Why am I still the clown? by liferover Why am I still the clown? by liferover
Ibiza. This nice old guy was a street animator, very energic, very very funny. He would make, every single day, the crowd burst into laughter... But under his joyful cover, one wonders what tricks had life played to put him in that street, every night, doing the same thing, just to make a few coins.

I just opened a new club devoted to Contemporary Art photography. I think this piece would perfectly fit into it, so I hope you're intersted to join: *fineart-photography - I hope you'll have a look at it! :)

Hi! I visited your club, and I think you overvalued my photo... It is little more than a snapshot with some elementary considerations on technique, and it is actually a little bit blurred (flash would have it ruined) :)

I'll keep an eye on it, but I really don't believe I can contribute... Photography is a vast world, and I tend to appreciate the side that uses photos to transmit a message, rather than being an end on itself (roughly what is called photojournalism, though I see it in a broader way).

Anyway, glad you passed by, and I do wish you luck on that project, it is most needed in this overfilled-with-litter heaven that is dA :)

I think you're very modest. And sometimes it doesn't matter if something is 100% in focus if everything else is perfect, the moment, the mood, the character depicted. :)

Oh.. que foto!! :|
Nunca vi nenhum palhaço assim. Sabes, nunca gostei de pallaços, metem-me nojo com as palhaçadas fingidas, a arrogancia dos narizes vermelhos.... eu sei que não é bem assim, mas para mim é o que eles representam desde que me lembro de ser pessoa, foi um embirranço meio irracional.
Mas este aqui... não é um palhaço, é um farrapo. É um bocado de ser humano que quase pede desculpas por existir, que se esconde atrás daquele nariz vermelho na esperança que ninguém repare nele, que só reparem no vermelho, no brilho do fato, na macacada.
Está tão triste, faz pena... com aquela pele repuxada, o brilho metálico e frio do brinco na orelha, como se ele estivesse já quase morto, sofrido.

São comentários como esse que dão valor à foto... O que realmente gosto na fotografia é a possibilidade de capturar aquele pedacinho de realidade que normalmente não vemos, ou porque não prestamos atenção, ou simplesmente de tão fugaz que é... A tua resposta assegurou-me que há mais nesta foto do que simples estética - trespassa sentimento, significado!

Muito obrigado pelo teu comentário :) e obrigado pelo :+fav:!

A cor está um pouco editada, a original tinha os tons mt quentes (fraco WB), não se adequavam à mensagem da foto... espero que não retire valor à imagem :D

I like your comments, because they give sence to photos. What's more, your photos have soul because of the stories you write - and that's why photos are pieces of a real art ... :)
