Hiya hun.

I prefer landscapes than anything else. I like to take photos of trees in winter when the leaves have fallen and you see the tree, well, it's like it's naked........I know that sounds odd or it just sounds like me  ;)

I've taken several photos of a couple of protests. My first was in New York, it was to do with the escalating problems in Iraq. There was only one photo that I liked out of the lot. It was of this woman holding a sign saying Iraq, let our people live, or something like that. But it's the look on her face, it captivated me, she warmed my heart. It definitely didn't hurt that she was a hotty as well though, well, to be honest that's why I took her photo  ;)

The second protest was to do with oil and petrol. The protest stopped at a petrol station where two guys who climbed onto the roof with a banner. They had those ghost masks on, the one from the Scream films. It was definitely an exciting half an hour, the protest moved on leaving the two guys while the police moved in to arrest them. Now that was fun  :)

Not really no  :( Can't afford to do so just yet. I have been to Switzerland a couple of times. The last time I was armed with a couple of films. Still need to get those developed.

I hope to plan a trip up to Scotland next year though, want to get some lovely landscape pics of the highlands  :)

A couple of films on a holiday?  Was a time I would burn half a dozen (in those days I was taking about 20 to 30 reals of film a year).

Now I have gone digital, so I don't think in terms of films, only in terms of megabytes, and normally will use up most of the 1 gigabyte of flash memory I have for the camera on a holiday.  OK, a lot of that is because I tend to bracket every shot, so in reality it is only about a third as many actual unique shots - and even then, it is often just the same thing from slightly different angles.

It was mainly down to my camera jamming and then ripping the thread on the film, and I was there for 3 days  :(  ::)

That might be an interesting compilation of photos.. You could sell it for a million, Daniel.. People educating them selves reading you could make some money while you do it! Stranger things have happened...LOL

It kind of reminds me of work that Gilliam Wearing did. She would get people to write anything they wanted down on a piece of paper and hold it up while took their photo. Love her work along with Andy Goldsworthy.

If you don't know, Andy makes sculptures and photographs them, like this one  :)



And Gillian Wearing, well she is an odd one, some of her photos are a little out there  ;)

But this is what I was on about above

Actually very cool! You should do well! It is sometimes the oddness of a thing that makes it sought after and very interesting!
