i told her photographic images could only speak the truth

and as concocted as that might be, she believed it.

we’re fools whether we dance or not, so we might as well dance.

as they say, there’s dancing and then there’s dancing.

All Dubbed Out and ready to Go

as promised earlier, Fly Tying: A Complete Dubbing Techniques Tutorial is back and running as before.
all images are i believe, where they should be… and Dennis Shaw’s fantastico-ultimate dubbing reference is back, available for all to see, use and learn from.

whew… to be honest, it was a royal pain in the butt because, ehh, it’s not worth going into technical details but i’m glad it’s over and i can move on to simpler and less butt-paining things such as heading back to Special Stream to drink in its beauty. enjoy !

keeping busy

five weeks without adding a single post here, i believe that’s a record for TLC but as the title suggests this lame blogger hasn’t just wilted off and died, i’ve just been busy doing other things, enjoying the break all the while thinking of TLC’s evolution.

among them, i’ve retrieved the three hundred or so sorely missing images that belong in the Fly Tying- A Complete Dubbing Techniques Tutorial reference article.
if it was just a matter of slapping on the images life would be easy but i need to insert them in their correct context and the files aren’t numbered in order and i have no valid reference as the complete article wasn’t copied for any future maintenance…
it’ll happen. can’t say when but it will.

secondly, there will be two new sections under the header:
– photography tips and tricks, equipment for fishing/outdoors imagery along with insights and other imagery blabberings.
– and a generalised ‘stuff we carry’ section. i’m trying to stay away from the EDC/Every Day Carry nomenclature as it’s typically associated to more or less just pocket knives, watches, lamps, etc  (i’ll of course talk about knives as i’m a knife geek !) but with a focus on outdoors/fisher people’s needs. FF-EDC ? we’ll see.

back to today’s post title, i like how these two images keep the eyes busy.
there’s no specific ‘focal point’ in either, my eyes keep going randomly everywhere within the frames, its sort of trance-like ! i hope you’ll enjoy, it’s good to keep busy.

oblivion is bliss

the word’s origin is Latin: oblivio(n-) > from oblivisci, to ‘forget’.
or as in my case; as in forgetting or rather putting aside temporarily the idea that this started off as a fishing trip but the rod never managed to get out of the car. blissful, truely blissful.

peekaboo !

tip-
the best way to find these creepy creepies is to sit down and wait till you see something that isn’t supposed to, smile. the shiny teeth give them away every single time.

summer break’s over, it’s good to be back !

this nameless toadstool was hiding out on top of a log that had fallen, suspended over a wee brook i recently discovered in la Montagne Noire in Aude, France. it’s a gorgeous area that draws me back, the kind of order i’ll mindlessly obey.

light levels where very low, combine that with my super-wide angle 7.5mm 180° lens that has its own particular sense of colour rendition/image resolution, the image distortion expected from this type of lens and we get this lovely fungi in a somewhat painterly interpretation.

the pink and purple hues are as close to what my mind’s eye remembers: absolutely stunning.

the best fisher ever.

sometimes it happens in a pub, sometimes it happens streamside. i guess it could happen anywhere where two or more anglers might chat but regardless, at some point in our fishing lives we’ve all heard the “who’s the best fisher in your opinion?” question.
my answer is invariably, this guy. he’s not a competition angler, isn’t Orvis nor Anyone endorsed, in fact he’s not in the least bit interested in praises nor endorsements. i like that.

i know, i’m not much of the conversationalist when it comes to subjects like this…
