Miniature Golf Cony Island NY by Kevin Meredith .One from the archives, I took this in 2006. Unfortunately I don’t think it’s open anymore or at least according to Yelp it’s not, don’t know whether it had anything to do with Hurricane Sandy?
When I have the time I tend to upload at most two pictures a day to Flickr. When I import images to Lightroom I tag potential uploads with “upload to flickr”, I’ve set up a smart folder to show all the images tagged with “upload to flickr” so at anytime I can view my potential uploads, I can’t imagine organising images without Lightroom. If you want more Lightroom organising tips take a look at my tutorial on  how to organise a Lightroom Library on my Blog .

Getting a little trim at Teddy Edwards by Kevin Meredith.With a name like Ace Kelly my barber should be a 70s cop. Unfortunately he doesn’t fight crime and shake down pimps, instead he crafts head and facial hair at the very fine Teddy Edwards Cutting Rooms.

I’ve been shooting in the mornings at the Brighton Swimming Club with an Olympus O-MD EM-5 + under water housing that Olympus leant me. Because it’s quite hard to get a decent shot in the water when you bashed by the waves I just leave it on continues high mode, which means I have a lot animated gif fodder. It’s an amazing camera system, I reviewed the Olympus O-MD EM-1 last year which is an awesome camera.

By the way this giff looks way better on google+.

Jaws queue – Halifax, West Yorkshire – 1977 – © Martin Parr / Magnum Photos

This weekend (15th-16th Match) is the last chance to catch the Tony Ray-Jones / Martin Parr photography exhibition at the Media Space in the London Science Museum. If you live in London and have not seen it I highly recommend you take a look. I wrote a blog post about it last year. I really enjoyed it, it’s a rare opportunitie to see Martin Parr’s early black and white work.

If you did not know it randomly pairs up your photos with another random user’s to create beautiful double exposures.I wrote a blog post about the update.  I also wrote a review on the day of launch. I also had the foresight review a little app called Instagram when it less than a month old. I might have a little form for picking out the winners!
