This week in pictures: “The camera is an instrument that teaches people how to see without a camera.”

11 February 2012 Photo of the Day

I‘ve still been taking more pictures with my iPhone than with my camera this week, partly for convenience but largely just because I am a sucker for the shiny new toy. I like the way I can go and revisit some favourite places and shots and get something a little different from them, like this […]
