I am very pleased to present my new website. It has taken me a while to get there, but now it is live. Have a look around. Tell me what you think. And thank you for all the support and kindness you have given to me over the years.
Two photographs from Tokyo today. DSLR is rainy Tokyo – always raining there, it seems.
I like making New Year’s resolutions and usually I am quite good at keeping them. I don’t make many and I tend not to try to make radical changes. One of the resolutions I have made is in relation to my photography and involved, amongst other things, in deciding to look back before looking forward. I want to complete the series of images from Asia last year and also some others taken in 2014. Once that has been completed, the work begins. Stay tuned for updates.
Efforts to remain unseen
Here is the final one in the series of images. This one is unlike the others as it is in colour. Hope you like it. May come back to this style later in year. We will see.
This is another image from Berlin taken with the 1-hour Photo app on the iPhone. I like this app so much.
I was really delighted with the reaction to the short feature on mobiography yesterday and the accompanying blog post I did on mobile photography. Thanks to all for the visits, comments and emails.
Two images today from Berlin taken at night. The iPhone image is of a shop front in the Kreuzberg area of Berlin. A very simple photograph. I was attracted to the colours, light and the way the two pullovers remained so still.
This DSLR image follows on from yesterday’s bike shot. Bright blur.
Berlin! I had the pleasure of spending a few days last week in Berlin where I attended the Online Educa Conference. Check the link to learn about this conference. It was really interesting. The conference was a full two-day event, but I did manage to squeeze in some photography.
Am rushing this morning and will write more about Berlin as a city and its people in later blog posts. For now, we will start with a shot taken in the Kreuzberg district of Berlin. This was just outside the subway station. I really would have loved if someone had obliged and posed for me in the photo booth, but…
On this trip, I used this wonderful app – 1-hour photo – when shooting with the iPhone. It is so cool. How it works is that you take a photo with the app and like the old days you do not get to see the image immediately. Like it says on the tin, you have to wait an hour before the image is processed. It also only shoots in black and white and the tones it produces I really like. I would thoroughly recommend checking it out.
The image here today was taken on the subway returning from Kreuzberg. Standing by the door, I noticed the woman opposite was lost in thought. Quickly, I tried to get the shot and luckily I managed. An instant later she became very self-conscious and aware of being watched. I nodded and smiled. She did not return the smile.
