I just paid a visit (another one) to the pages of Ronald Rockman on RB (you must all go and have a look!!!)
His aerial photography reminds me of the works by the world renowned photographer Jann Arthus-Bertrand His book titled “The Earth From The Air” is an absolute “must see” compilation of unbelievable photos and incredible commentary.
See if your local Library has a copy… you WILL NOT be disappointed! I have my own copy which was not cheap… but frequently revisit the book and am in awe every time.
It is book that is bigger than many atlases and has around 150 double page spreads that are awesome and many single page photos… over 190 in all.
The ISBN no of the book is 0-500-01955-X. Do not pass up the opportunity to see this book.
His website is also worth visiting… it is at http://www.yannarthusbertrand.com/index_new.htm
I encourage you all to pay a visit and I would absolutely love to hear any comments and feedback from anyone who visits the site or sees the book… Please make any comments as an “add on” to this entry to the RB site. I look forward to them all!!!
PS… I know there are a number of fellow RB participants in Adelaide and its environs. Perhaps we can organise a gathering at some time to have a chat, compare notes etc. I am 240 kms away, but travel to Adelaide every month or so… I look forward to the opportunity!!!… How about a photo taking journey around the streets and/or parks of Adelaide and a gathering at some cafe or pub afterwards???
…and I can bring “The Earth From The Air” with me if you wish!!!
