  4. I love the quote you have on your blog. It’s very true, photography does deal with appearances, which deceive a lot. This is why I like paintings, however, because they can include whatever character trait is actually present, and all the accumulated observations over a very long period of time while painting the portrait. However, this can also be a way to deceive and create a false appearance. Anyway, great photos!

    • You know, I’ve always been blown away by how long some of the masters spent on certain works, particularly portraits.

    The inscription on the gate is Chinese. It translates roughly as “inviting happiness gate,” read from right to left.

  8. Wow! And all these photos are shot with film???? Amazing! I love film too but, I don’t have the patience for it! LOL! Great shots!

    • Yes, all film. Patience is exactly what you need if you shoot film. I can’t tell you how painful waiting for my film to come back from the lab is. Plus I scan all my own stuff (with a crappy flatbed), and that requires even more patience. Not for the weary, I assure you.
