I am embarrassed at my photo posts, compared to most (all) of you others on this Topic. Pictures I've posted are candid shots using slipshod equipment, but captured the personalities of some of the people I love.

I am humbled by the quality of the art, and the photographic skills of the scooter community posting herein. But I suspect the attraction to Vespa already reveals an eye for art and form that goes beyond what is easy to capture with mere light and lens.

Doors of Italy
While we were riding around Tuscany in 2010, I was fascinated by the wonderful doors on the older buildings, and gave myself an assignment. These are just a few, I've got tons more of these.

All shot on my trusty Canon S90, best camera I've ever owned.

Must be a mutual sickness....I have a few hundred doorways, and "when I'm ready" will publish another one-off coffee table book of them to accompany some others I've made in iPhoto.

My wife thinks I'm nuts when I stop to immortalize yet another doorway.

I used to this as a framed poster in my office. I gave it to a friend who fell in love with it.

Seeing all those doorways lined up next to one another was a great visual and offered texture and contrast that you wouldn't get seeing them one after the other.

You might consider making such a combination for your Italian (or maybe European) doors.

Seems like we all have a thing for doorways .. I did a series a years ago and still had some in my flickr account. Flickr has changed the way it presents your pictures, and i just did a print screen for this image

One door, errr one more
I gravitiate towards "working" and unloved doorways.

Yes, the one's that get lived in, slept in, pissed in, shot-up in, etc. Don't know why.

But I like them all.

This was another iPhone snap from our walk through Jerusalem.

Not a doorway, but a dead-end alley inside the Old City.

If you look closely, there is a big tree growing at the very end of the dead end.

A story of obsession
There is a wonderful photographer (and former journaler) out in California named Steva Amaya. He had a a (now defunct) site called evaporation in which I saw a photo which got a hold on my mind and wouldn't let go.

According to Steve, he took the photograph at a Ventura County meeting of the United Farm Workers (UFW) who were gathered to elect the delegates who would attend the statewide convention in Fresno. When I asked him how he had come to be there , Steve told me that he had been asked to be there to document, as he puts it, "... the actual practice of democracy among men and women who've been driven to action by a history of mistreatment, disregard, outright racism, poor working/living condition, and threat of economic ruin or just plain bodily injury."

He went on to point out that "of note was the fact that very few of these people were official citizens of this country yet here was the most kind and polite constituency conducting itself with pride, optimism, and decorum...".

The actual picture is of a farm worker standing in front of a poster bearing the dual image of Mexican actress Salma Hayek in her role as Frida Kahlo (from the 2002 film 'Frida'). The contrast between the farm worker's weathered features and the actress' smooth-skinned portrayal of the Mexican surealist was almost as striking as the similarity in their determined expressions.

Each time I clicked back to look at this picure I felt like Dustin Hoffman's character in 'Rain Man' (no offense intended to autistic people)... I just couldn't stop staring at, and obsessing over that picture.

Finally I wrote Steve to tell him about my 'mild' obsession. I was worried that he might think that I was some sort of wacko (OK, we haven't really ruled that out), but he was really nice and seemed to give me the beneift of the doubt.

In a generous gesture (that I'll admit turned my head a bit), Steve offered to let me name the Photo. I sent him a couple of choices and he informed me that he had chosen "Campesino under ersatz Fridas"*... my 1st choice, as well.

A signed copy of this photograph now hangs on my office wall

* Campesino means simply 'farmer' in Spanish. However, it has many subtle meanings to Spanish speakers including 'migrant worker', 'subsistence farmer', or even 'peasant', depending on the usage. It is worth noting that, unlike some of these terms in English, the word Campesino does not have a derogatory connotation in Spanish.

You are doing just fine. The camera is just a tool. A photographer can take pictures with a cheap point and shoot, those who are not cannot take good pictures no matter what equipment.

In my opinion, what matters is the eye. Most people take a picture of the subject -- because people look at the subject and do not notice the background. The photographer sees what the camera sees -- everything, the background as well as the subject.

Deliberately or subconsciously, you were looking at the background.

Perhaps one of my most favorite pictures. A lucky shot with a camera phone, a Palm Pre no less. Take a good look, everything just lined up right.
Proof that the best camera is the one you happen to have with you...

...and that the art of photography resides in the photographer, not the equipment.

I grew up in YS. I was a campus brat. My dad attended Antioch in the 60s and never left, going from student to teacher to Dean of Students to President.

It's quite possible that we've met, then. There were a pretty regular stream of students coming and going through our house when I was a kid, and I've been around Antioch students all my life. Oddly enough, growing up I always thought they were adults. I mean, they were the same size as adults. Now that I'm quite a bit older, I realize that all those students were only large kids.

Probably. He taught communications, video (in the early days), film theory, popular culture, and so on. I'll leave it as an exercise for you to figure out.

I've spent plenty of time in that building, and in the WYSO offices. I occasionally answered the phones during fund drives, too.
Gianni wrote:

Yep, sort of. Donn Denman was a few years ahead of me in school, so I didn't know him. Matt Denman was a few years behind me, so I didn't know him either. I was acquainted with both, though, here in California, where we all worked at various times for the same company.

My dad was good friends with Steve Schwerner, and I've met him a few times over the years. And of course, I'm familiar with the very sad demise of his brother.

I've spent plenty of time in that building, and in the WYSO offices. I occasionally answered the phones during fund drives, too.

Yep, sort of. Donn Denman was a few years ahead of me in school, so I didn't know him. Matt Denman was a few years behind me, so I didn't know him either. I was acquainted with both, though, here in California, where we all worked at various times for the same company.

My dad was good friends with Steve Schwerner, and I've met him a few times over the years. And of course, I'm familiar with the very sad demise of his brother.

Food porn! I love my Fujifilm X20 for its versatility and compactness over my Canon 5D III

I didn't, but I know that they moved into the house that my dad and I moved out of (in 1981/82) when we moved out of town for a while. And I know where Dave was when he was "missing".

OK - So my Name is John Segal. I must have seen you at WYSO! From 1975 -1979 I was part of the Rise When the Rooster Crows Blue Grass Radio Show team. Also had an Irish music show on Sundays. I virtually lived at the station during my Antioch College days. Also was on the Air for all of the WYSO Fund Raising.

Another favorite Teacher was Julia Graham..Amazing Woman...

I love the X20 for it's silent shutter. Been using mine on backswings at golf tournaments and on set during filming of a television series. Basically a second camera to my 1Dx in a blimp, but there are times when that big Canon in a Jacobson makes way too much noise and the X20 works beautifully.

Solid camera that is easy to carry-almost in a pocket! Just wish I could get less noise at those higher ISO's.
