I fell in love with photography in 68-69 when i was living in Berkeley. Purchased a 35mm at a pawn shop for $12.00 and never looked back.
I hope that when people look at my photos you will not just compliment my work, but give me "constructive criticism". It's how i learn, one thing about photography i have come to realize is, it never ends, there is no "perfect shot" and i can always have done it differently.
That is the beauty and the beast and my love for it and sharing the experience with like minded people is truly icing on the spaghetti !!

Thanks for your comment Raul but, notice that in the foreground the Flower Stems are vertical suggesting that the background is on a slope!

Raul...could you be the same person that was my jr. prom a notion to look up old friends who impacted my junior years and you were one of them...maybe? If so, I'd love to hear where life has taken you. Louise Jewell, lower merion, ocean city, the park by merion station, etc. and I'm on facebook.

Nikolaus Benz, 13.04.2009 at 19:19h

Hi Raul!
I hope that you are well.
Today I was visiting an animal farm in the Cotswold’s in England where I came across the following text about the Horse. I thought you would be interested in this.
Best wishes,
Nikolaus Benz

The Horse
Where in this wide world can man find nobility without pride, friendship without envy or beauty without vanity?
Here where grace is laced with muscle, and strength by gentleness confined.
He serves without servility; he has fought without enmity.
There is nothing so powerful. Nothing less violent. There is nothing so quick. Nothing more patient.
England’s past has been borne on his back.
All our history is his industry,
we are his heirs, he is our inheritance

Written for the horse of the Year Show by Ronald Duncan

Hello Raul, thanks for your comment on "Fly No More.
Yes, the fly really does add something. I took four very close shots and he never seemed to notice me.
I had planned on doing a daily series of the birds progression as he decomposed, but the next day he was gone.

Hi, thanks for the comment re: House with Vines, Lovran.
I walked past that house with a large group of people and it just looked so beautiful to me - I knew there was potential for a nice photograph. Oddly, no one else in the group showed the slightest interest. Glad you enjoyed it.
I did reach my friends from the boat recently. Sadly, the boat is no more (sank) but I've re-established contact with my old friends. This fotocommunity thing is working out!

Nikolaus Benz, 11.06.2008 at 1:38h

Hi Raul,

Thanks for your comment.
I can sympathise with your view on the title of my photograph but I would also comment that perhaps man should not ride horses or should not have used horses as beasts of labour. I believe that all of these activities result in a degree of stress and pain to the animal. Where would mankind be today if it were not for the horse? The same of course also goes today for all other domesticated animals exploited for our purpose. Realistically, for all of these activities man has to be the “Master”!
