for the Purist.

yes, it's been a while. yes, this little project actually took on a life of its own.

yes, it's a 160 page .pdf.

and, yes, i'd like to thank some people for their collaboration, contribution and encouragement ...

i think my document is richer because of the involvement of the aforementioned.

definitely.

i'm sure it could use an edit. what-the-fuck-ever.

i'm tired of looking at it.

it's as good as it's going to get given what i've got goin' on.

it's convoluted.

there are no chapters.

there are asides.

snarky comments.

it's a leica-slash-rangefinder lovefest.

all that.

but ... in the end .. this document ... besides the forewards by some of my dA-friends ... it's me.

raw.

unapologetic.

ya' know.

maybe you don't.

it was written with a certain audience in mind ... and the members of that audience know me...

so ...

i hope it helps in your quest for the evolution of the moment ...

not the decisive one ...

just the evolution ...

and ...

remember ...

take your camera and film everywhere.

be the photo geek.

it's all good!

let me know what you think. good or bad.

tutto friggin' bene!

It is really beautiful. And the contrast between the loving couple and the lonely person is great; it gives you the feeling of both sides and somehow you feel happy for the couple but sad for the other person. However, as the other person is reading, in a way, it gives you the feeling that he may not be alone because through reading he is in connection with others and therefore not alone. On the other hand, he does not seems to be desperate so he may be waiting for someone to come.

THe picture allows to give several interpretations and I think that's great!

It is very interesting. But less flaming and rambling about other people would have made this even more valuable and nicer to read. It formed a very unpleasant opinion of your character while reading, and I think if you put so much love in a project, you should try and focus on the content, and not the rage against other opinions.
