In the 13 years I have shot weddings and indeed the 20 years I have studied photography I have never used the square ratio on my digital camera. I may, from time to time have cropped an image after the event but have never seen the world in a square at the time of shooting - aside of course from my old medium format cameras!
My friend Steven needed to go to Glasgow today to film some B-roll for a project he's working on. So I tagged along and shot some street while he grabbed some footage. It wasn't intentional, but when I started to look at the photos in Lightroom tonight, There was more than a few people lost in their phones.
The world is a beautiful place!
Life is far too short!
These things are worse than the crack pipe!

It happens every 20 years or so, that a tropical hurricane takes a different path through the atlantic, and instead of dying out over Greenland, it goes sightseeing in northern europe. Hurricane Ophelia recently took this path. It blew over Ireland, but it dragged along a cloud of the Sahara sands mixed with smoke from wildfires in Portugal.
Three incidents all mixed into one coherent point in time. On October 16th, 2017 around 4 o'clock in the afternoon it rolled over London. What immediately followed was a light so different, so outer-worldly, that it looked like the coming of the Apocalypse.
