Every now and then when one of my images goes off into the world to become the background to a host of fonts and graphics and emerges blinking and stuttering onto Amazon and the plethora of other European online book sellers sites, I'm informed that my image has been sold. Now then, because of all the forward planning, running things up the flagpole and holding back release until that all important recommendation from Richard and Judy gets buyers wallets loosened well, I never know what the ISBN of the book is, consequently I never get to see the finished item...until now. Now it's always nice to see what happens to pictures once passed on to the cover/graphic designers...so here are a couple of ISBNs of books using my snaps...
Now then most of the image jiggery pokery is mine the top one is a blokey walking his dog on the beach at Southport and the other is my dear old friend the Gormley sculpture, well one of them from 'Another Place' at that Crosby beach on the Mersey. Both heavy with a banjo sized wallop of Photoshop and if I didn't tell you what they were...well, a million miles away from the original RAW image file. And that's one of the reasons why I like Photography and image making...sometimes you never know what it will look like until it's finished.
What's all this then????
An unyeilding torrent of Photo babbel full of unconfirmed facts and manufactured photo drivel.. take from it what you like, it won't change the world but may leave you feeling nauseous...
