Vincent van Gogh’s work had a far-reaching influence on 20th century art for its vivid colours and emotional impact. He suffered from anxiety and increasingly frequent bouts of mental illness throughout his life, and died largely unknown, at the age of 37, it’s said: ... either ... from a self-inflicted gunshot wound ... or ... shot by an accident by a gun obsessed teenage boy.

Calligraphy in fish form
Calligraphy by one of my student Jaweria Alla ditta. It won a prize in college art competition.
Calligraphy especially of Quranic verses is a revered art in Muslim culture. The tradition centuries old and is still alive. Some calligraphists are especially fond of displaying their art in the form of various shapes especially as birds/animals. This particular calligraphy depicts a line from Holy Quran which may be translated as ‘He is the one who has shaped and designed the heavens and earth’.

Three friends
This picture was taken on request from these friends who found me roaming on a street with a camera. These boys were selling corn cobs on the pavement.

''Tunnel View'' with fog and snow at Yosemite Valley, USA

Artist    :  William Toti
Works   :  A clearing winter storm (Toti edition), color
Links     :  http://bit.ly/1GxTODs 


Artist's statement :

"It was the last day of our Yosemite trip in April 2013. We were scheduled to fly out early the next morning and were planning to make the 4-hour drive to San Francisco that day. When we woke up and saw snow on the ground, we cancelled breakfast and raced up to tunnel view because we knew the snowy scene would be spectacular. And it was. The initial omen: only a coyote awaited us in the parking lot. I screamed as I approached the guardrail with my camera (and I'm not a screamer)-- I knew this would be the shot I had been waiting for. My initial intent was to compose and expose for black-and-white only (shooting in raw and exposing to the left), but when I saw the balanced color composition I decided to include this version in my portfolio as well. And I guess I made the right decision. While I still like my black-and-white version better, this one has received much more attention and positive feedback. The moral, relearned so many times: being lucky (on timing and weather) is as important as being good (in technique). And don't try to guess what the public reaction will be, I would have guessed wrong that my black-and-white version would have received more accolades than this one. And as it turned out, I didn't need to worry about exposing to the left. I had to adjust the exposure in very small increments, but the incredible dynamic range of the D800 allowed me to capture with a single exposure."

Lake Góra, Krubin Meadows, Poland

They say we may expect heavy snowfall this winter and my favourite place on the shore of a small lake may be difficult to reach at that time.  Somehow, I never liked a sight of water reeds frozen in ice. And so I take a peek at them before it all happens.

Lurking on the Molotov Line - tools of the trade

Prints of this photo as well as my other works are available on #crated #fineartamerica and other online galleries

First mentions of compass originate from China and are as old as 2nd century BC. Surprisingly, although most decent smarphones and tablets have GPS-supported compass built in, there are still very few people who know how to use a real compass properly.
All what the common knowledge comes to is that the needle points to the north. Well, this is true (sort of) but actually this seemigly simple device is capable of - i.e. when used with a map - to calculate a ton of data. If you know how...

I can still recall when a fellow researcher, who is a former scout (and a professional surveyor by trade, too!), patiently tried to explain me that north was, well.. not exactly to the north and that the azimuths we measured were just a decent attempt at measuring what we thought to be the most accurate and correct thing in the world...
I've learned a lot since then and a pair of trusty compasses is an indispensable set of tools when lurking on the Molotov Line. We widely use satellite imagery, good quality GPS devices (no, not a smartphone for God's sake!), trackloggers, laser rangefiders and a ton of other stuff but still an ancient compass is of great help.

When I manage to locate, say, 15 pillboxes scattered on the field or hidden in the forest and I collect their GPS locations and then put them on the map all I get is eeerm.... a map with 15 blobs. Except for the information that they are there, it means nothing. But when I use my compass to measure the azimuth from each and every loophole in each and every pillbox and then add them to the map it all suddenly becomes clear. Why were they built this way, why here and not 50 meters to the south? Why this one is facing north and the other one west? Seeing in which direction they were supposed to fire transforms 15 blobs on a map into a clear and meaningful plan of a defence line.

Can a compass be useful for you today, providing you are not lurking on the Molotov Line? Sure it can! 
Next time you face an avalanche of questions from your wife - just because you went to buy cigarettes and failed to come back for three days - just say you lost your compass.

Musing at the night
Where do I go?
When I’m feeling so lost and I don’t want to be found.
When I’m looking and listening for that peace in my heart.
But I know I’ll never hear that sound.

Seller of matches
I met this interesting person in my recent visit to Lahore. He earns his living by roaming in markets and selling safety matches. Don't know how much he can earn by it but must be a meager amount for sustenance. Despite his limitations he was cheerful and optimistic

The artist Edvard Munch investigated his nooks and corners in his mind, searching to achieve self-knowledge, self-awareness ... and found his deep suppressed “rooms” of fear and traumas, as well as his strong passion for what he looked for as life-giving forces. He’s mostly known for his painting “The Scream”, but it’s worthwhile to look at more of his artwork.
