They’re BACK!

 To the best of my knowledge, Polaroid was defunct. So I was a little surprised when a friend of mine pointed this out to me. I’ve always been a gadget fan and this seems hugely innovative. The size of it is incredible and I noticed the mounting system. It’s Clever. Very Clever. With this little… Read more »

I Had NO idea.

Considered, perhaps,the all time Master of Photography, Henri Cartier-Bresson was a Legend. I stumbled into this fact only a day or so ago. Everyone who knows the ‘History of Photography’ has heard that Cartier-Bresson was the father of modern photo journalism, as did I. However, I’d assumed that he lived and died many, many years… Read more »

Documentary Photography

At some point in time, memories fade. The Bhopal Tragedy. Thirty years ago now. I was 31 and preoccupied with entirely different things.

Best Of The Year Camera Reviews.

Well it’s coming up to year end and so it’s inevitable that the Camera Of The Year Reviews are about to begin. I was a little surprised that Samsung came in as high as they did with second place but good on them, and it’s a Mirrorless to boot. A lot of Pro’s would never… Read more »

Battle River Railway

Ahhhh… Chris He’s Eclectic to say the very least. He’s passionate about loads of old stuff. Boler Trailers, old buses, old farm equipment..mines, farms, make it old and Chris is fascinated. Probably why he puts up with ME. He also climbs like a billy goat along with his effervescent “Lady Connie”,  can write incredibly long… Read more »
