How did Google Translate help me?


Google Translate and Google assistant are very useful tools. So far I used Google translate on a few occasions to help me reverse the menu of a few monitors from Chinese to English or to read the Menu in a few restaurants in Turkey. The best part is that you don’t even need to know what language the text is written in. Just use Detect language feature. Numerous apps, websites and devices have the ability to translate between different languages. However, Google has two apps that can translate on iOS/iPadOS and Android smartphones if you ever need to interpret a […]

Isabelle’s 6th Birthday Party at Stay and Play


Isabelle’s 6th birthday party was a total success. She dressed in a Wonder Woman costume. Everyone else dressed in their favourite costume too. My daughter has chosen Elsa. They danced and jumped up and down for hours. Thought-out the evening they met their favourite heroes: Mickey & Mini Mouse, Peppa Pig & George, Spider-Man & Baby Shark, and to top it all up Moana, Belle, Anna, Elsa and Rapunzel. The highlight of the evening was the foam party on their favourited tunes. To quote my daughter: “was the best party ever”! Tips for my fellow photographers I used a Canon […]

How to retouch and colorize old photos in Adobe Photoshop 2022


If you are interested in learning how to retouch and colorize in Adobe Photoshop 2022, find below a short tutorial explaining how to quickly do it. Without a doubt, my favorite new feature in Adobe Photoshop 2022 is one of the Neural Filter called Colorize. I used this filter with hundreds of black and white images and I am impressed. Bland and lifeless images suddenly come to life. With certain images the Colorize filter does a decent job from the start, but will look better if you spend a bit more time and fix any colour inaccuracies. Below are a […]

Licensing Images for a Charity Project


Lucy Gaster contacted me and asked if she could use some of my drone images of Romford and Southend for a charity project she was working on. She didn’t have a huge budget, but needless to say the film is now finished, so if you’d like to take a look you can watch it here – Michael Landy’s Welcome to Essex – Documentary:

Carnage in the chicken coop


Last night we’ve had an unexpected visit in the chicken coop with devastating results. Seven of our chickens were killed, two are missing and one managed to escape. We don’t know for sure who did it, but we believe it was a ferret. A few chickens were decapitated, some I found dead. One was dragged and left in the garden. The ferret must have taken the chicken with grey feathers because was the fattest. I collected all of them and pilled them up in one place. To my surprise the chicken who escaped climbed on top to pay her respects, […]

Power outage in my area


This morning around 5 am I have experienced a power outage in my area and the entire valley went into complete darkness. In all fairness, it was snowing quite heavily throughout the night and sometimes power lines can be affected. I don’t know what actually has happened, but luckily the power came back in about two hours. I took my phone out, turn off the flash and snap a 30 seconds long exposure image with the camera against the window. After a bit of processing this is the final image. On an overcast day this is how it looks like.

366-2020 – Goat Dance


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about a Romanian tradition called the Goat Dance. Capra is the name of a traditional Romanian dance, performed around New Year. It’s executed by a young man with a goat mask and a sheep skin on his back. The ‘goat’ and his companions go from house to house, dancing at each door on New Year’s Eve. This custom is first mentioned in Descriptio Moldaviae by Dimitrie Cantemir. FREE Digital Image Hungry for more beautiful images?

361-2020 – Snowy Bob the Snowman


Today’s photo of the day, part of “a photo a day challenge 2020”, is about the “Snowy Bob” the snowman ⛄️. When I asked my daughter what’s the snowman’s name she quickly responded: “Snowy Bob”. We used pebble for eyes, carrot for nose, two parsnips for mouth and two brooms for hands. Let’s hope tomorrow will be able to make a bigger snowman ⛄️. In this image the snow appears orange, because the street lights contain vapour of sodium and cast a orange hue in the presence of electricity. Below is the same image in which I used the eye […]
