Foggy Tree Line by Louis Dallara

Foggy Tree Line by Louis Dallara

Photographing fog started to interest me again as one of my favorite subjects. Included in this composition is “trees”. Fogs stops are vision of various things and creates a sense of mystery that we have to trust are mind that the rest of the physical world is still there.
I wonder what Ansel Adams would think of this image. I hope he would like it.

Selling Artwork on the Street

Selling Artwork on the Street

Selling on the street is a good way to find out what people think of your work, and it’s free too. I found it to be a great experience to do street photography with real humans.

Here’s a collection of my First Friday hungry street photography. Street photography at its essence means candid photography of people and humanity. A street photograph has to be a real, unposed moment.

$45 M. van Gogh Painting Made During Asylum Confinement to Sell at Christie’s
February 25, 2022 1:14pm

Landscape painting
Vincent van Gogh, Champs près des Alpilles', 1889.
Christie's

Vincent van Gogh’s painting Fields near the Alpilles (1889), which the artist produced while he was committed to a French asylum, is coming to auction for the first time next month. It is expected to fetch a price around $45 million when it hits the auction block during a 20th century art evening sale this May in New York.

This landscape has remained in private hands since it was created and has never been exhibited publicly. It was previously owned by the designer Yves Saint Laurent and his partner Pierre Bergé, who sold it around 2003 to a private Europe collector. It changed hands once more time since then, and has been owned by its current seller ever since.

Van Gogh made the work outside the entrance of an asylum located near the Saint-Rémy-de-Provence in Southern France, where he was treated for a year after a series of breakdowns that led to him severing his own ear. He described the present work in letters to his brother Theo while recovering from the episode, only being allowed on occasion to paint in the outside terrain surrounding the institution. A similar countryside scene resides at the Kröller-Müller Museum.

In a statement, Vanessa Fusco, Christie’s co-head of the New York 20th century evening sale, described Fields near the Alpilles as being “inextricably linked to Vincent’s own tragic biography.”

The artist gifted Fields near the Alpilles and other works to Joseph Roulin, a postman with whom the he had become friends while living in Arles. Roulin held onto the work until 1900, when he sold it to a French dealer.

Fields near the Alpilles is currently on display at Christie’s London headquarters until March 1. The painting will then go on tour to the auction house’s outposts in Taipei and Hong Kong, before returning to New York, where it will be on view to the public before heading to sale on May 11.

Spring Is coming

February 13th, 2022

Spring Is coming

We had snow today, and I hope it’s the last I have outside projects to do. I have no car and need to fix mind, it has a blown head gasket. A difficult repair on an Asian card. They don't make it easy to repair, I think they want me to buy a new one.
I can't wait for pay day on FAA.
Cheers Lou

Some days you feel a little ducky

On my walkabout I was carrying my brick i.e. Camera Bag to improve my health and vitality, found some interesting Mallard ducks and decided to photograph them. The location is close to my home in Mount Laurel, New Jersey.

I love the color of the male Mallards, they are so beautiful and vibrant. They didn’t seem to mind my present and were busy to gather food. Another fascinating point is that they use the ice to stand on, and the cold doesn’t bother their feet.

Cool Cape May NJ

Cape May has been on my mind lately, my old home town from the olden days, like Lower Cape May regional class of 1962 days olden days.?

Cape May distinguishes herself in many ways. We have the pristine beaches, promenade, and all the amenities that make any seashore town worth visiting, but we also have a rich history and an architectural diversity equal to none.

I love the street, Street photography is not for everyone. One needs to study the craft before one goes out on the street.
