Arles, France

Still going through images from recent travels. It sometimes pays to leave them for a while, you see them with fresh eyes or in some cases for the first time.

This was taken in a gallery set up in a church. There were veils of chiffon hanging, so not wanting to miss an opportunity...

Berlin - Underground / Overground

Getting ready for my presentation on the 6th September at Brighton and Hove Camera Club means I have been going through quite a few photographs - and enjoying finding new images that have yet to be edited. Today I revisited the Berlin folder and found some new images from a city that never fails to inspire me.

Rencontres De La Photographie, Arles

With the FujiXT-1 the double exposure setting works like a film camera - the images have to be taken consecutively. However, unlike film cameras you can see a feint outline of the first image, then you superimpose the second. Of course the element of surprise is considerably less, but for me it's the thought process I enjoy and yes there are still some surprises when the image pops up onto the screen.

Feeling the heat in Arles, France

Seeking a little refuge from the heat in Arles, the Crypt below Place De La Republique offered some interesting photographic opportunities. Pitch black except for a few intermittent beams of sunlight from the square above posed a few challenges. Since I was there mainly to cool down, I wasn't holding out much hope on the photographic front. I began doing some of my double exposures that I love so much...

Hanging plan for my portfolio.

Fingers crossed I have successfully ironed out the social media glitches on my website and you will now have access to my blog.

It was requested that I post my Hanging Plan for my portfolio. So here it is.

With regards to the Hanging Plan, my idea of having 4 rows of 5 went out of the window as there is a max of 3 rows allowed. This format - 9 and 11 worked well for me, allowing 2 central images.
