#24. The flower light garland

By pascaljappy | News

This picture borders on macro-photography. It was made in an interior deco shop in Cambridge and the tiny little garland was hanging against the wall in the stairs. What struck me is how much the individual lights reminded me of my natural mauve chandelier (that appears as a header to this blog. Refresh the page […]

#23. Ghost in the tube

By pascaljappy | News

Another entry in my list of blurs (see also Royal Albert Riot and Supersonic Underground, another tube shot made a year ago). Taken inside the London underground and going to the BritMu (British Museum) and converted to B&W. My neighbours obviously thought I was crazy, and so did I seeing the first results. But as […]

#21. Model Venice

By pascaljappy | News

A trick often played by lucky Leica Summilux or Noctilux (and other high quality high speed lenses) users is photographs scenes wide open to paint their subject full of details while making the background a creamy dreamy splash of colours and tones. Not only does this isolate the subject in a purely informational sense, it […]

#20. Royal Albert Riot

By pascaljappy | News

The past posts showed a very limited and subtle colour palette that most masters of painting prefer. But sometimes, it’s just great fun to go bonkers and throw big splashes on the canvas. I already went over board with my Covent Garden Cupcakes, but today is even better/worse 🙂 Today’s picture is all about colour. […]

#19. Lake Major Tourist Boat

By pascaljappy | News

Different lake, different boat. (Yesterday’s picture was about how the other half travel ;), this is how the mere mortals roam the beautiful waters of lago maggiore. Sunset again, but a very different picture with the boat and the layering of the hills all placing the little Isola Superiore at the center of attraction. The […]

#18. Lake Como express

By pascaljappy | News

Contrary to King’s College, Cambridge, this is a colour picture that looks mostly monochrome. Only the evening sky is lit up by the last rays of the setting sun. Some houses and the distant surface of lake Como reflect warm hues but rest of the picture is B&W or, rather black or white. The composition […]

#16. Venus Twins

By pascaljappy | News

Cette statue du Musée Fitzwilliam de Cambridge est à l’effigie de … N’ayant pas regardé sur le moment, et comme elle est très belle, décidons que c’est une Vénus 🙂 La statue en marbre blanc est perchée sur un gros cube également en marbre et domine l’entrée du restaurant du musée sous une grande verrière […]

#15. Tree elf

By pascaljappy | News

Pashley Manor is a wonderful heritage house nested on the border betweem Kent and East Sussex (on that incredible garden vortex that is the A21 :)). The gardens are stunning and display the work of many local artists. Sculptures are abundant throughout the visit and wood carvings of mysterious faces are attached to many trees […]
