I am an engineer. My freshman year in college, we were required to take a course called “English for Engineers”. I know that sounds like an oxymoron (see how I worked in a big word there), because technical people tend not to be able to express complex ideas in simple, easy to understand words.The same could be said for just about every profession or hobby. We live in a world with our own vernacular – which makes perfect sense to us, but may sound like Klingon to an outsider.When... continue reading

Well, it's about time that I showed you another five photos that I think stand out from the crowd.This group differs from the previous ones just a little, as it has a black and white photo included. Black and white tends to get a little overlooked these days but can be very striking when done well.One other thing about these photos is that they don't really need any further explanation, they speak for themselves. Of course, this is just my opinion and we all have different tastes and perceptions.... continue reading
Some of you might have seen an earlier blog about photos that, for me, stood out in some way. Bettina (Bwagner656) pointed out that the majority had contrasting colours, which, when I looked back was right and yet at the time of posting, I hadn't realised. Since then, when I've been out with the camera, I've tried to look for colourful contrasts and so far, it's been more difficult than I thought. I'm still quite new to photography, so it's a case of trying to look at everything differently and not... continue reading

I know others will not agree with these choices but it's about that initial reaction. Anyway, here are some of those photos that (to me) have made me think "I wish I'd taken that"... continue reading
