Flickr a Day 30: ‘Try’

Where is Fe Ilya? He joined Flickr in July 2008, but his last posted pic was taken Dec. 11, 2011. I see him on Tumblr, where his last posted photo was June 7, 2014; despite bleeding-edge presentation, his work looks much better on Flickr. Mmmm. He is active on Twitter. Tagline: “Was a writer. Still a photographer”.

Whew, that’s a relief. Fe had me worried, because his visual, photographic style is hypnotic. He can give up writing. But not photography. Wait. Is it Friday? That’s how hypnotic are his photos. I started looking on Tuesday, and now I’ve lost three days.

“I’m an artist that can’t draw. So photography is my art”, Fe expresses. I relate to that. Totally. As for his self-titled photo “Try”, which features a song lyric that I am unable to identify, shooting date was Jan. 13, 2009, using Sony Alpha DSLR-A200. I chose the photo for color and composition, which show how an incomplete subject can make a complete picture. Vitals: f/2.8, ISO 400, 1/15 sec, 70mm. Unless the being sitting is a mannequin, Fe used Photoshop CS3 to nail done color and hue (look at her skin).
