BIG NEWS: After an absence of about 8 months I've finally posted some new galleries to our all-new online photo album. Nothing too arty, mainly 'people' pictures, but still worth a trip I hope. I've also got some new galleries of arty shit up at my soon-to-go-live website, Persistent Vision.
Moving very quickly onto some REAL photos: fellow Toycamera addict, Photogeek, recently got home from a tour of duty w/ the US Forces in Iraq. He's just posted these very cool Holgas that he took while he was out there. Most definitely worth a look.
I met up with Lew today near Bank tube. The young camera warrior had the very good sense to buy a copy of the Toycamera book (see below) and was in town to pick it up in person. Hands across the sea and all that...quite a moving moment :-)
Don't forget World Toy Camera Day is fast approaching and by all means check out the rather wonderful Toy Camera book (featuring 4 nasty little photos by yours truly). We're selling it for £20 inc p+p to UK addresses and £21.50 inc p+p to Europe, so get in touch if you fancy a copy.
radical - 1398 (adj.), in a medieval philosophical sense, from L.L. radicalis "of or having roots," from L. radix (gen. radicis) "root." Meaning "going to the origin, essential" is from 1651. Political sense of "reformist" (via notion of "change from the roots") is first recorded 1802 (n.), 1820 (adj.), of the extreme section of the British Liberal party (radical reform had been a current phrase since 1786); meaning "unconventional" is from 1921. U.S. youth slang use is from 1983, from 1970s surfer slang meaning "at the limits of control." Radical chic is attested from 1970.
