Very interesting, thanks for the link.

I do find it annoying that they felt it necessary to zoom every image though. It means we only get to see the full image for a couple of seconds before it's moved on. That spoilt my enjoyment of the images themselves.

I'll have to look up a book of his work instead.
Best regards, John

Nothing special for me, but the viewing was ruined by the
BBC zooming out on just about every photograph and
killing off the impact that you get from looking at a still
photo.

I think we should all take more pictures like this. They gain importance and significance as time goes by.
I quite agree about the tricksy zooming. Says a lot about programme makers who seem to think we have a very short attention span...
Best wishes,

Andrew

I agree about the panning and zooming, it's an old trick with still images on tv but they should have known better here.

Thanks for the link - even though it did pan/ zoom a bit too quickly, still very enjoyable!

Its a shame. Some excellent photos. But I like my eye to lead me through a photo. I don't want someone else doing it for me.

The last shot is amazing but a once common place scene

There's some nice Bri-Nylon shirts in their hangers hanging on a line

Not as nice as these 1950's Boxers (same period) mind you!
