On Wednesday I go via my favorite form of public Transport (the Train) to Hereford. Now other than cows and a late goal by Ronnie Radford in the 1972 FA Cup at Home to Newcastle.

Photo tweet of the day: Katrin Koenning

Its interesting the way the horizon is totally level on the Pacific looking out over St. Kilda Beach, Melbourne, Australia. However its the to people whoContinue reading “Photo tweet of the day: Katrin Koenning”

A Tweet A Day: Martin Parr

http://events.magnumphotos.com/exhibition/praise-leisure?utm_source=feedburner&utm_medium=twitter&utm_campaign=Feed:+MagnumPhotosEvents+(Magnum+Photos+Events)&utm_content=Twitter This is a picture of Martin Parr‘s work that will be in the Brighton Biennial. Parr has become the king of the hard-hitting juxtaposition. For all the elegance of this image it still looks tacky. Do you feel the women is single is she waiting for her man. The lady in an evening dress wearing a sports watch. TheContinue reading “A Tweet A Day: Martin Parr”
