I have no clothes, trousers and shoe

Weather is cold and rainy today. Retail/Drugstore is expensive. I have no Jeans. Some men in this region wear too long pants. Also Jurists are expensive, because neighbours are getting more and more aggressiv and loud. I have nothing to drink and eat. so Im hungry and thirsty. Im not lesbian or bisexuell. Everybody know that pissing in the mouth is not allowed. I hate kisses and sex, because they are dirty and not good in bed.I've washed everything, washed me and rubbish away. I have no residence,cellar, hair dryer, backpack, cigarettes, money, bike, car and ticket. I need warm food, drinking, Jeans, T-Shirt, warm shoe and room, clothes, toal, usw. A Psychologist dont brings money. A lot of People here in this region are not normal, because war is crazy. On the way is no toilet, because I have diarrhea, On the belly below should not be pushed around.Im not married and have no children. Fat and sour is not healthy. This world is crazy and diaconia is insane. I have no contact, especially not with artisans. The most men are married and have family. Narcotics and operations are dangerous.

Great work! Congratulations!

Emmie Gray02-Sep-2010 06:50
Jill, thank you for the nice comment. I took that picture for the itinerant truck-driver, he likes it as well.
I have browsed around your galleries, and find them inspiring. I feel the urge to take more photos and read more poetry. I'm a big fan of Rilke. 8-)

A true creative and personal work. This is no so common an Pbase. Congratulations.

Hey Jill, do you remember me from the PAD group a few years ago? I was just catching up on your pics. Of all the people I've met on pbase yours speak to me on a deeper level than any! I remember we shared the love for old houses and barns. Are you currently active? I finally crossed the great bridge to a digital SLR and I'm wanting to get active again. Once again love your work-many blessings for the New Year.

One word. Brilliant.
Reneneer12-Jul-2008 06:47
Lovely photos. I'm glad I came across them.
Dana 20-Jun-2008 15:58
I came across you gallery by accident and what a find. I really enjoyed the images, especially the emotions gallery and the leaves on trees (I forget the gallery name). Ther other image I thought was interesting and original was the shopping carts against the wall. For me, that image is sad/lonely. I will be checking back.

Beautiful work, and of course "The World Became Brighter in 1904" has even more meaning now.
Guest 20-Nov-2007 14:50
Some of the most original,beautiful and stunning work I've seen. SUPERB.
John Jr 12-Nov-2007 22:06
Hi Jill, I had to smile when I saw the green eye of Macavity. T. S. Eliot said Macavity was a ginger cat. But we have a black cat that I would surely have named Macavity if I had only known what mischief he would do. Most impressed by your art for "The velocity of sorrow." John Jr
Amy Nawrocki 14-Oct-2007 23:45
I loved your photo that accompanied my poem, "The Days of Claires and Jodies," in the Lily Lit Review. Thanks!
Jean-Claude Liehn18-Aug-2007 03:17
I'am with great pleasure back in your gallery. You are amongst the few PBase photographers how have a personnal style. Just as for writers, this is probably the begining of art. I particulary appreciate the frontal views of old walls. A subject I love. A traditional subject for the american documentary style of photography. But what you do looks more in the direction on pictorialism...Very personal indeed...Jean-Claude Liehn, Reims, France.
Jeff Real30-Jul-2007 02:32
Words fail me when I try to describe how your wonderful work affects me.
You have an artists soul. Thanks you so much for all your kind comments on my work.
cat bounds16-Jun-2007 18:57
Jill, your galleries are inspiring. I'm not a photographer, but I do own a decent camera that gathers dust. I wish you would consider creating a gallery devoted to giving examples and short tutorials on how you achieve some of your wonderful, artistic effects. Just a thought...
Guest 13-Jun-2007 15:48
Lovely work. Share more please.
Guest 06-Apr-2007 12:59
I have seen a lot of photographers on PBase. Among them, some have good technical skills, some have a sense of beauty, but just a few have brought photography to an art. You are among them.
Curt G.31-Mar-2007 20:51
Like others befoe me, I sort of got caught up going from gallery to gallery and image to image. Brought back memories of the friends I met on my old 1955 Harley K model (flathead predecessor of the Sportster). What lured me into your galleries was one image that looked as though it were a Polaroid print, yet wasn't. You are doing a great job with postprocessing -- unless that Canon has a Polaroid back (grin). Now to go back and vote for some of these galleries that do such a good job of revealing a part of America, the real people and the real places. Good work!!
Guest 07-Mar-2007 15:15
You're 11 on my scale of 10.

I am so glad I found your gallery - I have only looked at a few - I want to savour these images. I love the tribute for your daughter & the collages. You are a poet.
Mac Squires 01-Feb-2006 14:03
Found you while looking for fellow artists using birch bark. Wow. I love the way you use the texture and colour of the bark to enhance simple natural forms. I draw with black ink on the bark using colour and texture as the basic construct for my pictures.
Mike Morgan 10-Dec-2005 15:52
I think I stumbled upon your gallery via my brother's gallery, to JHR's gallery, to Larry Bosworth's gallery and then to yours......your pictures are very nice but I really like your message on our profile by Johann Wolfgang Von Goethe. It's so true......great message to all men...

Hi Jill
You took pictures of our Border Collies at Guntersville State Park on the 15th of June. Don't know whether they are useful but you asked me to send you a couple pictures of them playing basketball and friesbies. Will be glad to do so if you will give me an email address to send them to.

Edward Jack 21-Apr-2005 12:05
Stumbled across your work on Pbase... I have yet to see "a bad image". As is often said, photography is about taking away elements from a scene and putting them in context - mostly by the use of composition and light. I have seen no better proponent of this on Pbase.. atleast not as consistently. I like your self portriat too... talent and looks!
Muril Robertson 12-Apr-2005 02:04
Very nice gallery. Some of the best work I've seen. I have bookmarked your site and will come back often.

Guest 19-Feb-2005 19:12
It's been just amazing to watch your transformation.
You've gone from being a person tentatively trying to express herself with a camera, to an artist for whom the camera is but one tool.
I admire your capacity for growth and for open expression.
Thanks for sharing it all.

Hi Jill,
I think your work and your cross-processing / post-processing techniques are excellent. I just love the "older - deteriorated" looks on your photos. Very cool indeed. Keep up the good work and keep on sharing!
Guest 20-Jan-2005 21:47
Hi Jill! I thoroughly enjoyed visiting your stunning galleries! You have such an affinity with light and rich, rich colour. I am impressed!!!

Emmie Gray02-Dec-2004 18:29
Jill, I have been meaning to drop you this line to thank you for your very nice comments on my galleries. I find your work to be unique and very visually satisfying. I especially like your 'Smorgasbord' gallery - the images in there are so richly textured, and seem to evoke memories of things from my past - as the previous poster suggested, an emotional response. Thank you for sharing your vision with us, it's always inspiring.
Guest 21-Nov-2004 02:16
I was going through my galleries and re-read some of your comments there. I decided to revisit your work. Thank you, Jill. I enjoyed my visit very much. Your work makes the viewer feel. For me, that's what Pulitzer prize winning photos do. Good work, Lady.

Dear Jill,

Your photography is wonderful - great job. You have an obvious talent for both composition and technique, you've got very clever Ideas and execute them beautifully. Thanks for telling me about your gallery. I've looked at a lot of your work here and will come back to view more. Keep up the good work. We need you at HPS!

Hi Jill
Thanks for the visit,I'm trying to do something uncommon, with lots of humor. don't know if my album is a photo album or on it's way of becoming a on line encyclopedia.
Very nice gallery you have, shot whatever the best image your eye catches. Did you know that the best photo is the one others haven't seen...
Best regards from Peru
Guest 04-Aug-2004 01:43

You are an awesome photograper!!! Your images are AWESOME... All of them!
I hope to be a fraction of a photographer that you are one day!


Bill Baird15-Jul-2004 12:09
Hi Jill, Thanks for stopping by my galleries the other day! Yes, I have been busy with health related activities and I feel great! Have not been photographing very much. I do have some stuff I want to get posted soon. With everything going on with me right now I had to suspend my PAD. I really feel bad about it but I just did not have the time to do it. I am hopeing I can restart the PAD in the near future. Keep up the good work! I really do enjoy browsing your images. Regards Bill :o)
Guest 10-Jul-2004 12:12
Thanks for your encouraging comments.
I have not totally closed the door on PAD -
At this point I think I will continue but I need more time to think about it.
(After reading some of the posts in the PAD forum I got mixed feelings about PAD and thought I had to kind of sit back and analyze how PAD fits into my way of working in photography.)
Best Regards, Peter

Jill, or rather, JILL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Baby, you are the rockin' most UBER Mama! I'm lucky as hell to have met you so early on in my Pbasing Existence. You are the rock that keeps my sand from
drifting sea word! Thus Far, TRUE dat, dat TRUE!

I really dig what you do baby, your photographs rock me
in a boat that never sinks! Your self portraits sex-me-up! Woooooooooo
and I didn't even know that was you? But now knowing that is YOU I can go full out crazy on you (which I think is a song by HEART) but let's backtrack to Led Zepplin and discuss some Lemon Squeezing, naaaaaaah, we had to delete all that craziness, eh? haaaaaaaa! Baby, Baby, baby,,,

And the roses?
Honey please is that legal?wooooooooooooooo :))))))))))))))))
HOT! some of those should be banned;)

I dig your works and almost even better than that I DIG YOU! So when you get real clean and decide to leave that sudsy tub, remember your masses, we are out here. Your minions, all of us, we
LOVE YOU! WE LOVE JILL! yes, indeed, we do, weeeeeeee DO!
ha, woo, right on!

Mattana18-Jun-2004 19:48
Hi Jill:
Thanks for comments on my pictures and the California Poppy gallery. I enjoy reading them very much. Well, the Temporary gallery started out with the idea that I was going to place pictures of my weekly excursion for one to two weeks and delete them. Then I started on this Poppies project thinking that I will have only a few pictures of them. The gallery grows on me so I think I will make it permanent. Thanks for the nudge.
bluewatermonk07-Jun-2004 11:26
I am glad I dropped in here to see your work. You have some stunning candids in here. You accidental tourist galleries are excellent!

Hubert Steed26-May-2004 17:30
Thank you for your kind words about my man reading the NY Times in Washington Sq Park. I like your feeling for people in your galleries. Your moods and expressions of your subjects are genuinely captured. I also appreciate your Goethe quote. Thank you for sharing your photos, thoughts and feelings. All the best!
Guest 09-May-2004 18:55
Hi Jill,

Thanks for the compliment. I too think it's a nice place to be at that time of day. I do have to give David credit. The first several shots I took kept coming out dark. So I emailed to him, and he lighted it up for me. What a guy! However, I accidentally deleted it, well I deleted the photo, then had to repost it. So your message is in cyber space.

I have to tell you that your work is just wonderful. I enjoy looking at your creativity on a daily basis. Oh and I did get those big tea cups at Kirkland. Fun store!

faith loffler 06-May-2004 01:59

Yes, I am working harder in retirement, just less.
Guest 18-Apr-2004 17:31
Silly me when I thanked you for the welcome into the PAD group I replied to myself. Glad the "countdown sign" gave you a laugh. This PAD is a lot of fun. The pictures are just amazing. Also inspiring to seek that creative photo that is just waiting to be taken.

Guest 02-Apr-2004 05:07
Thanks for checking out the beginings of my photo a day. It led me to follow the link to your galleries and stumble on your enchanting work. I must also say that you have quite a way with words. I look forward to seeing more of your work as well.
Guest 19-Mar-2004 12:48
Hi Jill, thanks for your kind message, I've been looking through your site and have to say that the PAD galleries are your forte, maybe something about the discipline, or the regular feedback seems to be really inspiring you to improve daily.... I'll be back!
Guest 17-Mar-2004 18:55

Jill, beautiful and breathless photos. Regarding my Harmless snoozer, ONE never knows. Around the SF area they are at every stop light or conner. On occasions (usually a red stop light) I have chatted with them. Yes, enough to write a book. I will share more photos asap
Thanks for sharing

alexeig15-Jan-2004 16:14
Hi Gill,

Many thanks for stopping by and for the kind words. I had a look at your galleries: you have an uncommon gift of seeing beauty in everyday things. I envy your eye. Your Everglades shots are also fantastic.
Action shots with G5: it is clearly not a camera for a sports journalist, so be prepared for a lot of failures. Use ISO400 for indoor shots without a flash, open your lens, put zoom in full tele, put manual focus to 5 meters, this will give a depth of field from 5 to infinity and reduce the shutter lag to minimum. Point your camera to where action is and make as many shots as your memory will take. I made approx. 200 shots during that handball game from which 100 were deleted immediately due to technical faults and from remaining 100 only 20 were what I consider OK. So, it is approx. 10% success rate.

Enjoy your G5, it is amazing camera.

Jill, You are awesome and very creative... I love all of your pictures! It's always good to kick back and breathe and looking at some of your work makes it easier to kick back and relax at the computer. Good job.

Thank you Jill for your comment on my "winter" gallery. Yep, we do get a little snow now and then, and even though it can look nice, I really don't like it! I wish you a happy 2004!
