Two years ago to raise funds for AISLA, the Italian ALS/MND charity (thank you to all who bought a copy) and then last August I made another for the same purpose and dedicated to my friend and mentor, Osvaldo Pieroni. I didn't advertise it because, sadly, Osvaldo passed away shortly after the book was published. But I still want to raise some money and so now, five months on, I'm sharing the link. Click on the image below and you'll be taken to a preview of the whole book and, if you're interested, you can follow this link (http://www.blurb.co.uk/user/daruma3) to get a copy in lots of formats - large, small, softback, hardback, PDF or iBook. AISLA will receive all the profit for each one bought, which is £5 whatever version you pick unless it's the iBook in which case it's £3.64.

+Tom McLaughlan I like the abstract composition and cool color contrast.

This is a super little video. 852 images from 852 Instagram users, stitched together in to a coherent 90 second video. Great fun!

I like it. It reminds me of Hundertwasser.

Introduction

Ministract \ˈmi-nə-ˈstrakt\ - n. Photography. Of or pertaining to that which might be minimal, might be abstract or might even be both. 

Read a bit more here or, better still, just let yourself be guided by these wise words:
  • Ignite the imagination and light the slow fuse of the possible  ~Emily Dickinson
  • I'm looking for the unexpected. I'm looking for things I've never seen before  ~Robert Mapplethorpe 
I came up with the term Ministract back in 2008 and am pleased at the way it's been adopted by people. I'm (the very lazy) curator of Ministract Monday here on Google+ so please join in and tag your shots as #ministractmonday. Come to think of it, why not tag them #ministractanydayyouwant ;-)
