    That gave me a good chuckle, after some mad city-centre shopping! Cheers, Oly

    RovingMike Crucifixion's a doddle...

    My fave would probably be this, taken in Bergamo one night. Originally I foolishly corrected the verticals, but this is as shot, turned to mono and I much prefer it.

    Well, I've hardly had time for photography this year what with a sick elderly father, a house to refurbish, and much longer hours at work and commuting. Cricket has been about the only time I've had a chance to get the thing out (as it were). I can't decide, so I'll put the other one up elsewhere. BTW, Photobucket always used to be nice to use, but now it's awful, and constipates my computer any time it is open - are they trying to drive away the non-payers? In fact, it's so sh*t today I'm just going to link the file from my desktop!

    Difficult to choose one but this was one of the first street portraits I took this year. So for that, I've gone with it as my favourite.

    Difficult. I choose this one because I like the facial expression of the guy nearest the water and I know what comes next. His expression two frames later is stoic. This was the first visit to the Lee Valley whitewater centre and it was a grotty day weatherise and I only had a 70-200 lens with me but it was good fun and I definitely want to go back with a 300 mm and when the sun is shining.

    Hi Zou, I watched all the videos just before Christmnas but it's only now I've managed to get back in front of the PC! Three of the photographers I knew already - Nobuyoshi Araki, Daido Moriyama and Eikoh Hosoe - I've had Moriyama's Phaidon 55 book from 2001, back in the days when I shot film and had a penchant for gritty, grainy black & white prints ! The other photographers were interesting (and I'd probably have liked them more 15 years ago when b&w photojournalism was my thing, these days I tend to be seeking out photographers who work mostly in colour for my inspiration) The only two who did absolutely nothing for me were Sohei Nishino who just seemed a bit of an obsessive, not a bad thing in photography but his end results all looked a bit samey to me and Tomoko Sawada who just annoyed the life out of me, in the same way Cindy Sherman does :(

    I would have to say my favourite was also my hardest pic to get, the fact its on a restricted military site and on a bog made it particularly memorable!!

    Bit late to the thread (as usual)
    It was a traumatic year one way or another and in September Mrs S's daughter got married. She had a professional photographer for the wedding and as I'd not long had my hernia op went lightweight.
    This I shot with my Pentax QS-1 and I'm fairly certain I like it.

    I see flickr has bodged it slightly(!) but I think you understand
