By pascaljappy | News

Every other year, Aubagne (in the Provence area of France, and a stronghold of clay-based arts and crafts) hold Argilla, Europe’s largest congregation of potters, raku artists, ceramists … This year’s edition is currently being held in the city streets, from which all traffic has been diverted. It is a glorious festival of creativity, heat […]

#27. Thames Industrial Sepia

By pascaljappy | News

One of the many features encountered along the Thames Walk between the Thames Barrier and Greenwhich is a gravel/tarmac factory that loudly crunches stones into powder, separating gravel sizes in various heaps and delivering its produce to nearby ships via elaborate pipes and belts. The whole caboogle is very geometrical and graphical. And dusty. I […]

#26. New York Subway

By kimhurel | News

              La  fréquentation du métro est pour moi un passage obligé dans la visite d’une métropole. Alors que celui de Paris relève de la contrainte ou du gain de temps, j’aime observer les gens, comprendre leur quotidien. Quel meilleur espace d’observation ! Même chose pour les bus… et vous […]

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 […]

#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. […]
