Great AnimeshRay 2007-11-11 8:53

Dear Sohrab,
Good to see you post again. This time the stormy sea. The spray is critically if taken with a flash, but if I know you I doubt you used a flash. Probably a short exposure on a highly pushed film. A rather unusual photo, excellent rendition of the tonal range.

What moves me here is the power of water. It is quite unlike the playful sketch of turbulent waters done by Leonardo. Here there is a sense of deep restlessness, of anxiety and resignation, perhaps of fear. Allusion to the happenings at this same coast a few years ago, of waves breaking here, traveling over the expanse of the sea some thousand miles, is recalled with a historical clarity. But more generally it also recalls man's fear of the depth.

You have inspired me to go out and shoot like this.

Default To AnimeshRay: greetings from bangkok

after almost 48 hours of madness i've reached bangkok.
actually animesh i used a flash for this :)
i want to go out and experiment with the flash now. i don't think the raindrops would have been caught if it were only taken at high speed film.
i do't know.. i guess i''ve been feeling much freer these days
atleast mentally as far as photography is concerned
