    An amazing image of a death defying (or very hungry) weasel, who pounced onto a woodpecker, who then took flight in front of amateur photographer, Martin Le-May. This image, appropriately went into the twittersphere, and has already been retweeted several thousand times. Light as a mars bar, ferocious as a...

    Comment
    When hobbies collide – bonsai is a slow moving process, where trees in a pot (the definition of bonsai), take time to develop into the specimen tree’s that people wonder at. There’s pleasure at each stage, whether at five years or fifty, but the bonsai master would always admit that...

  10. How to Shoot Street…with a Leica

    by
    Comment
    I’ve never managed to take street photography on my Leica, somewhat due to timing, as I got my film Leica when I was killing time popping hospital strength painkillers, and doing laps of the lounge in a protective boot and crutches, and I haven’t quite got back in the photographic...
