We will turn the page again tonight. Another year has gone by. I have had my share of setbacks and advances. Photographically, this year has marked a change of my approach, to a more thoughtful and organized one. Next year, should permit me to put some order in my archive and construct a portfolio. I have outgrown Flickr, and I prefer to stick to my own space for a more methodical showcasing of what I do.
Time is something very difficult to define, yet we all know how it governs our lives. It also governs our photography. As a farewell image of the year, I wanted to show something that sets free our imagination – a cruise ship homing in to Monte Carlo harbour. I believe most of us like to think about a sea voyage as something relaxing and liberating.
The next image has been taken with the lens fully stopped down, what has extended the exposure time 16 fold. Suddenly, everything appears more abstract, and the passage of time becomes the dominant theme.
I wish you all a fruitful 2014.
