Fishing (#46) — by Joe Reifer
I was just showing my friend some photos I took a few weeks ago a the Berkeley Bulb when I decided to show her your website (especially the ghost shot of Gabe). To my delight your newest addition, was the same scene of the fisherman as my photo that she was holding in her hand.I liked my pic, but you nailed with what appears to be perfect use of the lensbaby.
Thanks , I enjoy your work.
Thanks, Barry. I’ve enjoyed wandering around the Bulb for the last 5 or 6 years. Sometimes it’s heartbreaking to see the amazing art fall victim to the elements or vandalism, but something new gets built eventually. I’ll often go there with only the Lensbaby — it’s such an other worldly place that the blurrier vision seems appropriate.
For anyone who wants to learn more about the Bulb, I highly recommend the movie Bums’ Paradise.
