This was the first cog railway of its kind in the world back in 1869. At the top, you’ll find the Sherman Adams Visitors Center with a small museum, a cafeteria,

Photography 101: Image Previsualisation

Expat Journal: Postcards from the Edge

Stephen F. Dennstedt

I like to think of my photography as a creative art form. I am more interested in the aesthetic of photography than I am the technical aspects of photography. But I know photographers who base their work on the latest technical techniques.

And some of their work is very artistic indeed and well thought out. Astrophotography (a relatively new genre in photography) immediately comes to mind and techniques like compositing, exposure and focus stacking are also in vogue today.

Previsualisation (seeing a final outcome in your head before it happens) is almost de rigueur for this kind of photography. I have a very hard time doing this because it sets me up for failure. As a child I had a modest artistic talent compared to my peers—it was both a gift and a curse. For the interested few you can find more details on the biography page of…

“Europe part 8…Brussels to home…”

Emma & Nathan's Travels

Day 9…Friday 17th June

We had had our last day in Europe so it was time to head home. No without a few pit stops on the way though!IMG_5557IMG_5561Another gem from my ‘100 wonders of the world’ book is the Atomium, which we passed on our way out of Brussels. Located on the Heysel Plateau, this towering structure was built in 1958 as part of Brussels World Fair and is now a museum with escalators joining the atoms and views over the city. It was closed as we exited the city but considering how much I loved Brussels, I’m sure we will be back.IMG_5563IMG_5598We stopped in Ypres, France to visit the Flanders Field Museum. When I was in year 11 at school, I was lucky enough to come here as part of a school trip. The building itself was just as beautiful as I recall, but the exhibition…
