be posting images that I may have posted before with a candidate # thereby collecting a list of what I feel would be likely candidates to print. We came across this scene in lake Como Italy but the kiss never happened. The young man saw me right after I took this and they waited for us to leave before continuing their “conversation” Please feel free to leave comments if you agree or disagree about including them in a “best of” list.

Prelude to a Kiss

Prelude to a Kiss

This photograph was taken in Como Italy a couple of years ago. It was the trigger that has caused me to look for images like this ever since to create a book of people kissing in public places. There is that moment, before two people kiss when you commit to the fact that it is inevitable. This is one of those moments.

Henri Cartier-Bresson created the concept of the the decisive moment. To capture such a moment is the essence of Photojournalism. I like to think that he would have appreciated this image. You can buy a print of this image at my commercial gallery by clicking here.

Lago Como Italia

At the foot of lake Como lies the port city of Como. From this harbor you can take steam boats to the other towns along the lake like Portofino or Tavernola. There is also a ferry system on the lake which is much like using a metro in Milan or Paris. People buy monthly passes and commute to jpbs and schools along the lake.

I can’t think of a better way to spend a day than cruising on Lake Como during the warmth of summer. Many people visit Lake Como without ever going out on the lake which is like sleeping through a movie. This pristine location is home to George Clooney and many other famous people and by spending a day there you will learn why.

Cruising on lake Como

If you drive to Lake Como or take a Bus or Boat you might miss this great scene. This is the side of a sculpture you see as descending the stairs from the Lake Como Train Station. It is called the Monumento ai Caduti per Servicio and dedicated to disabled service people. It was created by Francesco Somaini and is actually a sculpture of two hands but from this angle it looks like the City is waving hello.
