#460. We take photographs, but we make art

By Paul Perton | Opinion

On occasion, I’ve been known to resemble Google’s StreetView avatar. Not for my girth – that’s something else entirely – but rather my regular and entirely circular changes of opinion pointing to post processing.   Casually viewing the pages of Flickr, 500px et al will set the tone; photographs of just about everything, everywhere.

#306. Early rising

By Paul Perton | Travel Photography

  Early morning, Shinjuku. Really early – 05:05 and I’m already on the streets.   Of course, I blame jetlag but the truth is that several decades of living in Africa have left their imprint; I sleep when it gets dark and wake as dawn arrives. At home, there’s always things to do. In a […]
