A must-see, highly recommended if you're anywhere near Plymouth.
 
Exciting new paintings are being put together for my 2015 exhibition at Art Source Gallery in the Royal William Yard starting Friday 24th September. I have never been this organised for a show before but I have been working on the paintings for quite a while. Still more to do but this is a taster.
If you want a mini preview you can visit me in my studio this weekend!

A glimpse at what's in our very near future. This is so cool - and such cool terms used together in describing it: "femtosecond", "3d", "hologram", "laser", "plasma" and "voxel".
Love the fact you get tactile feedback, too. Game changer?
Move aside HoloLens, the future of display technology is femtosecond plasma-based holograms

Suffrage and women's rights. Who do you know that's passionate enough about this hot topic that they want bags declaring their support?
Please share with them :)

I just found out that the opposite of extinct is extant. And now I see it is - a neural connection made betwen two pieces of now-connected knowledge ;)

Story

Photographer and Business Analyst - Curiosity killed the cat....
Introduction
Black and white photography is my passion but with everyone now being a photographer, I've hung up my camera for anything but purely personal gratification. I've had work published in Photo magazines and the BBC has frequently shown my work, commissioning a photo essay from me for the relaunch of their Devon website.

My day job for 8 months of each year is as a freelance business analyst. The limited company, Crocus Information Ltd, is the vehicle behind my various revenue streams.

Like many, I've focused on an online income and I run a successful Zazzle store at zazzle.com/HightonRidley To help me with promoting I developed some automation tools. They worked so well, that I also sell them on ZapMeCash.com where I also have details of my affiliate program.

I use the automation tools on a few of my blogs, including CoordinatedWeddings, PillowsULike, WatchesULike and BagsULike and these are good examples of what can be achieved.
Bragging rights
Commissioned By BBC for relaunch of Devon site - Banksy was chosen for the Bristol one! Merged the payment processing organisations of the Inland Revenue and HM Customs and Excise when they became one: HMRC. The integrity of the entire UK's cash flow was in my hands. All went smoothly!
