#878. Summer in Scotland

By paulperton | 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. This is (I think) our sixth visit and the fishing remains difficult and for reasons unknown, not very productive. No matter. I have a camera(s) with me and can […]

#857. Afrika Burn 2019

By paulperton | Travel Photography

  Last year’s Afrika Burn was my first. A second Burn this year leaves me something of a vet(eran) and able to skip the intro, which I’m sure you read avidly this time last year.   Once again, I managed the rock strewn road up from Ceres and back without a tyre blow-out, a well […]

By paulperton | Monday Post , Uncategorized

  Two days running I’ve received pre-release announcements from software companies making post processing applications for photographers.   The first came yesterday, with On1’s blare about its upcoming 2019.5 release and this morning, I found an e-mail from Skylum, trumpeting its latest Luminar AI-based wonder.   On1’s Photo RAW has progressed from its early, under-powered, […]

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 paulperton | 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 […]

#805. What’s in my bag? Part 2

By paulperton | Review

So. I’m going out to wander the streets. I want to disappear, so as to be able to get the shots I want. Unlike many street photographers, I don’t want my subject(s) to see me. I think capturing a posed image is (in the main) not really the essence of the photography I want to […]
