  2. Strange to see so may TV antenna’s – how things change where the ordinary becomes extra-ordinary.

    • Changing the ordinary has been a theme in art since we started painting on cave walls.

  12. I really like your words ‘colour, the native medium of digital photography’ I remember the excitement of so many years ago when colour photography became more accessible to the home photographer and how my elders enjoyed taking Kodak colour slides.

    • In the fine art community digital color prints are widely accepted, but digital black and white is not. The b&w conversions you have seen over the last week or two were initially done last year when I was trying to learn how to do them. They were recently updated and are popular with internet viewers. Since the start of this year I have been doing over 90% color.

      • The b&w conversions are very fine but for some of the Italian photos I prefer the colour because of the warmth it conveys.

        • I don’t really know, but I try to keep the photography engaging and different from what most others do.
