I would simply like to make the following casual comparison observation regarding two different photo composites by different photographers at different times.
These are ‘Blue Moon’ by Max Operandi, 2012, and ‘Moon Worship’ by Thornback, 2014.

I really approve of targeted advertising. In my experience it’s been a win-win situation. (And more generally, I’d say about 80-85% of my happiness and accomplishments in life have been due to searching- and sharing-technology, but that’s a topic for another essay.) In the summer of 2012 my liking a Facey B page on Wittgenstein led to my seeing an ad from Riding-Iceland for a horse trip that would follow the trek that young Wittgenstein and his pal David Pinsent made 100 years earlier in the south of Iceland.

Over the Christmas period I managed to dash outside into the cold with a suitable model in tow on a few occasions. Here are three of my winter portraits from the last couple of weeks.
