#657. Monday Post (16 Oct 2017) – The Powa of Pola plus Ottering in Oslo (it’s wet enough)

If you’re in London towards the end of the month, I vividly recommend visiting Wim Wender’s Polaroid exhibition at The Photographer’s gallery. You can read much more about them in The Guardian’s recent article. Why mention them in a Monday Post ? Simply because they illustrate a lot of the

#654. Monday Post (9 October 2017): Travelling – the London Leg

We’ve not forgotten the Monday Post. Holidays, work and other commitments just took over for a few days. Completely normal service should be resumed in a week or so.     Pete Turner’s death a couple of weeks ago both reminded and encouraged me to look at what I was/am

#648. Monday Post (25 September 2017): Peter Turner

Last Wednesday morning brought with it news of the death of Pete Turner.   Don’t feel bad if you’re not familiar with his work – if I hadn’t been looking at his photographs since the mid-60s, I might not have known of him either.   Here’s a clue:

#645. Monday Post (18 September 2017): Chewing the RX10 IV cud

    Behind the scenes at DearSusan, the contributors occasionally indulge in some robust discussion, mostly not for publication, but sometimes delivering excellent content – just the kind the Monday Post was created for.   This conversation was started last week by my reading of Kirk Tuck’s comments on Sony’s

#642. Monday Post (10 September 2017): Trying not to be a Luddite

  Ten thousand songs in my pocket? Why would I want that? It’s just something else to carry around.   Phone. Camera. Separate items please. Why the hell would I want a telephone that took pictures?   Two instances (of many) when new technology has left me scratching my head

#639. Monday Post (4 September 2017): Nikon’s mirrorless plan and (OT) a significant loss

  OK, so I haven’t ordered a D850, although for a few minutes, the pull was quite strong.   It seems as though the first batch of 850s hasn’t even been despatched yet and Nikon Rumors is already speculating on what Nikon’s mirrorless camera will bring. The mock ups are

#637. Monday Post (28 Aug 2017): Nikon’s D850 – would I?

Sitting supping strong Saturday breakfast coffee with my Greyton co-shooters last weekend, I was more than surprised to hear the discussion home in on the imminent release of Nikon’s D850.   True, amongst us was a couple of true pro photographers and a doctor or two, all of whom could

#634. Monday Post (21 Aug 2017): Unsplash – death to sales?

A few days ago, I came across this article on PetaPixel, entitled “the future of photography”. The article is written by Mikael Cho, the founder of a website called “Unsplash”, a social networking photo sharing website on which users to give away copyright free high-resolution photos. I read it with

#631. Monday Post (14 August 2017) – Lovers Gonna Love, Haters Gonna Hate, I’m Just Gonna Shake

Lovers Gonna Love, Haters Gonna Hate, I’m Just Gonna Shake, so sings (or close enough to the actual words) popular recording artist Taylor Swift in a song that I’m really quite familiar with due it being a daily soundtrack to our lives, as my 4 year old daughter now knows how to

#629. Monday Post (7 Aug 2017) – A can of worms

  Ah what feels so good as opening a proper can of worms? I cannot resist, and thus open one called “Sony Vs Fuji”!     Admittedly, Canon and Nikon still rank 1 & 2 in the “serious camera” space. But Sony and Fuji are the ones making progress at
