I keep seeing christmass things I don’t like, and some I do.
I like Santa made to look different

And I like pictures of greasy spoon cafe type scenarios


(Anyway, these are from his greasy spoon Christmas series, I like these I find them genuinely witty. Or do i find them a sad reflection of society, are they where we have been or where we are going. His other work is good to, like the ventriloquist series too, there’s a real undercurrent of evilness in ventriloquist dummies. Maybe it’s that film…….

Yeah that’s the one. I love the idea of a failed magician as much as the next man, especially if it was Paul Daniels. But one falling into the arms of madness whilst becoming a ventriloquist is especially appealing.)

Oh and I shouldn’t not include the truely shite……
500 photographers usually shows such inspiring stuff, truly great pictures, and then they come up with this shit……


I think there is more, so I shall add them in a short while

Well level five is truly underway now. We have our gallery project. We all have our jobs, well most of us, some have yet to find their place within the group.
I am one of the curators, and I will be responsible for the website. Which of course will take the form of a blog created on wordpress
There will be two event venues, although one has yet to confirm availability, so I hope we are not ahead of ourselves.
This should be interesting…….

Ok, I’m sick of them, everyone is sick of them. Fckn photo contests everywhere. People on Flckr feeling vilified because some random in New Jersey likes their stuff, or another random judging panel judging work they have no comprehension of. Even awarding shots awards that are exactly the same as pictures they had awarded in a competition they ran a few years before, (yes I’m still a little bitter about that one, but that’s what happens when people are slack and you run too many competitions, everyone is a winner baby!!) Anyway, back to what is happening right now, yes I entered a competition. Not because I’d heard of these guys before, not because I wanted to break into America or any kind of International market. No, for one real reason, these guys …… Pro-Imaging
They are a small collection of Professional Photographers, a principled bunch who can punch above their weight. They are on a campaign, The Bill of Rights . Read what it says, they are fighting for you, whether you are a pro or amateur.
Back to the point, vote for me. I’m here on their site. Vote for someone else though if you don’t like mine, as long as they get votes in it all helps I guess.
