    Discovery of an interesting and engaging website, with great content and a good voice is a rare find, so I was pleased to come across the FlixelPix site. It’s a little ambiguous about whether he is a professional photographer, or semi-pro, but the photography has great style to it and...

    We visited Gloucester Cathedral at the weekend and marvelled at its glory. It didn’t start well – we entered I was immediately confronted by a man who wanted to know where I was from. Maybe it was the heavenly surroundings, maybe the choir echoing through my brain, or the early...

    The Rewind festival held in Henley-on-Thames over the weekend saw a host of 80’s artists entertaining the 20,000 strong crowd under the blazing sun.

    With running mates decided, the race is on for the top job in world politics. Polls say its even-stevens, but this is where the real campaigning starts and attack campaigns begin! An excellent set of images from Reuters.com here and this image by Larry Downing is from the Guardian’s Picture...

    Comment
    I know, it’s a slightly bizarre thing to have all the techno-wizardry of digital cameras and craving noise free, pixel-perfect images, only to think… “you know what, that would look great if I added some grain…for that cool film look.” Indeed, in a world of freakily over-exposed HDR images and...
