Blog

According to the Celestial Emporium of Benevolent Knowledge, the ancient Chinese encyclopædia, all animals can be described as belonging to one of the following 14 categories:

  • Those that belong to the emperor
  • Embalmed ones
  • Those that are trained
  • Suckling pigs
  • Mermaids (or Sirens)
  • Fabulous ones
  • Stray dogs
  • Those that are included in this classification
  • Those that tremble as if they were mad
  • Innumerable ones
  • Those drawn with a very fine camel hair brush
  • Et cetera
  • Those that have just broken the flower vase
  • Those that, at a distance, resemble flies

Fortunately, my categorisation of blog posts is equally as logical and elaborate. So to limit this list of posts to a single category, please hover your mouse over the word “blog” at the right-hand side of the menu above and wait for the drop-down menu with different categories to appear.

Lewis and Harris Summer Holiday

Holiday pictures from the Isle of Lewis and Harris in the Outer Hebrides. May contain beautiful beaches, impressive mountains, still waters, friendly sheep and bag pipe players.

The Ongoing Moment

Geoff Dyer’s The Ongoing Moment is a fascinating, interesting and fun overview of important photographers and themes in American photography, focusing mainly on their pre-colour photography. A good read that will form the basis for further exploration of many of the individuals discussed.

Plane spotting in Manchester

Rather than sit in an airport hotel and get bored, I spent the evening plane spotting. The hoped-for plane-against-dramatic-sunset picture didn’t materialise, but it was a good evening nonetheless.

Exploring Color Photography

There is nothing wrong with Exploring Color Photography, and there is a lot of things right about it. It just feels like Robert Hirsch has taken a general photography manual and added the word color [sic] to every other heading, just like a house-owner looking to make a quick sale will get the decorator in to give all the walls a quick lick of magnolia. On the plus side, the book is lavishly illustrated with a large selection of beautiful (color) photographs.

CRUK 2013 night in Hornchurch

On Saturday the 21st September in Hornchurch, the right place to go was Club 2004 which hosted the annual Cancer Research UK Charity Event arranged by Jenni Winfield and Mark McIlven. I was fortunate enough to have been invited to come along and take some pictures from the evening.
