GDPR-compliant!?

Hi everyone,

Before I go, I leave you with this thought..

I had this nice shot of some voluntary workers doing a great job restoring a local artwork. I don’t do many people shots and with the new General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) legislation I don’t know what one can show and not show regarding faces so I decided to do my own take on this GDPR stuff.
When one looks back on the great photo-journalism that has been so influential in changing public opinion such as Nik Ut’s Vietnam war photograph “Napalm Girl” I wonder what impact the new legislation will have on such.
It’s something that I’ve been thinking about for some while, how does the new legislation relate to photographs like the one I mentioned?. A naked child running down a road in pain and distress. Under normal circumstances I fully support legislation that prohibits such content in the interest of protecting minors but does the circumstances the picture was taken in justify it?, personally I believe that it does, and could such a picture still be taken today?.
As for my photographic interests the new legislation doesn’t really impinge on them as I much prefer landscape work to “people” shots but it makes one stop and think.

New work “River Kitsch”

Hi everyone,

Someone that I came across on my travels on the “Interweb” thought that one of my works was Kitsch. I respect his opinion and very much appreciate his feedback, it gave me an idea πŸ™‚ Now all I’ve got to find is a local dentist that need some work for his/her waiting room and I’m on to something big πŸ™‚

Spot the buffalo! :)

Hi everyone,

A bizarre title for a post I give you but my other half mentioned that it looked like there was a giant buffalo in the background. I said “Strange I thought I’d have spotted that when taking the shot” πŸ™‚ but I guess that she does have a point! . Surreal! πŸ™‚

It’s a funny ol’ game! :)

Hi everyone,

Funny old game!. I uploaded this work of a tram yesterday. It’s a work that I finished a few days back and thought I wouldn’t upload as I wasn’t completely happy with it but decided to do so after all. It got Explored on Flick and my photo views on Flick are currently standing at nearly 17,000 views for the day. I’m glad I uploaded it nowΒ Β So I decided to stick it on my website, who knows someone who loves trams might fall in love with it and buy it.
