A Full Revolution (Around the Sun)

July 17th, 2010

This is a special day. Today marks the one-year anniversary of my website and blog!

One full revolution around the sun completed!

In that time, some 9,000 individual visitors have checked out my website and blog. 🙂

I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for your support over this last year. I’ve learnt much in that time.

Today I want to share with you photographs by a master whose work I’ve recently gotten introduced to and fallen in love with. Those of Yousef Karsh (December 23, 1908 – July 13, 2002).

That shot of Churchill glowering at the camera? His. Taken just after Karsh had plucked Churchill’s ever-present cigar from his mouth.

Another of my favourites is his portrait of Pablo Casals.

You can check out Yousef Karsh’s official website here. 🙂

Thank you again for all your support. Stay safe. And check in often. There’ll be much more coming soon!
