Welcome to the 27th edition.
There is a pdf continuing with the issues of copyright faced by British photographers.
The above pictures were taken at Stow Maries WW1 Aerodrome in the English county of Essex. The buildings have been left derelict since 1918 when the war ended. They are not only fascinating decaying structures but steeped in history. It is easy to imagine the pilots getting ready before they set off to defend London from attacks by the German Zeppelin. The trip was arranged by garden photographer Miriam Heppel and I am grateful to her for allowing me the opportunity to participate. The two clips below are worth watching as they both show examples of great photographers being curious about what others discard or miss. Andre Kertez and Richard Avedon are visionaries and you will only need to watch each one for a minute or two to apprecitae the difference between looking and seeing.
There are many tributes paid to Tim Hetherington and others who lost their lives recently. http://photojournalismlinks.com/2011/04/21/in-memoriam-tim-hetherington-1970-2011-chris-hondros-1970-2011/
I felt this was worthy of note.
Like all artists I want to cheat death a little and contribute something to the next generation
