New Places & Subjects

Almost a year ago I wrote of accidentally discovering Dominick Gravel’s photo-blog during one of my aimless middle of the night surfing safaris. What a treat…

And so it was that I discovered the photos of Dominick Gravel early Monday morning when I couldn’t sleep.

I’d say I “wasted” two hours at his website and blog, because I should have been sleeping so I could be human for work in the morning, but I couldn’t stop. Mr. Gravel’s photos took me around the world and every one of them was more than art. Playing lot cricket in India, school girls in Japan, riding bicycles in Nepal, a smile from the Dalai Lama, speeding across the plains of Tanzania, an alleyway in Hong Kong, releasing a captured bear somewhere. Who is this guy?

… from BFP’s We discover Dominick Gravel’s blog – a creative feast for eyes and imagination

Last night I found that Mr. Gravel has posted many new and fabulous photos of Vietnam, Korea, Paris and Australia, and more people, people, people!

Have a look at Dominick Gravel’s DKGphoto.com and his info website, but I warn you… be prepared to blow at least an hour. Well worth your time.

Cricket India Barbados

Cricket, anyone?

You know how it is surfing aimlessly on the web… you are reading something about Bristol Centaurus sleeve-valve engines and then about three clicks later you are someplace you never intended to go. Sometimes it is a treat, sometimes not – but it is all part of the adventure and fun of surfing.

The photos draw you in. You are immersed in the colours, the stories, the action, the moment or the look in the subject’s eyes. I know that I could never do what he does no matter what training you give me. I have great equipment. Mr. Gavel has talent… No contest.
