All photography, all sepia, or black and white.
All photographs will have appropriate links to their owners, or attribution included in text. Any with no indication as to authorship, are my own work.
My name is Leonard Adams, I am 60 years old. Quite old in comparison to most tumblrs. What I lack in youth, I make up for in curiosity.
The images I offer here are presented as large as possible, that one has a sense of their size in relation to the world around us. Seeing as a dog would, we can get a sense of our own insignificance. That, and a healthy dose of humility would do us all some good.
“It’s not for the door to decide which way to swing”
Second posting, not a duplication of accidental nature. There’s hints in the larger image for an answer to the question; ‘Which direction are they going?’ Can you tell which?
I’ll post the correct answer after the big ‘tumblr overhaul’ tomorrow.
Now, how’s that for a shameless hook? Not to mention a cheap shot at getting the photo looked at more closely.
Am I terrible, or what?
This image has recently seen a lot of activity in likes and reblogs. Originally posted Oct. 06 2012, someone picked it up from my archives and reblogged it. I want to thank them for that. I think this is due in part to the easier to use format of the archives here on tumblr, but I appreciate the flurry of activity for an image that’s one of my favorites.
I haven’t ever claimed to be anything of an artist, I just like making images that are comfortable to see, or suggest a story, elicit a feeling, or maybe are just plain pretty.
The response to some of my stuff warms my heart… Thank you all.
Boy, those Episcopals really know how to party!
St. John’s Cathedral in Spokane Washington.
An earlier work in my digital experience. I hadn’t taken many photographs for many years before this, and then analogue was my format. I think I’ve come a long way since then. A large part of my progress is due to the inspiration and encouragement I have found here on tumblr. Many of the techniques I use today are a result of observation of other tumblr photographers. Thank you all for the education.
This is from a visit to my hometown. This church boasts one of the largest pipe organs in use today. It has 4094 pipes, and I can attest, that the sound is immense. History of the cathedral can be found at; http://www.discovery-school.org/cathedral.html
I processed this in color originally, because the colors were so subtle, and delightful, but just for here, I’ve rendered it in daguerreotype. I like the color version best, which is odd, as I usually prefer black and white, or a sepia of some sort.
