I take my photographs in RAW, not JPEG, and so I often need to process them a bit - boost contrast levels a tad and maybe even saturate the colours a touch. I'm just looking through some pictures from last week's trip to the new Calatrava-designed train station at Reggio Emilia Mediopadana in Italy and am tempted to just post them as they are. Here's one, cropped square (of course!) but nothing else. #ministract

Just one of the many faces I saw in Italy these last few days. You can see the rest on my blog at http://ministract.com/blog/2014/8/18/faces-of-italy, including Hannibal Lecter, a face by Modigliani, Marge Simpson, a long-haired blond girl with a drinking straw and one of the Easter Island stone sculptures. #ministract

Just started a new series on my ministract blog called Potpourri where I ask a photographer to share their 8 favourite photographs (from their own work) along with the reasons why. For anybody in the UK, the idea is similar to Desert Island Discs. First up with her gorgeous ICM and multiple exposure work is Valda Bailey. Please take a look and I hope you like what you see.

Two years ago to raise funds for AISLA, the Italian ALS/MND charity (thank you to all who bought a copy) and then last August I made another for the same purpose and dedicated to my friend and mentor, Osvaldo Pieroni. I didn't advertise it because, sadly, Osvaldo passed away shortly after the book was published. But I still want to raise some money and so now, five months on, I'm sharing the link. Click on the image below and you'll be taken to a preview of the whole book and, if you're interested, you can follow this link (http://www.blurb.co.uk/user/daruma3) to get a copy in lots of formats - large, small, softback, hardback, PDF or iBook. AISLA will receive all the profit for each one bought, which is £5 whatever version you pick unless it's the iBook in which case it's £3.64.

Four days ago John MacPherson’s partner, Melanie, collapsed on her way in to work, her heart stopped and she’s been in intensive care since. John and Melanie have a little five year old boy, William.

John - a photographer and writer (a wonderful writer) - has been sharing his thoughts on the Duckrabbit blog with words that are at once beautiful and very touching. Read them and I swear you’ll come away a bigger person. 

And if you fear that it’s somewhat voyeuristic to do so then let me share these words from the second article:

“I’m not going to revel in any self-indulgent twaddle gilded with emotion, that’s not me. I have a sense of humour and if I have anything to say I’ll try and make it worth my while writing and your time reading."

John ends that piece by saying:

“All of you who have sent your messages of support over the last 24 hours, many of you are strangers, in so far as we’ve never met. But your support does matter. It does make a difference.

"And to all the cynics who “just don’t get it” maybe one day you’ll need assistance, and whatever that passing stranger may be able to give – at that moment – may be just what you need. Even if all they may be able to offer are a few simple words.”

So, read the one linked below first, then this http://duckrabbit.info/blog/2013/11/i-want-to-say-thank-you/ and then this http://duckrabbit.info/blog/2013/11/the-power-of-photography/. And if you want you can send John a little message via Twitter (@JohnWMacPherson); I'm sure he'd appreciate it.

You may remember that my dear friend and my photography mentor, Osvaldo, was suffering from ALS. You were kind enough to buy a book to raise money to help fight the evil disease. The fight goes on for us but not for Osvaldo. He left this world today and is now at peace. I'll miss him more than words can say...

In the UK, damaged passports take one week to replace. It is, therefore, inadvisable to put one in the washing machine 3 days before your intended travel date. 

This pic was taken in the City of London, which  is where I'll be this weekend rather than Copenhagen...

Request for info I'd like to get Ministract Monday going again - could anybody point me in the direction of a good (and simple!) guide to how the group pages work? If you could include the section on how to make it all work like clockwork without lifting a finger then I'd be doubly appreciative :-)

Many thanks and happy Monday!

Many thanks indeed to +Nathan Wirth for putting me in the spotlight! And apologies in advance if my comments about fine art offend... ;-) Nathan's blog and e-zine are super - as is his photography. Subscribing to his site is well worth it.

I first became aware of +Tom McLaughlan 's photography through +Iain Gilmour  back in 2009/2010.  I immediately gravitated to his work on Flickr-- especially his way of seeing-- and have always felt that he and I share many of the same feelings about what photography is for and what it means-- what it really means.   So it is with great pleasure that I present my latest spotlight and shine the artist light on Tom's adventures into ministracts and schmocusy focusy things.  Tom has produced some of my favorite architectural images, images that are so different in style, theme and approach to photographers like +Joel Tjintjelaar  and +Julia Anna Gospodarou , but equally as compelling, powerful and beautiful. 

As always, I call upon the kindness of everyone to please help me to share these spotlights. Perhaps some of your contacts and friends might enjoy them.  And, perhaps, you might sign up for updates.

Please remember that this is an entirely not-for profit adventure; in fact, it costs me money to run it and I do EVERYTHING ... from editing to arranging.  Why do it then, you might ask?  Because ... quite simply ... I love photography (and far more than my own).  Come on over and join my enthusiasm for the work of others ... there are loads of other great interviews, features, and spotlights on the site as well.

Have just this week started posting to my Instagram account. It's fun! I'm posting daily Ministract shots taken with my phone. If you're interested you can follow me at @ministract. This shot was taken today at London's Spitalfields.

Just started to use Instagram (@ministract) to post Ministract images taken as I wander through my day. Not really sure yet how it works but it's fun to learn. Here's one I took a few days ago of the office building that's sprouting up next door to where I work.

Remember the fundraising that +J A Mortram organised for the scanner for David? Well, it's finally arrived at Jim's house and will be delivered to David later today. Read more in Jim's post. Congrats to everybody who helped this and special congrats to Jim for his leadership. People power isn't dead!

Postcards from the black : David May 2013 UPDATE July 12_2013

Together, we've raised the funds for David's scanner. In fact, the money was raised in 5 days, 36 days ahead of target. 

It's 8.28am and I'm sat here writing this awaiting the imminent delivery of David's SARA scanner, very exciting!

Full story update soon : www.smalltowninertia.co.uk

I’ve been documenting David since he was blinded as a result of a freak bicycling accident 2 years ago. Before the accident robbed him of his sight (David is 100% blind, zero light perception) he was an avid collector of books and an avid reader. His rooms are filled with books gathering dust, their pages filled with adventures, lives, stories and descriptions of visions and vistas that David is unable to now experience.

Together we can raise the money required to purchase a SARA - Scanning and reading appliance; a device designed solely for those affected with blindness and one able to be used right of of the box.

The SARA will allow David to place his books or any other printed material upon it and then convert the printed text to audio that David will be able to hear. From being unable to read to able to read any printed material in 5 minutes.

Renzo's piano. Or, rather, a vent at the Renzo Piano-designed Central St Giles building near Tottenham Court Road in London. Quite out of the blue, I was contacted by Burson Marsteller (who are headquartered at this building) to see if I'd be agreeable to them installing a permanent exhibition of ten or so ministracts. Would I be agreeable? I'll say! They've agreed to let me use it to profile a charity that's special to me, which is really nice. I now need to choose between the Helen Bamber Foundation or Aisla. A happy day.

Riley, my Dad's cat, died today. RIP. Thirteen and a half years old - he lived a good life.
