#887. Photo buddies

By Paul Perton | Opinion

I’ve had a Macintosh on my desk since the mid-90s and promise not to bore you with the details of why and how here. Suffice to say that’s it has been and remains a willing assistant and cyber friend. Over the intervening years, lots of acquaintances have also moved to Macs and to a greater […]

#881. Content is king

By Paul Perton | Opinion

I’m staring at an empty document. About to write a piece for DS (DearSusan), which is suddenly derailed. I’ve allowed myself to become distracted midway through the opening sentence and now find it necessary to veer off to the Interwebs for a shot of inspiration. And failed – as more distractions came along. We don’t […]

#878. Summer in Scotland

By Paul Perton | Travel Photography

Early July signals our departure for the north of Scotland, to join friends for what has become an annual week of salmon fishing on the Spey.

#831. Wabi Sabi in action

By Paul Perton | Interview

I met Nancee Rostad at a photography workshop in Page, AZ some years ago. I really enjoyed her abstract, colourful work and have one of her prints at home. We became photobuddies and keep in (ir)regular touch as our lives continue on two different continents. Nancee lives near Seattle and in recently visiting Japan, discovered […]

#823. We’re going nowhere

By Paul Perton | Opinion

The two seem to go hand in hand; a hobby (or profession) and reading about it on the Web. For me, steam trains and the many railway preservation blogs are a significant part of my daily/weekly read. I don’t live near a preservation railway and the regular posts are a way of keeping up-to-date and […]
