Smart Phones And Digital Photography

Yes, and No. There is a use for both or all formats going from an 8x10 inch to 6x17 to 4x5 to 6x6 Medium format to 35mm, Digital and iPhone Smartphone - all has its own use. We are only just discovering and in the process, of course, there is noise as to where it is going and taking over. Pick up a medium format Hasselblad and take a photograph of a landscape or nude, the discipline and your thoughts will be different. Use each as a tool for what you see and not the other way around.

Cheers!

Nostalgic Oceanside Oregon Coast

July 22nd, 2018

Nostalgic Oceanside Oregon Coast

Strolling by the vast nostalgic cinematic Oregon coast.

On a road trip through Oregon, I came upon this gorgeous spot where the ocean waves were tumultuously declaring it's love to the sand, repeatedly kissing the sand at different moments whereupon I noticed the love was being shared in tranquillity by a couple walking along the waterline on the beach. The mystical sky added to the vast distant mysterious ocean and colours. I rushed quickly to grab my Nikon and my 70-200 mm Nikkor VR IF-ED F2.8 lens and my Gitzo carbon fibre tripod from the trunk of my BMW Z4 roadster. I took a deep breath to capture and breathe the moment before carefully placing the couple at the point I wanted them in and snapped 3 shots. As I turned I saw yet another gorgeous moment which I will share in another photograph. Capturing landscapes is a moment of escape for me for the tranquillity and stillness is absolutely spiritual.

This photograph has been featured in several groups including Abc Group, Contemporary, Landscapes Artistics Photos and more to come. Some links below.

Congratulations! Your marvelous art has been featured on the Home Page of the ABC Group. This art has been selected from the ABC Group's T IS FOR TRANQUILITY themed week. You are invited to add this to the features archive discussions and in another discussion in ABC Group!

Summer Waves Cape Lookout Oregon Coast Framed Print

Summer Waves Cape Lookout Oregon Coast Framed Print

Summer Waves Cape Lookout Oregon Coast Framed Print. A view of the waves rolling along Oregon coast from Cape Lookout in Netarts Bay along Whiskey Creek Road on a sunny summer day with the gorgeous ocean waves.

That sunny afternoon in the BMW Z4 Roadster Black with Beige leather interior with the soft top down and having cruised the Pacific Coast Highway it was wonderful to come up to this spot and stop! The tripod went up and the Nikon D800 with a lens I love, at that sunny afternoon it made sense to catch the moment as the ocean waves broke the shore....

Enjoy, as a canvas or framed print.

Sleepy Dhow Boats Zanzibar

Dhow is the generic name of a number of traditional sailing vessels with one or more masts with lateen sails used in the Red Sea and Indian Ocean region. Some historians claim the dhow was invented by Arabs or Indians, but the majority give the credit to the Chinese. Typically sporting long thin hulls, dhows are trading vessels primarily used to carry heavy items, like fruit, fresh water or merchandise, along the coasts of the Eastern Arabia (Arab states of the Persian Gulf), Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and East Africa. Larger dhows have crews of approximately thirty, smaller ones typically around twelve.

The exact origins of the dhow are lost to history. Most scholars believe that it originated in China between 600 B.C. to 600 A.D[citation needed]. Some claim that the sambuk, a type of dhow, may be derived from the Portuguese caravel.

Even to the present day, dhows make commercial journeys between the Persian Gulf and East Africa using sails as their only means of propulsion. Their cargo is mostly dates and fish to East Africa and mangrove timber to the lands in the Persian Gulf. They often sail south with the monsoon in winter or early spring, and back again to Arabia in late spring or early summer.

Dhow (Arabic داو dāw) is the generic name of a number of traditional sailing vessels with one or more masts with lateen sails used in the Red Sea and Indian Ocean region. Some historians claim the dhow was invented by Arabs or Indians, but the majority give the credit to the Chinese. Typically sporting long thin hulls, dhows are trading vessels primarily used to carry heavy items, like fruit, fresh water or merchandise, along the coasts of the Eastern Arabia (Arab states of the Persian Gulf), Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and East Africa.

The Yemeni Hadhrami people, as well as Omanis, for centuries came to Beypore, in Kerala, India for their dhows. This was because of the good timber in the Kerala forests, the availability of good coir rope, and the skilled carpenters who specialized in ship building. In former times, the sheathing planks of a dhow's hull were held together by coconut rope. Beypore dhows are known as 'Uru' in Malayalam, the local language of Kerala. Settlers from Yemen, known as 'Baramis', are still active in making urus in Kerala.

In the 1920s, British writers identified Al Hudaydah as the center for dhow building. Those built in Al Hudaydah were smaller in size, and used for travel along the coasts. They were constructed of acacia found in Yemen.

Captain Alan Villiers (1903-82) documented the days of sailing trade in the Indian Ocean by sailing on dhows between 1938 and 1939 taking numerous photographs and publishing books on the subject of dhow navigation.

Even to the present day, dhows make commercial journeys between the Persian Gulf and East Africa using sails as their only means of propulsion. Their cargo is mostly dates and fish to East Africa and mangrove timber to the lands in the Persian Gulf. They often sail south with the monsoon in winter or early spring, and back again to Arabia in late spring or early summer.
