Very pleased to have headed up this week’s selection of ‘Painterly Mobile Art Monday No. 22’ on Geri Centonze’s site with my Battle of Waterloo image. Nice selection of work and shows how versatile and creative mobile photographers can be with a variety of textural photo apps.

Every year, just down the road from where I live in Belgium, grown men and women dress up and play soldiers in a field outside the town of Waterloo. The Battle of Waterloo reenactment is an annual event that attracts thousands of participants and observers from France, Belgium, The Netherlands, Great Britain, Germany, Poland and Russia. It’s quite a sight. A photographer’s paradise in fact. The first panoramic photograph (posted below) looks orchestrated and art directed – but it isn’t. I couldn’t believe my good fortune when I spotted this group of off-duty warriors just sitting in their tent awaiting orders. It looked exactly like an 19th century military painting. Click.
