Blurb: Mr sAg by Simon Harrison
You will see from my 'stream that I don't have any (particular) style...I like all kinds of photography from street, landscape and abstract to black and white (particularly black and white), architecture and fine art, and enjoy admiring photographs as much as I like taking and tinkering with them.
I do try to consider and compose most shots I am taking but some are admittedly just snapshots of things that make me smile or just a bit of fun (and some of my favourite shots are entirely accidental).
I hope that through time you will start to see a gradual improvement in my photography.
(i) 35mm f1.8
(ii) Macro Lens (60mm or 105mm)
This will inevitably change with time...but there will probably always be something on there.

I know these stats are distorted, ( and minuscule compared to some other peoples), but they are well above my usual figures. :-)
22/04/10: Strange day on the Flickr Stats front...viewings seem to have gone through the roof today, relatively speaking. A record 599 viewings in total for the day. The culprit would appear to be this photo which found its way on the Archidose blog front page...thanks whoever you may be!! :-)

"I think you have to start at the beginning of Simons Photostream and then slowly work your way to his current work to see how his eye and technique have developed over the last couple of years, I'm probably guilty of not faving and commenting enough but I always call by to see what images he creates, anyway there's enough folk out there who do all the comments....
So take time to look through his stream and see how he has come on from just taking photographs to creating Images, a difficult transition that a lot of photographers fail to acheive and one that Simon has done to great effect especially with his images from Central Manchester. I look forward to seeing how Simon develops his style and starts to look at new subject matter"
