I wonder if wank notices each time he gets a pingback from here that it's referred to as 'wank'. *laughs*

Spent last night with some of Australia's print press shooters at the Nikon Walkley Press Photo Awards and only really found some of it inspiring. Not surprisingly, I discovered that those shots that did make me really stop in my tracks were shot on a film Leica. Portraits in warzones in black and white, ultra shallow DOF and sharp as a tack at the eyes. Last year's selection was quite a bit more interesting.


Damn, best cat shots i've ever seen, and the guy has some really damn good street shots too. Too bad Leica's contest's only for professional photographers tho,... ah, one day! :D
Also, this guy gives a whole new meaning to the words "shoot some photos"

Wonder how much traffic you give to the non working photos and wank. :)



Good to see you post again Chris.
Cant wait for your next blog with pictures :l

That cat looks like my fav cat breed, an Abyssinian. Good cat shots.


Thank you, Chris, for this post. I was delighted when I read the post about the cats and subscribed that blog, so I'll follow all the posts.
As for the Reuters' blog, that particular post, I saw a lesson on it. Mario Anzuoni is very clear and honest on his explanations.



Oh shit sorry for commenting twice man...feel free to delete the first one ^^

Hello! Just read your last posts. Been busy doing... nothing. Anyways, always nice to check your latest photos, visit wank's website thru the usual link, read your stories and laugh like hell.

The out-of-focus shot... it hurts my eyes too. Guess it tries to put it back in focus, not a pleasant sensation.

Love the cats... And their texture. Cool that friend of yours - is he a cat person? ;)

Thanks for sharing! Cheers from Brazil!
