First experiences with my new ultra-compact and ultra-light Ezybox Speed-Light softbox.
An eight minute ride across the River Thames in London... by cable car.
When we visited southern Germany in 2011, one of the places I wanted to see was the former Nazi Party rally ground on the outskirts of Nuremberg. The site is one of huge historic importance and although all of the identifying insignia have been absent for nearly seventy years, much of the foundations and layout of the rally ground still identifiably conform to the original architectural plans.
Swimming in the river at Bern in Switzerland.
Yesterday's free portrait and lighting workshop at the Rolex Learning Centre in Lausanne was an unmitigated success, with just the right amount of photographers taking part to allow everyone to make new friends, work well together, and come up with some great shots.
My first non-personal book is available for preview and purchase in my Blurb online bookstore.
I was at the Street Parade dance festival on the streets of Zurich again this past weekend. This first set of photos shows some of the participants of the floats, as they wait patiently to take their position in the parade which leads through the centre of the city.
(Post originally begun in 2011.) Along with most other households in Switzerland, I received a pre-printed flyer from the Schweizerische Volkspartei (SVP) at the end of last week. (Obivously the person delivering them didn't bother to check the name on the post box, in our case.) The flyer has been timed to coincide with the Swiss national day on Monday, and encourages Swiss nationals to join their crusade to limit or even eliminate the effect that foreigners have on Swiss life. I thought it'd be interesting to write about the concerns raised, from the point of view of a long-term resident.
