Taken early one autumn morning in Richmond park (london's biggest and best park). I had been stalking these guys every morning due to the rut and the mists. The sun was coming up behind them, backlighting the leaves and mists.

If you are stuck for ideas for presents this Christmas, why not take a look at my NEW print sales website on Smugmug? As well as the printing being of higher quality (they use Loxley Colour print specialists) than before, the print site is vastly improved for better viewing and usability.


For international deliveries outside of the UK please contact me directly and I can order for you from Smugmug's US print partners. This will cut the cost of delivery for US customers.


I was in Florence to attend a course about access and usability in digital preservation, so I had time to capture the beauty of the city only by night and before dawn - however, this is when one can find the city free of tourists... :-)

This is a night view from Belvedere Fort, well high above the city (this view is a bit zoomed, so the perception of the elevated point of view is altered). The uproar of the teeming crowd of the tourists becomes a barely audible buzz here: history and beauty have the floor, and one can listen to what they care to whisper to the wind of the night.

From Baker Beach on the Presidio of San Francisco, the iconic Golden Gate Bridge provides an architectural counterpoint to the natural beauty of the Marin Highlands.


Constructed in just over four years, the bridge became the first permanent connection between San Francisco and the surrounding communities in 1937. It was a herculean effort to design and complete a structure that could endure the high winds and maintain usability of the 370' deep channel into the bay.


Today, it is one of the most famous architectural structures, and probably the most photographed bridge in the world.

China, Guangxi

Residents of Zhaoxing and villages in Guangxi have no heating and no water in their wooden houses. To heat themselves, they make fires in bowls. At home or sometimes in the street. Or, they will warm up and have tea under the drum towers. The advantage is the usability

Although this picture - even for those who know the location - might just look like a tunnel going through the Frankfurt Train Station Car Park - there's more to the picture than meets the eye. It is a little known fact, that the car park under the Frankfurt Central Train Station was indeed built in the 1970's with the intention of having the dual purpose of acting as a (nuclear) bunker. So this tunnel is actually a siphon/odor device. If you take a close look around the actual car park, you will see numerous signs pointing to the dual purpose character of the installation, heave airtight doors, airgates (Luftschleuses) and other untypical installations for a civil car park. Luckily the installation has never been put to test - and some doubt it's usability :-)

DAY 3 Usability rears its ugly head

Sometimes problems from the real world follow you into the digital world. Here the doorway is so narrow, the controls so clumsy I have real trouble getting in through the door.


I went here becuase there was the greatest concentration of people that I could find on the map. It turned out to be people sitting down, backs to me playing at pokie machines. First encounter with an invisible avatar.
