Scott Jarvie440,603*POST YOUR GOOGLE+ ALBUM OF PICTURES* It's been very very popular event in the past and I'm finally doing it again tonight. _This time it will be more organized, more heads up than usual and even a live event._ *SHARE AN ALBUM/GALLERY LINK* It's simple and easy but a lot of work and very fun for all. You simply share an album here and I'll be going through every single one of the albums. Then I will +1 the pictures in the album that I'm really drawn to. *BENEFIT* Well it's simply if you'd love to know which pictures I like most.  I always loved knowing which pictures people really love of mine because it helps me have an eye for which pictures are best received. It's a huge part of becoming a better photographer in my opinion. _*To be able to put out great art is first to know what great art looks like*_ *ON AIR* This will be something new... I'm going to go through all the albums Live, Online as an On-Air hangout. I'll talk a little bit about what I'm doing. If the show goes well I'll keep it for later viewing on YouTube... if the recording isn't great I won't. *SPECIAL GUEST* Because I want to have an outloud conversation about what and why I'm doing things  I will have my good friend and great photographer @109486822103622036238 on the show to facilitate the discussion. She will also visit a lot of these albums and +1 pictures as well. We ask that everyone add her to a circle ... not just because she's awesome (though that's reason enough) but so that if any of these albums are by mistake limited access she will have access. *DIRECTIONS* 1. Paste a link of a Google+ image gallery 2. Put a title or description of what we'll see in the album 3.  *IMPORTANT* If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and perhaps your profile in a recorded Youtube video. 4. Make sure the album is Public access 5. Add @100962871525684315897  @109486822103622036238 to your circles 6. Return the favor. Take some of the other people's albums and +1 some of your favorites. *IMPORTANT* It bears repeating: _If you post a link you hereby give us permission to use a screenshare view of all those pictures and your profile (maybe) in a recorded Youtube video._ Do not post a link if you are not ok with lots of people visiting that link in addition to us and are not ok with it being on video as well.Share your Album- A Jarvie PlusOne Critique Experience2012-09-12 05:30:00142

When I first started experimenting with infrared photography a few years ago, I wanted to avoid the kitschy whites that so many typical IR photos rely on (and often at the expense of composition). So I "burned" my IR images heavily and "dodged" them lightly. Now ... I am trying to figure out how to use the whites in a non-kitschy way (so I am "dodging" heavily and "burning" lightly). For me, the allure of black and white photography has always been about tone, tone, tone ... so, here I am continuing my search for tones but now in a decidely whitish landscape of my imagination ... yup ... yup ... yup.

Minimalism Study XI

I am fairly certain that this will not matter to anyone, but this image is a consequence of some of my recent studies of the Tao as well as my continued studies of Zen calligraphy.  I am not saying that this photo is based on either of those things-- only that the image ultimately came to be after I explored those things ...

It's been a while since I have posted a new feature over at my slices of silence site.  There are two new pages over there now.  The first is an essay,  expressed in words and images, by Polish photographer Piotr Wyrzykowski  about the Warmia region.  It's a beautiful series of black and white squares focused on mists, sun rays, tree-lined roads, and other slices of beauty.  Do yourself a favor and go read and view it now ...

I encourage anyone who happens to come across this post to check out Blur magazine.  They feature a lot of very interesting work, and I really appreciate their overall goal and purpose.  I'll let their own words speak for them:

"Although we’re a small & non-profit organization, we have a clear vision for BLUR since day one – disregard everything about photography except photography itself. We’re not impressed by your camera model or the focal length of your lens; the only thing we care about is how your photos look and, more importantly, how they make us feel.

So, I recently collaborated with Peter Weltner on a book of his poetry.  Quite a few of the poems were born from images that I sent him to look at, and a few of my images were born from reading his poems.  The book includes 8 of my images. To make all of this, for me at least, wonderfully more personal, when I was an undergrad and a graduate student at San Francisco State University, I took many poetry classes with Peter (as well as a fantastic class on Faulkner and another on contemporary fiction).  To say the least, those years of poetry study have contributed profoundly to how I approach the images I take. With all of that in mind, this book means a lot to me, personally, because I got to collaborate with a person who has been a significant mentor in my life (and remains one).  The book is available for purchase via Amazon should you have any interest.  Your purchase will help fund Brickhouse Books,a no... more »

This is an image that has meant a lot to me over the years, so much so that I have never shared it before.  I'm not quite sure why I am sharing it now, but here it is in all of its awkward, highly personal self consciousness.

I can't really understand why anyone decided to call this location Bowling Ball Beach ... they look like dinosaur eggs to me (or as my friend Lynne Baron Goodwin said: truffles). Anyway ... this one was taken in the light of a lovely sunset (I returned for sunrise the next day). Onward and upward (and maybe even sideways).

I first saw Star Trek when I was around four of five years old. I have a very faint memory of being at my great grandparent's house and seeing the spores spray the ever logical, emotions kept in check Vulcan Spock, who seconds later embraced all those emotions he had kept bottled up. And, yes, I had to hold back a deluge of tears when Spock died in Wrath of Kahn (even if Star Trek has always been a bit campy -- but that is, of course, why I have, in part, always loved the original series the most)...

Rest in peace, Mr. Nimoy.

It's really unusual for me to compose an image this way-- with the rock so far up in the square, with more shoreline than sky in the composition. Yup. Why am I telling you this? I don't know. Why did I compose it this way? I don't know why-- only that I did and that it is unusual for me to do so. Why should you care? I don't know the answer to that either ... time for me to go back to grading student essays about Emerson and Thoreau and nature and solitude ...

PS that rock sure looks like a wizard hat ... don't you think?  Discuss among yourselves ...

suburban observations
The suburbs often feel somewhat soulless, even heartless, in spite of the fact that they often have, rather curiously, so many trees lining their streets and decorating the yards of their cookie cutter houses as if part of a lamely-conceived deception to fool us into thinking they are in harmony with the forces of nature. The suburbs are neither city, nor nature, but something acceptably unacceptable in-between the two, a stretch of occupied, built-upon land that encroaches on the city and bounds the edges of the countryside. These curious monotonies stem from such samenesses … such unoriginalities of design and order … as if everyone just gave up on the possibility of expressing anything unique or different or clever or challenging and just settled for what was easiest and quickest and most likely to receive little complaint from those who couldn't care less about suchthi... more »

The suburbs are neither city, nor nature, but something acceptably unacceptable in-between the two, a stretch of occupied, built-upon land that encroaches on the city and bounds the edges of the countryside. These curious monotonies stem from such samenesses … such unoriginalities of design and order … as if everyone just gave up on the possibility of expressing anything unique or different or clever or challenging and just settled for what was easiest and quickest and most likely to receive little complaint from those who couldn't care less about such things in the first place. This little series seeks to capture little slices of beauty among such repetitious ubiquities. I captured all of these images while walking around the suburban neighborhood I now live in. I used an infrared-converted camera; each image is approximately a one second to three second exposure. Some of the time, I let the movement from my fast gait sway the camera held in my hands, and at other times I intentionally swayed the camera to and fro and up and down and over and back– but always as I was walking. In other words, I wanted these observations to be recorded as part of the many walks I took while collecting this series, the walk taking me wherever it is that I was going and the observations simply caught along the way with no planning. For even in the plasticity of such designs, little silent slices of beauty dance often unnoticed.
