Technology then and now:
Then:
This is the Werra.  The only camera to have been made by the renowned Carl Zeiss Jana lens maker and manufactured by the company from the early 50s.
Across a number of variants over half a million Werras were produced out of East Germany until the company decided to refocus on their core business of producing lenses.

Now:
This photograph of the Werra was taken today on the camera function of an iPhone 5c.  A truly impressivley sharp and well rendered image for a mobile device.

Train With a View 4 - River Dee:
Stuck on a long train journey as a beautiful sun set across the countryside of Wales and England was a bit frustrating for this photographer. Instead, I thought I’d ignore the internal reflections and use the window as a pictorial frame for this serious of rough-and-ready landscape grabs; and I’m glad I did.

I tell ya, shooting the moon is no easy feat. I’ve said it before. You’re shooting a miniscule host in the midst of a sea of darkness and yet the beggar burns bright as anything. For those that are interested in such details … this was a tripod mounted shot at 1/125, f5.4, ISO 100.

A London Pride 2014 couple take a pit-stop after a record breaking Pride Parade:
If an alien landed on earth yesterday and asked what all this Pride stuff was about, I would show him/her/it this picture and explain ‘it’s about a bit of flamboyance and a fair measure of camp, but at heart it’s about a minority saying … ‘this is who we are, and that happens to be gay, and that’s something we couldn’t be happier about.  So, please!  Come and join as we party!!
