The Number 25

A few more from practicing with the new digital compact. I’ve now worked out how to show the focus point in the optical viewfinder but still can’t see if the subject’s sharp or not until I check the file. It is progress I suppose, but no doubt the battery will expire even sooner.

I took these yesterday, when London had quite a bit of really bright, low sun burning through the mist. I shot a few from bus windows travelling down the Kingsland Road in Hackney and more on foot as I walked from Spitalfields to Soho through The City.

The girl with no shoes was a good start and I and I always stop if I see bomb damage from The Blitz (or a dog on a bike). Oxford Circus at dusk is usually impressive and I was lucky with the bus heading towards it as I think about pictures for our Christmas card.

Welsh walkies

Rousham Roberts is not a walkie firm I’d heard of, but they were busy in the spa town of Llandrindod Wells for nearly 100 years. You can read more about them on the site.  The example of their cards shown here was kindly supplied by the local museum.

Abbey Road, 1969 album by The Beatles

In August 1969, Iain Macmillan shot the photo that would become the cover of Abbey Road, the Beatles‘ 11th (and last) studio album. Abbey Road was first album ever to omit the artist and title from the cover — a photographer’s dream: the cover consisted of the photo, the whole photo, and nothing but the photo. Macmillan had just 10 minutes to shoot the photograph — standing on a step ladder while a policeman stopped traffic.

Besides John, barefoot Paul, George, and Ringo, the photo included two notable features. The first was the white VW beetle on the left with license plate number LMW 281F. After Abbey Road’s September 1969 release, the car’s license plate was repeatedly stolen by souvenir seekers. The second notable feature was Paul Cole, the man standing in the mid-right-hand portion of the photo — an American tourist who had no idea he’d ended up in the shot until the album came out.

Interesting background about the photo and fantastic group/album!

These are drawings I have done of toes or feet. The colourful one is in oil pastel and linseed oil, and the other is pencil. My blog address is: http://ihstaton.wordpress.com/. I have to admit that in the pencil one I have focused a little more on the foot than on all five toes.

This photograph was taken by me. The original photographs, of the actual Sadhu, were taken by Alex Ekins, who I have met a few times. He went to Nepal and, with their permission, took photographs of the Sadhu with a white backdrop. He has then printed them up life size and pasted them around the city. He is a very established photographer and his site has some fantastic work featured on it.

Hanbury Street Mural

On a very quick dash through Brick Lane and its side streets, the other day, I took a few snaps of this fantastic mural on Hanbury Street. The bunny-like character on the left and second from the right is by Alex Face, the fox is by Mau Mau and the bird is by Bon.

Bon has very cleverly incorporated the piece by Roa on the adjacent wall, making it look as if his bird is holding on to Roa’s bird.
