Seeing the unexpected in the ordinary – a day in the life with my newest project: Peaceful Days – By Derek Lluisma

Within one month in Arizona and one week in Florida, I spent my free time photographing everyday surroundings in an increasingly directed manner—strategically targeting specific subjects such as houses, lawns, grocery stores, fast food restaurants, playgrounds, recreational areas, etc. I had no goal—no ambition like with other projects—no intent to create groundbreaking work—but to let loose and have fun. I had a chance to see what I could do with the plainest of things among the ordinary—to photograph not simply the ordinary but the most extremely ordinary among the ordinary—things so boring, common, or ever-present that nobody would bother to really notice nor look at in detail—to the point it becomes unnoticeable or rather hidden in plain sight—such that when described in vivid detail with maximum clarity—it becomes the unexpected. This is another take on the philosophy that anything is photographable.

A Commuter’s Travelogue – by Leah de la Cruz

During my daily commute, I realised that I know nothing about the many stations that I pass and don’t alight at. Are the takeaway shops nicer than at my station? Which has a cafe serving the best oat milk latte? Do the vending machines get jammed all the same? With all these questions swimming in my head, I gave myself the very ambitious task of finding out – one station at a time.

Analog Adventure at Space-X’s Starbase – By Jim Hofman

The secret to surviving the brutal winters in Minnesota is to leave – by taking a warm weather trip to thaw out.  This year my high-school-age son and I flew to Houston and then drove to Space-X’s Starbase in Boca Chica, TX during the first week of January.  He’s an aerospace enthusiast and wants to pursue a similar career path.  I grew up in the age of the Mercury, Gemini & Apollo missions and have enjoyed a lifelong interest in space exploration, so there was no controversy when we chose our winter trip’s destination this year.

Egypt is one of the fifty-four countries on the African continent. One of the most famous cities around the world is Cairo, which has served as an inspiration to one thousand and one dreams. I will not bore you with information about this great continent, country, or city. I advise placing Africa, Egypt, and Cairo on your bucket list of places to visit. This article will discuss my experiences in this beautiful place and the dos and don’ts I discovered.

A Rainy Day in Saltaire – By John Fontana

I live in West Yorkshire and a mere half hour’s drive from the wonderful village of Saltaire with its glorious Victorian mill buildings and associated housing with railway, River Aire and Leeds Liverpool canal all passing through. It is a place frozen in time with its marvellous cobbled streets and back alleys and outbuildings.
