#865. What Camera should LdV get?

By Dallas Thomas | Opinion

The 2nd May 2019 marked the 500th anniversary of the death of one of the most multi talented people who has ever lived. He died at Château du Clos Lucé, Amboise, in France, and was often referred to as a Universal Genius. Yes, that’s a very bold statement, but consider this, he dabbled in, drawing, […]

#862. Fog, for fog’s sake.

By pascaljappy | Opinion

It’s your average morning. Bones still creaking, brain too lazy to clear breakfast from the dining table, let alone clean the cat’s offering / furball elimination. Catch your toe on a chair leg. Grumble tones, the usual. The phone rings. If it’s work, I’ll murder them. Turns out it ain’t, and I won’t.     […]

By Adrian | Opinion

Until recently the mobile phone market appeared to have no limit.  Worldwide sales continued to grow, and manufacturers fed consumers with a never ending array of “innovation” to tempt them to upgrade.  Strangely, as real innovation seemed to falter and everyone’s phone already had a big enough screen and enough storage and a battery that […]

Of necessity, this is a long post – lots of words, that is. You have my apologies up front and can do a TL:DR and scroll down to the photographic content should you want.   I’m pretty much off topic here, but hope you’ll bear with me – there are lots of photographs to see. […]

#828. Loving the smartphone more and more.

By pascaljappy | Opinion

The digitalisation benefits of smartphones have been covered often enough in my posts not to warrant going deep into them again. Always-with-you pocket convenience is great. Superb performance in appropriate conditions, also. But knowing your pics are being backed-up and organised as you shoot may be the most satisfying of the lot. So much so […]

#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 […]
