Photo of the day….The Big Issue

I love black and white photography. Its ageless.

I love the tones, the contrast and the way the ‘story’ of the photograph isn’t always immediately obvious.

This shot was taken on the streets of Tokyo, Japan.

I’m a huge John Lennon fan, so was quick to notice his face on the front of the magazine.

The ‘Big Issue’ was commemorating the 30th anniversary of Lennons death.

It really is one of my favourite photos…I hope you like it too… 🙂

So, tell me, what do you love about black and white photography?

I would really love to know….Leave your comments below or connect with me on Facebook or twitter 

Photo of the day..Strawberry Fields Forever

John Lennon has had a huge impact on my life.

I love his music and all he gave to the world.

Strawberry Fields is in Central Park, New York, adjacent to the Dakota building where he was murdered on Dec 8, 1980.

People come here from all over the world to pay tribute to this wonderful musician, songwriter and peace activist.

The area is also called the ‘Gardens of Peace’.

It’s a beautiful place to take a moment and reflect in this huge, bustling city.
