Christmas Time

Well unbelievably its here again, I'm sure I only put the decorations away a few weeks ago! It has gone very cold here in Cornwall, but still no snow...Boooo! I'm not sure if I have ever been witness to a white Christmas in my 42 years! When was the last one in Cornwall? I find it sad that my Christmas spirit has gone. Don't get me wrong I love Christmas but as I get older that feeling of calm and delight seems to have eluded me! I even went to a carol service but that didn't work! I think next year I'm going to go to Lapland and find my Christmas!

Anyway enough of me! How about all of my followers, yes that's you folks, what are you all doing this festive season?

The World of Steampunk: Goggles, Gaiters & Glory

There are two main kinds of steampunk. The first, which shall be called here, traditional steampunk, envisions a future as the Victorians imagined it. The writings of H.G. Wells and Jules Verne are good examples. The second, industrial steampunk, sees a far future world that harkens back to Victorian culture, for example a bustle dress made of kevlar. There are also other temporal options like clockpunk (c. 1500s) and dieselpunk (WWII).

I just love the whole idea and the amazing design used, the goggles shown here are great, but I thinks its really cool having a complete costume, very MadMax.

Your view

What is contraversial photography? Well i'm interesteted in your view. I want to know what makes a picture contraversial, is it taboo subjects, or are they shocking images as were taken by Oliverio Toscani for Benetton? Throughout history many images have been slammed, banned, and caused outrage by why?

Ready for Battle

To think Henry the eighth sat in this castle in Falmouth UK. It has a real feeling of history, The only thing is it's rubbish. They have plastic people....actually badly made plastic people with cannon soundtrack. Come on Pendennis make this naff effort worth visiting. The history is there so take advantage of it.

An interesting blog

I found this blog which, if you're a photographer you may find of interest. It's a blog about Strobists which is basically take high quality photographs using only flashguns instead of high end studio lights. One great pioneeer of this style is Joe Mcnally, check him out on google. But in the mean time take a look at this blog...Very interesting!

Hello All

Sorry folks, i've not had much time to blog recently. I am working on a set of eight prints for a gallery, but you know what it's like you start then your mmod changes then the 1st pictures arn't good enough, so it goes on. I'm also working on a personal project in film with my trusty Rolleiflex. Also doing my college summer project, but never fear I will be posting pictures again very soon. Here's a bit of fun I created for a friend of mine!
