The continuing visual journey
Over four years ago, I wrote a post titled To the lighthouse and butchered Virginia Woolf in the process. I feel kind of badly about that (the butchering part), but re-reading that post made me thoughtful about a recent excursion to another lighthouse. Yes, I know, lighthouses feature regularly in my work.
What happen this time is that I made one photo of the lighthouse, as I had planned. Yet, instead of making more images of the lighthouse, from various angles, I moved on to other, more-interesting-to-me-now subjects.
Reviewing that old post and examining my new journey to the lighthouse, I realized that what I see and how I see has been changing. In part, this is intentional and it makes me happy to see growth and exploration over the last four years. I’m encouraged that I am trying new things. I am also hopeful that this will continue, so that photography continues to be enjoyable and the great journey it has been for me so far.
So unlike my conclusion four years ago, I’m happy to report that I will continue to explore new ways of seeing and making photographs. And, I will continue to visit lighthouses. I just might come away with different images.
NB: All images captured with the Fujifilm GFX 50S, fronted with the GF100-200mm f/5.6 lens.

I love your work: sparse and neatly contrasted, beautiful in its simplicity.
Thanks for your kind comments Karine! After looking at your work, I can see we enjoy a similar aesthetic. I will look for more from you in the future…
Very nice photographs! You inspire me to find new ways of seeing!!!
Thanks Robin. It’s important that we all keep looking for new ways of seeing and hopefully we see new things.
Some nice pics there. I’d love to see a raw file of one of your pics to see how the GFX works out. DropBox?
Kevin, I will try to get to that this weekend. Will email you a link.
