I went for a run around the park.

Then I saw these guys.

Now I gotta run around again.

I thought I had bean there before.

Turns out I hadn’t.

I went tomato red in embarrassment.

They told me to keep a lid on it.

I puffed up a bit at that.

The trick to treating.

Halloween may have passed, but my exterior table decorating capabilities live on.

How fruitful.

You say buckwheat, I say buck the trend.

And so, October concludes my homage to the great Henri Cartier Bresson.

I felt compelled to honour his memory and incredibly evocative quotes.

It was a nostalgic trip down travel photography lane, reliving my sojourns through: China, Africa, Greek Islands, New Zealand and parts of Australia.

This month I am practising my food photography.

In most instances I will have made the dish (as in now). In others, it’ll be from a great place a good foodie would go to.

Hope your capturing your visions,

Leona

“The intensive use of photographs by mass media lays ever fresh responsibilities upon the photographer. We have to acknowledge the existence of a chasm between the economic needs of our consumer society and the requirements of those who bear witness to this epoch. This affects us all, particularly the younger generations of photographers. We must take greater care than ever not to allow ourselves to be separated from the real world and from humanity.”

Henri Cartier-Bresson

“We must avoid however, snapping away, shooting quickly and without thought, overloading ourselves with unnecessary images that clutter our memory and diminish the clarity of the whole.”

Henri Cartier-Bresson

Keep going, the illusion is in your mind.

“It is an illusion that photos are made with the camera… they are made with the eye, heart and head.”

Henri Cartier-Bresson

Why dip your toe in? Just dive in.

“This recognition, in real life, of a rhythm of surfaces, lines, and values is for me the essence of photography; composition should be a constant of preoccupation, being a simultaneous coalition – an organic coordination of visual elements.” –

Henri Cartier-Bresson

Take the road less travelled.

“Your eye must see a composition or an expression that life itself offers you, and you must know with intuition when to click the camera.”
