This is a group set up by Eduard Germis and myself. It's an idea that's interested me since I started photography and it could make a great group so feel free to look it up.

From the old vivid shots of floks of starling in the sunset to the atmospheric and poetic Holga shots, I have always been an admirer of your work. I hope to follow you development even longer and see what beautiful things you can capture and create in the future!

... it's not about reality so much as it is honesty & the lack of pretense, and that's what you find right here before your eyes in these images.

One of my favourite contacts from when I first came to Flickr, I was totally knocked out by the style and quality of his photos and he continues to develop (ho ho) and impress. Cinematic, atmospheric, quirky and original. When he uploads something I am always itching to see it. He has impeccable taste and has pointed me in the direction of some modern day masters of film photography. Cheers Jimblob.

Really admirable, and inspiring.

The "JBB style" is so unique !!! it's true that we are always being influenced by what we see, not only in flickr but in art, paintings, cinema, and above all in our daily living.

James is a versatile and varied photographer, always seeking a new, interesting perspective on his chosen subject. This has yielded some awe inspiring results, not just of the peculiar, but also the mundane; always in his inimitable style which can be seen in all his photographs despite the huge breadth of subjects covered. From a technological perspective James continues to be audacious in his search for new tools with which to ply his trade. Apparently not satisfied with the range of effects achievable by digital means, he experiments with everything and anything he can get his hands on; my particular favourite being his lovely Minolta Autocord. His ostensible adventurousness makes him, in my opinion, a great asset not only to flickr, but to photography as whole. Despite the mass of approbative comments he has accumulated over the past year, he still remains modest and humble. I am sure that this modesty is what allows him to continue to inspire and innovate, but also has a practical benefit to lesser photographers like myself. He was one of my first contacts, always taking the time to view my pictures, write encouraging praise and give helpful advice. Since meeting him in person, not only has he continued to inspire, but also proved to be entertaining, humorous, and most of all extremely friendly. I regret greatly that our personal encounters have been so few and will remain so due to our differing paths, but I consider it a great honour that I was able to know such a man for any time at all and I wish him the greatest success in whatever path he chooses to follow, and am sure that such success will inevitably come his way.

Following the stream of James' pictures makes me more and more certain of that there is pure joy, hard work, and the willingness to follow an idea to lengths that makes a great photographer ... Jim is great!

Además de simpatía, JBB posee un gran talento fotografico. Sin duda, esta en el grupo de "chalados" de Flickr a los que conviene no quitarles el ojo de encima.

James is one of the greatest discoveries i have made all year on flickr. He draws us in to make a connection with the subject.. A street photographer like James wanders around town, ready to react when something unexpected comes his way. He has a sublime mastery of technique, a truly stunning cinematic breath of vision, with dappled sunlight, the orange rays of the blinding sun to create layers of shadows and textures, to conjure an atmosphere of melancholic wistfulness. Also his muse is the stunning Jo, who melts my heart, this guy is heading for a career as a pro photography, remember where you saw him first.

James is so very sweet and kind...he has a heart of gold and does not miss the small details in life. His shots are real and show an immense amount of depth. With all that talent, heart, and drive...I believe he will achieve anything he wants to in life, photography and otherwise.
