I am not my work.
I am a photographer, writer, a loving husband and father.

I read a quote at someones profile that just stuck in my head, because it describes so well how I feel concerning bw. It goes something like this and if I got it wrong I appologize.

"When you photograph people in color you can see the color of their clothes. But when you photograph people in black and white, you can see their souls! "

AND this one..

"I suggest though, that if we strive for perfect, digitally processed images and prints, the further away we might get from our own fallibility and accident prone humanity."- Michael Kenna.


Be happy with what you got, it can ALWAYS get worse.
Life is a journey, not a destination..

    "Peter Levi, apart from being a really nice guy I met on Flickr, is a true street photographer. His work is instinctive, yet considered and very polished. He is a source of daily inspiration for hundreds of street togs and he's a real asset to this community."

    "Peter, your work is incredibly good. This is an obvious understatement, but "how ?", i ask " do i do justice to this mans talent"...

    Your black and white images are worth striving for and your eye for detail and composition make it clear that photography is a perfect marriage for you.
    You see the possibility in a mundane scene that most of us would walk by every day and not care to notice. You truly glorify the 'slice of life' that makes living a wonderful journey.

    I wish you more than luck - you are very talented and your work deserves recognition - but what is by far your most fabulous trait is your humbleness.
    Despite your obvious popularity and good image stream you are polite, kind, fair and a loyal flickr contact.
    With so many contacts or flickr personalities absorbed in their own self importance that they can only 'take' but not 'give' this makes you truly special.

    All the best Peter - you certainly deserve it.."

    "Impressed me about your work because you have a perfect control over the high lights and strong contrasts. His work is clean and completely clear. And I'm not even talking about his compositions, which I consider one of the best I have ever seen.
    Your photos are a real lesson for me. I just hope to be smart enough to learn."
