Vanishing Point

A rather insightful article on FLTR magazine highlighted the impact of images with converging lines. The article by Richard Gray was principally covering what makes people ‘like’ Instagram images and one of the things that stood out was that images depicting converging lines were amongst the most popular.

Aerial Sunrise

I love flying, but hate airports. Having to be there at 4.30 am for a 6.30 am flight is never common sense in my view, but that’s the world we live in today. Most times, I manage to make it to the airport, onto the jet and into a seat without having to wake too […]

The term is generally credited to Glyn Evans who […]

Why I Have A Thing For French Farmhouses

The more Francophobic of my friends often ask me what’s my fascination for old French farmhouses? I’ve an affection for them that outpaces the inevitable rose tinted glasses of holiday memories so I guess it would be a good thing to give an explanation.

Chasing Light with Lexus and Ansel Adams

This is a really good video released by Lexus USA. Teaming up with The Ansel Adams Trust and Motor Trend, they revisit the locations of probably the most famous landscape photographer in the world. It’s around fifteen minutes long, which flies in the face of the normal 3 or 4 minute maximum mantra connected with […]
