The Father of Photography according to John Werge (1890).

“Charles William Scheele was born at Stralsund, Sweden, December 19th, 1742, and died at Koeping, on lake Moeler, May 21st, 1786. He was the real father of photography, for he produced the first photographic picture on record without camera and without lens, with the same chemical compound and the same beautiful and wonderful combination of natural colours which we now employ. Little did he dream what was to follow.”

(Source: The Evolution of Photography, 1854-1890, by John Werge, Published in 1890.)

About the Abstract Expressionism Photography Series:

Anyone who follows my work will know that Jackson Pollock is my main artistic influence. Thus, my Abstract Expressionism Photography artworks are in the fashion of All-Over Painting (at least many of them are), and my works are full of chaos, action, dynamic colours, and design.

I love to see what I can do with the interplay of colour and design. This series is more about chaos than order. It has no boundaries and I don’t pay much attention to rules. I work on a piece until I see that the artwork tells me, “We are Done.”

Technology seems to be hassling me again…..Vivien !!!

If you are familiar with “The Young Ones”, then you may remember the episode where Neil is being hassled by technology!

Well, Vivien, Technology is hassling me too!

I tried to call up my blog….in two different browsers, and I get error pages.

GREAT!

I’M SURE, this too will pass. Nevertheless, why is it when I want to do something (with technology), it finds a need to hassle me?!?

Oh well………

AND……

NOW, I’m having trouble publishing this post…..SERIOUSLY…..GREAT!!!

OK….Positive Nawfal, trying to reason with the WP Gremlins.

So….how’s that working for me? Let’s see….hit the Publish button again….and….

Great! Positive Nawfal…..it isn’t working.

Would someone please get WordPress some WD40!

Does anyone use Flickr anymore, I mean, Do You Want to download Your Photos from Flickr before they delete them? Here’s how!

Yeah, so Flickr has gone all Crazoid on us who have been members there for years and years.

Flickr, under new management, apparently, has changed its membership options and are basically saying they limit free accounts to 1,000 images, or, they will delete your extra images, or something like that, basically forcing people to pay for a “Pro” Membership.

But Who Cares?!?

At least I don’t. I lost interest in Flickr a LONG TIME AGO!

There is no point for me to load my photos to Flickr. There is no financial prospects for Photographers who work at Photography as part of their livelihood, to waste time and $ with Flickr. That is my opinion.

I would rather load up my images at any number of other sites where there are options to sell my images: EyeEm or PicFair as examples.


However, if you want to keep your photos you spent time uploading to Flickr over these many years, here is how to request a Zip File of your photos.

Download an Entire Album

  1. Mouse over You | select Albums.
  2. Mouse over or open an album.
  3. Click the Download icon .
  4. Click Create zip file.
  5. Wait for the FlickrMail notification that your zip file is ready.
  6. Open the FlickrMail message and click the hyperlink to download it

Download all your Photos

If you’d like to download all of your photos and videos at once, you can request a .zip file of all your data.

  1. Go to your Flickr account settings.
  2. Navigate to the “Your Flickr Data” section on the bottom right-hand side.
  3. Click on the “Request My Flickr Data” button.
  4. Once we’ve finished compiling your data, you’ll receive an email with a link to download the .zip file.

That’s it. I will probably request to download all my photos and then forget about Flickr completely as it is not relevant to me anymore.

ABSTRACT EXPRESSIONISM PHOTOGRAPHY Series:

I have over 85 Photography Series. I consider myself an Abstract Expressionism Photographist, and I have photographed in this style for 20 or more years. Believe it or not, up until just recently (mid-2018), I had not created an Abstract Expressionism Photography Series—In a way, that seems completely ludicrous to me!

Typically, all of my Abstract Expressionism photographic artworks have been designed for other photography series, so I guess I never thought there was a need for a photo series called, “Abstract Expressionism Photography”.

However, with my work titled, “Descent into Tartarus” (2018), I had no collections that were specifically appropriate for that artwork. And after searching my many series, I could not find one titled, Abstract Expressionism Photography! Therefore, that is how this series came into existence. It was a process of discovery: I discovered that I needed an “Abstract Expressionism Photography” series.

Anyone who follows my work will know that Jackson Pollock is my main artistic influence. Thus, my Abstract Expressionism Photography artworks are in the fashion of All-Over Painting, and my works are full of chaos, action, dynamic colours, and design.

No, No Really, you are WAY TOO ABSTRACT for Us!

Well, there it is folks, I have another photograph in the GETTY IMAGES Collection! Amazing isn’t it.

My GettyImages Link:

NAWFAL @ GETTY IMAGES


LONG AGO…

I approached Getty Images and Corbis, and both told me that my photography was too ABSTRACT for them.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m happy that some of my photographs are appreciated by Getty Images and that they have approved of them for their collection. That is great.

I guess at least some of their photo editors appreciate Abstract Photography now. That is commendable and good for me.

Nevertheless, for such a long time, Getty Images, Corbis, and others, would not touch my abstract work with a ten foot pole, but now the mood must have changed.

I’ve always been very abstract and that is me.

It is good that these Premiere Stock Photography Agencies are appreciating some abstract work now.

I am Quite Certain that I am Stuck in the “WordPress Sine-Wave-Like Subscribe-Unsubscribe Do-Until-Loop”!

Yes, there is no doubt about it anymore, folks—I am quite certain, without a doubt, that I have mysteriously gotten myself stuck in some sort of WordPress-Hell-Dimension, better known as the “WordPress Sine-Wave-Like Subscribe-Unsubscribe Do-Until-Loop”.

Why do I suspect such a thing?

EVIDENCE PEOPLE! Evidence.


Anyone here, among the few, but the loyal readers of my ever-looping sine-wave-like blog subscription, blog, who does not know what a “Do-Until-Loop” is?

It is an old computer programming term. Anyway, if not, here is the definition, but translate that into the “Do-Loop” taking control of my Realty-Matrix-Like existence.


A high-level programming language structure that repeats instructions based on the results of a comparison. In a DO WHILE loop, the instructions within the loop are performed if the comparison is true. In a DO UNTIL loop, the instructions are bypassed if the comparison is true.

Source : http://www.yourdictionary.com/do-loop


And, what is my “Do-Loop”, or, my “Do-Until Loop”?

The problem is that Bumstead (“Bumstead” refers to me for this post) is always just under, or just over, 1600 subscribers: When Bumstead gets 1600 Followers, here is the natural course of things:

⊙ DO Add One to the count of Subscribers UNTIL the Count is Equal To 1607, and then, when the Count Equals 1607, DO Subtract One from the Subscribers UNTIL the Subscribers Equals 1595, and then, DO Add One to the Subscribers UNTIL Subscribers Equal 1607, and then,…

And…Ad Infinitum…

Or, Until Bumstead goes Crazy-ape-Bonkers, and simply stops blogging and caring about such things.


Is 1600 one of those Satanic Illuminati Numbers?

I don’t think 1600 is a “Dark Forces” number. However, maybe it is my “Dark Forces” number.

I don’t think that my 1600, give or take 5 or 7 subscribers, are conspiring against me….Or, are they? Hummmmmmm…

Maybe they all communicate and keep tabs on my Subscriptions Number, and when they see my number goes down to 1595, they communicate with the group, and those who unsubscribed recently, re-subscribe to get my numbers just over 1600. When they notice my number of subscribers hitting 1607, they quickly communicate with each other, and some 7, or 12 subscribers slowly unsubscribe to gradually get my subscribers’ number down below 1600 again.

Could be…


THIS SINE-WAVE SUBSCRIPTION NUMBER TREND HAS BEEN GOING ON FOR OVER A FULL YEAR! AND—I’M BLOODY WELL FED UP WITH IT!

Is my Photography and Art Blog so Damned Excruciatingly Horrifically Terrible, that people would actually make it a point AND spend valuable time to unsubscribe? SERIOUSLY….IS IT!?!

For me, if I subscribe to blogs that I actually don’t visit, I just let it be. I don’t waste my time keeping track of blogs I DON’T visit—I keep track of the blogs I want to visit on a regular basis. It hurts me not, to continue subscribing to blogs I don’t visit…I don’t intentionally unsubscribe to blogs unless if the blog suddenly publishes hurtful, harmful, or morally reprehensible content.

THUS:

I do not publish hurtful content.

I do not publish harmful content.

I do not publish morally reprehensible content.


SO WHAT IS THE PROBLEM, PEOPLE!?!

Does my Photography and Artwork have the same repulsive power that Garlic has against Vampires?

Holy Bajeezers! I hope my Photography and Artwork are not like Garlic.

LOGICALLY THINKING

IF, and that is an unknown “IF”, everything is running normal and I am relatively productive and publishing blogs every week, and that is something that I do. And, IF I attempt to publish my best and most interesting works, and if my artworks and photographs are not like Cryptonite to the eyes of other bloggers, and, IF randomly other WordPress bloggers visit my site, as well as, my regular subscribers, THEN, NORMALLY, I THINK THAT OVER TIME, IF ALL OF THOSE JUST MENTIONED CONDITIONS ARE ACHIEVED, AND I ALSO VISIT OTHER PEOPLE’S BLOGS, AND INTERACT IN SOME WAY, THEN, one should expect a normal increase of subscribers over time.


I DO NOT THINK that my Sine-Wave like Subscribers’ trend over the last year or more, is normal. I think it is in fact, abnormal. In fact, it makes no bloody sense at all!

If people really want to unsubscribe from my blog for no apparent reasons, then it is simply Tough-Cookies for me. If my blog is so horrible, however, then why did you sign up in the first place? Think about that.

I have continually tried to improve my content, both in my exhibiting of my Photography and Artwork, and, in writing informative posts to teach specific lessons about photography. Occasionally, I stray off the Photography and Artwork tracks, and discuss about my incurable diseases, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Osteoporosis, and Ménière’s Disease. These health conditions are part of me and I discuss how they affect my general life and my artistic life, so these topics are not very off-topic after all. I also discuss my Genealogy occasionally, because it is of interest to me, and it is also part of who I am, so I feel like it is an interesting subject to research and write about. Nonetheless, probably 90% of my blog posts are art and photography related.

So….Why?

Why are any of the topics I write about offensive enough, or so incredibly boring, to make anyone want to purposefully unsubscribe from my blog?!?

I have no clue, and no answer to that question. I cannot fathom any good reasons to unsubscribe from blogs unless if they do any of the three things I mentioned previously: publishing hurtful, harmful, or immoral content.

Maybe it is a conspiracy—Stranger things can happen, although, it is improbable.

☆ That being the case, when all logical things have been reduced and discarded, then the TOTALLY Ridiculous must be the answer: I MUST BE STUCK in the WordPress Sine-Wave-like, Subscribe-Unsubscribe Do-Until-Loop! That is the answer, it must be! Or…maybe not.


ADDENDUM TO THIS POST:

THIS IS FRACKING INCREDIBLE!

Within the time it took to write, edit, and publish this blog post, I LOST ONE MORE SUBSCRIBER!

LMAOBFT!

This is unfrackingbeliveable!
