Outlooking v1. I saw my friend/ex-coworker today. We had a good chat and we ate our lunch heartily. It was a hot day, and by the time we parted around 2.30pm, I jetted to a Barnes & Noble nearest him to look for this particular photo magazine named Silvershotz. May issue. They didn't have it anymore. Dratz. It featured one of my favorite photographer named Michael Levin. His photographs are divine. I bought his book Zebrato the other day online and it'll be arriving tomorrow. I don't usually buy books by any particular photographer but this one I cannot wait. I wrote him an email earlier this week... told him about me getting his book and also asked him a couple of minor questions regarding his techniques, etc. I also told him that he needn't disclose any of the information and that I would wholeheartedly understand. He responded late last night and I was thrilled to get a reply back. I was so moved. He sent me a PDF on an article which he talked about his book, a bit about his background and some of his techniques. It was, why yes, featured in this May issue of Silvershotz.
Anyway, I didn't take any photos today. I thought I had more time, but it was pretty late already when I got home, with traffic and all. This photo was, again, from our trip to Oregon. It's Alec... staring outlooking. It adds a bit of mystery wondering what he's looking at, or why he was standing there. Here's the full version. I hope to get back on taking photos tomorrow. Crossing my fingers.
Looking at Michael's photographs can literally bring me to tears... I'm so moved. And sometimes, there are simply no words.
