It really is a worldwide fashion now, nearly every city has it going on. Hipsters, artist communities, reused industrial spaces, massive facial hair, old fashioned bicycles, street art, archaic time consuming hobbies, lovingly brewed craft beers, reclaimed building materials… Hackney Wick has one of the best examples and they throw a very eclectic yearly festival, of course.

While travelling through Norway’s Fjords, on the Hurtigruten in 2011, I made massive panoramic images. Most were photographed using a Carl Zeiss wideangle lens and stitched using Hugin. I will be exhibiting wall size prints in London.These are all published at 25% of full resolution and are available for any purpose, contact me if you would like to license them.

Livissi, now known as Kayaköy, was an important Greek village in western Lycia, situated just a few miles south of Fethiye in Turkey. Shown on maps from the 17th & 18th Centuries, the village was eventually abandoned at the end of the 1919-1922 Greco -Turkish War as part of a population exchange agreement. The village was intended to be repopulated by Turkish citizens who would relocate from Greece, this didn’t happen and in 1957 an earthquake damaged most of the remaining buildings. Today Kayaköy is a tourist attraction and museum, signposted as a ghost village. It also is the unofficial start point of the Lycian Way, an ancient walkway along the coast of Turkey, the official start of the marked trail being a few miles further south in Ölüdeniz.

This ship holds the record for fastest sailing between Hamburg and Chile via Australia. Krusenstern, originally named Padua, was surrendered to the USSR after World War II as a war reparation and subsequently named after Estonian born, Baltic German, Adam Johann Ritter von Krusenstern, an Admiral and explorer in the Russian Imperial Navy who led the first Russian circumnavigation of the globe.

Rolling Stones :: Hyde Park :: July 6th, a set on Flickr.

For the past few years I’ve enjoyed the summer concerts in Hyde Park from outside the event fence, usually among a big crowd of people loving the weather and the free music from acts such as The White Stripes, Blur and Daft Punk.

Last Saturday’s show by the Rolling Stones drew the biggest crowd I’ve seen there by far. The PA was a little louder than usual and from the front gate you can see the screens. It is down the west side of the fence where the sound is best this year though, the stage is facing towards the sunset and the speakers are not far from the boundary. The crowd had such a good atmosphere and I would definitely recommend going down this coming Saturday if you want to catch a free Stones gig.
