my fight with photography

These photographs are not entirely my own work. My camera played a large part. And all the countless people who made the technology of photography possible. And all the visual artists whose work I've admired. Not to mention my long-time abstract antagonist, photography itself. However, where image ownership is concerned, these are mine. I'm happy for you to reblog, but please keep my credit and captions intact.

Thank you, Tony and The Photographers' Society!

Thank you, Tony, for those very kind words and for the reblog on TPS. Oddly enough, I woke up to yet more snow in the morning, and then saw the reblog. It made the shoveling that much easier!
Cheers,
Matthew

Love how you reminded me that things we were taught remind us of that person. I love this connection.

It’s quite a strong aspect of memory, I think. An octogenarian told me that every time she does arithmetic, she is transported more than 70 years back to her primary school and her teacher.

never saw a coffee maker like that before, what is that, how does it work?
It works quite well, Gerardo, but it’s all very manual. You put a round paper filter at the bottom of a cylinder. The filter is held in place by a sort of flat-bottomed plastic basket. You pour coffee grounds into the cylinder, then you add water at just the right temperature (you need to measure this). There’s a scale to tell you what to add. You stir for 10 seconds then push a piston into the top of the cylinder. The piston creates air pressure that forces the water through the grounds and the filter and into the mug or beaker (I forgot to mention the mug or beaker, didn’t I?), which you placed under the whole apparatus.
It makes the coffee strong, like espresso, but you can add hot water or milk afterwards. The trade name of the coffee maker is AeroPress. 
Cheers all,
Matthew
