[THEME] Green --- color of life
« on: July 09, 2016, 08:42:52 »
Green is the light of the sun
Green is the beginning of the food chain
Green  keeps Oxygen levels at 21%

It is Green or death for all life on earth!

Go take your camera and sing praise to the Green in Sea and Land!
You are out there. You and your camera. You can shoot or not shoot as you please. Discover the world, Your world. Show it to us. Or we might never see it.

Elsa. A"Rhein II" mockoff from Southern Afrika? Dunno. The Dusseldorfer School is very arrogant. And "Rhein II" has a geographical historical and graphical advantage.

I still love your shot. But we cannot play the same league as "THE BIG GUY"

It was meant friendly. I love your shot.

The quality Grursky has is connectedness in a way we will never
achieve. Beuys. The Bechers. All the others. We cannot compete.

We are special, but ... a world renowned art school featuring some of the best artists in the canon of the "Classical Modern" epoch will look down even on people from the second best school.

That is to make sure the access to the real meaty meat is limited to the very few with access to that group.

Let's get back to the GREEN THEME, please...

Yes, indeed.  Glad you started this thread.

This is a great idea and images, Frank.
Some spectacular images already posted, Akira's minimalism, Elsa's million dollar image,  and John's delicate blur circles.

Great thread idea. I like your opening shot, Frank.

Elsa - that's indeed a million dollar shot.

The urban closeup shots are superb Akira, especially the second one.
