You have seen some of these earlier in my blog. Many great images. The opportunity comes slow like a snail and disappears like a lightning. You better be prepared!

I picked it up in The Washington Post.
High and low, from near and far, colorful and SO much more. Some of the amazing wild life images that are produced by talented photographers.
A crowdfunded photography calendar, created by homeless Londoners, shows off the chaos and beauty of city life.
The project is organised by
Cafe Art, a social enterprise that hosts exhibitions of artwork by homeless people. Their first calendar was created back in 2012 When 105 cameras were handed out to homeless people at St Paul’s Cathedral, the aim was to give them a voice through photography – and it’s now resulted in a calendar of the best images, MyLondon 2017, launched tonight at Spitalfields Art Market, London.
Each photographer was first given training by the Royal Photographic Society, who have since been mentoring the photographers every two weeks to continue to develop their skills
Cafe Art says its aims are to empower homeless people, allow them to tell their stories and raise awareness of their plight
The images selected for the calendar were picked via a public vote in August
‘Painting, drawing, sketching, photography, sculpturing and craft making are some of the many activities that homeless people or those who are socially excluded are encouraged to do to help boost self-esteem, confidence and self-worth,’ Cafe Art say. ‘It is also therapeutic in that it acts as an outlet to channel their feelings, frustrations, anger, but also hope and optimism for the future’
A great idea with some great photos.
I found the article in The Guardian.
I went to Copenhagen for a few days and put my eyes in vacation mood. My eyes went up and down, and all around. That is usually how I do to see the surroundings. Mostly I looked down. Mostly, but not always. On the ground were large plates of thick iron for us pedestrians to walk on over ground work here and there. They all had, I guess, the owners initials. Very graphic. I like to do series. When my eyes find one, of whatever, they always find more of the same.
