  1. Lovely shots all but I especially like the last. The light on the water emanating onto the woman overlooking that stunning silvery scene is beautiful.

  4. all good, but the second is mesmerizing, what a view. i've got a dark brooding sort of reddish piece written that is begging for a robert-pic of a similar vein, if you are interested in collaberating (again)...

  6. What startles me here is how you have created story between three photographs, a story that I know didn't actually exist. There is indeed a brooding between these three. There has been a loss, a grief, and a reflection, and so you have created this story, for I know that in the first picture I just could not look at the camera. It is a hard hard thing to do to expose yourself like that. (Learning more about my daughter this way.) And then the second a static shot which does not look static, a place which has been a part of your own grieving and living process. And then the third shot, me advancing toward the ocean, trying to encapsulate the experience for my children. Did you know that? That that is what I was doing? Trying to hear and feel it so that I might explain to the children what such fierce ocean is really like? There is so much between these photos, what is and what isn't present. It is startling. Stories go off in every direction.

  7. soooo dark, why?
    I guess to accentuate the light.
    sooo beautiful the light, especially in the last picture.
    Erin, it's wonderfull to hear the stories in between the photos, the dark, the light.

  8. erin and katrin - the story evolved as we were on that cliff over looking the ocean. i had been to that sight many many times. i used to go there to find a little peace. looking at the graves always seemed to comfort me. there they were at rest in a place so wondrous.

    Crissant - Thank you very much.

  9. What a contrast, between emotions and colors, between dark and light. Lovely pics charged with a powerful dose of emotions. Like a never ending afternoon some where there in the imagination.
    Some times i feel like you and graves, where do the comfort come from?? maybe from the promise of a truce and rest.
    Regards and keep well Robert
