A beautiful little town, a short train ride from Edinburgh.
South Queensferry is pretty little town on the east coast of Scotland just north of Edinburgh. It overlooks the famous Forth Rail Bridge, a quite spectacular cantilever bridge connecting Edinburgh to Fife which is lauded as a feat of engineering even today. It is also the scene of the opening of Robert Louis Stevenson’s “Kidnapped” and perhaps this is why whenever I visit I can’t see anything but a bustling 18th century port with tall ships anchored offshore and lively sailors making the most of their last few nights on land. It’s such a charming little place, I don’t suppose I’m the only one who’s caught himself daydreaming in South Queensferry like this.
Also this was the first film I developed by hand, and it sat (in good company) unloved for months until I bought a scanner – hooray!

My dad and I have been riding our bicycles for as long as I can remember. We had no camera back then, so I only have the pictures from our recent rides. Each ride to the island of Khortitsa today is like a reunion with my childhood and my father's care.
Often we find subjects so interesting, we can't help but train our cameras on them. Most of the time the act of snapping a photo goes by uneventfully. But sometimes, a little trouble finds us. Here's one such story by bloomchen.
Burkina Faso is a country that has three different climatic areas. It's mostly a land of the Sahel, very dry but with some vegetation and a short rainy season. The very south of the country is already in the tropical zone but the north still belongs to the Sahara desert. I had the opportunity to visit this area and witness a magical moment: a sunrise in the desert.
