My Photography Skills

This is where I live........enough said! I didnt even edit any colours in this picture, it actually was a perfect day!

My Photography Skills

When I took this picture, I was just really backing my point up about how people can view things so differently......this is how i viewed something so common as barbed wire!

My Photography Skills

Love the colours in this picture and is pretty scary looking! 

My Photography Skills

When I took this picture I was just sat smoking on a bench, I flicked my fag and just watched it smoke away, I had my camera with me so I just photographed it, for no reason at all really, I didnt intend to use the picture, it was just random,just a fag! But it was this picture that made me realise why I love photography so much, and thats because......
You could give one hundred people the same object....as simple as a cigerette, and the same camera,same environment, same everything, but I think I could guarantee that everyone of those one hundred pictures taken would be different, because everyone has their own perspective and everyone views the world differently.
And this is mine!
So something as simple,generic,boring,congenial or completely rubbish to you, may be viewed by someone else differently and may make something you found... well... s**t! ......quite beautiful!

My Photography Skills

I dont even know what inspired me to take this, I think maybe I was feeling down? It seems depressive! But I love it! becasue even though I have no story behind it what so ever, to someone who didnt know that, there could be any meaning to it! Everytime I look at it I always think of someone whos died in love? I dont know why,i guess anyone can interpret it how they like! i just find it eery!

My Photography Skills

Again this is taken where I live, im pretty lucky having views like this practically on my back door, but as ive said I love atmospheric photography and its generally what i try to capture when im out with my camera!

My Photography Skills

In my spare time I try my hand at photography, I really love atmospehric photography but I took this picture in my home town and was so pleased with it, I think its so beautiful and even though where I live is pretty mundane, when your there infront of a view like this.....its pretty amazing! And moving to a city really makes you appreciate things like this

1990's - Design in Context

So what was big in the nineties?

Well there were sheep,sheep were big in the nineties......well in this case it was dolly the sheep
of course! Friends was massive and almost as massive as the craze for the Rachel Green haircut! Pokemon and tamagitchi's or infact any japaneese cartoon/toy seemed popular at the time, Grunge and music originating in seatle hit the scene, politics....blah blah when are threy not in your face! every decade politics will have made some impact for better or worse! In this case ive used part of the speech Bush gave on new world order .....hhhm...profound! oh and there's  Jeff Buckley.....I just wanted him in there because I love him, Music was pretty good, Counting Crows,Blink, Nivarna and Pearl Jam. Films were amazing in the nineties Pulp Fiction, The mummy,The matrix which was pretty much revolutionary in the film industry and probably most importantly, the interent became bigger and better!  So there we go, a brief view of the nineties!
