Digital Photography and retirement have reignited a love of taking and making pictures. I've never felt a need to share before - but ease of computer access on Flickr seems to make it so convenient .... why not try? (Although I'm still daunted by the stunning quality of so many images posted here, day by day.)

 

I've always believed in encouraging people in their efforts by praising them, and that surely happens on Flickr - and it still feels good - giving and receiving, and above all learning from the example of the many excellent photographers.

Eye de-light -- a bit of Nonsense---

 

What is my photo style?

It's a question I never dreamed of asking: I see what I like and press the button.

So when someone called me a peddler of "Eye Candy", obviously meant in a derogatory way, I thought-Yes - that's a label I'll wear with pride.

But hold on - Candy? Did I want to be associated with something that should be taken in small quantities, and is probably bad for you?

So I cast around for an alternative. Eye Pleasuring? Eye Nourishment? Eye ....? And then Eye Delight occurred and it has grown on me.

First, "Delightful" is a term I often use as high approbation. To delight the eye seems a thoroughly good reason to take photographs.

Then it includes "light", which is crucial to my motivation in taking pics. "De" in local dialect is often used as "of", (rather like in French?).

And deeper still when spoken it can be taken for "I delight" - which is what I experience when taking photos, and is certainly my purpose as in - "I hope I delight some who view my photos".

So there we are. I've found my photo style: Eye de-light. I hope you agree that my pics go towards that.

I have seen algo's pictures for years now and it just keeps getting better and better. The colors, the texture and the composition knocks me out every time. Take the time to look through an amazing collection. You won't be sorry.

Alex is a fine person, a gentleman, one of those very special human beings we are privileged to meet once in a while. I wanted to write this Testimonial much earlier, as I have been an admirer of Alex´s work for quite a while now. Let us say, for the last 4 years. However I hesitated because of language barrier and he deserves that only the best is written about him. However I decided not to be silent anymore and I am sure that Alex will forgive a few mistakes that I might do, as English is not my mother tongue. I love his photostream, his beautiful England, of amazing landscapes and foggy, mysterious, atmospheric sceneries, which are so charming to me. I love his flowers, his colours, I love the way he sees and pictures just every beauty surrounding him. Besides, he has a most wonderful Set, showing the most amazing work on hands. It has been a pleasure to visit your stream, Alex and I thank you for many moments of delight, while exploring your special art. Petra:))

The colors are vibrant, the subjects are diverse, the compositions are inspiring. The only thing that all of Algo's photos share in common is that they make you say "wow". No other single word can describe the consistently high quality of the photos he's taken over the years and continues to take.

Alex, you are one of the kindest, warmest and most genuine people I have met on flickr. You are sitting very close to God and you see the world with an eyesight coming pretty close to HIS look upon his creation... And you were obviously not far from HIM when HE did have a bit of spare time to work out the Beauty of the World! :) Long may you delight us with your art! THANK YOU.

Since then I have enjoyed the challenges he has put before us. For this I thank you Alex.

Came to look at one picture, got well and truely hooked in to the high quality and interest of the pictures all around, so much to see and learn from. "Eye delight" indeed, we're spoiled by these galleries. A credit to the Flickr community, I hope I can produce work as good as this sometime!

October 30, 2006

Some of the most beautiful and amazing photos are to be seen on this excellent photostream. Everyone will be able to learn to take better photographs after viewing these sets. An inspirational Photographer who shares his wit and wisdom with other flickr users.

Algo is a treasure himself. Not only are his photo works consistently among the best I have ever viewed, but his desire to nurture those of us who have recently stepped into this realm more appreciated than he can possibly imagine. His heart must be as warm and artistic as his talent. Thanks, Alex.

August 14, 2006

What has nature been up to? This seems to be a question constantly on algo's mind. Whether it's sunbeams, raspberries, or harvesting fields, every aspect has a story to tell. And algo is able to capture it beautifully.

We are all individuals in this world, with different opinions, tastes, and perspectives. You choose to show us the beauty of this world; there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. (If the other photographer chooses to focus on other goals, that's fine... Each of us photographers is free to do as he/she pleases....) ...And your photographs are a joy to look at. Your ample technical abilities aside, you choose a variety of subjects, many of them common everyday things, and present them in intriguing and beautiful ways. Your descriptions and background information only add to the enjoyment of your photos. It is clear that you love what you are doing, and love sharing your creations with others. I look forward to seeing your wonderful photos on Flickr for a long time to come! :)

I really admired his ability for compossing an image. Every photo seems to be spontaneous, but if you look at it thoroughly you´ll notice every detail is studied. For since, his photostream is a indispensable daily visit. Thanks for everything I´ve learned from you, my friend!
