One Nation under CCTV, originally uploaded by naughton321.

A snap I took the other day – not so much the quality of the pic as the magnificence of Banksy, who is, in my opinion, one of the most interesting artists around today.

Go here for more of his brilliant graffiti.

Good Father by Rarindra Prakarsa.

As opposed to the Godfather. Lovely shot – Rarindra seems to consistently get great results and this is no exception. Fantastic tree too. Let’s hope it doesn’t get hacked down to clear space for biofuel crops.

Another object of wonder from Reciprocity.

Cap:

For new viewers: These are refraction patterns or ‘caustics’ formed by a light beam passing through a shaped and textured plastic form. The pattern is captured directly on to 35mm film by removing the camera lens and putting the transparent object in its place. The processed film is digitally scanned for uploading. Please note these are not computer generated images but a true analogue of the way light is refracted by the objects I create.
