Misty Morning Through The Window

Misty Morning Through The Window

Misty Morning Through The Window, What do you do when you are not able to get out of the house and photograph? Easy, get the camera out of the bag, put on a long lens and see what you can find on a misty morning through the window. That’s what I did this morning anyway and I’m quite happy with the results.

Social Media – Friend or Demon?

When you have the rug pulled from under you like many photographers and I just have after the crushing announcement that G+ is to close for good next year, you can be forgiven for thinking of all social media platforms as a bit of a demon, I certainly did and I was ready to leave the lot for good a few weeks ago. How dare Google delete all those friendships forged over the years and all the days of your […]
