I was going back through my photographic archives today and came across a portrait of my wife’s stepgrandfather, Oscar, that I shot just before he passed on late last year. He lived all his life in La Louvière: an industrial city in the south of Belgium. He was a character, as you can hopefully ascertain from my portrait. R.I.P. my friend.
Don’t forget – get your entries in before the 3 December. This world-renowned award competition has rapidly become the reference for the mobile photography fraternity. Quality prizes and judges.
One of my favourite photo apps for iPhone is called AutoStitch Panorama from Cloudburst Research. While the iOS 6 version of iPhone/iPad has this feature built in – using the app on the older models can result in some interesting and unexpected effects. Below is a series of panoramas that I’ve put together over the past couple of years. Hope you like the series of images – and should you like one of the images enough to want a pristine print on your wall, please write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll chat about print sizes, prices and shipping arrangements. Thank you for your visit.

Sometimes social media runs roughshod over social justice. Sometimes not. A court case puts the ‘right’ back into copyright.
Does anybody look their best after a shower? I will never understand why dog/cat food manufacturers and their creative agencies rarely explore campaigns that recognise the ‘laugh out loud’ fun of being a pet owner. Pets are hilarious. Marketing mangers less so. Click on the link for some more canine indignity.
