the secret magic of photography

fascinated by a magic BLUE. Maybe a BLUES-feeling? Many of the moods (a photographer as an artist is wandering through) stay secret, subconsciously.

Ivor Berg comments: “I took this in the middle of the night on Ed and Frans balcony. I loved both of the cats, but they were incredibly suicidal all the time. They actually fought and chased each other on this railing, and as you can see its pretty damn fucking high. My heart always skipped a beat when I saw them doing this, but Ed told me its OK. Loco gatos potones!”

Cindy Seigle comments: “Came across these two buggies on a rainy morning recently. I had to wait until we topped the hill to pass, so I took the opportunity to snap a couple shots of them…”

comparing these two very different pictures I feel, we could start to understand, WHY and WHEN a photographer feels a “MUST” to shoot. Comparing: a cat (1, by Ivo Berg) is not a human being (2, by Cindy Seigle). Amish people communities (2, medieval lifestyle) not Santiago de Chile (1, permanent night lights). Courage (1, fearless bastard cat) is very different to the efforts of following the rules of an old religion (2, no electricity as a rule). But the same: it seems, both photographers were fascinated by a magic BLUE. Maybe a BLUES-feeling? Many of the moods (a photographer as an artist is wandering through) stay secret, subconsciously.
