Ok, What is it?

What is it with me and these big square black and white pictures? Lately, it seems like I’ve been on a big square kick. I just can’t help myself! Everything I look at, I start to think, “Hmmm. That would look good square. And maybe even in black and white….” Somebody help me! Make it stop. Make it go away. Please?!?!

Do you ever have kicks like this? Do you ever find yourself doing the same thing day in and day out and wondering, stopping to wonder, is it really the right thing to do? I mean, what am I missing my Hassy so bad or what is going on? I never really liked all that 6×6 crap back in the days of film all that much anyway, why, oh why, is it coming back to haunt me now? What have I done to deserve this?

I really think I’m loosing it. Seriously. Like something has snapped. A screw has gone loose. Can you hear it too? Jingle jangle. SNAP crackle pop, there it goes!

(Maybe that’s just the sound of them breaking ground on the new Formula 1 track, over which I’m completely EXCITED. In case, you know, you could not tell.)

Now, somebody please, make all this black and white and square all over stuff stop.

Sign me, “trapped in a squircle” today.

Until next time…

    I came by a Holga I never used even once, but simply liked to look at it on my shelf. I sold it to a guy who was excited about it. I am not a photographer, but like to see what people do with this medium. Today I visited with my son who had developed some film he had shot in Tokyo with a Diana…. I am totally naive about all this, but the square format lends itself to CD packaging, or vinyl retro. I am over my head here, so I will quit.

    I love Dianas. They are very cool indeed. Lovely cameras.

    Square is an easier compositional format too-fewer decisions, less to think about. Easy to fit a portrait in a box-round head makes for easy composition into a square hole.
