. . . . . . . . . .

for a couple of hours on sunday morning, the sun was shining. if you live in london, then you surely understand how momentous it felt.

and if you do nothing else today, please read this short essay called “photography is easy, photography is difficult.”  i’ve been thinking about it constantly.

    I understand your feeling (frustration) as yesterday when we woke up and while having breakfast, we made plans to take our son to the Zoo but then again, clouds covered the sky and rain payed us a visit in the afternoon …
    No Zoo, no pics of my son with the monkeys … just another ordinary Sunday !

    Like your blog and your photography !

    Cheers … Pablo

    Not wishing to rub it in, but we had sunshine most of the weekend in Edinburgh…and today too to boot! Amazing but true…

    These are great incidentally…particularly enjoying the top one.

    wasn’t it glorious!
    although of course by the time i got it together to get out of the flat, it had started p*ssing down with rain!

    yey sunshine. it makes such a difference. I love the muted colours on this picture, it´s so beautiful. I love your coloured pictures, they are amazing. and that 1962 set on Flickr, wow, thanks.

    Lovely essay, though I only disagree on one point. Photograhy is never done, finished or complete. And that’s the draw.
