Exhibition: Enclosures: memories and decay

There is an exhibition of my work entitled, ‘Enclosures: memories and decay’ running at the ‘Month of Sundaes’ in Uppermill (Oldham) until 29th Feb 2012.

Enclosures are a significant feature of the Western European landscape and they represent a relationship between people and the land. They often serve a symbolic as well as functional purpose. However, enclosures are rarely permanent and they are subject to the vagaries of the weather and vicissitudes of time. One of the major influences on the landscape of the United Kingdom was the Enclosure Acts which were a series of Acts passed by Parliament. The Acts were responsible for enclosing land which had previously been open fields or common land. The majority of enclosures were carried out between 1760 and 1850 when…

Riseart???

Hi Everyone,
I just received a bubble mail from someone called Sophie at Riseart … basically the mail was asking me to submit a portfolio to them which they would review and, if appropriate, market through their website.

Being of a naturally suspicious nature I wanted to check out if a) Has anyone else has received a similar email from Riseart, and b) Does anyone out there know anything about Riseart? Is it legit or some kind of scam??

Thanks

Dave

Last day in India!

Well … been here for a couple of weeks now … mostly taken up with work related stuff, but did find a little time to take a few snaps. I have to confess I was not ready for the culture shock that hit from the moment we got off the plane in Ahmedabad. Before we got to customs there was a check for swine flu (H1N1) Checking for H1N1 involved several stages:
1 Complete a form reporting any signs or symptoms (this could be done on the plane)
2 On landing one uniformed official asked for your age (even though the form required you to fill in your date of birth) wrote it on the form and passed it back to you
3 You then queued to be seen by one of three ‘medics’ (well they all wore face masks, so I guess they were medics) who checked the form, looked at you and gave the form …

Gonna be away for a couple of weeks

Hi … Thanks to everyone who has been looking at and commenting on my pics .. it is always appreciated when you take the time to look and comment.

If there’s anyone who has been to India before and has any tips please let me know!!
Thanks

Taking photos

HI folks .. here’s a rambling journal entry reflecting on my recent trip to the big apple. I have been thinking about getting wide angle lens for quite while. Up to now most of my pics have been taken with the kit lens (18-50) that came with my trusty 400D. When I knew I was going to be going to New York, with all its fabulous buidlings, it gave me the nudge to splash out on a wide angle. I ended up getting a Canon 10-22 …. cost me more than the camera! It is really taking me quite a while to get used to it … when I’ve been using the 18-50 I am able to visualise the shot in my mind before I take it, but I am still struggling to do that with the 10-22. Maybe it will happen over time. So I was wondering whether or not other people have experienced similar problems w…
