Some people are genuinely too modest. Peter Kurdulija describes himself as an “amateur photographer”. I could say the same about myself, but the measure of my talents are minuscule compared to his. The man is an artisan, with an astute eye for composition. Any selection from his Photostream would be more than worthy of this humble series.
I chose self-titled “A Life Worth Living” for composition, serenity, and storytelling. “A picnic at the end of the jetty by Lake Mahinapua, just south of Hokitika, epitomises New Zealand way of life—slower pace of the West Coast, a connection to nature and to each other”, he explains of the landscape portrait captured on March 31, 2019, using Nikon D7100 and 18-200mm f/3.5-5.6 lens. Vitals: f/9, ISO 125, 1/320 sec, 44mm.
“I am mostly interested in landscape photography, with the main focus being a creation of a symbolic response to the world around me”, Peter says about his style. “For me, photography is an art so closely tied to our perception of life. Each of my images carry a fragment of feeling I had in that particular moment of time, and hopefully, all of them together will one day recreate what was an emotional landscape of my life”. He joined Flickr in November 2006 and continues to post pics 14 years later.
