He tells me that photographers actually like bad weather as it provides interesting lighting conditions. Personally I’ll swap ‘interesting’ for ‘boring’ lighting conditions any day. Perhaps that’s why I’m a rubbish photographer and always like it when people send me their good stuff…
A vague thought is brewing at the back of my mind. I get sent all kinds of fantastic photos (and the odd art work) by local artists – I wonder – would there be room in the cutthroat world of Photography for a Phantom Greenwich Picture Library?
I have no idea how to set one up (I’m not talking Flickr here – more like a real online clearing-house where local artists and photographers could lodge their work for hire) but – well – how hard could it be?
