I often wonder at what point you can break the rules? If you are new to photography, and don't adhere to the rule of thirds or other well-intended but unhelpful advice, it won't be long before someone from the camera club takes you aside and warns you about the errors of your ways.
So, at what point can you go your own way? No one will ever tell an established photographer that they have "broken the rules". At what point do they achieve this freedom from the norms?
Do your own thing and have confidence.
Em, what exactly is the collective noun? I guess it's too early yet for language to have innovated beyond the simple hashtag
There's nothing like railways for demonstrating simple perspective....
While having a sneaky mid-morning tapas in Tasca Romero this pleasing little arrangement caught my eye.
Ahh - the joys of simple pleasures. Cooling your feet during lunch
The 2014 European Athletics Championships are taking place in Zurich.
While out taking some photos of the men's 20km walk, I met a guy from Leeds, Yorkshire who was cheering on this young lad, Tom Bosworth. I said I'd pass on some photos, but our exchange of contact details was washed away in the soggy conditions. So anyway, here's a photo - hope you find it - cheers!
The sacred space of Sechselaeutenplatz has finally been refurbished, modernised, sanitised - whatever you want to call it. I was skeptical, being a purist, but I have to confess it's an interesting and somehow compelling space, while retaining it's original purpose.
Ok, This is supposed to be a photo blog from Zurich, but shucks, I have lots of good Zurich photos, but apparently I have more Venice photos.
For a few years, during the development of the new cross-city rail transit, the front of Zurich's main station has been covered by building works, cabins, scaffolding, etc. Now, as work enters a new phase, the obstructions have been removed, and the main hall of the station (the Bahnhofhalle) is once again bathed in cathedral-like light.
The concourse is kept totally free to enable the regular markets and events that take place here. This in turn makes it a great stage for photography.
Prompted by the gift of a Berengo-Gardin book some weeks ago, I decided to flaunt some of my own photos.
I may have posted some of these before....
