Izumi's Diary Page 73     Wednesday 6 March 2013  
         
         
Back to the Streets
 
         
     
 

Hello!

Here is Izumi walking along the footpaths of the streets again with my friend and comrade PEN, which is something perhaps that you thought I had forgotten how to do.

I could not blame you for such thoughts, as when I have been on the streets of late it has been with another camera or a different technique, or not even on the streets at all. But as I explained, these strategies were to try to winkle out the Decisive Moments which had seemed to become like one of those will o' the wisps that you have in the country parts of Australia and which can befuddle unwary travellers.

As I lay before you the results of our efforts you can see, I think, that this time there has been some success, with happy photographs if not definitive Decisive Moments.

I have wondered before whether the capture of Happy Photographs is dependent on seasonal or tidal or perhaps even lunar forces.

I may tell you that when some of my friends learn of the hours and conditions that I go out walking they would think the latter was the correct one.

Although I have been back walking the streets, I hope you will allow me to be deviant from time to time in the thinking that without contrasts you cannot have comparisons, and without comparisons you will have blandness.

And, while not being boastful, I can say that Izumi is not a bland girl!

So for now I say goodbye from your walking friend,

Izumi.
