222/366 B&W Photography No 250

It’s Magazine Time again, issue 250 of B&W Photography turned up last week, and I have spent the last few days reading it with pleasure – I must admit I didn’t enjoy No. 249 as much as this one. Don’t know why.

There were several pieces, apart from the news and the general articles that I enjoyed reading this month. It’s interesting to discover how professional photographers have coped with the lockdown. Understandably some have not enjoyed it, but others have engaged in projects. Starting on Page 8, Alys Tomlinson describes the project “All Dressed up and nowhere to go” produced a series of pictures of students who would be missing out on their Prom, and demonstrating their strength and resilience as individuals.

It’s not often that B&W photography does not feature an article on Street Photography, this month’s is no different; Daydream Believer by Luc Korea’s takes us through the streets of New York. Whilst I am glad that Gosport is not as busy as that great city in the current circumstance, I really must look for more opportunities for street photography, I am sure they are there.

The article by Tim Daly “Forgotten Icons” is a walk through the sculptures and scenes of different locations. Politically sensitive; statues portraying literary giants, forgotten propaganda and a colonial past now mired in controversy – I really am not going to go there.

All of it made for a fascinating read.

I’m not going to leave today;’s piece without a comment on the iPhone. It has a feature called live on it’s camera, this takes a sequence of shots when you press the button, that makes the picture move very briefly when you view it. To be honest, I’ve never had much time for the feature, and the first thing I normally do is turn it off. Whoooo, how wrong am I? this feature has massive potential. Which I will try to use, and talk about in this weeks piece on Photography.

I just want to write, but I prefer to stay away from controversial topics like politics. I am happy to confess that at the moment, I am writing for me. If you enjoy my writings, and I hope you do then that is all the better.
