The Mirror

A mirror can add a lot to a photograph. It can add depth or light or the presence of something you wouldn't normally be able to see. It can double the appearance of something key to the composition. It can change the angle of some object. It can flip part of the image and force you to look at it in a different way. For me, though, probably the best thing a mirror brings to a photograph is evidence that you're not a few feet...

Street Photography By Tadashi Yamashita

Another post in my occasional series of photographers I’ve discovered on Google+, this time featuring Tokyo-based Tadashi Yamashita. There are quite a few Japanese street photographers on Google+ and there’s something about the style of street photography from Japan – and, particularly, that from the big cities such as Tokyo – that always appeals to me. And it’s not just the occasional Godzilla sighting...

We are safe. For now, we are safe. But we must be ever...

Rabbit Suit

"Why are you wearing a rabbit suit?" "Why are you wearing a little human suit?" "After what you call centuries of experimentation it has been determined that this form best fits our purpose of pre-invasion intelligence gathering on 'M' class – that's M for Meat, by the way, and nothing to do with your entertaining distraction media called Star Trek – worlds. Close proximity to a large...

Norway Cruise – Crown Princess

I've finally finished going through the photos I took on our cruise through the Norwegian fjords on board the Crown Princess. Nothing too arty, nothing heavily processed, just a little bit of cleaning up, and a very, very small selection of the pictures taken. You don't want to see them all; trust me. Pictures in this album are in no particular order and feature various fjords, Geiranger, Olden, Stavanger, Bergen, and Flåm....
