September 2019 Favourite Uploads

John, the plaque said that's Eddie Fury. A native of Liverpool like John and Paul and George and Ringo. 😜?

 

Does anyone remember the Dave Clark 5? I covered them for their PR firm in NYC. They were as big The Beatles and the Stones in the early '60s, but they seem to have faded fast. 

 

Thanks for the nod of approval, Allan and John. 😃

A touristy cliche, but I got lucky with the lighting on my evening walk.

Can't see this in the USA from search page. I'm getting this as possible  reason...... " it might be that the image is not available for sale in your country " .......Maybe worries here about copyright of Elvis images.

Billy, right. I'm from the Sinatra-Miles Davis era myself. These are pretty nice bronze statutes they have here. The ones of the Fab 4 walking are really good. 

 

That image is still in QC, Paulette. Sorry.

 

(I just lightened the sky a little behind the figure and resubmitted so that Mr. Fury would stand out more.)

 

I still think of that as a lucky shot but to get lucky we have to show up.

Thankfully Alamy isn't doing anything that draconian yet.

As Ed says you can post an image as soon as it gets an image reference in AIM. You don't have to wait for QC. Only a small one, though.

Ed's not going to fail, naturally.

A bit too early for me to be in Bits and Pieces over them.

Going through my surreal period here. The more I worked on this Artificial Intelligence image the more it resembled an african mask. Which was unexpected, but a good thing.

Apologies to Magritte. But my image is different. Magritte's birds have a sharp edge.

Wow, that looks like a lot of fun, Bill.

It's the Yacht Master's lookout station in Cardiff Bay. It's also a statement of some sort presumably. Either that or the workmen used the first pot of paint they found in the workshop that day.

I have the DVD of their film "Catch Us if You Can" on my desk, look I'm waving it now! Directed by John Boorman. As well as being escapist fun of its day, its also a good travelogue of the English West Country. Bath, Imber,  Burgh Island all figure in it.

 

It must be one of the last Black and White films I saw at the cinema.

This should be visible to you, Paulette.

 

And I lightened the sky and resubmitted the image. Billy Fury, eh? Never heard of him. 🙁

His star burned brightly - but briefly - and he died young. Nevertheless, he equalled the Beatles' record of 24 hits in the 1960s...

I was not trying to be snotty or blaze about the lad. In 1964 I moved to Rome where I had no TV and no radio. Anything that didn't get solid coverage in The Daily American was probably an unknown to me. I didn't know much about the Vietnam War until I went there to cover it. My ignorance was bliss. I'm a failed pop singer myself.

And I wasn't suggesting you were.

 

As a picture idea (perhaps), Liverpool Football Club has this week failed in its attempt to trade-mark the word 'Liverpool'!

We’ve just got back from a break in Dubrovnik, Croatia where I took this shot of the cable car above the Old Town. It took a few prep shots and a bit of careful positioning with the camera to get the cable car in free space above the slope of the hill and tress behind it as it approached the upper station. It was worth the effort though...
