It's funny what makes a good photograph


So sometimes it isn't the lighting or the composition or the youth and prettiness of the subject. Above is a picture of the parents of Oisin Byrne sharing a joke at the opening of his exhibition at the Cecilia Brunson Projects in Bermondsey, London. His pictures grace the walls behind them, and the walls are covered in his designs. This is one of my favourite pictures from 2016 so far. And yes, his parents were as lovely as they look and their character explains, I'd imagine, the beauty of their son.

Something of an online zibaldone, albeit not on Tumblr where one might otherwise expect to find such things, "Mrs Lemon's Visit to Japan" takes its name from a poster seen in Cornwall advertising a talk at the local Women's Institute. I hope there is something here you like.

NB If you go back in time far enough on here some of the photos start to disappear - not sure why. Whatever is happening with the missing pictures, apologies.
