Today’s image was taken in London in the build up to Christmas last year. Part of a very elegant house, the exterior flood-lit, all the rooms alive with light, and the occupants clearly visible as silhouettes – and even a Christmas Tree on display.
Impressive place? It’s actually part of a large doll’s house display in a shop window. Were you fooled, just for a moment? Without something ‘other’ in the frame to provide a sense of scale, we can be easily misled, or find it difficult to interpret exactly what we are viewing and how big it is actually.
And 0n that note I will bid you all an enjoyable weekend. My beloved companion (no, not my wife), my faithful Canon G10, has finally died on me and cannot be resuscitated. I am in mourning and wondering how to replace it. It has to be pocket-able, and must have a viewfinder – at altitude in the Alps, the back screen cannot be seen well enough to compose images. Any suggestions, other than a secondhand G16 which I am seriously considering, would be welcome.
