1968 Volkswagen Beetle: A Design Classic

Recently spotted during the mini heatwave, parked outside a local pub. The engine is air-cooled but the owner obviously needed liquid cooling.

Beautiful colour, good condition, lovely maroon leather interior, and the retro roof-rack is a nice finishing touch.

A design classic.

SB_20131205_0005_colour_webTrying out the Voigtlander 15mm f/4.5 on a Leica M9. Well-built, sharp, tiny lens. Small issue of edge colour casts when shooting this on the M9 but that can hopefully be fixed with software. Maybe a little too wide for my liking but great for dramatic landscapes.

Final Project: Landscapes?

I am now entering the final phase of the MA in Photojournalism & Documentary Photography. The final project will run from now (April) until mid – end November. Thats roughly six and a half months. It seems like a lot of time, but this is no time to get complacent.

I have been thinking what subject to explore / investigate for the final project. Initially I thought I would like to do something along the lines of Alec Soth’s photography. Wikipedia describes his work as cinematic in feel with elements of folklore: Nice description.

There are so many things to think about: timeframe, cost, accessibility, equipment, to name a few.

Alternatively, I have been thinking of doing a set of landscapes on a particular stretch of land near where I live. I’m just wondering how I can tie in the two ideas together?

Answer: more research and much thinking.
