Two New Books – Kickstarter Backer Report – New Images

26 Nov

Hi to my Kickstarter backers.

Thank you so much. I am able to feature a second book thanks to you. It is in the works with my publisher, http://www.xlibris.com. I don’t need Kiskstarter backing for this.

My new published book will feature 70 + images taken by my mother during the 50 years that she spent photographing children, her specialty, as well as many adult portraits, and the most amazing portraits of Movie Stars.
None of this is a big deal except for the fact that my mother took the best pictures ever in her unique way. I will illustrate some of these on my blog soon. You will be forced to acknowledged her genius when you see these.

My second book that I am starting to write is a book that I have to write. Anyone who knows me knows that I am smitten with some kind of communication that I have been getting from Aliens (or something like this). I know that this is nothing more than a claim but when the product of such an alliance is analyzed it is clear that something very profound is being brought to the awareness of the human spiritual genome. I can tell you that all the claims in my book about such an alliance, ENOS, has been holding up very well over time … about 35 years that I have been involved with such a heady source. Almost anyone who has formulated a new science or writing that is ever 30 years old will find that what they have has gone stale. This is not happening to my writing at all. Instead, I have a body of writing that is growing. When I read through my book, Enos, I am surprised by the majesty and profoundness of the writing. I don’t know how I did this ?

I have been sending my book to people as an e mail attachment (a PDF file). If you send me your e mail I will send you this book as well as the 4th and 5th books of a five book ENOS series.

My new writing is about a new religion that I will be able to formulate now .. that I am literally told to do … right about now … by my source of wisdom. I am not kidding.

I have some new pictures to attach here. I went to Newbury Port Mass. and to Plum Island to get some pictures of an owl and the ocean. I think you will like these.

Note that the image files I feature on my blog are free for anyone to use … to reproduce, print, make greeting cards etc.

I also make expert digital prints for people. I charge $35. for an 11 x 14 print on 330g cotton paper. I use Epson quality inks.

I sell a 330g 11 x 14 size print of the images featured on my blog printed as above for $65. or $35. for a 8 1/2 x 11 size print.

For mailing in the U.S. add $15.

The messages I can send from my computer via kickstarter have been severely hampered from the beginning of the project for my book “The Way We Were”.

I am very happy non the less because it has all worked out very well. I even have enough money to fund another book ! This will be a book entitled … “Norma Forss Photography 1932 to 1989″ Book 3

More details about this book to come.

I will be working with Xlibris publishers.

What the Universe Wants

25 Oct

I am going (trying) to answer a big question posed in my recent blog.

We can only know what the universe wants when we are honestly and innocently observing of all the phenomenon that we can see that is of a continuous stream of unpredictable events.

This is something that we really do not want to know. We want to know God (a big controlling mind over us).

When something bad happens to us or to someone we know that is obviously in the realm of chance, we may very well want to think that it happened for a specific purpose.

Here are some observations that cannot be put down.

We can know the universe (know what it wants) when we observe its long term successes.

Nothing in the universe is hoarded. Everything is in use.

There is a force for purity in the universe that can only be described as a force for purity. This is saying that we can control our fate somewhat simply by our behavior. If we are strong, good and honest our good fate will be better and longer. If we are weak, bad and dishonest some bad fate will be upon us.

There is a kind of ‘slate clearing’ comeuppance in the universe in any arena where there is corruption and injustice.

If we are loving and honest and sharing of our wealth we can last a long time in the universe (a million years like all the honest animals do). If we are too greedy, well … we will be faced with a situation where we are totally surprised by a sudden downfall with all of our stuff … that we cannot take with us !

None of this will make too much sense to you if you are too smart (so masterful with your ways with wealth). But BUT over the long run we will become the victims of something I what I have been claiming for many years. This is the God Force. This Is not a thinking entity of any kind. It is logical to describe this force as the universe immune system. It is so because it quacks like a duck and swims like a duck, so to speak … it acts exactly like the immune system that all living things have (creatures) have.

I am happy to tell you about a solution that we can employ with our amazing science these days. It is the science of truth detection that we are getting better and better at.

“Did you get this from the Aliens, George ?”

Yes. It is a simple solution that will enable us to go on as we are for the most part .. for a long time … but with enough truth in our human affairs that will keep us below the radar (the triggering of the universe immune system).

It is simople

George Forss – How to photograph a sunflower

17 Oct

I have a 1 1/2 x 3 foot garden in front of my gallery. This small plot of land become a garden when Jack Metzger, the owner of “Jack’s Outback” next door to me, decided to till my small plot of land and plant sunflowers here. He has been keeping my garden growing … glowing with sunflowers for years now. I am like, eternally grateful to this man.

Every year, like magic, some sunflowers bloom. It is always exciting for me to want to photograph the sunflowers that come around.

This year I singled out only one sunflower. This was a very large one. It was at my height standing straight and looking just perfect, as a sunflower can be.

I took three pictures from the same vantage point. The background for my study was the entrance to my gallery. I had to work out a composition for my study carefully. The first picture I can illustrate here shows my skill at doing this. The second picture has a person in it suddenly … within the same composition I set up ! This is Cambridge own Larry Sconzo, the man I nickname The Godfather. Larry looks out for all of us in Cambridge. He is very bold so he put himself right in my picture while I was taking the first picture. So, I have a portrait of Larry with my sunflower. The composition for this second picture is very good. I could not have orchestrated this second picture any better than this. Larry just stood in my picture as you see ?

For my third picture … while my camera is still in the same place … I decided to incorporate a large art work behind the sunflower. I was smart about this when I thought of using a large Donna Wynbrandt work that is about 4 by 6 feet. I also made this third picture a horizontal picture. The is an exemplary artist of the third kind. Her art works are always exciting and tasteful.

George Forss – Making a Vow

25 Sep

In 1969 I sort of made a vow, or a promise to ‘bring back the hippies’. This was just after the mud in Woodstock ended and I noticed that the energy of this movement was gone suddenly. I am sensitive to stuff like this. Indeed many ‘Hippies’ were proclaiming that the thing was over. I thought bad about all of this. In this period, just after Woodstock, I encountered some hippie types who were ‘crashing’ at my place in the Bronx. They said they were abducted by Aliens and they had a report writing with them that I was told was the actual words of the Aliens they encountered. I did not think well about any of this until I read the Alien words in a report that a hippie girl named Buffy wrote out. It was just what they said it was. The writing (words) were not words that a human being would put together. They left the next morning and I went of with my life knowing that my reading of Buffy’s report had a curative effect over me. I was suddenly able to function better in society.

Seven years after this event I was in business ! I was a street peddler who can sell his photography in the streets. I invented this. I was the first to do something like this. What happened at this time is a real ‘happening’. I saw Buffy again while I was selling my pictures. We recognized each other and the whole encounter went sour suddenly when I asked Buffy about her Alien report. She went away from me at this point saying that her report was junk. Right at this time something came over me. I got very sick and I started to get words in a sentence in my mind about very heady subjects that I never knew before. I had just made a vow … this time a very serious one. The kind of vow that an over-grown child character would make. Me ! The same person who made a vow in 1969.

This is when some sort of ethereal spooks decided that they could use me as a conduit to write out a new Bible-like tome addressing their major concerns about humanity. From this time on I started getting what I call “Finding Sentences” that I would record on pieces of paper, a book, newspaper, racing form, etc. Anything I could write on suddenly because these ‘sentences’ were very fleeting and I would quickly lose my awareness of them. I went to work. Me the perfect fool. I started accumulating all of my ‘Finding Sentences’ and in 1983 I started putting my great Hippie Bible together. This is my book entitled “ENOS”. I self published this book in 2009 after I got 66 rejections from publishers. I don’t get criticism for my writing. I get silence … after all these years. This is telling me something. No one is able to tell me how my writing is wrong. Most people will not even get into this book. Silence ??

After all these years I find that nothing in my book ENOS has failed … the many hundreds of notions (wisdom) claims my book contains.

I can e mail this writing as a PDF file to your email. Don’t be afraid of the universe (the spooks). I know I do not have what you would want to read. I have what the universe wants you to read.

I also have some new pictures here.

Thanks for your time,

George Forss – Missing fair photo – Two new pictures

10 Sep

Whaa ! It happened again. One of the files I wanted to post in my last blog didn’t get through. I think there is a third hand messing up everything I do (sometimes). Well, uh … I think the overall size file of my last blog was too large. I can put three picture files here. The missing fair file and two new ones.

Jack Metzger of Jack’s Outback fame always does unusual plants in my Ginofor garden. We always get sunflowers. This year a bunch of gourds grew in my garden. They were mostly hidden but when we dug them out I could not help but notice how beautiful they were so I put them all in a studio type picture with a seamless wall. I have a roll of blue paper that is good for this.

I also have a picture of a young man lying so relaxed-like on a grassy ground with a cat. I don’t think I have seen a more relaxed person on the ground like this. This picture is from a Jon katz open house event on his property in June. I used a film camera for this one.

I sell my images for $65. for an 11 x 14 size or $35. for 8 1/2 x 11 size. I print on 330g fiber base 100 % cotton paper.
