The Wild One

From the series The Wild One. Photographs (c) Wolf Kettler.

Since the original 1953 movie of the same title with the unforgettable Marlon Brando, the Wild One has matured and his struggle is no longer one of generations. I was unable to consider Brando for my ad-hoc interpretation of the theme because … well, because he is dead. Instead, I have pleasure in introducing the new Wild One.

Happy Equinox, Happy Autumn

Happy equinox, happy autumn. (c) Wolf Kettler Photographer.

The weather on the last day of summer, yesterday, was picture perfect for the occasion. A misty morning, fading memories of summer during the day and when the evening drew in I was wondering about putting on the log fire.

As we head towards the tipping point of light and dark that is the autumnal equinox, my photography takes on darker themes and I indulge in the romantic, albeit totally imaginary, notion that allows the existence of unexplained creatures and events.

Autumn is in the air (Sunrise no. 16). (c) Wolf Kettler Photographer.

Dark clouds were hanging low over Roundway Hill early this morning and there was an uncharacteristic, warm morning wind, which felt like a distant relative of the Alpine Föhn. A bleak morning.

The romance of dereliction

So often I find dereliction far more romantic and seductive than perfection. Almost always perfection is too smooth, has no corners, no scars or past. Nothing to sense, nothing to touch, nothing to grip.

Whilst some hospitable institutions may display a menu on the door, this establishment lets you sample the kind of dress that you can expect on their staff.

I always thought that life was hard for a photographer with cats but never realised that it could be equally challenging for somebody trying to sell a wood-burning stove. Read what Kaspar did to make my visitor grow two shades paler.

What could be nicer to come home to than a cosily lit up sitting room with a handsome cat waiting for you?

Living in a multi-cat household brings its own challenges. How do you divide your attentions, for instance? After I had photographed Domino yesterday another resident made me feel bad that I had ignored her brothers Camillo and Kaspar on their birthday. I could see my callous shortcomings instantly.
