¿Whats this iPod Shuffle set all about? Read about it here


"Rome Wasn't Built in a Day" is a song by an English group Morcheeba released in 2000 as the first single off their third studio album Fragments of Freedom. The song is the group's biggest hit in the United Kingdom, where it peaked at number 34 in 2000. The song reached number two in New Zealand.


At some point in the mid-1990s, the Godfrey brothers (DJ Paul Godfrey and multi-instrumentalist Ross Godfrey) recruited Skye Edwards as vocalist, during a chance meeting at a party in which both brothers were introduced to Edwards. This led to the formation of Morcheeba.


The band's debut album, Who Can You Trust? was released on China Records in April 1996 and fitted smoothly into the then-modish trip hop genre, with instrumentation based predominantly around Rhodes piano, electric guitar and DJ scratching, with the songs carried by Edwards' relaxed soul-styled vocals.


The follow-up, 1998's Big Calm, moved slightly away from trip-hop towards a more pop-oriented, song-based sound. This was exemplified by the band's remaking of "Moog Island" (a song from the previous album) in a more summery, upbeat style, with the new title of "The Music That We Hear". One of the album's singles, "The Sea", became a hit and a radio favourite. The album proved to be a big seller and ensured Morcheeba's success as a breakthrough act.


In 1998, Morcheeba collaborated with Hubert Laws to record for the Red Hot Organization's compilation album Red Hot + Rhapsody, a tribute to George Gershwin, which raised money for various charities devoted to increasing AIDS awareness and fighting the disease.


In 2000, Morcheeba released their third album, Fragments of Freedom. This repeated the sales success of Big Calm but received a less positive critical response. The band's fourth album, Charango, was released in 2002, and spawned several singles including "Otherwise," "Way Beyond," and "Undress Me Now". In an indication of what would follow, several tracks on the album did not feature Edwards, and were instead written with and sung by Lambchop's Kurt Wagner or by emcees Pace Won and Slick Rick.


Rome wasn't built in a day is a way of saying "It takes a long time to create something complicated or impressive". No-one can argue with the impressiveness of Rome or how complicated it can be to cross the road in town. Its one of my favourite cities.

Point and shoot photography. Not much technique involved in this shot.

You may think I'm arrogant but truth is I had to reach far side of headland before sun rises.

So hurriedly dropped tripod onto the sand and started shooting.

It’s compulsory to see this Large and listening to Into Dust .


Not quite the shot i planned to post today, I chickened out of that one. But anycheese I like this one despite the undramatic skies. What the hell attracts me to these misty water shots anyway?? I am stuck in the 80’s?? I think not... I’m a 00’s (naughties) man!! This isn’t about mystical, fluffy stuff...this is about the downfall of humanity, our ignorance, and our hypocrisy. It’s about the tipping point of climate change that I feel we have jumped over with both feet.... (*such a cheery chap)


Well, I’m off to burn some fossil fuels on my trip down to Devon. Hmmm.... hypocrisy.


A bon weekend to all. It’s a bank holiday! Enjoy.

Seen on the point Saint-Hernot, the peninsula of Crozon, Brittany France

There's something about this one that please me, i feel a connection between the castle and the tree and the clouds, they've all seen it all before.


It's a similar composition to a recent single frame shot (see comments), but the vertical panorama (vertorama) changes the balance of the composition, and makes the castle less of a focal point.

This is an image from Wailea Point in South Maui. I liked the way the rocks lead out to the ocean and also the way the light reflected off the rocks in the foreground. I hope you enjoy.


Thanks for looking and all the feedback !!

Enjoy your day....

We cling to our own point of view, as though everything depended on it. Yet our opinions have no permanence; like autumn and winter, they gradually pass away.

(Quote from the Zhuangzi, an ancient Chinese collection of stories and anecdotes)


Enhanced with touches of textures by Susan Weller, Flypaper and Parée Erica. The birdies have flown in from Cheryl Tarrant.

When we arrived at Neist Point the sun was setting slowing, and strolled around for a good composition Found this rock and shot (or fired) my first bracketing set, profiting from the golden light. Was already happy with this one, so I strolled a light further (strolling is a big word, fighting the wind which was luckily blowing from the sea) to find a good vantage point for a panorama with a sunset on the right.

Technical stuff:

Exposure: 1/6 sec sec at f/8,0 at 0 EV

Taken with: Nikon D800, Nikon 24-120 f4 at 26mm

Levels layer on sky to balance it with the rest

high pass sharpening on the rocks

Cropped to sqaure in Lightroom for more impact and less rock on the left
