"Colour has always had something secretive about it that is difficult to grasp. This mysterious quality penetrates the mind. The colours are the most irrational elements in painting." Paul Klee

THE TAVERN SHOOT

I had a pretty neat time today photographing at The Tavern...very cool place.

Great food, really cold beer!! Yummers!!  Sadly I didn't get to taste the beer while working but it's definitely a must stop next time I'm in Austin. 

The staff was wonderful - I just hope I didn't get in everybody's way.

A huge shout out to Stephanie...and to the staff at The Tavern.

Thanks for a super way to spend an afternoon.

Thanks for stopping by.

THE CLOUDS OF SUMMER

The clouds were pretty amazing yesterday. I went for a brief (it was 98 outside!) walk along the pond on Vista Place. I may have been channeling Alfred Stieglitz or Minor White and their practice of "Equivalences".

"The mechanisms by which a photograph functions as an Equivalent in a viewer's psyche are the familiar ones which psychologists call "projection" and "empathy".  J. Nevins

CINEMA PARADISO



©2018 Andy deBruyn

My homage to the movie Cinema Paradiso.  Every time I watch it I learn something more about life and the craft of cinematography.

A true testament to the power of imagery.

The director of photography, Blasco Giurato, makes every frame a wonder to look at...and at 77, Blasco is still very much an active cinematographer currently working on his fourth feature for 2018.

In Europe, mature masters of their craft, are still revered and held in high esteem.

Thanks for stopping by.

Limes, lemons, peaches, and mangoes surrounded by textures.

I used window light and a Lowell silver reflector with a 50mm lens, camera on tripod, shutter tripped with a cable.
