Oh No He Has Created Another Group *"Unwanted Abandoned And Worth Saving!

Greetings All !

Recently i attempted to add some HDR images to a group on Abandoned Buildings only to be told that group didnt accept HDR photography. So what better thing to do than create a group that is not biased against any particular photographic tecnique.

With a love of old buildings , that should be protected and the appreciation of communities thatt protect these wonderful buildings from times gone by.

And the beauty and mood of buildings that have sat neglected and unloved , what better idea than create a group that highlights this subject

This group is to feature work from empty buildings or buildings in threat of being lost forever, either by development or neglect.

The range of buildings can include, Hospitals,Asylums,Mental Hospitals, Factories, mansions,theatres,auditori…

*Milestone - 75,000 Views !*

It amazes me how some shots take off with a life of their own in RB, Masters Paintbrush -Newport was originally taken because i never go anywhere without my camera.. And when you take Landscapes you always seem to be checking weather and clouds and light for that hint of pink and the light just in the right spot.

So for all those who have favourited ,viewed and commented , many thanks for giving this work 3307 views,186 comments and 87 favouritings since it was uploaded on 4th August 2008!

And the many groups hosts who have featured it

Art Deco was a popular international design movement from 1925 until 1939, affecting the decorative arts such as architecture, interior design, and industrial design, as well as the visual arts such as fashion, painting, the graphic arts and film. This movement was, in a sense, an amalgam of many different styles and movements of the early 20th century, including Neoclassical, Constructivism, Cubism, Modernism, Bauhaus, Art Nouveau, and Futurism. Its popularity peaked in Europe during the Roaring Twenties1 and continued strongly in…

Red Bubble T-Shirts Help In Unexpected Ways

You all know we need more buyers, in here so I decided to do my part and bought some t- sirts stating “Photographer – Find Me At Red Bubble”

Well ive found that these not only get people to ask what is a Red Bubble And what do you do with it ?

But from a photographers view I found some unexpected benefits

1. When youre at large events, people get out of your way , lol thinking that youre Official" … well who am I to Argue ?

2. People Do Not get in youre way …. well the majority o the time

3. When your out and about , quite often your knowledge of the are is limited. Ive found the T-shirts help because the locals point you to special places the tourist don’t kmow about.

AND AFTER ALL IT BENEFITS MEMBERS SELLING T-SHIRTS AND GETS RED BUBBLE OUT THER…

Just posted a suggestion to RB

Just a suggestion rather than waiting to the last moment, is it possible to get the template updated for 2009.

My reasoning is that we got the template available rather late in 2007, which put a pressure not only on members to get their act together but also REd Bubble and their printers to rush the work for printing and delivery.

By having the template available early, less pressure on members, printers and red bubble. ALso we can have stocks available before christmas resulting in more sales, and giving as xmas gifts, we also have more selling time before the year expires and the new arrives

also would be great to have calendars availble on RB to sell to the public
