Re: Ralph Gibson: an exhibition of his work

Re: Recommended reading

I gave up Photoshop two years ago in favour of Affinity Photo and have never regretted the move. I’m about £200 ahead and saving £10 a month. The main thing however is that AP does everything I...

Re: Little black number with a red carnation...!

Looked up the link and reminded of Coleman’s Balls. The one I specifically remember was at one of the Olympics when Coleman said during an 800 metre race something like “Juantarina is pounding up...

Re: Little black number with a red carnation...!

Re: Panasonic 100-400 Photo Show saga. Buyers warning.

While it's prudent in this day and age to be cautious, I can think of a shedload of good reasons why a lens repairer would want to operate from home. A few years ago, I ran for a train, the zip on...

Re: Street Photography by Nick Turpin

I watched the Turpin video and so wish that I hadn’t wasted my time. Where was the mood of the street? There we had a plain hoarding, the Tower and a guy recumbent looking at his smart phone. I...
