In 1976, I discovered the work of Henri Cartier-Bresson and his cohorts at the Magnum Agency in Paris. Awestruck by the simple perfection and emotional impact of those black and white photographs, I bought a Leica rangefinder and set out to frame a few “decisive moments” of my own. A couple hundred rolls of Tri-X later, I had a handful of decent prints. The masters make it look so easy don’t they? But I never gave up and my passion for monochrome has yet to ebb. At the turn of the century, I embraced digital photography almost immediately (instant gratification and freedom from nasty chemicals), but the new medium has steered me down an unexpected side street…colour. I’ve been tinkering with it some, but it seems to be a lot like playing the ukulele: Easy to do at a modest level but tough to do really well. I’m game though. So I’m taking on the self-assignment of posting one week’s worth of colour pictures, the best I can come up with. The goal is seven images that work in colour, are about colour, celebrate colour. Wish me luck!
